Note: The following text may contain spoilers

THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE continues the story of Katniss Everdeen, who is now required to participate in a special anniversary version of the 'Hunger Games'.

Violence

There are a number of scenes of moderate violence, 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.

Threat

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.

Language

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.
