Hunger Games: Catching Fire - Movie Review

The Hunger Games was a huge box office hit two years ago. Millions of people watch Katniss Everdeens fight for survival against other children. It was a cruel game for the rich for the simple sake of enjoying themselves. A brutal world as portrayed in other media like “Battle Royal”. The novel adaptation was decent at best, but for the second installment everything is different. Most prominent change was the director from Gary Ross to Francis Lawrence. Who thought this would change everything about the movie… in the best ways!

They should have named the movie “Loki and a bit of Thor” instead.

Another month with discussion about the NSA, the perfect time to release a movie about leaking confidential information of governments and terrorist groups to declare the truth. The movie is quite a bit Anti-USA, like it was the case with Edward Snowden. It's no surprise that the movies failed to gain a standing with US audience. Most people have heard about Wilileaks and the biggest scoops they did in the history of mankind, but do you know what happened behind the scenes? This movie will tell you about it in a dramatic way in the viewpoint of one of its members.
