Saw the movie at a private screening on Wednesday and there's no doubt about you should go. The actions sequences are excellent and you are engrossed all the way through the movie. It is so good. Don't hesitate - GO !!!

Catching Fire

Faithful cinematically beautiful faithful rendition of book.. Superb Cast. Jennifer Connelly has put in another terrific performance. Through her you feel Katniss's pain. It is the supporting cast which plays off her sensitivity which makes this movie so powerful , especially Southerland-the Facist Presidejnt, Harrelson-Katniss's drunken derelict supporter, Hoffman-the diabolical Gamekeper, and Tucci as the always joyous Master of Ceremonys. Only Josh Hutcherson's wooden portrayal of Peeta left something to be desired. The first movie, didn't convey the horror and fear generated both by the shooting of the cannon announcing the death of each player, and the nightly ritual of showing all those who had been killed. This is rectified in "Catching Fire" The Introductionn of the contestants in the Capital is reminiscent of Hitlers rallies in Nurenburg and the enticing power and horror of dictatorships. Would recommend this movie to all but the very young.

Not nearly as good as the first one. Could have and should have been so much more. I was dismayed by the lack of character development. Consequently, there was no emotional buy-in as characters were killed off right and left. Not a terrible movie, but I was sorry I paid to see it in the theater.

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.
