Last year saw the great beginning to a film franchise based on a best-selling book The Hunger Games. And while young adult books seemed to always live in the shadows of Twilight, this better, bigger and bolder series seems to be blazing past all expectations and transcending to all ages. The first instalment of this epic series was a good effort. Although director Gary Ross has handed over the reins to Francis Lawrence, we are now following a rather impressive smoke trail with the sequel Catching Fire. Catching Fire sees life after the first film, which saw Katniss Everdeen defeat The Hunger Games alongside her pretend boyfriend Peeta. Now living in the aftermath, a planned Victory Tour to celebrate their winnings will see them visiting the districts and the families of those fallen tributes. Unfortunately, Katniss and Peeta won by defying the Capitol and President Snow is not happy, seeing their defiance paraded in front him. Not only this, but Panem and it's districts seem on the verge of revolution. Snow will do anything to nip it in the bud, even if that means sending Katniss and Peeta back into the areana.

Where the first movie lay some impressive groundwork, Catching Fire has built an impressive franchise empire. Holding so dearly to the heavy themes of the second book, Lawrence translates the action, tension and wrought emotions so effortlessly to screen. Not only are we submerged in a film that is darker than the first, but we are hooked from the opening sequence to the credits. Lawrence has picked up on the passion, the fight for survival that makes Catching Fire such an intriguing piece in the trilogy (now saga.) Using this to expand on the world first captured by Ross, Lawrence takes away the mistakes of shaky cam and instead uses ambitious and grandiose scenes to encapsulate the anger that is burning throughout the movie.

Here Catching Fire unites so many different parts with equal excitement and dismay. The Victory Tour is full of the doubts and jeopardies as well as a feast of imagination as they travel back to the colourful world of the Capitol; some seriously well done set and costume design is trotted out here. And going back into the arena is still as riveting as the first film but it is a a much more sadistic and vicious arena than the first. Lawrence never lets go of the line of conscious that this sequel is much more menacing than before, that going back is ultimately going to death.

Of course, Lawrence has some talented lead players to carry, not only the wrath, but the emotional elements and portray them so effectively on screen. Handing such material to actress of the moment and Oscar Winner Jennifer Lawrence would always produce some brilliant work. Here Katniss has little lines to deal with but Jennifer Lawrence manages to excavate the inner turmoil of her; the scared child who has to make believe for cameras, the fighter who is trying to save her loved ones and the rebel who is uniting a nation. These layers of Katniss are all here and embodied so wonderfully in Jennifer Lawrence’s portrayal.

She plays against characters old and new who equally encapsulate the spirit of the movie; Elizabeth Banks is much more grown into her role as Effie, Stanley Tucci is vile but charming as The Hunger Games host Ceaser Flickerman and we can always rely on Donald Sutherland to give us a quietly fuming villain, alongside Phillip Seymour Hoffman as head Game Maker Plutarch. In the same respect, fresh faces such as Sam Cafflin’s playboy fighter Finnick Odair and Jenna Malone’s foul mouthed and raging Johanna are happily welcomed into the series. The most impressive here is Josh Hutcherson who has grown into his role as Peeta. Where previously he seemed like a throw away pawn in the franchise, he has now matured Peeta who is every bit as frightened and anguished as Katniss is. All the while, he has these moments of kindness, love and selflessness. Having Hutcherson develop this role in this way is vastly impressive and you’ll go in backing Katniss, coming out stunned by his acting.

It is grandiose yet poignant, balancing so many different themes and roles extremely well. It gives a better taste of the franchise and dystopian world that is twisted and bent. Catching Fire is not only a faithful adaptation of the book but it will drag those who haven’t read the source material into the heart of the action and characters. It is bold and exhilarating, leaving you aching for more. And dare I say, it is probably the blockbuster of the year. How many faithful literary adaptations are also great movies? The Venn diagram intersects less often than you think; as a rule, the most celebrated big-screen translations are those that dare to take liberties with their source material, the most famous example still being Peter Jackson's loving but substantially reworked take on The Lord of the Rings.

For director Francis Lawrence, who takes over the reins here from The Hunger Games' Gary Ross and will direct two further sequels, Catching Fire is a lose-lose scenario. Change too much from Suzanne Collins's beloved, nuanced second novel and he risks alienating a passionate fanbase (what few omissions there are have already rankled some). Change the bare minimum and he's left with a structurally problematic story of two halves: a slow-burn political thriller that U-turns jarringly into wall-to-wall action set pieces for its third act. As an adaptation of Collins's Catching Fire, Lawrence's film is close to faultless. As cinema, it's solidly engaging but consistently underwhelming.

That's not to say Simon Beaufoy and Michael Arndt's script isn't written with depth and clear love for its characters – Jennifer Lawrence remains a compelling and grounded presence playing a newly skittish, haunted Katniss, who's struggling to adjust to a life of plenty after winning the Games. Her defiant joint victory alongside Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) having sparked a revolution amongst the oppressed citizens of Panem, she becomes a target of the Capitol and in particular Donald Sutherland's creepily avuncular President Snow, a man from whom the phrase "I want us to be friends" sounds terrifying. Peeta has thankfully been tweaked into less of a damp squib, and there's some shrewd deepening of his previously lacklustre relationship with Katniss – forced by Snow to carry on their fauxmance for the Capitol's cameras, the pair simultaneously forge a genuine bond over their shared trauma. Similarly compelling is her more paternal dynamic with mentor Haymitch (Woody Harrelson), and Capitol lackey Effie's (Elizabeth Banks) growing conscience. Among the new recruits, only Jena Malone stands out as the straight-shooting Johanna, whose pragmatism goes some way towards compensating for Katniss's newly sentimental streak.

But where The Hunger Games had a strong self-contained narrative, Catching Fire plays ultimately like two and a half hours of setup – its downbeat cliffhanger of a climax was a perfect gut punch on the page but here leaves you aching for emotional resolution. The pair are ultimately thrown back into the arena to fight against fellow victors in a very special anniversary edition of the Games, but the survival instinct that made Katniss such a potent protagonist before is watered down here in favour of a half-baked desperation to keep Peeta alive ahead of herself. What Lawrence's direction does deliver is a physical dexterity that pays off in the third act's onslaught of assorted peril, and a visual lushness that emphasises the importance of water throughout the story. There's also a paranoid tone to the dystopian horror; Snow and the mysterious Plutarch Heavensbee (played by an unengaged Philip Seymour Hoffman) check in intermittently on our heroes via surveillance footage, in a trope that becomes crucial to Katniss's eventual quasi-victory.

Catching Fire succeeds on a great many fronts, not the least of which is pacing – despite its hefty running time it never feels less than lean and efficient. But it strays too often into unearned melodrama and by-numbers plotting, with even Lawrence struggling to sell some of Katniss's more abrupt emotional shifts. Fans who want to see a story they already love brought vividly to life won't be disappointed, but there's nothing here to engage the uninitiated.
