Movie Review: Catching Fire

By: Clare Cozza

I thoroughly enjoyed the new Hunger Games movie, Catching Fire. While most movies created from books don’t do them justice, this one really worked for me. This is due in part to the fantastic casting of characters- Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Woody Harrelson, and Elizabeth Banks, among others, once again succeeded in living up to Hunger Games fans’ expectations. After waiting in line for the midnight premiere, my friends and I were not disappointed. Both the emotional touring Panem scenes and the action-packed arena scenes kept us on the edge of our seats. Although it is inevitable that not all the details from the book could be played out in the movie, the creators of the movie were able to capture the most important scenes. Granted that it has been a year since I have read the books, I didn’t leave the theater thinking they left out anything from the movie that needed to be included. I even went to see it again a few days later, and enjoyed it even more than the first time around. Whether or not you have read the books or have seen the first movie, Catching Fire is definitely worth your time and money.
