Catching Fire, the highly anticipated Hunger Games sequel starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth, hits theaters on Friday, Nov. 22.
Here now is a sampling of what the critics are saying. You know, to help you decide whether to see it or not.
Oh, who are we kidding? You’re probably already in line.
• “The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is crowd-pleasing and compelling, most of all because of its fiery, charismatic heroine,” writes Claudia Puig of USA Today. “It’s almost as if the role of Katniss Everdeen…was written expressly for Jennifer Lawrence. The Oscar-winning actress can nimbly pull off the dazzling fashion-show moments in this futuristic drama, as well as the considerable action exploits and emotional shadings required of her tortured character. Whether on the runway or shooting an arrow, Lawrence is powerfully convincing.”
