HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE is an adaptation of the second novel in the trilogy by Suzanne Collins. It continues the story of Katniss Everdeen, who is now required to participate in a special anniversary version of the 'Hunger Games'. The film is rated 12A for moderate violence and threat and infrequent strong language.

There are a number of scenes of moderate violence and threat, including sight of a man being flogged by soldiers. This results in brief sight of the man's bloodied back. However, there is no emphasis on blood or injuries, either here or elsewhere in the film. During the 'games', Katniss is constantly under threat, from other contestants, from poisonous gas, and from a rampaging gang of baboons. Nonetheless, the emphasis is firmly on her strength and resourcefulness.

The film contains two bleeped, but clearly identifiable, uses of strong language ('f**k'). There is also infrequent use of mild bad language.

In one scene a young woman removes her clothes. However, her back is to camera and there is no clear detail of nudity.

No-one younger than 12 may see a 12A film in a cinema unless accompanied by an adult. No-one younger than 12 may rent or buy a 12 rated video or DVD.
