Primrose (Willow Shields) is Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) sister. Katniss mother (Paula Malcomson). Gale (Liam Hemsworth) is Katniss's (Jennifer Lawrence) lover.

Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) have returned home after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games. They must go on the Victor Tour of the districts in Panem. They become targets of the Capital after President Snow (Donald Sutherland) says their acts in the Hunger Games sparked rebellion in the districts of Panem.

Will this be the end of Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson)?

In the film Hunger Games: Catching Fire I am happy to say they stuck with the book all the fans of the trilogy. I loved the costumes in the film so unique and colorful. The sets and scenes were gorgeous. The acting was good on everybody's part in the film. The storyline was interesting and it did not feel like 2 hours and 26 minutes. The film had a great message for people of all ages to stick with the people you love and trust. I can not wait till the next film Mockingjay in the trilogy.

Recommendation - I would greatly recommend going to see this movie on the big screen you will not be disappointed.

Rating - **** out of 4 Stars
