Review:

After deceiving The Capitol to save her own skin, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) tries to settle back into normal life in District Twelve. The Capitol, being unhappy with her conduct, sets out to make this task as difficult as possible, especially when the Districts don’t believe her ‘act’. In order to get her life to get back to normal, Katniss must set out to quell a rebellion, a rebellion that is spreading from District to District like the eponymous fire.

This second movie in Suzanne Collins’ Hunger Games trilogy doesn’t disappoint. Reeling off the worldwide success of the first movie, LionsGate spared no expense in the production of this movie. And it shows! With stunning visual effects in the recreation of The Capitol and the arena and a continuance of a fantastic score by James Newton Howard, this fantasy movie rivals the best.

While this film doesn’t require any advertising to bring it success, it brings together some more top-names in Hollywood (Jeffrey Wright, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone) just to boost its chances at some top awards. No matter what your film tastes are, you can only but appreciate the on-screen wonder. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is a must watch for any film fan.
