Catching Fire Movie Review

Are you joining the revolution? This movie review contains some spoilers so don't continue reading if you hate spoilers! "We have never seen anything like this, and we will never see anything like it again." as Caesar said. After the 74th Hunger Games, something changed. Hope began rising, Katniss Everdeen became a symbol of hope thus President Snow became anxious about it and wanted to kill Katniss. Another reason why Snow is immensely raged of Katniss is because he's not convinced with Katniss' love for Peeta even after the scripted proposal. Everything will be different because it's a quarter quell.

There were more sweet and funny scenes in Catching Fire compared to the first movie plus the fashion wardrobe is more fabulous and out of this world! President Snow and the new head game maker Plutarch Heavensbee have concluded to put existing victors to the 75th hunger games. Katniss is the only female victor of District 12 that's why she's surely going to fight in the game. Peeta volunteered himself to save Haymitch. Haymitch said there are no victors in the Hunger Games, just survivors and now their lives are in threat again. While on their way to the Capitol, Effie gave them a golden accessory each which will symbolize that they're a team. Last game was all about staying alive, this time it's all about knowing who your real enemies are. Tributes ensure their survival by having allies watch their back in the arena and Katniss chose Finnick and Meggy from District 4. There were some things in the game that have symbolism, you may think that it doesn't make sense but in the end you'll find out and realize it. The arena was designed like a clock and when the clock strikes at midnight, a lightning will surge in a huge tree which means a particular disaster will occur.

Favorite scene would have to be Peeta saying to Katniss that when he dies, it's okay because no one needs him and Katniss can't die because her family needs her then Katniss said she needs him and she kissed him. To make the story short, Katniss destroyed the invisible forcefield barrier with her arrow connected to the lightning tree with a wire. She was almost dead when recovered and when she woke up, she discovered Haymitch, Finnick and Plutarch talking about their plan. Plutarch the new head game maker revealed to be on the side of rebellion. Katniss raged and attacked Haymitch because Peeta was captured by the Capitol. The syringe that Katniss took as she woke up was used to her when she attacked Haymitch. As she awakens, Gale was beside her and she instantly asked about her mother and Prim. Gale said he got them out in time before the District 12 was firebombed out of existence. Jennifer Lawrence is undisputedly a great actress, the last seconds of the movie was just her face with bursting emotions! Many said the movie was cliff-hanging. what are your thoughts about it? Share it on the comment section! :D
