If you have been wondering whether Hunger Games: Catching Fire can repeat the wonder Gary Ross left us before leaving, then you will be more than satisfied. If you have not been looking at the reviews for Hunger Games: Catching Fire, it is time to check it out- with currently 30 reviews in, only 1 has so far been rotten, leaving a score of 96%. Though the amount of reviews in is just a small portion of the reviewing community, this bodes well for the film.
With tracking suggesting it might even beat Iron Man 3’s opening weekend as it opens next weekend, the second installment, as reviews have mentioned, have not only managed to avoid the bad will of second installments (they usually don’t go up to standard with the original, considering everyone has high expectations) and went against the trend of recent adaptations of YA novels not being received well with critics, the film even managed to impress some people to the extent that they consider this film an improvement over the first. However, the difference is very big here- some people argued that the first installment is a masterpiece which the second cannot catch up with. Here are some statements from rotten tomatoes for you to look at:
A safe, serviceable, carefully crafted action drama in which the subversive seeds planted in the first story take welcome root.
“Catching Fire” makes for rousing entertainment in its own right, leaving fans riled and ready to storm the castle.
