Movie Info

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.

Audience Reviews for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

    To me, "Catching Fire" is better than the first movie as this one concentrates more on the characters around Katniss, and the politics of Panem.

    This has to be the most boring film I have ever seen in my life. I walked into this film with moderate expectations, the reviews coming in were good and Hunger Games wasn't a bad film. I walked out of this film half dead, it took 90 minutes to get in The Hunger Games and my god it was the longest 90 minutes of my life. The story wasn't interesting in the slightest it was just boring dialogue scenes talking about random stuff no one cares about. The only redeeming part of this film is that like usually Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen does a great performance but all the other actors are just dreadful, they are lifeless and have no purpose. The director Francis Lawrence shoots the action scenes quite well compared to Gary Ross who shot the action sequences using shaky cam but what makes the first film better is that it is better paced and less tedious. This film gets 2/10.

    "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is a great sequel to 2012's "The Hunger Games". This movie has excellent acting, great plot and some pretty good special effects. It's is a fun SCI-FI movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes the first movie. And I give "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" a 8.5/10.

    Not as good as the original. The ending was very unsatisfying.
