Re: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

I read the first two books and really liked them, but the movie toned down the violence so much that it undercut a lot of the tension, and made it all feel just a little too safe and tame for my taste. It never really felt like Katniss was truly at risk like in the books.

And broadening the perspective beyond Katniss's POV removed a lot of what made the books unique as well, I thought.
