Plot Outline:

Based on the second book in Suzanne Collin's Hunger Games trilogy: Following their dual victory in the Hunger Games, Katniss and Peeta find themselves on the mandatory post-games victory tour through each of the districts. Katniss also finds herself torn between her relationship with Peeta and Gale. Yet their subversive victory has stirred up some districts and rumors of rebellion run rampant. The Capitol must figure out a way to quell this growing unrest and comes up with a novel solution for the 75th Annual Hunger Games: bringing back past winners to fight once again and this time there will be no compromise. -- Chris Kavan

Better than the first. Had loads likable characters, wonderful action and stunning visual effects. The story moved smoothly this time around. A very much nice improvement from The Hunger Games.

'Catching Fire' is the superior sequel to last year's solid adaptation of 'The Hunger Games'. I'm not being the least bit biased because of my love for the second novel. This sequel is a true improvement over the first. This time, the condensing of the novel is handled much better. The themes seem to shine through stronger, while all of the main plot points are represented with supreme accuracy. Any changes in story are extremely minuscule and the few new additions are welcome expansions. Much more character development is present and the action scenes provide more excitement. The new actors play their parts exactly how I imagined. 'Catching Fire' is easily the best sequel of 2013.

Medien Satire

Eigentlich müsste doch jede Frau ihr rebellisches Alter Ego aus der Teeniezeit in Jennifer Lawrence' Katniss Everdeen wiederfinden? Weibliche Verstrickungen und Hoffnungen paaren sich mit dem Willen zur Freiheit im Allgemeinen. Das alles vor dem Hintergrund einer oberflächlichen Medien- und Sozialkritik: Der post-apokalyptische Staat Panem ist einfach aufgeteilt: In der Hauptstadt Kapitol gibt es alles im Überfluss, in den zwölf Distrikten herrscht Not. Jedes Jahr zwingt die totalitäre Regierung jeweils einen Jungen und ein Mädchen aus den Distrikten zu einem perversen Spiel: Den Hunger Games: Live, vor laufenden Kameras, müssen sich die "Spieler" gegenseitig umbringen. Die Sieger der letzten Spiele hiessen Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) und Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson)...

"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" by Yojimbo

Katniss and Peeta's success in the previous games has led to them becoming a symbol for civil disobedience despite the best efforts of the establishment, so the president calls for a new tournament in which the surviving victors are sent back to the arena to fight and thereby destroy either her or her credibility. Catching Fire continues the franchise in a bigger, bolder and more spectacular manner. The themes that were really only touched on in the first film are more fully explored and we see more of the world they must inhabit. The teen-friendly gloss once again prevents any real grittiness or bleakness which makes the film still seem a little toothless considering the themes of oppression and fascistic violence, but this sequel still has more depth and style than the original. It does...

abrupt ending. but otherwise enjoyable

well its better than the soppy borefest that was the first movie but I am odds with this one. i was actually really enjoying it for what it is and was thinking its really good but then it just ended when it was finally getting going.
did she kill anyone before it ended? i don't think so. as with hollywood and these types of films they seem to do anything to shy away from showing violence. the whole film is the hunger games about killing to survive yet what did we actually see? not much. some monkeys some mist some water and maybe a single arrow.
its very much made for the twlight fans while pretending to be something much more darker than it actually is.
i gave it 4 stars as i did enjoy until it ended.but i hated it when it did suddenly end..now i understand there's a 3rd part but if ...
