Can you not tell that they are bonding?
Complaint #24 – They never touched on how Cinna and Katniss formed a close bond.
TFGeekGirl, TheFandom.Net – Again, I’m not sure what this person means by saying that they “never touched” on the Cinna and Katniss relationship. In the books, it’s all in her mind that she likes Cinna, something that she doesn’t ever say it out loud, so Jennifer Lawrence is supposed to express that in her face, which I believe she does after Cinna tells her that he doesn’t see any point in costuming her in the traditional District 12 outfits tributes have worn in previous years. You can see that genuine subtle smile in her eyes and mouth, that expresses her appreciation of him. Then there’s that part when they hug and touch foreheads before she has to go in the cylinder. How is that not a display of a close bond?!
Luly – As many people has said already, this movie is more about showing than telling, and the way that Katniss behaved around Cinna in comparison to how she was around the rest of the people from the Capitol (for example Effie and Caesar) speaks for itself. She seemed to trust him and to be herself around him, she talked to him with honesty. The scene where she’s about to enter the arena is also very strong. They couldn’t include more than that, but I think it was enough.
Tanvi, Hunger Games Network – I don’t agree with this at all. In a movie, you have to precise and to the point, and Katniss and Cinna had great scenes together. I was pretty happy with the portrayal.
