The Hunger Games: Catching Fire - Katniss hugs her sister
If you’re at all interested in the movies, you’ll have heard all there is to know about the latest entry in the Hunger Games franchise. Unsurprisingly, Jennifer Lawrence stuns as Katniss once again, but rather surprisingly, director Francis Lawrence has managed to channel the considerable pressure that comes with a book-to-film project into something really quite good.
"After 2012's The Hunger Games caught us off-guard with its subtle themes, this sequel more than lives up to the hype, dramatically expanding the scale of the action while letting the actors deepen their characters. It's a full-on action epic that cleverly retains author Suzanne Collins' narrative trick of telling the story through a flawed perspective. And it provides the needed push to give the whole saga real momentum"
