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.

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 i understand there's a 3rd part but if ...

The games are NEVER in your favor!

Fans of the Hunger Games were disappointed with the first movie and rightfully so. The film was pretty good, but didn't do the book justice. With a new director for the second book, they did not make the same mistake twice. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is a very loyal adaptation of the novel.

The story picks up from the first film, where Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) return to their homes in oppressive District s of Panam. Katniss's unprecedented act of near-suicide during the last Hunger Games had been seen by several citizens as an act of defiance against the government. Naturally, President Snow (Donald Sutherland) is not happy with the situation and hatches a plan to kill Katniss before she causes more unrest all over his domain. He or...

Review: The Hunger Games Catching Fire

The major sin of 2012's The Hunger Games (directed by Gary Ross) was that it never had a chance to truly grab the viewer and keep them gripped as our characters were facing an essentially life or death situation. It didn't take its time to develop the setting or characterizations. Katniss was a badass, sure, but that was really it. It lacked the emotional intensity that it truly needed, and when it came times for the Hunger Games, that feeling of uneasiness was never present. Plus, that shaky-cam was just dreadful. Now, in Francis Lawrence's much-better sequel, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, everything is executed and delivered as an exact opposite of the first. This film grabs you immediately. It takes its time to develop the plot and the characters and the problems they face. Katniss ...
