The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Catching fire

*POSSIBLE SPOILERS*

Hunger Games has once again lived up to the hype and returned in a brilliant second instalment. 

Leaving off where we ended in the first film, Katniss and Peter are about to leave for their victory tour of the districts after they won the 74th Hunger Games, but trouble is brewing. Katniss defying the Capital has not gone unnoticed in the districts and as she and Peter try to stick to the script and get through it the revolution has already begun.

Those who have read the book will know what to expect in this film because it sticks exactly to the story but maybe, like me, you were wondering “How are they going to do that?”

How are they going to do the clock arena with the many different disasters, from poisonous gas to a giant tidal wave?

They do it and they do it well.

Without giving too much away, the love triangle is still very much alive. With Katniss and Gale’s ‘relationship’ known by Snow, Katniss and Peter are forced to fake it not just to prove their love to the districts but to Snow so he will keep them and their families alive.

And if you hadn’t guessed it yet, there is another Hunger Games. But it’s not just any Hunger Games, it’s a quarter quell which means rules don’t apply. Just when Katniss and Peter think they may be safe they are thrown back into the arena against 22 former Hunger Games victors.

Things are a little different though, now that some of the tributes know who the real enemy is.

This is a must see film. Literally, buy your tickets now. I go to the cinema about three times a year max and this is the one film this year that I was counting down to. And it wasn’t just me. I’ve read the books and I loved it but my boyfriend hasn’t even watched the trailer and he thought it was brilliant too. So whether you know the Hunger Games or not you are bound to enjoy this.

The final book “Mockingjay” is going to be divided into two and the third installement will be out next year with the final the following year. Can’t wait!

    I’ve read the first two books but seen neither of the movies. I hope they come here–eventually. Otherwise, I suppose there’s Netflix. Thanks for the review.

    Hugs from Ecuador,

      Did you like them? I love these dystopian stories so I guess that’s why I’m a bit obsessed

    It does feel like a filler addition to the franchise at times, but still is worth your time and money. Good review Megan.

    I have seen all the series until now. Big fan. But apart from the first one, so far the last two haven’t met my expectations! I did not read any of the books. Nevertheless, looking forward to the last part!
