Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever.

Kinji Fukasaku is a name associated with top-drawer, interesting cinema, carefully chosen plots and perfectionist execution. Unfortunately all of those seem to be completely untrue in this new movie, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. The second film in the unofficial remake franchise, is, a mindless movie trying to be intelligent, an unfunny movie trying to be funny and a thriller as thrilling as a commercial for Apple computers. In simple terms, the movie fails miserably. This is some of the laziest script writing I've had the displeasure to experience in years. Without further ado, i present the plot and somethings that are wrong with movie: Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark become targets of the Capitol after their victory in the 74th Hunger Games sparks a rebellion in the Districts of Panem.
The exciting parts of a PG-13 movie are the details, this movie lazily skimps away from all of that to cut to the love triangle. Now, this escape was what this movie is supposed to be all about, but you lose faith once you recognise all the trappings from the Japanese original. Okay I'm cutting the plot line short as its easier to read it up in Wikipedia. With semi decent acting, horrible music, depressing comedy(Helmsworth), this movie is aimed exclusively at the rural audience who have been numbed down enjoy ridiculous cinema. Please avoid this movie at all costs, let it be know that the audience expect some intelligence, or lets at least, say, some thought to whats being filmed.
