I left the movie pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. I found myself somehow closer to the main characters and attached to some of the new additions as well. Katniss and Haymitch certainly dominate the screen, but you'll find yourself embracing Peetah, Gale, Prim and even Effie. I like sequels that do a good job of paying tribute to the fallen of the previous movie and Catching Fire does it's due dilligence of that in this movie. Kravitz is solid in his portrayal of Cinna, Kaniss' stylist...and the costumes are amazing! There is an undertone of sadness throughout the movie that interestingly enough, draws you in rather than pushes you away. Maybe because you feel close to the players involved and keep looking for a happy ending for them. Catching Fire is not terribly violent, so it's also okay for young teens. All in all, a very well done movie and certainly worth going to see in the theatre.

This is a must see film. The acting was really great, Jennifer L makes you feel as if this is all real, Super actress. I think its ok for kids, there are some scenes that a child might get scared, but nothing bad. The ending is amazing, I walked out crying.

Again, a true adaptation of the story--go, go go! It delves into life in Sector 12, and the relationship between Katniss, Gale and Petar. Thoroughly enjoyable!

Even if you haven't read the books, this is a great movie. Both my husband and I absolutely loved it. My husband was so mad about having to wait another year to get the next movie when we left, even though I told him this was not the end! Although it is long, it doesn't feel like it in the movie. Lead actress is just incredible. Great acting, great story, great effects. Go see this movie - in the theaters! You won't be disappointed.
