“Catching Fire” is the second installment of the Hunger Games trilogy. In the first movie, “The Hunger Games,” the post-apocalyptic North America is transformed into Panem accounting with 12 districts. The districts are divided by their specialty like agriculture and coal miners. As punishment for rebelling, the districts are forced to compete in an annual event, known as the Hunger Games. Two tributes from each district, a boy and a girl, ages 11 to 18 are forced to kill until one remains standing.

After surviving the previous’ years Hunger Games, Katniss played by Jennifer Lawrence and Peeta played by Josh Hutcherson are forced to rejoin as tributes for another year for the quarter quail. Unfortunately for the capital of Panem, this year’s tributes are prepared to fight but not against each other, but against the capital. The action throughout the movie is very exciting. There’s enough of action and romance. Unfortunately the movie does not catch significant events that may be meaningful to the readers. Aside from the lack of details, the movie ended too suddenly. One moment there is so much action and combat and excitement, then the next it ends. Just like that.

I recommend the movie. It is very exciting to watch the characters from the book come to life But if you are looking for an exact replica of the book, you will be disappointed.
