Against all odds, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has won the annual Hunger Games with fellow district tribute Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) But it was a victory won by defiance of the Capital and their harsh rules. Katniss and Peeta should be happy. After all, they have won for themselves and their families a life of safety and plenty. But there are rumors of rebellion among the subjects, and Katniss and Peeta, to their horror, are the faces of that rebellion. The Capitol is angry. The Capitol wants revenge.
Book Jackets: Letting reviewers be lazy since the beginning of time. 😉
Speaking of the book, I’m a big fan of the ‘Hunger Games’ series. Looking back, I can see that the first film basically feels like someone’s interpretation of the book. This film, feels like it is the book’s imagery leaping off of the page. The screenplay is adapted wonderfully, the acting is great, including an especially surprising Elizabeth Banks, and the costume design is definitely Oscar worthy.
So.. you probably already know whether or not you want to see Catching FIre, so I’ve just wasted my time! NIce. Anyway, it will be very sad to see the Academy continue to ignore this franchise, so I really hope it gets some recognition in Costume Design, Makeup, or Visual Effects, because it would definitely earn it.
(P.S: My failed NaNoWriMo assignment is making it very difficult for me to come up with good writing. Sorry for the short review.)
