The Hunger Games return with such a sequel twist that you can't believe writer Suzanne Collins didn't think of film when writing. Catching Fire builds up with all types of subversive messaging which is interesting but also brings into relief the limitations of the genre and film.
A French gangster-turned-chef (Johnny Halliday) arrives in Hong Kong after his daughter and her husband are murdered in a gang hit. He teams up with three local Triad members to find out who was responsible... and make them pay.
Halliday's character's name 'Costello' may be allusion to Alain Delon's famous hit-man role of 'Jeff Costello' in Jean-Pierre Melville's Le Samouraï. Delon was originally supposed to play Halliday's role.
