It's finally here, the moment we've all been waiting for, Katniss Everdeen as played by Jennifer Lawrence is back and is better than ever. I didn't fall asleep during this movie as the title of the article implies, but I thought it was catchy (fire.)
Basic plot summary is that while touring with Peta, Katniss is now the face of the government, even though she hates the idea. To rid the world of Katniss and other Hunger Game victors, a quarter-quel, which is a special Hunger Games, is concocted so that only previous winners may compete and all other citizens of the 12 districts are safe this year.
This movie takes you to a place you have only seen once before, if you saw the last movie. I enjoy movies that take you to places you've never been because you have no frame of reference for how it should look or feel. There were amazing set pieces and beautiful scenes.
The acting was ok for what it had to be. No one is going to get an award for their acting, but it kept the movie together.
All in all, this movie was pretty good, it had plot twists that I didn't see coming and a few that I did. Seeing as the government is on the war path, it makes sense that if you contradict them, you will face the consequence. It's like high school and the government are the bullies. Katniss revolting against the government feels right, though people around her suffer the consequences.
I'd say see this movie in theatres while you can to see it on the big screen, but if you're going to wait to rent it, make sure you dedicate the time to enjoy it.
