It’s pretty high up there on the scale. The first time I watched it I couldn’t get out that nagging in the back of my head picking out missing things/what was different/etc. But after the second & third time, I truly enjoyed it. I think the casting is spot on & even though compared to the book it seems really rushed, they got the point of it spot on.
I like what Donald Sutherland (President Snow) says here that sums it up for me:
Kevin McCarthy: My favorite line in the whole film is that you say, “Hope is the only thing stronger than fear.” It’s a wonderful line!
Donald Sutherland: “That’s not in the book! It’s Gary Ross. He’s a writer of such intelligence. He was able to get the very essence of the film, the book, everything, in a couple of words. He’s able to say, ‘Okay, we take 24 people. We could kill them all. Why not? I’ll tell you why not. We leave one alive, because hope is stronger than fear.” Hope is a spark, it gives people hope, a spark. You have to be careful that spark doesn’t become a flame, because that flame will burn you.”
