>> It has been two years since the first Hunger Games film was released in theaters, and since that time it has grown into a franchise that has captured positive attention from fans and the most credible critics around the world. Last weekend, the latest installment in the franchise arrived to the big screen and upheld it predecessors’ success with a tremendous storyline, a mind-bending plot, superb acting by Jennifer Lawrence and company and a cliffhanger that leaves fans begging for more. If there is one negative part about this film, it is that there is not enough action to keep the audience on the edge of their seats. Yet, if you read the books, you know that this film was meant to serve more as a necessary stepping-stone, which upheld its duty of setting fans up for the real action, which will arrive in theaters next November. This film continues the tremendous legacy of The Hunger Games franchise, and is definitely worth two hours of anyone’s time.
