Yes, it lives up to the hype! Fans of Suzanne Collins' bestselling book will be thrilled by this eagerly awaited adaptation, which pretty much gets everything right. And newcomers will be captivated by the chilling story of teens forced to take part in a brutal televised battle to the death. The novel's graphic violence has been toned way down, but the most emotionally wrenching moments still connect. Most important, the cast is uniformly excellent: Jennifer Lawrence is flawless as the saga's heroine, Katniss, and Josh Hutcherson and Woody Harrelson also stand out. The worst part? We have to wait until 2013 for the sequel! -- Dan Jewel
