Catching Fire Movie Review

One of the most talked about movies this year and especially this fall has been the second segment of the Hunger Games series,  The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The movie ticket sales were astounding and are in the top 5 largest box office sales.

In its first weekend, Catching Fire grossed about $161.1 million dollars, which is only 5 million dollars behind Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows Part 2. Catching Fire is already passing the first movie in the series, and is estimated to double what its prequel made. Behind this success lie the dedicated fans as well as an even broader moderate fan base.

Overall, Catching Fire was very well made, with an amazing cast including Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and Josh Hutcherson. The only critique that I will make is that the ending was cut off too fast and told the audience almost nothing. Most audience members I’ve talked to seem to agree. We were left hanging. This can only mean that fans will once again show up in droves to see the next movie in the series.

“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is in theaters this holiday season.
