Cinema Scholar 6 April Warning: Spoilers Well, it seems that everything has been said already. Despite knowing this beforehand, I still went to see the film expecting something decent.
I was quite disappointed when I walked out. For a film that was supposed to be all about teen violence, there seemed to be very little violence in the film.
The few scenes depicting violence were toned down and lacked gore. Perhaps good character development could save this, but, sadly, there was hardly any.
All the dialogues seemed forced and monotonous. I was hoping to see the characters converse with each other, but all I saw was actors reading their lines.
It struck me as odd that the boy who liked her was all smiles, despite seeing his love interest make out with some nerf herder on the big screen. Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote. That which is old, is new again. But, to the film. One wonders if Miss Collins, author of the series, ever read Frederic Brown, or watched classic Star Trek in the late s or during its syndication run in the 70s and 80s, because the basic bulk of the story is taken right out of "Arena" which also saw reincarnation via an issue of "Adam Strange" in Detective Comics.
Some critiques here; in the original "Arena" we had Captain James T. Kirk pitted against a very fake looking intelligent lizard-captain, with the goal being for said starship captains to finish each other off in a "more civil" manner, as opposed to creating a mess in space via starship combat.
In "Hunger Games" the main characters must fight for a dystopic world, again to avoid a messy war. This verse Kirk and the Gorn who were fighting over territory.
Woody "let me tie up traffic on the Golden Gate Bridge some 12 years ago" Harrelson makes an appearance as an aged vet of the games as I digress bitterlywho relays what wisdom and beneficence that he can to the selected champions of his district.
Which is better, or which do I prefer? No digital cinematography here.

This is pure film making. The costumes were interesting, and the makeup fell into the same category; trying to look appealing to young audiences while at the same time being edgy and flashy. All in all respectably shot. Not a super sterling film, but, using recycled material from a variety of sci-fi sources, with a gripping narrative, and polishing the package with a pink female bow, makes the film an interesting watch.The Hunger Games: Catching Fire is a American dystopian science fiction adventure film based on Suzanne Collins' dystopian novel Catching Fire (), the second installment in The Hunger Games attheheels.com film is the sequel to The Hunger Games () and the second installment in The Hunger Games film series, produced by Nina Jacobson and Jon Kilik, and distributed by Lionsgate.
