Jennifer Lawrence reprises her role as Katniss Everdeen in the second instalment of the sci-fi adventure trilogy based on the novel by Suzanne Collins. Fresh from her triumph in the 74th Annual Hunger Games, Katniss, along with fellow winner Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), returns home to District 12 for some much needed rest. But soon after, while on a 'Victory Tour' of the other districts, she becomes aware of growing dissent to the Capitol's rule, and realises that rebellion is in the air. As Panem prepares itself for the third 'Quarter Quell' (75th Hunger Games), autocratic ruler President Coriolanus Snow (Donald Sutherland), still smarting from the Capitol's humiliation in the last games, stacks the deck to ensure that the upcoming tournament will wipe out any resistance from the districts once and for all.

Set shortly after their pyrrhic victory in the first instalment, we re-join Katniss and Peeta as they’re herded about by the media being forced to support the establishment while the rumblings of revolt, started by their defiance in the Games, grow ever louder. To quell the popular uprising, the odious President Snow inaugurates a special version of the games with the aim of accidentally-on-purpose getting the rebellious pair killed.

This movie is much darker and more emotionally involving than the first, dealing deeply with themes of love, betrayal and honour but it is, by no means, dull and introspective. Totalitarian brutality is never far from the surface in the downtrodden Districts during the lead-up to the games and once they commence the contestants form unlikely allegiances serving to both unite the districts and thwart the President’s intent.

The cinematography and CGI are of course stunning, the whole look and feel dovetails seamlessly with the first film and the whole thing has an almost Potter’esque (Harry, not Dennis) feeling of continuity as we follow the physical and emotional development of the tributes. As with the first film, the cast are great, the action never stops and the whole flashy package is smartly executed, but this second movie is far less superficial. But put all that cerebral stuff to one side… the ending!!! OMG - as the really annoying text-speak puts it – how can they do that to us?

The next, eagerly awaited instalment in the franchise, “Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1” is scheduled for US release November 21, 2014 but us lesser mortals are probably going to have to wait the best part of a year before it’s out on Blu-ray. Oh yes … we shall be re-watching the previous movies in fervent anticipation.

'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).

I missed this one when it was out in the cinema. I know, right? I've just finished watching it at home and I do wish I'd seen it on the big screen, though it still looked pretty nifty on the decidedly smaller one in my living room.

What I like most about the Hunger Games film franchise (so far) is that it stays true to the books, while adding in a few subtle changes that enhance Suzanne Collins' original story - I guess this could be partly down to Collins being one of the scriptwriters. Catching Fire doesn't stray far from the book and I was glad to see this, as Catching Fire is my favourite book of the trilogy. I was a little worried that the film wouldn't quite do it justice but my worries were abated within the first half an hour or so, when I was completely transported from my living room to Panem, once again.

The casting in Catching Fire is so strong, and it's the ensemble cast that makes this such a brilliant movie. Jena Malone is a revelation as surly, aggressive Johanna Mason and Sam Claflin really is Finnick - I can't think of anybody else in the movies who fits their role more perfectly. Mags and Wiress both broke my heart in two, as they did in the books, and I wish Lenny Kravitz and Elizabeth Banks could have a prequel spin-off! Well, obviously we know how things turn out for Cinna but, yeah. SAD FACE.

The film looks gorgeous and the design of the arena really helps with this. Rich, full greens and blues from the forests and oceans - visually, it's a treat to watch. In fact, the whole thing's a darn treat. I had a huge to-do list of things to work through this morning and decided to stick the film on in the background... Two hours later and my eyes hadn't strayed from the screen and my list was just as long as when I woke up. Oops.
