The Hunger Games return with such a sequel twist that you can't believe writer Suzanne Collins didn't think of film when writing. Catching Fire builds up with all types of subversive messaging which is interesting but also brings into relief the limitations of the genre and film.
Not averse to stepping over the line, New York cops Divinci (James Belushi) and Rodriguez (Tupac Shakur) do what it takes to clean the hood of drug dealers. But when they accidentally kill an undercover DEA agent, they try to cover it up by framing a homeless man. The two soon find themselves drawn into even deeper deception, however, when they're tasked with solving the murder. Dennis Quaid and Lela Rochon co-star in this tense drama.
