The Hunger Games: Catching Fire Movie Review:

Now this is what a book-to-film adaptation is supposed to be like. Catching Fire movie might be the best interpreted example I’ve ever seen. The director, Francis Lawrence, seemed to really understand that books, unlike the previous director, Gary Ross, who seemed to miss some key symbolism. Lawrence cuts certain elements from the books, as well as some scenes and characters entirely, but he doesn’t miss almost any key sequences that give meaning to the story. The only thing I wish he would’ve made more like the book was Katniss Everdeen’s interaction with Plutarch Heavensbee. In the book, there was a tiny bit of foreshadowing that I would’ve liked to see in the film. But that’s it. That’s the only thing in the entire book that was left out that should’ve potentially been included. That just amazes me how on point they were here. The increased budget also showed. The effects were better, as was the acting. Obviously Jennifer Lawrence is an amazing actress but the rest of the cast also did remarkably well (Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Jena Malone, Lenny Kravitz, etc.). Bottom line, regardless of whether or not you read the books, this movie stands alone as an outstanding viewing experience. I can’t wait to see how they portray the third book.
