The Hunger Games: Catching Fire
Adventure • PG-13 • 2013 • 2 hr 26 min
Worse than the first imo, cool in visuals but you can tell they spend most of it revving the engines for mockingbird 1 & 2
Has to be a set-up for the two-part finale, but still badass nevertheless.
Look, it’s pretty much the same as the first one, and yes, very predictable, but did thoroughly enjoy the film nonetheless.
Liked that they put more of the game play in this movie, but they left out a lot of the context to the story, again leaving on a cliffhanger
Gets a little confusing if you haven't read the books but you can see that they tried their best to be true to the book
Arguably the best movie of the Hunger Games franchise to date. Relatively faithful to the book, well-acted, & higher stakes than film 1.
The first half of this movie is my favorite part of the entire franchise. Tension builds, the world grows, and the protagonists compel us.
omg this movie was so good. Probably better than the first one, the suspense, the action, the new characters. very good and intense
Rare to find sequels that are just as good or better than the first.
The beginning is kind of slow, but it ends up being the best movie in the series
Every year in the ruins of what was once North America, the nation of Panem forces each of its twelve districts to send a teenage boy and girl to compete in the Hunger Games. Part twisted entertainment, part government intimidation tactic, the Hunger Games are a nationally televised event in which “Tributes” must fight with one another until one survivor remains. Pitted against highly-trained Tributes who have prepared for these Games their entire lives, Katniss is forced to rely upon her sharp instincts as well as the mentorship of drunken former victor Haymitch Abernathy. If she’s ever to return home to District 12, Katniss must make impossible choices in the arena that weigh survival against humanity and life against love. The world will be watching.
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.
Katniss Everdeen reluctantly becomes the symbol of a mass rebellion against the autocratic Capitol.
With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale, Finnick, and Peeta – Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.
