Reviews

David Edelstein, New York Magazine: "Relatively speaking, Catching Fire is terrific. Even nonrelatively, it's pretty damn good."

Cath Clarke, Time Out: "Like Katniss ducking a poison-tip arrow, the keepers of Suzanne Collins's trilogy of fantasy novels have dodged the perils of the sloppy second franchise film."
