Catching Fire — the second installment of post apocalyptic saga The Hunger Games — is faster, sleeker and grander than the original, says CBC film reviewer Eli Glasner.

Resting on returning star Jennifer Lawrence as heroine Katniss Everdeen and memorable performances from co-stars such as Donald Sutherland, the thriller also features fine performances from new cast additions, including Philip Seymour Hoffman, Sam Claflin and Jena Malone.
