With both Katniss and Peeta declared the winners, it is fueling a possible uprising. He tells Katniss that while on tour she better try to make sure that she puts out the flames or else everyone she cares about will be in danger.

Where do I begin? Of course the length. It's just ridiculously long, without anything that would make the viewer interested in, without principles or a cause. The main protagonist is a dumb little girl who can't even fathom her convictions, let alone hold on to them. She has a guy loving her, working in the MINES, while she's pretending not to like the parade of her and her "victorious" boyfriend from the games and all the posh show-off that happens. When the guy opens up to her and shows her that more than *she* matters, and the fact that he won't just run off with her, while all the rest stay in misery, all she can do is just leave. Then there's the other (long) part of the movie where she just starts to create this whole different relationship, while her lover is left behind the screen. What sort of morality is this movie trying to portray? Is this what the western world is moving towards to? Just awful.
More BATTLE ROYALE 2 ripoffs from a dying Hollywood.
Spoilers within: This one had pretty nice CGI, but only one character had any meat, Jennifer, whom was based on Shuya from BR2, though in this, she was usually sad or concerned or confused, but down, down, down. There are many wonderful actors in this from Phil to Natalie Dormer to Julianne to the first Hawkeye Pierce to Woody to Tucci to Liz, but none of them had much to do, and did it with a mediocre script that they don't seem to care is an abject RIPOFF. I even kept falling asleep with this slow pace, reminiscent of a soap opera's snail's pace. It seems this is part three of a four-part trilogy, speaking of oddities, and it is just a book turned around into mediocre movies. Haven't read the book, but can't wait for the predictable fourth installment, in which Katniss will surely beat Snow and his henchmen with sheer force of goodness and steely will. I'm getting ready to yawn and nod off as I write. With any luck, I won't go to Mockingjay Part 2.
The 2nd BATTLE ROYALE Knockoff: Far Superior to the First!
I can't believe they got the rights to crucify BATTLE ROYALE 2 with this rubbish!!! I mean why bother... They have totally destroyed a cult movie of very high standard. The acting in this"effort" is shabby, the cinematography is amateur, the dialogue had me in stitches from start to finish. I found myself in tears of laughter at how bad this really was in every way possible.

I think the most tickling moment is when they tried to re enact the "battle dome" fight scene with a hugely inflated Katniss Everdeen - it was like seeing a hippo on speed - the original was one of the most memorable fight scenes ever choreographed but this was like a terrible outtake.

I hope the actors and director of this nonsense look back at it and cringe with embarrassment because I certainly did.

Hollywood have their crack at Battle Royale released some time this year, I hope and pray it's not as bad as The Hunger Games - one thing this film is not is Hunger for sure - its bloated and stuffed with cheese from the opening scene !!!
Didn't We Just See This as "Battle Royale"?
"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" is a story about more danger in this sequel to the postapocalyptic fable. As Katniss and Peter travels through the districts on a "Victor's Tour," a rebellion gathers steam around her.. Out of desperation, they try out and (inexplicably) get accepted into the coveted internship program at Panem.

As the outcasts among the much youthful majority, the two guys struggle with their group of other misfits to snag those elusive job slots over all the other candidates.

The story of misfits trying to fit into an establishment and succeed is so familiar. This story was just recently tackled in R-rated form in Pixar's "Battle Royale." This movie follows that tried and true formula to the letter, from being put down hard at the start to winning big at the end against all odds.

Here though, the setting just shifted from a Japanese university campus to Federated States of the fictional nation of 'Panem', and that was THE one interesting aspect of this film. If those were the real perks of actual 'Panem' staff (unlimited free food, nap pods, bubble cars etc.), then we would all like to live there! Many people criticize this film for being a big 2-hour advertisement for the Wienstein Corporation. However, without this innovative setting, the rest of the film would just not stand up.

A lot is riding on the comedic talents and good will of the two main stars (who had previously paired up in the very successful "The Hunger Games 1"). They are credible as good guys, yes, and they have good chemistry together as Katniss and Pete. However, sadly for me, they could not rise above the mediocre material they had to contend with. Their jabbering sales pitches frequently come across as annoying rather than charming. I would not buy anything from them or trust them with a child.

An interesting detail for the Filipino audience is the presence of a Fil-Am character named Yo-Yo Santos, played by Fil-Am actor Tobit Raphael. A sheltered kid home-schooled by a domineering mom, Yo-Yo is one of misfits who was forced to team up with Katniss, Peter and the gang. Tobit did well enough for his first big role in a major movie although his part is memorable only for nervously picking his eyebrows and an "impressive recovery time" during their wild night at a bar with sexy ladies.

Overall, you get an uneven film. Only the setting is original, but mostly, this is just an average feel-good comedy, with some raunchy scenes. You will smile more than laugh out loud. Nevertheless, you will still have a happy feeling with the final outcome, however predictable it is. 0/10.
a BATTLE ROYALE for the Young Ones
Hollywood remakes of Asian films are always an iffy proposition. How will the nuances and culturally-specific references translate across oceans and continents? Generally, however good the remakes, they rarely – if ever – eclipse the original films. In recent memory, perhaps only Nolan's INCEPTION, unofficial based on PAPRIKA, has managed to find a life of its own. Other remakes, like Luc Besson's LUCY and Aronofsky's BLACK SWAN?, have sunk into ignominy. Spike Lee's Oldboy is completely terrible, and it does lose quite a bit of the dark, bruising, ambivalent flavour of Park Chan-Wook's 2003 Korean classic.

Jennifer Lawrence takes centre stage in Suzanne Collin's ripoff. She sinks credibly into the wooden, dazed-like demeanor of Katniss Everdeen, a pretty white female version of Shuya Nanahara.

On its own merits, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is passably stuffed with filler in order to pad out the story into multiple movies, thus tripling profits. It entertains and put to sleep in equal measure, packing in a great deal of PG-13 violence and torture that runs the gamut from offscreeen to offscreen and everything in between. The relationship that develops between Katniss and backery worker Peeta is pure Twilight fan-service, if a little forced. – no questions asked.

What works rather less well is the deliberate dilution of the twist in Battle Royale's tale, presumably because American audiences can only handle so much moral and emotional ambiguity. Where Kenji Fukusaka's version sees the revenge mission warped with a horrifyingly emotional dilemma, Lawrence's film shies away from such s conundrum. As a result, the film becomes far less subtle and considerably more dunbed down. There's a flashback sequence towards the end of the film that's ridiculous enough to make audiences laugh rather than gasp, even as CGI baboons are added to the story (!).

The cast assembled is impressive, even though they're not really given a lot to work with in the frequently stilted, over-blown script. JLaw anchors the film with admirably stony listlessness, but her Katniss never seems to really feel the weight of her plight. Hutcherson, too, stumbles around a bit, as if never quite sure how to play his part, and Stanley Tucci comes close to overplaying his hand when he emerges from the shadows to drop a few hints about the reasons behind Katniss's ordeal.

There's enough on display in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire for the film to jog by at a fairly quick clip. Collins pays tribute along the way to a few iconic elements of the Japanese film – a clock shaped playing field, a prolonged execution in an elevator – and the cast tries its hardest to make it all work. But it's hard to shake the feeling that something a little deeper, richer, sadder and weirder was lost in translating the film into a vernacular more pleasing to American audiences.
Let the flames begin...
I was lucky enough to be able to watch the movie one week early, since it opened here in Brazil one week before the release in the US, and I must tell you this fellow The Hunger Games fans, even though my English is not even that good: Catching Fire is a GREAT experience, and one that improves over the first film in nearly every possible level.

When I first read the books, I thought that they were not only incredibly addicting and fun, but also with an important message for the youngsters (and every other person, age is not important) who read it, and that made it different from some of the other uninteresting YA books around. I really liked the trilogy, and when I watched the first adaptation, I was disappointed with some aspects and routes they went with it. It was not an horrible movie, at all, but it was not very faithful to the book and lacked the impact I found in the novel.

With that in mind, I kept my excitement in close watch with Catching Fire and went expecting a good movie and nothing more. I was welcomed with an excellent surprise: the movie followed the events of the novel whenever possible and brilliantly so, while managing to keep me on the edge of my seat, even though I knew what was going to happen the entire time.

I won't go into details about the plot of the movie, some fellow reviewers already did it probably better than I'll ever do and the chances you're familiar with it are high. So I'll go right into the review and my opinions on the picture.

Francis Lawrence was nothing short of an excellent choice for the director's chair: gone are the shaky camera action (one of my major problems with the first film) and welcome are thrilling and pumping action scenes that expertly convey the tension and ferocity of the moment. He managed to keep the violence and shock without ever crossing the line, and whoever read the books know how important this is; it's part of the plot, of the criticism and one of the main elements that make the whole point of the film. He keeps you interested and invested in the story even when nothing bombastic is happening, and that is a great achievement, something that really sets this sequel apart.

But Francis is not alone on making this movie special. His young and talented cast, lead by the always amazing Jennifer Lawrence, is ferocious and eager to invest in their characters, making you an ally (or an enemy) while watching everything unfold. Lawrence shows us again why she was the perfect choice to play the now iconic Katniss Everdeen: she makes you root for this young, brave lady every single minute of the struggle; with her sad, hopeless stare that pierces your soul to her ability to convey admirable strength when everything seems to be out of reach are phenomenal and she deserves the praise she gets.

The rest of the cast is uniformly good, but I have to highlight Jena Malone, who plays the explosive Johanna: her presence makes the screen on fire whenever she's in, mixing the perfect amount of attitude and humor. A particular scene involving an elevator and a fancy dress is at the same time hilarious and shocking, just like her character. Donald Sutherland also shines as the menacing president Snow, in a restrained performance that doesn't need too many words spoken to make you think twice on how dangerous he is.

The set pieces are also vastly improved upon: bigger, more ambitious and work perfectly in sync with the action to make for some really unforgettable moments. The arena looks beautiful and foreboding, hiding it's dangers behind the shining green water. So does the bizarre Capitol and the Districts, full of sadness and fear, two dichotomies in every aspect.

But what I really liked about the movie was that they didn't shy away from the political aspects from the novel and conveyed the despair and oppression imposed by the Capitol over the rest of Panem. It makes you think that all of this is happening around the world, in one way or another, maybe masquerade, but it is. It's sad that many teenagers are only in this ride for the hot action and beautiful people (some screaming girls in the movie theater I went only confirm this. They were not the majority, it was packed and most people were also extremely annoyed by it too - every time Finnick appeared it was a screaming hell). It has so much more to offer.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire not only improves vastly upon it's predecessor: it's a great cinematic experience by itself, touching on important topics about the modern day society without losing it's thrilling core. It's not perfect, but what it does right it goes right into the bullseye. Don't let the hype or the teen fury on this fool you: it is entertainment at it's best.
A Great Archetype of The Hollywood Business
After a massive let down from watching the first movie, I was surprisingly curious enough to wonder where the story would go in the second. My main issue in the first film was a lack of a compelling and believable story, but I walked in the theater to see this one anyway, hoping the film makers sought redemption for what was so abysmal. It didn't surprise me much however to find that story was once again dry, rigid, and crusted over with garbage, just like a dog turd on a summer sidewalk.

The story continues directly from the events following the victory of Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark in the hunger games. President Snow crafts the two characters towards into public figures, forcing them to positively represent the government to gain more popularity for the hunger games. The movie actually starts out quite promising as we see a great deal of tension growing between the districts and the state. We see the very beginning of martial law come into effect, rebels planning to coalesce, and fear permeating through the characters. It looks very good, until Hollywood decides drop by the scriptwriters' office with another visit. This movie's only purpose is to give you hope of something good and then crush by sending you back to the train wreck of a film we experienced in the first movie. By this point, if you haven't done so already, get ready to kick back and watch the nonsensical onslaught continue. That's right, you're in for another hunger game!

About less than halfway into the movie, the viewer is virtually left watching the first movie all over again. The director should have saved time filming and simply cut and paste the first movie in at this point. While the characters are busy killing each other for the second time, it is hard not to hope that we will get some more information about what is happening on the home front. What is the government doing? How are the districts reacting? How are the families of the main characters in district 12? Rather than our questions getting answered, all we get are some more scenes of Katniss and her bow, Peeta falling in love with her for the second time, and poorly developed characters (who we are supposed to feel sorry for) die. Also, similarly to the first movie, we see more attempts of intimidation among the players, chances to win sponsorships, lots of prep talk before the big fight, and a shot of all of the contestants broadcasted in their kooky outfits before they get shipped off to the slaughter house.

There are a few things I should probably mention before some fans of the movie do. Not that it matters, but the hunger game in this movie is slightly different from that of the first. In response to the uproars in the districts, the government expresses their displeasure by sending previous victors from each district back into the hunger games. This really makes no difference for the viewer, since we see over 20 new bloodthirsty contestants besides Katniss and Peeta anyway. A few other trivial differences include the new arena the game takes place in. This time, the characters start the fight in the water rather than on land. Also, the whole arena is apparently bigger (even though it just looks like another forest), and there are environmental hazards that occur on an hourly schedule. It really doesn't matter, and it is painful to think that the filmmakers think they can win their audience over with such a frivolous change. In my opinion, the only thing that this franchise really has that wins its popularity is their main cast, Jennifer Lawrence. But that doesn't fix the story. The essence of the film is still fundamentally flawed. It is no different than trying to treat the scent of a puddle of diarrhea with fabreeze air freshener!

At one point in the movie, Katniss and her friends contrive a plot to eliminate the remaining contestants. Out of nowhere, in the middle of the plan's execution, she somehow figures out how to escape the arena, and the entire infrastructure collapses. Suddenly Katniss is rescued by a ship, as if the whole plan to escape was coordinated from the beginning, and she requests to return to her home. She and the audience learn that district 12 has been destroyed. The movie ends. A long silence follows until the credits roll along with an animation of the mocking jay pin. Not only is this one of the most abrupt and unsatisfying endings to a film in the history of films, but the director adds insult to injury as he essentially tells us, "Too bad, you missed out on all of the important stuff that happened in the real world, and instead, you got to watch the first movie over again!" Not only do we get a repeat of what already happened, but we are left in complete darkness and miss out of every single detail that could have potentially progressed the storyline. The movie could have literally been cut in half if the whole hunger game was removed, and we still would have gotten the same amount of essence from the story.

This movie is a prime example of how Hollywood takes something with a lot of potential and strips it of all nutrients until it becomes as bare as a pile of elephant dung. The film is nothing more than a monotonous moneymaking expedient that deserves to be flushed down the toilet! The only reason why I regard it slightly higher than the first is for the first few scenes of the movie that actually grabbed my attention. In retrospect, that momentary grasp of interest wasn't worth the other two hours of an appalling scam.
Hunger Games - The Remake!
Catching Fire is basically a remake of the first movie, which doesn't offer even one single new idea, just the easiest excuse to send the winning couple back to the games and repeat everything that happened in the first movie.

At 2.5 hours (including 11 min of end credits!!!), the movie is way too long and pointless. Half the movie is wasted on boring "background story", which adds nothing to the plot and serves as a mean to present the movie as something more than it is - people trying to kill each other. The second half is better, but again - offers nothing new.

Good production design, good CGI.

4.5/10 Skip the first half of the movie, then put your brains in neutral

Wait, they split the third movie into two movies, making the trilogy into a quadrilogy? My god, they are just as shameless as they are geniuses!!!
Better then the first one!
"The Hunger Games: Catching Fire", is a more then solid sequel to 2012's "The Hunger Games". "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" 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. The Quarter Quell for the seventy fifth games are that the tributes will be reaped from the existing victors. Katniss must make choices that will put herself and her family in danger of being killed. She and her fellow tribute Peeta must train once again for another games, but this time they must make allies as everyone who they are fighting against know one another, Katniss and Peeta are the outsiders. The Directing in this film is very well done and very smooth. "Francis Lawrence" boosted the game from the previous film in the franchise, which was directed by "Gary Ross". The difference between the two directors is that "Francis Lawrence" is a visionary which clearly stands out in the film. "Jennifer Lawrence" once again did a fantastic job as Katniss Everdeen but unfortunately "Josh Hutcherson" didn't quiet reach the heights of the last film as Peeta Mellark and its hard to say but "Josh Hutcherson" kind of sucks in this film. "Sam Claflin" did a fantastic job playing Finnick Odair as well as "Jena Malon" Playing another secondary character Johanna Mason. Although "Jena Malons" Johanna Mason was easily a scene stealer. Which bring me to the characters, the secondary characters in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" are sensational and they have some enormous character development throughout the movie, as well as Katniss and Peeta. The Cinematography in this film couldn't get better, which is another improvement over the first movie as there is no shaky cam. "James Newton Howards" composition of the Score was amazing with the standouts being, "The Tour", "A Quarter Quell", "Lets Start" and "Arena Crumbles." There are 29 songs in the score. Lastly The Special Effects in this film are very good in some parts but noticeable in other parts. Overall "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" improved enormously over its predecessor with better acting by "Jennifer Lawrence", smooth directing by "Francis Lawrence", great characters and good special effects. I give 2013's "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" a 10/10.
Difficult as it May Seem...Worse than the First
It Really is Hard to Imagine Anyone but an Eight Year Old Girl (apologies to eight year old Girls) Deriving much Entertainment from this Movie, or the Franchise. It is so Dumbed Down, Illiterate, and Dull that it Never Creates any Sparks, let alone Catches Fire.

From the Story that is All Surface about Totalitarianism and Fascism, to the Shallowness of the Whole and God-Awful Gaudy Costuming to the One-Dimensional Characters, Anyone Seeking Anything of Substance Here, will Discover Nothing, Except in the Most Superficial Display.

The Repression and Starvation are Shown as Dirty Faces and Tattered Clothes with the Downtrodden Insights Reduced to Staring Sunken Faces. Nothing is Ever Contemplated or Explored. This Thing is so Excruciatingly Shallow and Lightweight it can't even Manage to Sink from its own Excesses.

The Final Bit, the Actual Games, are so Recycled and Unimaginative as to Boggle the Bean. The Grand Finale has Blood Rain, Diseased Fog, a Spinning Clock, and for the Big Bang...Baboons.

This is what Passes as Epic Entertainment and Large Scale, Teen Friendly, Rah-Rah these Days. Wispy, Unengaging, Bland, and Embarrassing this is one of those Blockbusters that in Ten Years will hardly get more than a Casual Glance and that Only to See what all the Fuss was about. Good Question.
