Review & Comments
Leave your thoughts about The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.
Hitfix - 10/10 by Drew McWeenyThe Hunger Games: Catching Fire more than makes the case for this as a franchise that's going to get better as it goes, and I am genuinely excited to see how they wrap it up.
Windy City Times - 9/10 by Richard KnightLawrence is the rare female action-movie lead who carries on the fierce tradition of Sigourney Weaver in the Alien franchise -- easily the best and most enduring "special effect" this movie juggernaut has to offer eager audiences.
The Playlist - 9/10 by Todd GilchristCatching Fire is a monumental achievement, a massively entertaining crowd-pleaser that is thought-provoking and personally inspiring in all of the ways that it aspires to be.
Fort Worth Weekly - 9/10 by Kristian M. LinI'd love to report that this adds up to a great movie. It doesn't, but it does add up to a sequel that's a good deal more satisfying than its predecessor.
Chicago Sun-Times - 9/10 by Richard RoeperCatching Fire makes only the occasional misstep.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - 9/10 by Geoff PevereThe result is not only a dramatic improvement over what was already an unusually smart and satisfying pop-cultural parable of insurgent 99-per-cent rebellion, but a very likely candidate for the all-time-great-sequel sweepstakes.
Wall Street Journal - 9/10 by Joe MorgensternCatching Fire is exceptional entertainment, a spectacle with a good mind and a pounding heart.
Rolling Stone - 9/10 by Peter TraversPop-culture escapism can be thrilling when dished out by experts. Katniss is a character worth a handful of sequels. And Lawrence lights up the screen. You'll follow her anywhere.
Variety - 9/10 by Peter Debruge[Francis] Lawrence and his team have calibrated the entire experience for maximum engagement. And while its pleasures can’t touch the thrill of seeing the Death Star destroyed — not yet, at least — the film runs circles around George Lucas’ ability to weave complex political ideas into the very fabric of B-movie excitement.
Boston Globe - 9/10 by Ty BurrVery few people will take in this spectacle of a society amusing itself to death, of “reality games” and the vapid media hysteria that surrounds them, and not draw a parallel to our own televised bread and circuses. At its best, “Catching Fire” is a blockbuster that bites the culture that made it.
Tampa Bay Times - 9/10 by Steve PersallThe Hunger Games: Catching Fire is movie escapism made with intelligence, and that doesn't come around often enough. As I sensed this movie ending I wished it wouldn't, and when it did I wanted the next one now. Take that, Bilbo.
ReelViews - 9/10 by James BerardinelliThe screen translation of Catching Fire, the second volume of the series, offers its audience many of the elements that made The Hunger Games compelling, but adds to that by deepening the themes and emotional currents and traveling to darker destinations.
