“Catching Fire” came out November 22 with high expectations. The sequel to “The Hunger Games” made over $158 million in a week. “Catching Fire” is projected to be the best selling movie of 2013. All the actors returned from the first movie which helped keep the chemistry from the last movie.
Catching Fire, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark have returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games. After their victory, they must leave their friends and family, for a "Victors’ Tour" of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is going to rise, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell).
It mostly follows the story line of the book but does leave a few key things out. This movie would be appropriate for kids 10 and over because of the gory effects of the film. Other than that I would recommend this movie, but only after seeing the first “Hunger Games” or you will be completely lost during Catching Fire.
