REEL DEAL: The Hunger Games Catching Fire REVIEW

Having read the whole book trilogy made me a conscious critic for the movie, and when the first movie came out, I was impressed that they have condensed the story into a two hour movie which still excites me and amazes me on its execution. Now playing in theaters is the second installment of the Hunger Games: Catching Fire. Now I am expecting more from the series.

Katniss Everdeen (Jenifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Huctcherson) as victors of the 74th Hunger Games will noe embark on thei victory tour as a couple until they come into the rising revolution that is happening to the districts. The twist of the Quarter Quell, will bring them back ot the arena with the past victors and all those involved in the games.

What I loved about this sequel is its progressive storyline which stayed true to the nature of the book, and kept ample time for moments that are worth highlighting. I love the visual effects which was very carefully detailed especially with the technological and structural advancement in the world of Panem.
THE HUNGER GAMES CATHING FIRE also stars Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Lenny Kravitz, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Stanley Tucci, and Donald Sutherland.

THE HUNGER GAMES CATHING FIRE is distributed by Lionsgate and now showing in theaters nationwide.

Deliberation time kids! 

Show summary in 3 lines: Join the Rebellion!
Technical Effects: 5 out of 5 stars (Really really great!)
Plot: 4 out of 5 stars (Being a book adaptation, twists can be anticipated however execution was done right here like I haven't read the book! )
Acting and Actors: 4 out of 5 stars  (Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson nailed it again for the sequel, sorry Liam) 
Music and Soundtracks:  2 out for 5 stars (This would probably the down side, the songs were not as moving as the first movie, and old themes  (Panem National Anthem) are just looped until forever)
Pros:  FASHION, Effects, Arena, The Rebellion, Conspiracies
Cons: Music, Scenes that "could have been better"
Overall Rating: 4.3 out of 5 stars (Definitely better than the first movie, probably because of the progression of the story, but it did put the entertainment from the usual book reading)
