I enjoyed it tremendously even though all the good stuff it had, I'd already seen in the first one. Also it really struggles to say anything - really just echoing themes we saw in the first one - and misses the third act that would make it all meaningful. But... I still ate it all up! The sombre palette and quiet scenes build up dread - so that when we're finally inside the games it's remarkably tense. A compelling blend of sci-fi and survivalist horror that hasn't outstayed its welcome yet.

A genuinely exceptional mainstream blockbuster. Lawrence's performance is amazing (and considerably better than the one that got her an Oscar btw), but with Tucci, Banks & PSH also weighing in with great turns there is no shortage of class. I just found this to be a beautifully paced, meaningful, well written, exciting and fulfilling action drama. It's such a rare thing to have a movie of this kind; made to appeal to many, but of true distinction and quality. I thought it was great.

Catching Fire is bigger and better than it's predecessor in almost every sense. The content may no longer be fresh but this sequel ticks the boxes. Jennifer Lawrence is great once again and both the returning and new members of the supporting cast are strong. The actual games arena sequences are much more enjoyable and eventful. Visually this is dramatically superior and the themes, politics and world are explored and explained further; making this a much more rounded and informative experience.

Jennifer Lawrence remains a committed Katniss. The movie around her, however, is watchable but awkwardly constructed and unevenly paced, with a more heavy-handed approach to its dystopian themes and considerably less tension and atmosphere than its predecessor. Collins' world is just not vivid enough to stand on its own and it shows. The unconvincing love angle is also a particularly persistent weakness.

I can't speak to the degree in which the movie does or does not follow the books, having not read them. What I can speak to is the significant step forward in quality that "Catching Fire" takes over the first film. This flick is shot much more competently, acted superbly, and on a personal level, satisfies that grittiness and harshness that I saw the potential for in the first. It's more emotional, more dystopian, and just MORE. It leaves you on a solid cliffhanger and leaves you wanting more.

For a universe this rigid, and a story this clumsily handled, the question remains: Why so serious? Where's the satire, lads? But more importantly: For all of you that laughed at me before, this is yet another failed part of a franchise that features digital monkeys. I told you! The curse of the digital monkeys is true! Told you! When will you ever listen, eh?! I'm looking at you person who's face is blurry because I have yet again gotten myself drunk.

How many other action-movie heroes suffer from PTSD? Other than Tony Stark who only acquired it in his FOURTH go-round, u'd be hard pressed 2 find another. But it's no surprise that the disorder plagues several of the protagonists here since this franchise's most distinguishing feature (other than Lawrence's always-compelling performance) remains its relentlessly grave tone. There r no attempts to follow formula & lighten the mood with wisecracks & so the stakes never feel less than enormous.

As the story progresses it distances itself from the comparisons to Battle Royale, etc., and establishes a unique dystopian sci-fi universe. While not delving deeply into the ideologies and motivations of the waring parties (the government is basically just an evil entity), there is enough political intrigue to fascinate mainstream audiences. The action is crisp, the camera work is less distracting than the first film, & the performances are stellar. A terrificly exciting blockbuster sequel.

Not entirely bad - and definitely better than the first one - but not particularly good either. There's just something with this universe that bothers me. It seems fake, bland, and without any substance, though it tries really hard convincing you otherwise.

Not since Stephenie Meyer caused a worldwide frenzy among angsty teens and pre-menopausal women has a franchise been so unworthy of our consideration. Completely redundant when you think about it, and the games, in which squirrel face and pocket-bread don't fight other contestants as much as recover from the lethal attacks that take place in the arena, are once again geared towards a teen-friendly audience. What a load of bull'.

Like Empire Strikes Back or The Dark Knight this should be included in the nerd canon of sequels that build on the previous picture. The worldbuilding is expanded to show how all parts of the country (and by extension the audience) would be impacted by these games. And it rewards audiences with so many conversations that could be extended over a cup of coffee after watching the picture. The montages are great, the Coldplay song trippy and Jena Malone is a fantastic addition to the cast.

Completely baffled by the amount of positive reviews. This is not good, anywhere. The premise is still as completely ridiculous and idiotic as it was in the first one, plus it's bland, boring, uninteresting and dumb. And the fact that almost everything that happened in this movie was just a scheme to be explained in the end. I mean come on! Really?

I mean, it's better than the first, but that's not saying too much. Still, if nothing else, a slightly unhinged, super-violent, blood-soaked Jena Malone is frankly way too sexy for me to hate this. I hope that lame wuss Peeta dies and we get more of her in the third (and fourth lol Hollywood) installment.

I'll actually agree with anyone who says it's better than the first. The Hunger Games: Catching Fire may seem a little underdeveloped alike the first, but it's visually entertaining and well acted. Lawrence is one of the best young actresses out there working today. She pulled off the role pretty well. It's totally worth watching if you've seen the first movie and/or read the books.

Jennifer is fantastic and committed as always, and I feel as though this film wouldn't have moved along as well if we weren't rooted in her strong performance the entire time. Otherwise, I was really underwhelmed by the entire experience this film provided for me. The script felt stale, the character interactions had little intensity, and I am super done with the love triangle (it lacks any remote bit of chemistry). Frankly, I'm pretty over this snooze-fest homage to the superior Battle Royale.

The second Hunger Games film is an improvement on the first one thanks to higher stakes, a better sense of emotional impact on characters and a wider view of the dystopian world. At the same time it feels a little like a retread as the plot structure is largely the same: put Katniss in a new predicament, introduce players for her to face in an arena and force them to fight to the death.

In a shocking turn, the franchise started to focus on the characters that are in the movie by holding the camera steady. Just by holding the camera steady. Gary Ross would be taking his coffin on a tilt-a-whirl if his career were still alive.

The beginning of this movie is a marked improvement over the first, with more compelling drama and more talent behind the camera (which thankfully is not shaking all over the place). Unfortunately, the arena fight is less suspenseful with half the people on the same side, and the movie suffers from having to set up for the finale (a common issue with the second part of trilogies). Hopefully they maintain the higher quality into the conclusion.

I'm not sold on this franchise yet. I don't know what it is, but I just don't "buy it" enough to find myself fully immersed in the universe on display. It's better than the first in some areas, but worse in others; Catching Fire suffers in particular from Middle Child Syndrome, serving seemingly just as a transition between films 1 and 3. To me, it doesn't stand alone as a meaningful film, and while it's part of a larger story it has no story of its own.

Wow, this is tough to review. On one hand the movie didn't have much of a story to tell (it's pretty much The Two Towers of this franchise) and ends just as the things get really interesting. On the other hand, it transformed me into a 16-year old girl for 2.5 hours rooting childishly for the love triangle to work, and share all the pain with the heroine Katniss - all result of simply amazing performance by Jennifer Lawrence. Nr. 1 of the young Hollywood actors for sure...

A huge improvement over the first one. This movie is darker, more suspenseful, more emotional, and better shot than the first (no shaky cam, yay!). I did have two problems with this movie though: one of them is the completely unnecessary love triangle, although it's less prominent than in the first movie. The second one, without spoiling anything, is the ending. A tip for the director: don't forget the third act next time. Props for making a 2.5 hour movie feel too short though.

The first act is superb as rebellion brews and Katniss and Peeta deal with the complex aftermath to the previous Games. I wish it lingered here longer instead of rushing to the next Games though; the plan to taint Katniss' image was dropped rather quickly, for example. Still, emotional scenes abound in the familiar plot structure of the next two acts (see Katniss and Peta's powerful presentations to the sponsors; Katniss' dress reveal), and the bounty of new supporting characters are memorable.

It's been awhile since I've had a hollywood blockbuster lay it on me all thick and syrupy like this. Sexy. I almost forgot what I was missing. There's a darker tone to the second installment but it doesn't make it better, it just makes it harder to take seriously. The battle-arena, which was designed as a clock separated into different sections of 1) killer monkeys, 2) raining blood, 3) birds that say scary things, 4) poison fog, was hilarious, and the twist could be seen a mile away. Dumb.

A vast improvement on the first, and about as subversive as a PG13 blockbuster could possibly be. It has a few weak moments (baboon fight!) but overall it just worked for me, helped by Lawrence proving again why she's one of the best new actors around. It might not have much new to say about the nature of totalitarianism and media compliance in keeping the masses down, but for a kids' film to deliver those ideas at all is impressive.

It was the same plot as the first one, no new real conflicts and the secondary characters where very undeveloped. Also this movie requires you to watch the first one and it doesn't really end, just leaves you hanging for the sequel. I really hate when movies do that, it's not a series' episode: it should end. Of course you can leave some open ending, but not leave everything open.

This is a huge step-up from the earlier installment. They changed the director and screenwriters (with no author's credits this time) so maybe it was to be expected. But still I was very impressed. The new cast fits the bill and the old one is much better handled. The pace and the flow are spot-on. The rest is a very good story, so no surprises, really.

Dull and lumbering sequel is a film of two equally dispiriting halves - the first half a mopey, TWILIGHT-inspired love triangle, with Lawrence, Hemsworth and Hutcherson failing to elicit even minor sparks together, followed by a second half which broadly remakes the guts of the first film, in a more solemn and minor key. Needlessly padded to 2 1/2 hours, this becomes a stultifying struggle in its later stages, with its fine cast unable to bring any life or energy to the self-serious screenplay.

Awful. The story/world is so ridiculously bad and nonsensical and the characters are so one-dimensional. This was a problem in the first film as well and is likely due to the source material. As a film this isn't much better, with meaningless events and scenes, bad acting from pretty much everyone (lots of bad overacting from J. Lawrence in particular), a forgettable soundtrack and no emotional impact. Terrible open ending. Painful to see something this trite and shallow getting so much praise.

It's great to see a promising first-in-a-series movie like the first Hunger Games have a sequel that advances the storyline, deepens the themes, and is actually more entertaining. I'd say it's pretty much an improvement in every way from the original, including the way the politics are coming more to the forefront. I'm looking forward to the next installment.

More political mumbo jumbo that makes no sense, an entire society that makes no sense, and some random poor girl who apparently is going to save the world because she got famous as a serial killer. Yeah, that makes sense. it appalls me that in the course of five movies, this sci-fi world didn't bother to try to give us more than a sixty second clip of explanation on exactly why this society is the way it is, and at that it's still retarded.

Hungry for more Hunger Games? Because the table is set and...uh...the food is...ready to...uh...consume! Alright, so I have no more happy meal analogies. They've probably been done already. In Hunger Games 2, the Hungerer, Katniss rides a train, shoots some arrows, and wears that fiery dress that has fire on it. And when she's not competing to be the United States of Dystopia's next Top Model, she's inspiring poor people to learn how to whistle. Then die. I wonder what Episode 3 will bring!

Like the first movie all over again (which I liked!), the film strains to turn this into a trilogy, new ideas be damned. How about our two main characters talk about their favorite colors?

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is a refined version of its predecessor. It's slightly stronger dramatically, touches slightly heavier on its main themes, has a bit better action, is far better shot, and is as wonderfully acted as ever. It's a step up and a better movie, even though it can't overcome the inherent problem of being the "middle film" -- a time-killer.

In a lot of ways, it's better than the first one. The development they give to the world was much appreciated by me. The games, however, were underwhelming. I really didn't like how they had most of the threat to the characters in the form of the environment, rather than the other people. Humans are a much more interesting & dangerous threat & despite building a few of them up as tough adversaries, they were hardly used. Lawrence is great & so are Tucci, Malone & the rest of the cast.

A particularly irritating wish-fulfillment soap-opera for tweens. None of the characters or plot elements are convincing.

Thankfully this veers away from the "twilight" like teen movie formula that the first one was headed in and feels like a darker and more substantive film. The presence of Hoffman elevates it somewhat as well. Some of the political intrigue and romance is downright silly though. This entire franchise is like a conceptually weaker rehash of the "running man." It tends to get weighed down by its own emotional earnestness. This was also surprisingly light on any good action and dragged at times.

I've never read the books, but god damn I love these movies. Since the series is "young adult," it's obviously not going to be as gritty as perhaps it could be, but I don't even care about that. What matters is that while the dystopia isn't the best ever, it is still good and interesting. But it's the characters and relationships that put it up to a 90. The actual games are still interesting, it has a great cliffhanger, Lawrence (and everyone) was great. This is YA done right.

Lawrence -- the Francis one -- is just the right man to operate a big budget, highly expected and extensively marketed product in the tight, silly and incomprehensive limits of the PG-13 rating, in which slaughter -- and not sparks of sexuality and passion -- is allowed. Catching Fire works where the previous one failed -- violence is more explicit, as the plot benefits from going pro, now that victors have been selected for a much more dangerous version of the games. Now that's an angry film.

Directed with a bit more polish, but a little too long and a little too familiar, seeming too much like merely a bridge to bigger things in the next instalments. Not sure the plot made any sense.

In many ways, "Catching Fire" is pretty much a retread of the initial movie but it also does each beat way more competently. I feel the stakes seem lesser as Katniss now goes into the game with an alliance. I loved the reveal of who was in the resistance at the very end even though it takes an anticlimactic game ending to do so. Better acting, tighter script, way better production than the original.

Feels like its repeating everything from the first one but enjoyable none the less.

Easily the best of the series, though that's not saying much.

Maybe I'm just getting sick of sequels. I really enjoyed the first hunger games. This one was also very good, but it really feels like a middle chapter. I am getting really sick of movies dropping off the ending because they know that people will be back for the next installment. I thought Philip Seymore Hoffman was a great addition to the amazing cast. I thought that the story was rote. Without any knowledge of the books or information about this movie I sussed out the plot quickly.

As with the first "Hunger Games," this had a good cast, script, and pacing. It made me look forward to the next one.

"Catching Fire" seeks to explore the themes and implications of the "Hunger Games" series more than the first film, but it's ultimately in service to a severely anticlimactic bout in the arena and "resolution".

Was The Hunger Games so verlockend macht, ist die Tatsache, dass hier einige Zeitphänomene geschickt verbandelt werden: Politikverdrossenheit, Starkult und nicht zuletzt die unsäglichen Reality Shows. Klar, die einzig wwirklich neue Erfindung ist Katniss selbst.... (dazu gibts eine Film List mit den besten Medien Satiren auf der Empfehlungsseite unserer Videothek cinegeek.de

The book is the best of the three; the movie stays right up there with the high bar the first movie set. The addition of Philip Seymour Hoffman (RIP) lends some legitimacy, but I think Tucci and Banks are still my favorite parts of the series.

This is growing in me beyond what I could ever foresee.
