I am NOT a huge Gale fan in the book (sorry) but Liam did an awesome job of making me like him. First, the accent was amazing (or maybe I'm just used to R-Patz trying to be American w/ Edward, but still). Second, he comes off as more vulnerable. He's more of a dreamer than I thought. Loved the end w/ him having Prim on his shoulders.
Josh did a great job as Peeta. He wasn't MY choice for Peeta, but by the end of the movie, he was. He was stoic and noble, but kind and loveable. You felt his love and his fear at knowing no one would be on him to win. I wish they had more establishing the relationship, but I understand pushing the political aspect instead of the triangle.
The movie was great. I may even see it again tomorrow.
