Evan Dickson is jumping on the bandwagon, raving about Lionsgate’s epic The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, which sounds as if it broke free of the “young adult adaptation” stereotype proving that you can make a good movie if you let the director do his thing. Now we celebrate that Francis Lawrence, who also directed Constantine and I Am Legend, is returning for the two-part The Hunger Games: Mockingjay.
“Catching Fire is better than the first film in almost every way,” says Dickson in his review further adding that “the film barely even feels YA. The stakes are much higher, the characters trend older and the whole thing feels very much like a solid dystopian action film.”
He shockingly declares, “Catching Fire might very well be this generation’s Empire Strikes Back.”
DAMN. Get me into a theater STAT!
