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 Peta. With both Katniss and Peeta declared the winners, it is fueling a possible uprising. 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. But unfortunately she fails to do that. 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. He decides to hold an edition of the Hunger Games wherein previous winners will compete again. Their mentor Haymitch thinks their best chance to survive is form an alliance with some of the others.

Katniss Everdeen: How rude of them.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - Simply Brilliant!
26 March 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I'd read all of The Hunger Games' books and was not displeased, so when I heard there was a second film, I was very excited but also worried as a lot of sequels can sometimes ruin the original title, and in this case - the entire saga.

Thankfully, the film was absolutely brilliant, they managed to fit the entire story line of the book into the film, which a lot of films these days struggle to do.

The effects that were used were absolutely ecstatic, they suited each, individual scene perfectly, without overdoing it to make it look like unrealistic.

Jennifer Lawrence plays Katniss so well, I honestly don't think you could find a better actress for the role, I'd probably have to say the same for Peeta, Effie, Haymitch and Caesar.

I hope you enjoyed my review for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire.

*RIP, Phillip Seymour Hoffman*
