After winning the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark
return home to District 12. President Snow visits Katniss and explains that her
actions in the Games have inspired rebellions across the districts. He orders her
to use the upcoming victory tour to convince everyone her actions were out of
genuine love for Peeta, not deance against the Capitol.
As the tour begins, Haymitch Abernathy, mentor to Katniss and Peeta, warns them
that the "show" of their relationship must continue for the rest of their lives.
Katniss suggests a public engagement between herself and Peeta, which is
carried out and congratulated by Snow at his mansion in the Capitol.
Returning home, Katniss warns her friend Gale Hawthorne of Snow's threat to kill
both their families. Peacekeepers crack down on District 12 and Gale is publicly
whipped after attacking new Head Peacekeeper Romulus Thread. Snow
announces a special Hunger Games, the Third Quarter Quell, where all tributes
will be selected from previous victors. Katniss immediately devotes herself to
ensuring Peeta survives, recruiting Haymitch's help to do so. At the reaping, Ee
Trinket draws Katniss and Haymitch's names, but Peeta immediately volunteers to
take Haymitch's place.
As they prepare, Haymitch reveals that all the tributes are angry at being
returned to the Games and advises a reluctant Katniss to make allies. In the
pre-Games interviews, Katniss wears her wedding dress, as ordered by President
Snow, but her stylist Cinna rigs it to transform into a representation of a
mockingjay (as punishment, Cinna is later severely beaten by Peacekeepers
before a helpless Katniss is sent into the arena). Peeta announces that they are
expecting a baby which causes outrage and the audience of Capitol citizens to
begin shouting for the Games to be stopped.
In the Games, Katniss allies with Finnick Odair and the elderly Mags, from
District 4. The arena's outer forceeld shocks Peeta, stopping his heartbeat until
Finnick revives him. The group ees a poisonous fog, and Mags sacrices herself
so as to avoid slowing them down. When vicious mandrills attack, Peeta is saved
by the unexpected sacrice of a tribute from District 6. The group escapes to a
beach and meets District 3's Wiress and Beetee, and District 7's Johanna Mason.
Wiress discovers the arena is designed like a clock with regular hazards each
hour, but is killed soon after in a battle.
Beetee suggests using one of the hazards, a tree that is struck by lightning every
12 hours, and a coil of wire to electrocute the other remaining tributes. The group
separates to prepare the trap, but once alone Johanna suddenly attacks Katniss,
and discreetly cuts the tracker from her arm. Katniss returns to the tree and nds
an unconscious Beetee with the wire from the tree attached to a makeshift spear.
Unable to nd Peeta, Katniss almost attacks Finnick, but Finnick reminds her to
consider "who the real enemy is", as Haymitch had advised her prior to the
Games. Katniss attaches the remaining wire to an arrow and shoots it into the

arena forceeld as the lightning hits, causing a power failure that takes down the
dome's forceeld as well as the Capitol's surveillance.
Katniss awakens in an aircraft to nd Haymitch, Beetee, Finnick, and Plutarch
Heavensbee, the head Gamemaker, who is revealed to be a rebel against Snow.
He tells her they are bound for District 13, headquarters of the new rebellion, and
that half the tributes were aware of the plan to escape with Katniss, as a symbol
for the growing rebellion. They were unable to rescue Peeta and Johanna, who
were taken by the Capitol. A distraught Katniss is sedated after attacking
Haymitch. She later awakens to nd Gale by her side, who reassures that her
family is safe but also tells her that District 12 no longer exists.

243 professional critics, with a rating average of 7.5/10. The site's consensus
reads: "Smart, smoothly directed, and enriched with a deeper exploration of the
franchise's thought-provoking themes, Catching Fire proves a thoroughly
compelling second installment in the Hunger Games series."
It was the highest
rated science ction/fantasy movie of the year on the website.
On Metacritic,
which assigns a normalized rating out of 100 based on reviews from critics, the
lm has a score of 75 (citing "generally favorable reviews") based on 47
According to polls conducted during the opening weekend by
CinemaScore, the average grade audiences gave the lm was an A on an A+ to F
The Hollywood Reporter said that the lm has received "generally positive
and CNN reported that reviews were "overwhelmingly positive" but
noted that "an overarching complaint" was that it "runs needlessly long ... and the
screenplay and direction do occasionally fall short."
Entertainment Weekly
said the consensus was that the sequel is "a more-condent, more-polished movie
that delves deeper into Panem's political conict". It also reported, "Critics are
impressed that [Lawrence] commits to Katniss just as much as she would a
complex David O. Russell character."
Writing for The Village Voice, Stephanie Zacharek praised Jennifer Lawrence's
performance, writing that the actress is "both on re and in the process of
becoming, and its magnicent to watch."
Peter Travers of Rolling Stone gave
the lm 3.5 stars out of four and said, "Pop-culture escapism can be thrilling when
dished out by experts. Katniss is a character worth a handful of sequels. And
Lawrence lights up the screen. You'll follow her anywhere." He also commended
supporting actors Sam Clain and Jena Malone.
Reviewing on Roger Ebert's
website, Susan Wloszczyna of USA Today awarded the lm three out of four stars,
praising the acting of Jerey Wright, Amanda Plummer and Jena Malone and
referring to the challenges of the arena as "visually intriguing." Wloszczyna

writes: "...the one truly fresh inventionand the one that matters mostis Katniss
herself. With each on-screen chapter, the poor girl from District 12 continues to
fulll her destiny as an inspiration and a rebel ghter."
Ian Nathan of Empire
gave the lm 4 stars out of 5 and noted that it was even better than the rst lm.
He praised director Lawrence for "taking a more muscular approach" and
"sensibly downplaying" the love triangle, noting that "neither [Peeta nor Gale],
quite frankly, are t to lay a pinky on [Katniss'] quiver". One fault he did nd was
in Philip Seymour Homan's "surprisingly ineective performance".
One negative review came from Sophie Monks Kaufman of Little White Lies, who
praised Lawrence's performance but criticised the "dilution of the ingredients
that made The Hunger Games so gripping." She also found fault with the
"lumbering" plot, the "hamminess" of President Snow and Plutarch Heavensbee
and the "lacklustre and unconvincing script culled from a dramatically dicult
David Denby of The New Yorker argued that the premise "doesn't make
a lot of sense". He praised the "impressive" rst act and Jennifer Lawrence, for
"project[ing] the kind of strength that Katharine Hepburn had when she was
young." However, he found the second act "attenuated and rhythmless" and
criticised the "incoherent" nale that "will send the audience scurrying back to
the book to nd out whats supposed to be going on".
