THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE begins as Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell), a competition that could change Panem forever.

This is a great movie. I was hoping they kept close to the book and it does mostly. I understand why they had to make changes.
Jennifer Lawrence is as always fabulous. you see more of Katniss's inner turmoil from her this time. Josh and Liam support her well. I think the only down fall is I would like to have seen more of the emotional destruction the 74th Games had on Katnis and Peetr as in the book Collins is very sympathetic to the emotional strain they are both in and how it bonds and divides them both. I hope the next instalment shows this more because the bond between the two isn't explored enough this time round. SPOLIER - I shall explain just before and at the reaping for the 75th games Katniss is begging Haymich to do everything he can for Peetr. In the movie this comes from know where. In the movie 1 minute Peetr and Katniss are not even talking and the next she's begging to save him. bit of a plot fail. Ok as the movie moves from there you begin to see her feelings growing, but I think the movie just needed a bit more before that.

Donald Sutherland does a sterling performance and is truly menacing. SPOILER - I know he never went to see Katnis in district 12, but his presence on the screen made you believe he would kill Katnis.

Phillip Hoffman Seymor (RIP) is fabulous. Selfishly - I hope he filmed his parts before he departed us so sadly. He's just perfect as Plutarch.

I have to say all the cast have done a sterling job. I can't wait for Mockingjay. Shame it has to be in 2 parts! The books not that long, so I hope they do not divert from the novel too far.

I'd been looking forward to the second in the series with great anticipation,
the first was in my view indeed brilliant.
The winners of the 74th Hunger Games 'Katniss Everdeen'(Jennifer Lawrence) and
'Peeta Mellark'(Josh Hutcherson) have to leave their families behind to embark on a victory
tour organised by the 'Establishment' and read out the pre-written speeches, much to the annoyance
of the tour organisers, the pair are not playing by the rules.
District by district is visited by the pair, 'Katniss' begins to sense the undertones of
a rebellion, a observation not missed by 'President Snow'(Donald Sutherland)
The President announces a deadly 75th Hunger Games with a few rule changes,this time former winners
will be matched against each other.
'Katniss' and 'Hamitch's' name are drawn from area '12'.....quickly 'Peetra' offers to take
'Hamitch's' place an offer that cannot be overruled, so the winners of the 74th are back in the fray.
Candidates from many of the other districts are considerably more experience
than 'Katniss' and 'Peetra' which makes them rank outsiders, odds that suit the
President's intent, as he believes that the districts are inspired by last years winners.
Let the Games begin.............
'Jennifer Lawrence' is again outstanding in her role as 'Katniss Everdeen'
An exciting and often tense adventure with several superb action sequences
within the created jungle in which the ruling establishment try to orchestrate the outcome of the games for both entertainment and of course self-preservation.

'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
Very Good Film Brilliant
By Mervyn Catley 24th January 2016

I like to say have seen this Film on Sky Movie's on 22nd January 2016.

This Film, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is the much hyped sequel to last year's The Hunger Games. I, along with everyone else, was extremely excited for this film, as I adored the book and consider the first movie one of my favourites of all time (seriously).
I went to see Catching Fire in IMAX to get the full experience and I'm pleased to say that I was far from disappointed. Almost everything about this movie was an improvement on the already brilliant original.

Firstly, the direction from Francis Lawrence (I Am Legend), was much better than the work done by Gary Ross. One of the biggest complaints about the first film was the use of shaky cam by Ross, but there was barely any shaky cam in the sequel. The action sequences were a lot smoother because of it, and the quieter scenes were improved as well. Lawrence has a flair for action movies with a big budget and strong special effects, and I'm so happy he'll be directing the final two movies as well.

The acting remained fantastic, especially from Jennifer Lawrence, who continues to prove herself as one of the most capable actresses working today. Josh Hutcherson did a much better job this time around, as did Liam Hemsworth, even though his screen times was limited. Supporting players Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Donald Sutherland, Woody Harrelson, Stanley Tucci, Jena Malone and Sam Claflin were all stunning as well.
The special effects were vastly improved here. In The Hunger Games, the effects were decent but under par for a blockbuster adaptation. However, in Catching Fire the effects are dazzling and really enhance the movie.
