Academy Award winner Jennifer Lawrence returns in this thrilling sequel to THE HUNGER GAMES. Katniss and Peeta embark on a victory tour while President Snow plots a deadly new Hunger Games that could change Panem forever.
Every revolution begins with a spark.. Katniss Everdeen has returned home safe after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victor's Tour" of the districts. Along the way Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever..

Of the Hunger Games trilogy that is.
ive personally seen this movie many, many times. it is fantastic. it's one of my favorite movies and you should watch it.
The Hunger Games, the franchise on fire! After a hot reception from audiences in 2012, Lionsgate brings us back to the world of Panem and The Hunger Games with a sequel that goes right up there with The Empire Strikes Back and other sequels that are much better than their originals. The first games was the standard games up until the love story came into play. Now, they raise the stakes by having the climax of the first one send ripples of revolution through the nation. We open with Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) hunting like she used to, and Gale (Liam Hemsworth) shows up like last time, being all cool and casual. He encourages her to shoot a turkey instead of discouraging her from shooting a deer like in the first movie, only this time, shooting an arrow causes a flashback to the games, and after a panic attack Gale pulls her back to the present. I must praise the way Jennifer Lawrence portrayed PTSD in this movie (Like Robert Downey Jr. did in Iron Man 3 earlier in 2013), because she gets it right without mocking the millions of real-life vets with real PTSD. After Gale goes to his new job in the mines, Katniss gets an unexpected visit from President Snow (Donald Sutherland), who’s very unhappy with Katniss, and challenges her to convince him of her and Peeta’s (Josh Hutcherson) love. After waking up Haymitch (Woody Harrelson) for the start of the victory tour, they’re reunited with Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks), Cinna (Lenny Kravitz), and the rest of their prep team the book fleshed out and gave personality to (though at the party at the President’s mansion, Effie clearly name checks Flavius and Octavia from the prep team, go back and you’ll hear their names). After Caesar Flickerman (Stanley Tucci) introduces them on the Capitol feed, the tour begins, where Peeta tries to get to know Katniss better, fires of rebellion are kept contained (only so much), and ultimately, Katniss fails to convince Snow of her love for Peeta, initiating a chain of events that lead her and Peeta into a new arena with new (but familiar to Panem) tributes and new challenges. The new characters are developed as well as they’re needed to be in the context, but the spotlight still belongs to the star-crossed lovers. The plot is coherent, but the movie is (again) a long one, full of detail, but it could have had a few things gutted to make it shorter. I didn’t lose interest, but if it takes 80+ minutes to get to the titular event (The Hunger Games themselves), then you may be wasting time. Some events with whole book chapters got cut to glances and mentions, but otherwise, it was coherent. The visual was great as ever, and with a clearly larger budget and higher expectations, they delivered. The best part is Francis Lawrence kept a steady hand except for action, which was still easier to see than Gary Ross’ “shake like there’s no tomorrow” style. It may or may not have to do with the fact that instead of children, the tributes in the games are fully-grown adults, and the fact the MPAA has some level of standards for on-screen violence and its depiction, but I digress. James Newton Howard delivers the score worthy of the increasing drama in this installment, and there’s a lot more comic relief to be found here, as well as swearing (as in, some of the seven you can’t say on TV). The girl on fire’s story truly ignites here, and we get a sense of heightened tension. Remember who the real victor is here: you, me, and anyone else who enjoys this improved sequel.
i cant get enough of this film, i can watch it a thousand times and it nevers gets boring. its definately one to watch, if you thought the first hunger games was amazing then you'll absolutely love the 2nd film.
i love it
What a load off rubbish...hoping to be better than the first,but wasn't, for fans only ....still confused ?
Just like hunger games 1, I was dragged out to see it. Everything about this film just makes me sick. Don't trust the other comments.
There are reviews on here that say that this is 'the best film ever!' Although I wouldn't put this in the same 'greats' category with the Shawshank Redemption, Rocky or The King's Speech, I will say that it's pretty good. Better than the first one, in fact. I haven't read the books (because the first one bored the hell out of me) but I thought it raised some serious issues in relation to poverty, oppression and violence, along with defiance, strength and love. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would definitely recommend.
i loved the hinger games movie and this film is even better as it takes the story further i love it. it is sad, exciting, and well acted, a must see film. bring on the last 2 fims part 1& part 2.
Decent acting doesn't hide the awful and predictable plot, which is just another take on an uprising in a futuristic state controlled city caused by the unlikeliest of heroes. There's nothing new here, except for the actors and the craze it's caused.
Absolutely stunning, truly remarkable are words that only scratch the surface. Words can not describe my emotions, thoughts and feelings after watching this beautiful film. 😍 - My face while watching 😢 - My face after watching 😫 - My face after a week, knowing that I have to wait five months to see it again. 😝😢😍 - My face after seeing it arrive through my post. My face while watching it again. And my face knowing that I can watch it over and over and over again all day everyday. 😢 - My face waiting for Mockingjay. Honestly my ultimate film of all time. LOVE IT !!!
So, iv not seen the first installment...simply because at the time of release and all the hype about it, I disagreed with the concept behind the film. Kids killing kids. I know...only a film blah blah. To this day, still not seen the 1st one. I looked at this late the other night. It was the only film which had decent enough reviews so I gave it a whirl expecting it to be rubbish actually. How wrong was I? I loved every minute of it and hats off to Jennifer Lawrence who owns this film! I would definitely watch this again and will now watch the first one. This has better reviews so I'm not expecting a top notch version. You will not be disappointed with this movie. I'm now looking forward to the next part of the story.
