This week The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is released in theaters. Starring Jennifer Lawrence, the sequel continues where the first film left off, as Katniss is once again thrust into the Hunger Games arena. The film also welcomes the return of Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, and Donald Sutherland.
This week we will be reviewing the first Hunger Games film, as well as The Condemned. Hunger Games stars Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss, a young teenager who is chosen in a lottery to represent her district in the annual Hunger Games competition. The Hunger Games is a survival-based competition, where competitors are pitted in a battle to the death.
The Condemned stars Steve Austin as a condemned prisoner who is purchased to star in a television show. The show features ten convicted prisoners who must fight each other to the death, with the winner receiving their freedom in addition to a cash prize. Vinnie Jones also stars in the film as one of the other prisoners.
