Wow! I absolutely loved this movie! It was over 2 hrs long and felt way shorter... I did not want it to stop. This is a MUST SEE!!!!
The movie, once again, does justice to the books. Jennifer Lawrence continues to amaze me as to how perfect she is as Katniss.... this casting continues to be absolutely flawless! The casting for this movie is phenomenal with great chemistry.
All I can say is one of top 3 best movies of 2013, hands down!

I am almost 63 but because I like science fiction I am interested in this film and the concept. I have not read the books. This is my second in the series as I saw the first one and now part two. I want to say first off, don't go opening day unless you like tons of noise and crowds and young people getting up and running around in a movie. Also please people don't bring your children to movies. There were several selfish parents with small kids and there are some very very scary moments not to mention this is a movie about young people killing each other. (why isn't there some kind of rule to protect children from idiot adult parents?)
The characters are becoming more defined and the sets and costumes were really incredible. The acting was top notch and the directing also very good. I don't think even I could predict the end which made it even better. Jennifer Lawrence clearly steels the show and she has proven herself once again a woman who can play any role and do a great job at it.

Finished this movie about an hour ago and I still can't stop thinking about it! BEST movie I've seen all year. I was into this movie for every second of it. Only bad part was it had to end and now I have to wait 2-3 years to see the finale!!

Love the books and they have done a great job with Catching Fire. Although visually stunning, the real treat is Jennifer Laurence's portrayal of Katniss. A mufti-faceted performance ranging from raw emotion to necessary manipulation, you really fall for Katniss. Jennifer Lawrence is really becoming the powerhouse actress of her generation. I almost can't believe I wrote that but it is true! I think the odds will forever be in her favor!

This is the movie adaptation book fans have been waiting for! Katniss and Peeta's relationship is developed further into a real romance. The many side characters get their time in the film while not making the movie feel long. Minimal gripes with adaptation but most fans will not notice the issues.
