Catching Fire should have been that in between, neglected, middle son of the family. Instead if turned out to be a gem. Having a much darker feel to it, it makes for great watching.
 
Picking up from where it left off last time, Jennifer Lawrence takes the role of Katniss Everdeen to new levels of emotions and expressiveness. Having won an Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook, she is her sublime best in this one.
 
After winning the Hunger Games, Katniss and Peeta Mellark return home to District 12. They now are required to take a victory tour of the country. President Coriolanus Snow visits Katniss and tells her she inspired rebellions in the districts when she and Peeta threatened suicide so both might survive the games. He orders Katniss to convince the country her and Peeta's love was real and the reason for their actions, and to convince Snow himself.
 
And from there the film goes into a plot which is intense, mature and perfectly setting up the final book of the series which will be made into a two part film.
 
If you are a fan or just a viewer, Hunger Games will make you think about the parallels of their society and ours and when the elite of our world will do the same.
