Catching Fire (Francis Lawrence, 2013, USA)


W O W.

I’m completely speechless…and I knew it was all coming because I have read the books!

It’s been a long time since a film has left me as stunned as Catching Fire – the last time I felt like this I’d just finished reading the books!

The sequel to The Hunger Games comes in at the tipping point of a revolution where the oppressed districts are looking to Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) to be their beacon of hope through the coming dark times. President Snow (Donald Sutherland) will do anything to ruin Katniss’ image before murdering her as she is a danger to his carefully culled society.

Catching Fire is more violent and gritty than the first film, and I just can’t fault it! Every place, every character and every action happened just how I imagined it from the book!

Just read it, watch it and join me in the fan-girling!!
