The second film in the four-film Hunger Games series is better than the first, with much more developed plot and characters. Unlike the first film, Catching Fire provides a clear and strong message that the oppression, injustice and military occupation suffered by the districts cannot be tolerated. Will the millions of young viewers understand that this film serves as an allegory of our world today and that they too can raise their arms in nonviolent defiance against the Domination Systems of our time?
