5.0 out of 5 stars True to the book - no spoilers 23 Nov 2013
Format:DVD
'Catching Fire' is my favourite book in the 'Hunger Games' trilogy and I wasn't disappointed by the translation of it to the big screen. Yes, some scenes have been left out or changed, but with the changes I personally think they work better for those seeing the film who haven't read the books. Overall, it's very faithful to the book.

The directing, special effects and acting all bring to life the darkness and emotional intensity of the story. Starting soon after the 74th games, Katniss and Peeta (along with their families and mentor Haymitch) are living in Victors Village. But with the victory tour of the other 11 districts, where all the tributes died in the arena, about to begin, and with rumours of a rebellion, it seems life is not to get any easier for Katniss, Peeta and Haymitch.

I don't want to spoil the film for anyone who hasn't the read the book so won't add any spoilers. Suffice to say that 'The Hunger Games' set the scene and 'Catching Fire' takes the story to a whole new level. It's a heartbreaking, shocking, breathtaking, suspenseful, funny, moving and thought provoking rollercoster ride of a film. Jennifer Lawrence is particularly outstanding as Katniss, although all the performances are strong. I'm only sorry we now have a wait a whole year to see the next installment, 'Mockingjay Part 1'.

Incredible, memorable film, well worth seeing even if you haven't the read the books (although it might help to see 'Hunger Games' first as it really does set the scene and will help you understand the background).

5.0 out of 5 stars A spark of rebellion 20 April 2014
By Paul Tapner TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Second in the Hunger Games films series. Which adapts the second book of that particular young adult dystopian science fiction trilogy.

It's not a good jumping on point if you've not seen the first film. So go and start with that if you haven't.

If you have seen the first film but not read the books:

Katniss and Peeta are now back home in their district. But their experience in the games won't go away in a hurry. Katniss has post traumatic stress [very convincingly depicted and portrayed] and just wants life to go back to normal. President Snow starts to see signs of rebellion, all inspired indirectly by what Katniss did. He send her and Peeta on a tour of the other districts. Where, among other things, they see how life in these places is a contrast to the opulence and decadence of the capital.

Then comes the next part of the President's plan. A new games that will take care of Katniss and all the other winners, and stamp out any rebellion before it can spread.

Sooner or later, Katniss is going to have to make some very important choices...

Her central dilemma is very well depicted, and it allows her a lot more character development across the course of the film. Which has a different director to the original, but new director Francis Lawrence does manage to keep pretty much all of what was done before but add to it as well. Not least with new uniforms for the guards, which look more threatening.

It's a long film, but as with the first one the first half zips along very nicely. It's only once we're in games territory again that it seems to slow down for a while. This segment does manage to be completely different from what went before, and has very memorable moments.

4.0 out of 5 stars Spoilt by the re-jigging. 12 Aug 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
In this case I read the book first, and part of the magic was that it continued to be from Katniss's perspective. We wonder what is going on behind the scenes just as she does, and that uncertainty added so much for me.
It is easy to understand why the producers would want to give Donald Sutherland and Philip Seymour Hoffman much larger roles than the characters they play have in the book. The trouble is that to do so, they end up filling those mysterious areas with one particular and not really satisfying possibility, adding a whole new questionable line of action in the process.
We get something extra which for me both detracts from the appeal of the story and leaves less time for action taken from the beautifully structured book itself.
The work of the film and effects makers easily deserves five stars, it is the re-jigging of the storyline which makes me give it just four.
What a shame!

By Maciej TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
I found this second, more serious and much darker "Hunger Games" film, even BETTER than the first one. Below more of my impressions, with some limited SPOILERS.

First let's say that this film sticks to the book very closely. Of course there is no way you can show during 145 minutes everything that a book contains (and therefore the characters of Bonnie and Twill among others are not shown), but I believe virtually everything important is included. And that is a precious thing.

All actors did great. Jennifer Lawrence who plays Katniss Everdeen is of course THE STAR of this film, but everybody around her performed also flawlessly.

The best performance is offered by Josh Hutcherson who plays Peeta Mellark, a young boy madly in love with Katniss and linked to her in most complex ways since a long time. This role is the most difficult in all film as Peeta is a most complicated character: a baker's son, weaker than many of other young males around and definitely not born to be any kind of hero he nevertheless soldiers on through all the hardships and relentlessly pursues the woman of his life through all the nine circles of hell - and beyond...

Much more attractive, stronger and very manly Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth) is by comparison a little bit easier to play, but the events put him also in a position not easy at all... Which gives a quite interesting love triangle.

Young actors who play new characters of Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin) and Johanna Mason (Jena Malone) were very well selected. He is an extremely handsome and very vain young hunk - with brains and a plan.
