The sad irony of it all is that the crowds stuffing sold-out showings of Catching Fire strongly resemble the Capital citizens eagerly awaiting the latest Hunger Games battle. He tells Katniss that while on tour she better try to make sure that she puts out the flames or else everyone she cares about will be in danger. However, there are some good sides to this movie. I really liked the trilogy, and when I watched the first adaptation, I was disappointed with some aspects and routes they went with it. With both Katniss and Peeta declared the winners, it is fueling a possible uprising.
But instead of exploring these and other ideas in the film, the gamemakers - sorry, I mean filmmakers - just watered down the politics, and everything else that might have induced too much thinking, to appeal to the widest audience possible. In fact, in some parts her lead was the only reason to stay focused. The final is the worst part. Also, ending a movie with a cliffhanger like this is just frustrating and plain lazy. The first thing I do not really get is 8. Here and there there are some stronger scenes that save the movie from being a total bore, such as the fight against the baboons and Katniss and Peeta's first speech which was wonderfully acted.
All make up a good setting for a dystopian yet realistic sci-fi atmosphere. He gets cut , electrocuted , almost drowns , attacked by killer monkeys , gets kidnapped. 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. Don't let the hype or the teen fury on this fool you: it is entertainment at it's best. 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. So they manage to get past the fog and Peeta lives. Katniss and Peeta are both chosen, and so they are going into the Games a second time, in a new arena, with a murderous batch of past winners.
The Capital, suppressed and poor districts, growing feeling of injustice, police terror, authoritarian and corrupt government and dictator Snow. So I'll go right into the review and my opinions on the picture. Sorry sorry, I mean blockbusters. The Victory Tour is a disaster. But unfortunately she fails to do that.
These two things, detailed extensively in the novel, had barely any depth in the film. When they get back home, the violence and repression against the population only escalates. After winning the seventy-fourth Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark return home to District 12. With that in mind, I kept my excitement in close watch with Catching Fire and went expecting a good movie and nothing more. The arena looks beautiful and foreboding, hiding it's dangers behind the shining green water. It sounds a little bit like.
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. Synopsis Twelve months after winning the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen and her partner Peeta Mellark must go on what is known as the Victor's Tour, wherein they visit all the districts, but before leaving, Katniss is visited by President Snow who fears that Katniss defied him a year ago during the games when she chose to die with Peeta. President Snow can not escape from the fate of being a shallow character. Screen time is wasted and an hour and fifteen minutes into the movie, almost nothing happened and I started drifting away, something that has never happened in the first movie which I saw like three times. 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. I had been looking forward to the film for months, but I kept my expectations low. It's not perfect, but what it does right it goes right into the bullseye. What was the screenwriter or whoever writes that thing thinking? Everything that happens is so damn predictable and just uninteresting. Revealing the revolutionaries, explaining the whole grand plan behind the 75th hunger game are all squeezed into 2-3 sequences in the last 5 minutes. He tells Katniss that while on tour she better try to make sure that she puts out the flames or else everyone she cares about will be in danger.

The first 1:30 hours, ie complete duration of a regular feature film is definitely one of the most boring fist halves I have ever seen. He tells Katniss that while on tour she better try to make sure that she puts out the flames or else everyone she cares about will be in danger. Watch thousands of starring your favorite actors. I can go on and on about other things, such as the poor decision-making done by some of the characters The bare-chested tribute knifing down the genius' wife while exposing himself to Katniss shooting him in the chest or the stereotypical depiction of soldiers being sadistic, ruthless and unmerciful like robots instead of showing some small shred of humanity.
I was speaking with someone about the film after we saw it, and he put forth the idea that perhaps the thinning of the material was fiscally strategic. And considering this superficial character building for the lead role, I am not surprised none of the other characters had a chance to become real. I don't think I saw more than a cupful of blood, drawn by a weapon. After watching The Hunger Games Catching Fire Movie a few things come to mind : 1 Ahhhh Jennifer Lawrence still drooling from the first film 2 I see Woody Harrelson is still doing his best impersonation of Woody Harrelson 3 You see guys? Despite the quality of the cinematography even action scenes can not surround you enough. 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. Great acting and some strong scenes are burdened by poor dialogue and weak directing. So Snow decides to enact what is known as the Quarter Quell, the right to make a change to the Hunger Games, which he is allowed to do every 25 years.
