    My English Coursework is to create a film review on 'The Hunger Games Catching Fire' but I'm struggling to do this. So far I've done a basic film review, my teacher has told me that I've used relevant structure,Writing style is suited to a film review. Effectiveuse of vocabulary.However I need to use more of a range of punctuation and vary sentence lengths/styles.

    So this is my Film Review, could you please help me improve this.

    The hunger games catching fire is an action*packed film which casts Katniss Everdeen(Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) who played their roles amazingwell. After winning the 74th annual Hunger Games, Peeta and Katniss are going to avictors tour.Director Francis Lawrence was nothing short of an excellent choice for the directors chair.He managed to keep the violence and shock without ever crossing the line. He keeps youinterested and invested in the story. He also makes you entertained with a cliff hanger. Heis also the director of Constantine, I Am Legend, Water For Elephants and other brilliantfilms.The costume and make*up for Effie, Katniss and Peeta for the Hunger Games Ball wereextravagant, a little 'weird' and elaborate but it did fit the puzzle. The computer generatedimages and special effects were realistic for the baboons part of the film. However thecatching fire costumes looked a bit fake.Katniss and Peeta plays a massive role in the Hunger Games Catching Fire as they arethe tributes. Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson) plays a supportive role in the film ashe is the mentor and didn’t appear in the film that much. Katniss and Peeta werepersistently providing balanced performance without disappointing the audience. Katniss'speech to district it was emotional, convincing and heart felt. Caesar Flickerman'scompering was hilarious and cringe*worthy which kept the audience amused.The film was based on the book, Hunger Games Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. Thefilm is also similar to other futuristic films; such as Divergent and Maze Runner becauseboth requires action.If you want an action*packed, entertaining film, full of cliff hangers then you must go forthis film.

    Thanks you so much for reading this please help me improve this.
