Consider my mind...not blown...Demolished... (by barendbkj)
The entire year I've been waiting for this moment when The Hunger Games: Catching Fire would come out and I would go and see it. I had so many expectations going into the theater; was it going to be better than the first? Did they put everything that was in the book in the movie? Is it going to be worth it? Well I am pleased to say that the answer to all these questions are yes. This movie is by far one of the best franchise movies to date...Go suck it Twilight. Hunger Games Rule!! The acting was amazing, Jennifer Lawrence...I am in love, I don't know where she came from but she's <more>
from out of this world. They could not have casted a better Katniss, this girl it on fire! Josh Hutcherson might have grown up a bit and his portrayal of Peeta Mellark was outstanding. The rest was awesome, the victory tour, the parties, the tributes parade, the tributes, the arena, the obstacles in the arena, the CGI was memorable, and the emotion that these actors brought to the set was unforgettable.It's way better than the first one. And I'm so glad they did this one justice. I wish I could give this movie a fifteen out of ten, because it's just fantastic.If the second one was this good...then I cannot wait for Mockingjay Part 1 and Part 2. It's gonna be epic...
Hunger games a wonderful masterpiece (by zakmovie)
A beautiful adaptation, this second is more entertaining than the first because he's just a miracle i can say, to see how the picture is and also the acting of Jennifer Lawrence and all the cast, this must be a very very good add to cinema's masterpieces, because harry potter is good but this saga hunger games is a masterpiece because they are some scenes that are incredible, i was enjoyed seen this movie, and i think the difference is that the director is different and this what makes the movie more good than the first, not simply good but wonderful and amazing. And to see it in <more>
premiere is the best thing never happened in my life, you live with the movie like if he was not just 3D but 4d , enough emotions and sensibility, i think that you need to watch it because if you don't you missed an important part of your life, go to see it in cinemas. They found in this second installment in full " tour winners ," a propaganda operation designed to calm the agitated crowd , and when the two young men lend grudgingly . Angered by the seditious character of Katniss , the president of Panem Donald Sutherland decides to eliminate the 75 games will be played by former winners . Katniss and Peeta then return to the arena , while the revolt brewing in the downtrodden districts.This protest ground , a prelude to the revolt described in the third installment of the series, released in theaters in two parts in 2014 and 2015, has helped to improve the political message of the trilogy. "I think the important message for the younger generation is to tell them how they are essential to define the society of the future ," said Jennifer Lawrence Friday , during the presentation of the film to the press in Beverly Hills.Nina Jacobson , producer of the trilogy, "The heart of these films , it is the point of view of Katniss and as long as we remain firmly attached to it , it remains consistent ." A character that Jennifer Lawrence , one of the most sought actresses in Hollywood , " will be honored in being associated for the rest of his days," she said. " This is a good role model for girls . It is strong , it's a fighter , she is not afraid to stand up for what is right ," said she summary in London. This should be the biggest movie of the year because i don't think that another movie will be amazing like it was, a 3D very stunning and a storyline well, its a dream come true seeing this movie about this game this dangerous game between young girls and boys, like a new world like something that can happen in the real world. Why users do some reviews talking about the storyline with spoilers ?
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire it's a sequel better than the first in every aspect: ACTING: 10/10 Jennifer Lawrence was amazing, she passed the tension and drama lived for Katniss after the Hunger Games, and now is a traumatized character.Josh Hutcherson was pretty good too, and had more time to be developed as Peeta, turning the character more profound, with his "disappointments in love".Another positive point is the supporting cast, Liam Hemsworth proves that he is not just a pretty face surprising as Gale and Donald Sutherland was amazing like ever.And Jena Malone takes the <more>
camera on she as Johanna Mason, she's f*cking amazing.VISUAL: 9/10 The Hunger Games: Catching Fire had $140 million, while the first had the half of this, so everything is better now, not just CGI, but all the rest, scenarios, setting, garment, this movie is visually amazing.WRITING: 10/10 The plot is incredible, one of better adaptations ever, everything that's important in the book is in the movie, and what is taken off help the movie to be better.Even better than a faithful script is the fact that did an faithful atmosphere, the political climate and the criticism for society what made the book amazing what miss in first movie was amazing in that movie.MUSIC: 7/10 The soundtrack was good, but nothing memorable, but work well in the movie.VERIDICT: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is incredibly faithful to the book and that excels in all aspects of its predecessor, giving a vote of confidence for director Francis Lawrence who should get the last two movies in the series too.In addition to opening the eyes of the public for the political and intelligent content from the book written by Collins, showing that Hunger Games deserves more thought that "who gets Katniss?"
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 <more>
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.
Jennifer Lawrence caught fire a few years ago, and her acting only gets hotter. (by face-819-933726)
Surprised me this movie did. I had been hearing all this negative stuff about this just being the same movie as the last one, and it is really anything but. This movie really steps things up. The first movie felt fake, and very much like a unreal world that was just too oppressed. Well this one does exactly the same thing, but goes deeper, and does the things that were missing in the last movie. Sure you have most of the same characters, and most of them say lines that are pretty dead on with the first movie, but it is the first movie that makes this one so good. No matter how bad the first <more>
one was, and at times it was horrible, the actions of Katniss were all that mattered, and the only good part of the first film. This film grabs you in the heart because Jennifer Lawrence is so good at bringing Katmiss to us, and as always, acting the heck out of the room. You can not help but feel her pain at the losses she feels from the last battle, and her strong love for both men. I could not imagine this movie working with any lesser actress playing this roll. So yes I Enjoyed this one, and would recommend it to all, or any. There is a lot of violence, and some stuff that young kids will get really freaked out at, but beyond that this can be an anyone film in my book.
We are now at the post Twilight/Harry Potter era, and The Hunger Games movies are the only young adult novel adaptations that have the same scale of fame of the two former series. And you know that the YA genre has become even worse nowadays; just pick up a random book, mix them with familiar elements that would please teenager hormones, and good to go. But Catching Fire is obviously different, and these are the reasons why it's much superior compared to those horrible drecks: it has strong ambition, it digs deeper within its themes, and simply tells a story. Thus it finally gets it right <more>
by deliberately showed all the interesting parts of the source material.Everyone will most likely come for the action and the romance, but unlike the last film, this one has a wiser focus: sociopolitical satires. It explores how tyrannical the Capitol government is, and how the media amazingly helps covering their corruption. The context alone is of course immediately compelling, it makes a stirring conviction why they really need to go for a revolution. While it centers Katniss who has issues of her own, her compassion towards her family, friends, and the people of Panem has always felt genuine. Those kinds of emotions work remarkably than the love triangle she's stuck into.The film once again benefits having Jennifer Lawrence in the lead. She's just incredibly engaging, that you would definitely root for all throughout. The rest of the cast remains as compelling as they were, same goes to the new ones somewhat. Francis Lawrence now handles the series. The camera may be less shaky, but there's always a sense of art in his direction, especially at the midst of silence. The pacing is effortlessly outstanding, which decently balances the drama and the thrills. The games has become a lot electrifying, it is more practical and have greater effect of danger than just characters trying to kill each other. It's a creative turn that goes full momentous until the end. The production and the effects are solid enough to make the exteriors of their world look intriguing.The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has a smarter vision and finally hits the right note. The first movie was entertaining, but it hardly bothers showing the actual point of these stories other than enjoying how the games were played. This sequel filled the blanks around the setting thus tells a far more interesting story. And it sure feels like an utter miracle for an awful year for YA films, then again a great young adult book adaptations have always been rare. Overall, it's easily the best one this year, and that is all what you need to know for a while since it's kind of hard talking about it without giving much away. I can't say it's flawless, but it is generally engrossing.
Visually Stunning. Beautifully Tragic. A Masterpiece. A book fan review (by lbrosprod)
I first want to say that if you are a fan of the books, you will NOT be disappointed. Compared to the first movie adaption, this one soars, leaving the other movie to die out in the hot desert sun.I had re-read the book a day before I saw it and so I could see what the critical changes were. I would know every fine detail they let out. I first have to let you know that every book-to-movie adaption can't have 100% of the book in their. Plus, the new director, Francis Lawrence, had to clean up the mistakes the first director left out. Another thing, all the very important and even some <more>
parts you might think Hollywood would oversee is stitched together.This has to be the BEST book-to-movie adaption I have ever seen. The visuals, for one, is spectacular. $140 million budget was not wasted, that's for sure! The director packed every little intricate piece possible to make it THE BEST experience us fans could have.The acting was phenomenal. Katniss is a lot more lively now, because Jennifer Lawrence finally understood her character. The whole cast, including Sam and Josh, were amazing. Even the actress who played Johanna Mason, was FUNNY!The music, however, copied the first, because I bought the first soundtrack, so I know every little musical detail. They must have used the same music and added a few more. That was sad. But, it did fit with the scene.The action and suspense will never leave you, as the ending is a cliff hanger, holding on for dear life! Hunger Games book fans: you won't be disappointed with the ending Without a shadow of a doubt, this movie, Catching Fire, really does catch fire and immerses the audience in the Hunger Games. I was truly speechless after the film because it was just so beautiful and satisfying. You don't want to miss the best film of the year, and possibly the highest grossing film of all time!!!
A Surprisingly Good Movie That Surpasses It's Predecessor In Every Way (by cadillac20)
I wouldn't exactly call myself a fan of the books, but I did enjoy Hunger Games, despite it's tweenie appeal. I'm a sucker for these kinds of things. Maybe it's the Battle Royale and Lord of the Flies fan in me. I did enjoy the first movie. It was a very well done adaptation. However, having read the entire trilogy, I feared that adapting the rest of the material would result in something similar to the books: terrible follow ups. As someone who takes the content of these books and the things that themes and stories they are trying to tell just a bit more seriously than the <more>
target age group might, I groaned and moaned throughout the novels, especially the last one. However, the film has done something I didn't think it could do: not suck.That's right, the movie does not suck. In fact, it's actually quite good. So good that it out does The Hunger Games in nearly every way, something that is quite the opposite of the novel. Where the original movie, while good, also came off feeling like it was feeding that tweenie audience it was aimed at, something about Catching Fire feels far more serious and far more mature. The film picks up right where we left off. Katniss and Peeta are on their victory tour, while the rest of the districts are showing signs of civil unrest due to Katniss defiance of The Capitol, that oppressive government regime that forces districts to send their children to die. To send a message to the districts that the capitol is still evil, they devise a new Hunger Games, this time forcing past victors back into the arena. Because what is a Hunger Games movie without the Hunger Games.The first film, at times, felt like it was doing too much to introduce us into this world. Everything felt like some kind of obvious plot detail. While I enjoyed the film, I often felt disconnected to it and the issues it tried to present. There was so much focus on details of the world and the games, that the presentation of the world seemed to take a back seat. Lawrence was the major saving grace, though even she wasn't perfect. All of this has changed. With the games essentially taking a secondary part in the film, there is a stronger emotional connection. It helps that all the actors involved are not only a bigger part of the film but seem to be more comfortable and are much more convincing in their roles. Where the characters of Effie and Haymitch and even Gale seemed purpose driven, with little more than a role to fill, here they feel more fleshed out. They have a greater impact and there is more of an emotional connection, from Haymitch's clear frustration between his contempt for the Capitol and his attempts to keep Katniss and Peeta alive, to Effie's attempt to keep everyone as a team and sure signs that she is struggling with the facts of Katniss and Peeta once again thrown into turmoil.The performances are the primary strength here. They do deliver on the emotion that is necessary to drive this story and don't feel like they are catering just to tweens, with the poorly written love triangle of the novel and the more trivial elements that are apart of the kind of writing that comes with novels aimed at tweens. Catching Fire feels like a serious movie with a serious story to tell. At it's heart is Jennifer Lawrence, who seems like a completely different person here. Since the original movie, as an actor, Lawrence has had several projects and has even won an Oscar. And so, it is no surprise that she feels like she is at an entirely different level. She seems more natural as Katniss and her acting is far more convincing. She comes off as someone who is not only conflicted, but scared. Even so, she remains strong and determined. Much like the first movie, as Katniss, she proves to be among the best of role models for young folk. But beyond the performances, everything just feels elevated. The story has a better focus on the growing revolution that is clearly starting. The themes are more apparent and focused on. Everything feels less obvious and more natural. Gone are introductions to this world and it's elements, replaced by a futuristic vision carried purely by it's story and characters. Even the games are better, with more exciting action, better effects, and better character interaction, helped by a cast of new characters as fellow tributes. I do seem to be gushing about the film, and it's not one I had expected to like nearly as much as I did, but I have to admit it: this was a very pleasant surprise. My fear now is that the next films won't live up to this sequel. But, I will give them more of the benefit of the doubt, considering how much this film blew me away as far as surpassing expectations. As I said in my review for the first film, fans will love this, and non-fans may also find themselves won over.
So, for a long time, I avoided The Hunger Games. I had seen and loved Battle Royale, and I felt like The Hunger Games would be a more PG version of that. But I decided to watch the first film, and I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed it. But this one is even better. I walked out of this film really pleased. It does have similarities to the first film, but I think this one does everything better. It has a lot of really interesting twist and turns to the story to keep me wanting to know what happens. The film ends in a way that really leaves you wanting to see the next film so you can find out <more>
how the rest of it plays out. I would say this film can appeal to both men and women, with it's mix of action, drama, and romance, and that works to it's advantage. If you enjoyed the first movie, you will love this one. This is how blockbuster movies should be made. Entertaining, but done in a way that feels like effort has been made.
