Critic's Review

Plot: Katniss finds herself battling anxiety issues a year after winning the 74th Hunger Games. Her nightmares come true, when she is once again targeted by the Capitol, in an attempt to crush an oncoming revolution. Will the odds be in her favour this time around?

Review: Catching Fire picks up where The Hunger Games (2012) left off. By winning the previous season, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) are on the radar of the Capitol, for instilling a sense of hope among the oppressed people of Panem. Fearing, the two may spark a rebellion, the Capitol decides to clip their wings and move them around like chess pieces. A twist in the games by President Snow, throws them back into the bloodthirsty arena. Can they identify 'who the real enemy is'?

If you like 'grim dystopian sci-fi films', Catching Fire is a spectacular 'edge-of-the-seat' thriller, which is unnerving, emotionally intense and immensely engaging. Unlike most sequels, Francis Lawrence ensures that his installment is not just a remake. While the first focussed on the deadly games, this one's more about the political moves and strategies.

The film is strangely unsettling and uplifting at the same time. An early scene in the film shows Katniss, sitting alone in a train compartment, staring out the window. She reminds you of a bird trapped in a cage. Its metaphors, unsaid emotions like these that make the film brilliant. 'There are no victors, just survivors'. The story has an acute relevance to contemporary society, where we are expected to be pawns in our day-to-day lives.

Can you put your life on the line for others? Suzanne Collins' teenage-pawn-turned-rebel protagonist Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) fights her own battles, making her one of the best role models of young adult fiction. All performances are solid but Jennifer Lawrence is the soul of the film. She makes you want to raise your fingers (District 12 sign) in respect of her incredible understated performance.

Spine-chilling cinematography evokes that much required eerie feeling throughout. Dramatic costumes are another highlight. The film makes our hopelessness pit against our own indomitable spirit of survival. Who wins?

So, for a long time, I avoided The Hunger Games. I had seen and loved Battle Royale, and I felt like The Hunger Games would be a more PG version of that. But I decided to watch the first film, and I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed it. But this one is even better. I walked out of this film really pleased. It does have similarities to the first film, but I think this one does everything better. It has a lot of really interesting twist and turns to the story to keep me wanting to know what happens. The film ends in a way that really leaves you wanting to see the next film so you can find out how the rest of it plays out. I would say this film can appeal to both men and women, with it's mix of action, drama, and romance, and that works to it's advantage. If you enjoyed the first movie, you will love this one. This is how blockbuster movies should be made. Entertaining, but done in a way that feels like effort has been made.

The film 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.

As usual, Jennifer Lawrence steals the show. Awesome performance by her. The movie is a well directed one and is surely better than the first flick of the series. Always a good omen when the second one is better than the first.

I rather believe a lot more action scene could have added and the source of the last stunt was too obvious. It is a disappointing that governor(or president) was stupid to not notice it. But what made me watch this movie and keep me waiting for the next sequel is the story behind the whole event. The concept of how people are being distracted by some useless things on TV is clearly the main theme. Hope the ending is not too stupid. I suppose i shouldn't be expecting someone Mahatma Gandhiji comes and inspires people to gain their freedom, respect and equality through peaceful means.

I have been waiting for this movie so long. This the second franchise of "Hunger Games". The first half of this movie is quite slow and like it is starching without any motive. But the twist is not predictable till the very end of this movie. Both Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson done good job. If you leave the 1st half then it is a very good movie.

First of all those who haven't watched it yet I would suggest download it. Not as much as expected from the first part. The main battle in arena struggle and action part could have been made more cutting the first slow boring parts, but maybe that was too important for the story to build up. With two more parts coming soon, it is one time watchable.

not as expected, plot is still out in open katniss is dragged again into arena, with a mission to control the outburst, the revolution only to realize that she herself is missing the bigger picture. Jennifer does justice her character by emoting all emotions she had to, however i really felt if her face could bear some more features in emoting, nevertheless, im not an expert maybe the script was in that way. peeta and finnik did the best and loved haymitch, still unpredictable, must watch for those who like thrillers
