Movie Reviews

  • there's never quite the sense of satisfaction that the first film provided. You can feel the franchise dynamic chugging beneath, with the result that Catching Fire is not quite a full course, more of an amuse bouche
    3 of 5 by Paul MacInnes [The Guardian ]
  • the book literally put onscreen, which will delight fans to no end
    by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter ]
  • it strays too often into unearned melodrama and by-numbers plotting, with even Lawrence struggling to sell some of Katniss's more abrupt emotional shifts
    3 of 5 by Emma Dibdin [Digital Spy ]
  • in director Francis Lawrence's steady hands (gone are the previous film's needlessly spastic camera moves), "Catching Fire" makes for rousing entertainment in its own right, leaving fans riled and ready to storm the castle
    by Peter Debruge [Variety ]
  • Catching Fire is so committed to carrying on the fine work started by its predecessor that the applause flows utterly naturally. Is it too soon to say I can't wait for the next one?
