Amazing, one of the best book adaptations yet.
Epic movie cant wait for number 3 !!!
This movie was amazingly emotional. The cinematography was beautiful, J-Law delivered a stunning performance and Johanna Mason was incredibly kick-ass. It was heart-wrenching at times (I cried throughout) and the love triangle (which to be honest, is not really a triangle in my opinion) is done...

Truly steps it up from The Hunger Games. Riveting performance by an all-star cast, leaves you eagerly awaiting Mockingjay.

Awesome movie! Loved it from start to finish!
I am really pleased with how they are translating these great books to the big screen - they're doing a fine job of it. The word that kept occurring to me at various points in the movie was: "Epic!" Anyway, I can't wait to see the next one!

Loved this movie. It was awesome. Very true to the book. I think that once the franchise realised how well the first one did they were happy to spend up on this one. Also I think that the change of Director helped. No noticable shaky hand cam in this one - thank goodness. Thoroughly recommend.

This doesn't need a review. It was a classic before it opened.
Good movie. Think you need to have watched the first one to understand this one.

Very entertaining... hadn't even seen Hunger games 1
Great
Good action but the story line is quite predictable
Looking forward to the next 2 movies.
Really great - loved it as much as the first movie.
This is part 2 of the three part Hunger Games trilogy. I enjoyed the costumes but the story line was a bit flat. The movie kinda leaves you hanging.....it just ends abruptly.

Hunger Games: Catching Fire is better than the first. It's a faster pace and the storyline is getting more involved. The finish comes too fast. Leaves you hanging for more.

Better than the first one, Very Touching Movie
Awesome costumes
I enjoyed it, however my friend felt cheated that the main character was an expert archer who spent the whole movie being saved by others. I liked it anyway, it's pretty true to the book, with a great cast.

Although a weird concept, the second installment of the Hunger Games presents a credible and surprising story line with twists and turns to keep you hooked.

I love it! I watched it twice!
Great movie, even better than the first.
An excellent adaption that captures the spirit of the second in Suzanne Collin's trilogy. An intelligent script, delivered brilliantly by Jennifer Lawrence, finishes with the audience wanting more.
More Report
The second of a trilogy and usually the trickiest to film well but this one is excellent. The director has stayed as close to the novel as is possible. The acting is convincing and Donald Sutherland's performance is especially frightening as the totalitarian leader. Great viewing highly recommended.

Annoyed me, needs to be watched more then once! Number 1 is definitely better.

Great movie, coming from a big fan of the books.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is a big step up from the first one. The overall look and feel is darker and better and you feel that President Snow is truly a menacing villian almost like a Darth Vader to this Empire Strikes Back feeling movie for The Hunger Games World. The performances are...

fantastic movie... be warned though, it's a massive cliffhanger
brilliant, what issues where in the first film of the saga were addressed and bettered, Jen Lawrence was great, stand out were what few scenes Woody Haroldson were in, aswell as the scenes when Philip Seymour Hoffman was in, both underrated performances

I expected a lot more of the actual 'hunger games' itself, rather than an indepth story line. Overall, it was a good flick.

Whilst good is more of the same and since this is part 2 of 3 we know our beloved heroine is not going to be too troubled. Sadly it is merely a link from one where we first introduced to this wonderful story and to the third where I am certain it will go for broke. This at times was boring!!!!...

Not the best film of the year, but ultimately Catching Fire takes wondrous steps in disproving the stigma that just because something is popular with teenage girls, it must be terrible.

As befitting a blockbuster, it wet the appetite for the story to be continued. Favourite girlie bit was the dress (unsurprising) but the subterfuge of the games itself gave more depth to the film.

A good mix of humour and thrilling action make it watchable for 90% of the population. Add in dialogue and Easter Eggs & this becomes thoroughly enjoyable. if not for a slow patch near the beginning and an unnecessary man-bear, this would be a 5 star film.

Disjointed & hard to follow in places. Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss) & Josh Hutcherson (Peeta) give strong performances & are easy to watch, but the movie was a major let down & I doubt that I'll bother with any further installments in this series. And to cap it off, it's only half a story. ...

Somewhat different from the book for very obvious reasons, despite this, as a movie it has it all: love, action, a dash of comedy. It could have emphasised the main points of the book more, but as a movie it is excellent and has you on the edge of your seat. Jennifer's acting is superb.
