This second installment of the HG series is worth your time and money, with spectacular action plus special effects sequences with a good fairly original plot line. Jennifer Lawrence is not only a fantastic young action star, she can also act with the best of them holding her own next to the great Donald Sutherland. Sutherland's President Snow character ranks high among my list of all time best movie villains. Great special effects, martial arts stunts, and a good story that follows the original books well make this a great holiday movie. 4 stars for the Hunger Games Catching Fire- and unlike the terrible Thor 2 and Lord of the Rings The Hobbit I can't wait to see the final movie of this trilogy.
