With both Katniss and Peeta declared the winners, it is fueling a possible uprising. He tells Katniss that while on tour she better try to make sure that she puts out the flames or else everyone she cares about will be in danger.

They fell short, way short. I was very bored, laughed a bit, that was it.
Let me say before I review this movie, that I did not read the books. I went into this movie as a moviegoer hoping that I would be pleased by the films adaptation onto the big screen. I loved the first movie, it was great and well done, but I am highly disappointed by this sequel. Of course, the acting was great, but the movie itself, was very boring and stretched out. I could care less if it is like the book or not, since I did not read. It had some funny parts in this movie but that was the only thing that caught my eye. There is pretty much 40-50 useless minutes at the beginning of the film before they even start the games. They use cheesiness throughout the film which makes it laughable and unbearable. Don't get me wrong, I went into this film expecting very highly of the film and was very disappointed. I went in believe what the "fan girls" of the movie said. They said it was "the best movie ever!!" or "very awesome!". Overall, don't waste your money seeing it in theaters. Wait until you can rent it at home or even watch it on television. It is not a must see movie as people suggest. Also, I only paid 3 dollars for my movie ticket to see this, so that is saying something. I probably won't even buy this on Blu-Ray even though I have the first one on a three disc special edition Blu-Ray.
Katniss or Kantmiss. This sequel is a copy.
Spoiler Alert. Enjoy the movie first if you don't want to be sullied by another's opinion.

First, there is another movie in the wings and given the boffo box office of this meager effort will make millions more.

Let's see, how can we take a formula, alter it slightly and still keep the same thing? Make a sequel to "The Hunger Games" and call it "Catching Fire." We have a subplot involving the revolution that we thought was set off in the first movie. Obviously it wasn't but with Katniss' providing the impetus, rebellious elements are at work in this movie. One is reminded of the "Matrix."

In normal human existence, those that benefit give enough to those who don't so there will not be a revolution. Here, nothing is given back but propaganda. Kind of reminds me of the current American administration but that's not for this post.

It's all so formulaic and predictable. The whole goal is to get the "Whole World" to hate Katniss Let the floggings begin while showing Katniss in a wedding dress. Starve the people while showing Katniss at an elaborate dinner. This "let them eat cake" motive just doesn't work.

Potboilers are not new. Sinclair Lewis wrote "Kingsblood Royal" and it was a potboiler par excellence. But a potboiler inside a potboiler just gilds the Lily. Why? Here's my opinion inside of an opinion: There is simply not enough material to make three good movies but we want to stretch the franchise. So let's stretch the first concept from a pretty well done movie and see how much we can make without much effort. That what the producers must have been thinking. And make a fortune they did while elevating JenLaw into international stardom.

We know that our heroine will not be killed so this movie just drags through "The Perils of Pauline" but with supporting actors who do a good job of self sacrifice. We find out later in the film that they are all in on the joke but who cares. Supposedly nobody dies and they are all hiding in District 13 (Oh, those triskaidekaphobes.) as opposed to "District 9" which may have been more entertaining.

The acting is good and outside of the plastic "elite" roles, characters evolve to a degree. Actually, the characters do not develop in a sense but do coalesce due to extreme hardship. Supposedly they will all have to kill to survive but it sort of works if you don't pay too much attention.

Katniss as Xena warrior princess kind of works but Xena in a transforming wedding dress? Is she Xena or Kantmiss? The fake "marriage" theme just doesn't work if Snow and company are trying to kill her off. Now she's also the victim of a pregnancy which must be immaculate because there is no sex in this movie. But it is all a lie to get support for her plight from the populace that isn't so downtrodden that they can actually send help to someone else. What?

Now instead of individual protagonists, we have couples and these couples are past winners of the Hunger Games. I thought when you won the first time, you were set for life and your district was favored? What happened to that plot line? When did the couples start winning the stupid games? Supposedly there's only been seven gavels with one winner each so where do we get 24?

Fierce couples they are too. These are some really bad ass pairs who drop like paper tigers and operate like unintelligent zombies. At least the first crew were all thinking people and the games worked out in a way. But here, they face much stiffer competition from the environment that they ever do from any other person. The Mandrills are real, imagined? The mocking birds are real/unreal? When is a bite a bite and imagination can kill you if this were a "Fringe" episode where people were attacked by imaginary steel butterflies. Here the fog causes boils and the water cures but you can't drink it. You have to tap a tree. Just any tree?

Supposedly, this whole mess is watched by the "Whole World" and one wonders what statement is being made. If the winners are really a distraction, why would anyone not let the cat out of the bag so to speak? The winners obviously know that the whole thing is BS and they all seem to be pretty independent minded. During the introduction one of the winners Jena Mallone, I think, chastises the process and complains that she was promised an easy life but she's back in these stupid games. She challenges Snow during the games too. Now, that's pluck. Why not kill her? She's obviously telling state secrets and while no Snowden, her crime would be equally reprehensible to the elites.

There are no surprises. Don't we go to movies like this to be surprised at some point? Aren't we more satisfied when our plot-following senses are jarred out of sync and we are surprised and happy with plot twists? The only twisting thing here is the wire that Katniss shoots into the dome with arrows that fly higher than the sky.
Big disappointment (may contain spoilers)
I am so disappointed in this movie. I loved the first movie. This movie has maybe 5 minutes of plot spread out over 2+ hours. This movie should really have been a 5 minute epilogue on the first movie or, better yet, a 5 minute intro sequence on the next one - the impact would have been much greater.

The direction and production were flat and uninspired, the story non- existent (and if this matches the book as described in another review then I have no interest in the book either.) At the closing logo my first reaction was "Are you s****ing me, that's it?"

I am sad to see such a failure to reach potential, especially with an overall story line I find meaningful and important.
BATTLE ROYALE 2 won't repeat, I mean sometime in a remake.
One of my all time favorite world cinema is the Japanese version of this movie. Remakes are okay, but some movies won't suit for recreation because of its masterpiece value, believing that won't come close for the second time. Just like Mona Lisa, Starry Night, Birth of Venus, The Last Supper and other arts, it should have left alone untouched. Like Japanese did, because it was their story after all. This American version was not very good, and very much commercialized with the multiple movies chopped into various 'parts' approach kind of ruined. If I had not seen the original, probably I would have liked it. I knew the twists and turns so I did not get the excitements in those parts. So those who are not familiar with the 2003 movie can definitely have a good time.

It was a copycat from frame to frame, many things were altered in this movie. The most laughable was to see English-speaking celebs fighting with knives, hammers and bare-hand like the Japanese style. What I know in American action theme is that they take a gun and bang bang. The first poster where Jenifer Lawrence stricks the same pose as Shuya nanahara was kind of funny, gives the impression of a comedy movie. I liked Jenifer in 'American Kung Fu Hustle' and yet again she was not bad in this film except if you compare him with his counterpart from the Japanese movie, Tatsuya Fujiwara. It is one of the best role he has ever played, sadly the movie was not received well due to many other reasons than her.
Battle Royale 2 with Cheese
Its sad to see plagiarism being supported by so many people... ---This, to me, is the real moral to the story of The Hunger Games 2.

I refuse to put more than a one due to plagiarism, but...

The Good: The costume designer was Fantastic! For the most part, I felt, the acting was a bit higher than average.

The Bad: Worst idea ever to transform this premise into a kid/teen book and film.

Stop shaking the camera.

The Terrible: Suzanne Collins plagiarizing, Koushun Takami's novel Battle Royale; makes me feel all the worse after reading author Koushun Takami comments on being plagiarized. Koushun Takami is a stand up guy even after someone blatantly stole from you.
What a sad joke ..
Really childish movie, this planet is going dumber by the minute. Obviously the dudes well-connected enough to write for Hollywood can't … umm … write.

Just a few points: (1) not one intelligent (or at least funny) line of dialog in over 140 minutes; (2) The "Games" started after 81 worthless minutes; can't they afford to hire some reasonably intelligent dude to do some editing?; (3) The characters were one-dimensional (like in some fourth grader first attempt at writing): the big bro and the peace keepers-- ALL-EVIL, while Jennifer and her buddies were ALL-WONDERFUL; (4) The "Games" were ridiculously uncreative: poisonous fog that can be treated with water, really?!; (5) Not one twist during 146 min, except for the lame one (cuz it was overly expected, since it has to be at least some twist in any movie, right?) with the games director in the end.

If you're not part of the ridiculous tribe of low IQed 11-yo schoolgirls worshiping Bieber: RUN! My rating: 3/10
I wish you fans would be honest so others don't waste precious minutes of their lives
Slow, boring, disjointed, and those are the good points. Let's see, in the first movie, they went to the arena and fought to the death. In the second movie . . . . they went to the arena and fought to the death! Except in the second movie you have to go through about two hours of nothing to get to that point.

The nothing is really great, they live in a nicer house, they travel by train, they party, they travel by train, they whisper to each other a lot, they utter inane statements and pretend those are profound. I just saw it, and that's really all I can remember. What complete and utter dreck.

Oh, and when you get to the arena, it's about as stupid as it gets. But instead of talking about that incredibly boring part, let's talk about some idiocy. Plutarch is part of the revolution. He spends his whole time relaxing with President Snow, the leader of the enemy. How about just putting his hands around Snow's neck and chocking him to death? Or hitting Snow over the head with one of the many available objects?

And then there are all the twists. But why bother telling you because only someone with serious developmental disabilities would consider them to really be twists.

I've watched plenty of bad movies, but never have written a review. I am so aggravated with having wasted valuable hours of my life on this highly rated junk that I felt I had to try to save some of you who haven't yet fallen to the overly gushing fan reviews. SAVE YOURSELVES!
Battle Royale 2: the "Unofficial" Remake
IN A WAY, i am ... annoyed when I see the preview... I'm sure most people are. Do the director not know that Battle Royale 2 is NOT a small but fairly a big recent movie that won awards. Its like remaking Titanic or something. But anyhow... I am glad that this film is made - so that I can see if Francis Lawrence dare to remake the movie the SECOND TIME. Oh yea.. and by the way - all the topic about Quentin Taratino... you just have to admit he does rip off other movies. Not that I don't like him.. but those of you KILL BILL fans, just gotta watch an ancient Japanese movie called LADY SNOWBLOOD (1973). Same shots, same set, same music... i think better story. It even has Cartoon describing one of the character's past. You can not argue that Kill Bill is a complete rip off of this movie even though the huge scale of the story is a bit different. well i don't feel like typing anymore.. good luck you all!
Not at all impressed, not one bit.
Jennifer Lawrence returns as Katniss Everdeen, a tournament winner turned into the beacon of hope against a totalitarian government. In order to silence the uprising voices, President Snow (Donald Sutherland) decides to throw her back into the tournament so she could either be killed or her image is shattered.

In those few sentences I have described 135 minutes of a very overrated movie, that in essence... it has no essence.

Totalitarian governments have been used flawlessly in films like Brazil or V for Vendetta, but this movie is just a pop corn flick, and perhaps not even that. It's a bad joke printed on film.

In every turn they try to make Katniss a hero and a martyr, yet she fails to be likable, not Lawrence's fault, but the dull story she was thrown in.
