Review: 'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire'
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Jennifer Lawrence lights up the screen as the brightest young star of her time, playing a role model for young women everywhere in the sequel to a hit that earned three quarters of a billion dollars.
Fought and won alongside Peeta Melark, who she must pretend to love, Katniss saves her true affections for Gail.
However, fans of his take note: despite all of the public appearances, by Liam Hemsworth, who plays the character, his role is a little more than a cameo. She hits the road on a cool train, and finds the districts are on the verge of a revolution and millions now look to her to help ease their despair.
Donald Sutherland plays the dictator, Snow. Philip Seymour Hoffman co-stars and the guy who designs "The Hunger Games."
The epic is at least a half an hour too long. I found the games to be too long, but I found the games to be exciting once you get there, and tens of millions of young fans will probably say they can't get enough of it.
