Pretty good adaption of a great novel. Really hit hard the emotional aspect of this future dystopia in heart felt realistic manner.
The first one was a bit of a stretch, but you let them pass, it's acceptable. The 2nd one was just ridiculous. So many blatently unbelievably stupid plot holes it's difficult to feel any immersion or be moved by any of the ludicrously dumb scenes.
really good movie i like it
Sad it doesn't have 120fps
An even stronger adaption of its source, combined with Lawrence's direction, Arndt and Beaufoy's script, the performances of Lawrence, Hutcherson, Hemsworth, Harrelson, Banks, Kravitz, Malcomson, Shields, Hoffman, Jones, St. Esprit, Wright, Plummer, Claflin, Cohen, Dawson, Malone, Tucci and Sutherland, Howard's score, Willems' cinematography, Bell's editing, Messina's production design, Dias's set decoration, Summerville's costume design, action sequences and visual effects, Catching Fire is a darker look into the world of The Hunger Games and a great one too!!!
More exciting than its predecessor, largely due to the excellent direction by Francis Lawrence, the spectacular script by Simon Beaufoy and Michael deBruyn that addresses more than relevant themes, the formidable soundtrack by James Newton Howard, the beautiful visual effects and the incredible performances by Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Stanley Tucci and Donald Sutherland, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, moreover, achieves the difficult feat of overcoming its predecessor
One of the best sequels ever made. It is right up there with "The Dark Knight", in terms of how one elevates every aspect of what made the original unique and special and good and then takes all of that and makes it 100% greater and more compelling. Katniess Everdeen, portrayed flawlessly by Oscar winner Jennifer Lawrence, is simply the greatest heroine of our time...
A very strong sequel to the original, it expands on everything. It allows for a significant amount of world building, and takes the simple original, and makes a more complex story.
The series is very much catching fire with a sequel that packs quite a punch without being too repetitive. (A-)
The Hunger Games series kept up it's exhilarating pace with this follow-up. It doubles down on everything that made the first movie great, with innovative additions to stop the Games feeling repetitive. They really captured the essence of the games very well. Every single component added fitted in seamlessly.
The same problems with the Original rear their ugly heads though. The build-up, although it has some good moments, feels even longer and even a little paint by numbers. It seemed like they were really stretching to find enough material to fill out the runtime which leads to a lack of any real substantial story building. This film could easily have been shortened for a tighter and better flowing picture.
It ends on a cliff-hanger that will leave you excited for the next movie. It's a solid addition to the franchise but maybe they could have joined it with the next movie. That could have made both movies better.
