Early reviews are in, and critics are saying "The Hunger Games" lives up to its hype and is just as gripping as the book series penned by Suzanne Collins. 

According to the San Jose Mercury News, "The Hunger Games" has everything a blockbuster movie should have: a standout cast, loyalty to its literary roots, a palpable intensity and plenty of special effects.

The movie opens Thursday at selected Redwood City and San Mateo, and Friday throughout other Bay Area theatres.
