“The Hunger Games: Catching Fire” is the second movie in the trilogy of “The Hunger Games,” with all returning characters and a whole new twist of events. Academy award winner Jennifer Lawrence is almost perfect in the role of Katniss Everdeen, conveying her as one would think and picture her from the novels. Actor Josh Hutchinson plays his character Peeta with strong, loving, and convincing emotion that is much of an attention grabber for all the girls!

The second film follows up on the tributes returning home from the games, as they have been rewarded with riches and their own new area where they now live in District 12, called the “Victor’s Village.” Now, there is tension forming up with President Snow, over his concern and discontent with Katniss and Peeta’s bond of love. President Snow orders both tributes to continue on their Tour as Victor’s of the 74th annual Hunger Games, but is now skeptical about the uprising that can form from the 12 districts, because of Katniss Everdeen, as an Icon and symbol of “hope” in order for the districts to rebel against the Capitol, leading up to the fear of a Revolution.

With Snow being very dissatisfied of the two tributes, he decides to draft the previous winners of the games along with Katniss and Peeta, into the 75th annual Hunger Games: the Third Quarter Quell. Although the structure of the games remains similar, the atmosphere, setting, and the system is completely different with an ending to the games that no one will expect!
