4.0 out of 5 stars Spoilt by the re-jigging., 12 Aug. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hunger Games: Catching Fire - Triple Play [Blu-ray + DVD + UV Copy] [2013] (Blu-ray)
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!
