** In the books, Haymitch is described as having dark hair, typical of the Seam. In the film version, he is blonde.

Added DiffLines:

* PaintingTheMedium: While Katniss is cutting off the tracker jacker hive, she gets stung a lot, which leads to the editing and visuals briefly getting messed up and distorted (and that's before the hallucination) to reflect her disoriented mental state.

Added DiffLines:

* AdaptationalUgliness: There was a lot of complaining by fans that both Josh Hutcherson (Peeta) and Sam Claflin (Finnick) are too ''un''attractive for their roles.

* AdaptationalCurves: When Jennifer Lawrence was chosen to play the lead, enraged fans almost immediately complained that she was too voluptuous to play Katniss Everdeen, for whom being perpetually underfed was a defining trait.

* AdaptationalCurves: When Jennifer Lawrence was chosen to play the lead, enraged fans almost immediately complained that she was too voluptuous to play Katniss Everdeen, for whom being perpetually underfed was a defining trait. Lawrence responded that she felt that "she shouldn't need to starve her body for her art" when young girls were watching the film, which quieted many of the critics.

* InformedAbility: The Career tributes are trained for years, yet they ignore basic survival stuff such as the use of sentries and are prone to FailedASpotCheck. This incompetence is handwaved/paired in-story with their arrogance.

*** Clove is a spice, a nod the character's brash nature.


Added DiffLines:

* WillingSuspensionOfDisbelief: In the book, Katniss gets clobbered by a much older and larger Clove when called to the Feast. In the film, supposedly 16 year old Katniss is played by an early-20s Jennifer Lawrence, and Clove has been aged down to 15, and ''on top of that'', she's played by then-14 Creator/IsabelleFuhrman, who was ''tiny'' for her age. The film version of this fight is not so believable when Clove is clearly half Katniss's size. The film [[HandWave handwaves]] the discrepancy as Clove simply being much more trained than Katniss, but even then, to expect that Katniss would one-sidedly lose to the much smaller Clove is a stretch. CinemaSins notes "age differences at this point in child development matter: Katniss should easily dominate this other girl."

** There is a brief shot of a toteboard for Capitol gamblers containing tribute information such as name, height, age, and weight. If you pause the movie, you can see some descriptions of tributes that were left out of the books.



** And at the conclusion of the film, the same fate is forced upon [[spoiler: Seneca Crane, for his actions leading to both Katniss and Peeta making it out of the Hunger Games.]]



** [[spoiler:Glimmer]] may be the creepiest example, given the [[{{Squick}} condition]] the tracker jackers left her in.
** [[spoiler:Rue]]. Katniss gently closes [[spoiler:her]] eyes right after.

Added DiffLines:

** The sequels had a different director than the original film, which comes through in the overall gritty, almost indie feel of the cinematography and music scoring of the first film. The later films are much more polished.


Added DiffLines:

** CinemaSins [[LampshadeHanging Lampshades]] this scene in their video on the film, stating "wanted to simply kill her a minute ago, now wants to monologue."

Added DiffLines:

*RaceLift: The people of The Seam are implied to be people of color, with black hair and olive-toned skin. (This would make Katniss and Prim multiracial, with Prim passing as white due to looking like her mother). Gale, Katniss, and Haymitch are all played by white people.
**FoxFace and Sae are also implied to be East Asian. "Fox face" or "kitsune gao" is a Japanese term refering to women who have a narrow face with high cheekbones, close-set eyes, and thin eyebrows. Red hair is also a rare East Asian trait. Sae is a Japanese name.
