Review: The Hunger Games – Catching Fire

TheHungerGamesCatchingFire1

Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark become targets of the Capitol after their victory in the 74th Hunger Games sparks a rebellion in the Districts of Panem.

TheHungerGamesCatchingFire2

Jumping right into the story it picks up right where it left off with Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark as champions and the districts building hope because of what they did at the end. There was so much to the story to tell, over 2 hours and 30 minutes with a lot of twists and turns that brings Katniss & Peeta back into the fight with other champions as their foes, but with more on the line then they even know. It was a slow development in the beginning but it was building up, the characters all back in play with a few new interesting fighters. The fight in the dome felt a bit accelerated this time around, the bad guys in the dome didn’t feel that bad and died too quickly. I wanted so much more from it but the cliffhanger at the end of the movie honestly left me unsatisfied, I know sometimes there are movies that need sequels but this one felt like it was missing a piece. I’m not going to ruin it for anyone but you have to satisfy the person watching the movie even if you have a cliffhanger at the end.

Review: The Hunger Games

Set in a future where the Capitol selects a boy and girl from the twelve districts to fight to the death on live television, Katniss Everdeen volunteers to take her younger sister’s place for the latest match.

So much hype went into this movie, I didn’t know what people were so crazy about this movie, for some reason it had the hype just like Harry Potter, and they have two more books so it seems that two more movies are coming along. I really liked the main actor, Katniss Everdeen, she has attitude and it looks like the story will be developing because she keeps changing the rules and the game. The story is interesting but the characters are even better, and the world its based on seems familiar so I can see how this will develop to another movie franchise but isn’t bigger then Harry Potter thats for sure.
