3.0 out of 5 stars Not great, but a fun watch, 5 April 2014
This review is from: The Hunger Games - Catching Fire (Blu-ray)
The first film surprised me by being more entertaining than I'd expected, this did the same although not as well as the first one did. It's the same basic layout, although this time the stakes are higher and the top and tailing is a bit different. It takes it a while to get going, but once it does it did enough to keep me watching. The games this time are a harder set than the last, but with a bit more politics thrown in.

Some of the details niggled me a bit more, mainly because the film drags a bit so I ended up dwelling on them a bit, so what the hell I shall complain away :-) The peacekeepers have the most ridiculous uniform that was clearly designed to be amusing to look rather than intimidating (and this is coming from a Star Wars fan). The gimmicks in the games were a bit over the top, but they were fun.

The big issue for me was the ending, while it's a reasonable cliffhanger it was also abrupt and a bit unsatisfying, although I guess it's done in its job in that I'll no doubt watch the next film to find out what happened. And complaining aside, this was an entertaining watch.
