Product Description

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.

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 She on fire 28 Mar 2014
Format:DVD
This is a really great adaptation of the book. The really great thing about this movie is that it did stay true to the story but used but it added things to it that might have been missed in the book. The acting was top notch. Jennifer Lawrenceas the played lead of Katniss Everdeen perfectly. Some of the people I watched this with brought up a great point, when you have a really good lead actor giving a great acting performance it encourages or forces the rest of the cast and crew to up their game and give the best performance they can. If I had not read the book, I would not have seen many of the twists or turns coming. Always a mark of t a good film is that you do not realise that 2 hours have passed while watching it. I really enjoyed this film.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely perfect 14 April 2014
By Miranda
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Firstly, the package arrived a day early which was great as it was much awaited. The packaging was perfectly sized and everything arrived in top shape.

Secondly, the movie itself was beyond brilliant. Having seen it several times before in the cinema, I was still blown away by the accuracy of the film in comparison to the book. The Hunger Games was a fantastic film in itself, but I think the screenwriters of Catching Fire really outdid themselves and did a superb job writing (I noticed many direct quotations from the book which I was thrilled about). I have nothing but positive comments for all the fabulous actors; Jennifer Lawrence really does make the perfect Katniss, and I was particularly enthralled by the performances of the actors playing Finnick and Johanna (both introduced in this film). I truly hope that both parts of Mockingjay live up to this extremely high standard, and if anyone is questioning whether or not to buy this film, then I would without a doubt recommend it to anyone. As a firm believer of reading books first, I would of course say that reading the book prior to watching would be ideal, but in actual fact it is not a necessity (it just adds to the emotion and understanding).

I was disappointed in some of the scenes cut out of the film (Madge had already been cut from the entire franchise, but I was looking forward to meeting Bonnie and Twill) but I suppose that it would have been near enough impossible to include everything.

So that's five stars from me, and I hope that if you do end up buying this film, you shall love it as much as I do because I really do think it is truly spectacular.

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.
