Loved the book, LOVED the movie. This movie had no notable flaws. I thought hard about that last sentence; it's staying.

The story stayed true to the book to a T. It kept all of the parts I wanted to see, sped thru parts that it could afford to, and even added the background conversations between President Snow and Plutarch that we never read in the book, but must have surely happened for events to unfold the way they did. Philip Seymour Hoffman is excellent in his new role, in the few scenes he is in.
