Part two of the mega-successful franchise features more camp dystopia
DVD cover - The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Gary Ross, 2013

Lionsgate

Part two of the mega-successful franchise features more of the camp dystopia that made the first edition such a refreshing addition to the sci-fi-with-soul genre.

Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) sets off on a victory tour – but president Coriolanus Snow (no sniggering, please) is determined to make her pay for her obstreperous attitude.

High-class hokum, grounded by Lawrence’s committed and earnest performance.
