Just in case, don't take my witty remarks personally or anything dude, I just love verbally sparring in posts. Your points are valid, but the onus is on the director to bring together all the components to fully realize the true concept that the film is trying to portray to the audience.
Honestly? I.. really think the movie is a rush job, and will probably look like it too. I wish they had taken their time with it, but Lionsgate wanted a super early release date, so they really couldn't. If they had waited a little and gotten some more time they could have cast younger actors (i.e., the girl from True Grit, who should have played Katniss, IMO) and spent a lot more time developing everything. I mean, I know this is like 20 seconds of trees, then a shot of her eyes and then her running from a fireball, but.. I dunno, I'm prepared to not like it.
