The Hunger Games – Catching Fire

After watching the first part of ‘The Hunger Games’ I was very curious about the second. When the cinema trailer appeared on TV I couldn’t even wait to see ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’. I especially expected a big scene of the games themselves.

Catching Fire is about the main characters Katniss and Peeta and their life after the 74th Hunger Games, which they have won and about the 75th Hunger Games, where they take part again. The film starts with a ‘winner tour’, just a few month after the 74th Hunger Games.

Katniss and Peeta are visiting each of the districts to talk to the people, who lost their supporter in the game. It takes up the first half of the film. After that the game starts finally. The game itself is very exciting and adorned with many special effects. One better than the other. The actors did a very good job and the story was amazing but I was a little bit disappointed that the game was so short, because it was the best of the whole film, and also that it ends in such an abrupt manner.

Nevertheless: If you like action films with a little love story it’s a “must watch”!
