This is one of those movies that get overrated because there is nothing wrong with it. It's not a stupid movie, it's not badly made, etc. But half way through I realized that nothing interesting was going to happen and I was just waiting for the movie to end, so that I could move on to something else.
Painful to watch, which I guess is the point. Unflinching portrayal of a cruel, bleak world, with a dogged protagonist whose strength, stoicism, and love for her family stands out as a beacon of humanity and decency within an otherwise irredeemable society.
Jennifer Lawrence delivers a fantastic performance and the aesthetics/tone of the film were haunting - even, at times, beautiful. Admittedly, I didn't enjoy watching it - the subject matter is heavy and there's not really any sense of hope to cling to. But that comes down to my personal tastes rather than some flaw within the film.
