Of the entire series, Catching Fire is my favourite of the beloved Hunger Games trilogy. Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) have become targets of the Capital’s President Snow (Donald Sutherland) because of revolutions throughout the dystopian country. As a result, Snow creates the theme of the 75th Hunger Games to be an “all stars” game.
Everything that you have heard about this movie is true. It is one of the best movies of the year, and definitely broke the “sequel” curse. The plot line has complexity without being too overwhelming. This all star cast is so perfect, especially with the addition of Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin). Aside from being wildly attractive, Claflin is also a brilliant actor. This is definitely a movie that will have you at the edge of your seat with anticipation.
4 out of 5 stars
