"Catching Fire" makes for rousing entertainment in its own right, leaving fans riled and ready to storm the castle. 
- Peter Debruge

A safe, serviceable, carefully crafted action drama in which the subversive seeds planted in the first story take welcome root.

Dismiss it as a popcorn movie if you must, but at least they've bothered to serve it with real butter and truffle salt.

The rare sequel that surpasses its predecessor, 'Catching Fire' tackles head-on the repercussions of the events of "The Hunger Games," deepening Collins' cinematic mythology while proving that teen-lit is more than capable of tackling complex ideas.

CATCHING FIRE bests THE HUNGER GAMES in every way. If the trend continues this series will be a political science fiction epic that will endure for generations.
