I'd been looking forward to the second in the series with great anticipation,
the first was in my view indeed brilliant.
The winners of the 74th Hunger Games 'Katniss Everdeen'(Jennifer Lawrence) and
'Peeta Mellark'(Josh Hutcherson) have to leave their families behind to embark on a victory
tour organised by the 'Establishment' and read out the pre-written speeches, much to the annoyance
of the tour organisers, the pair are not playing by the rules.
District by district is visited by the pair, 'Katniss' begins to sense the undertones of
a rebellion, a observation not missed by 'President Snow'(Donald Sutherland)
The President announces a deadly 75th Hunger Games with a few rule changes,this time former winners
will be matched against each other.
'Katniss' and 'Hamitch's' name are drawn from area '12'.....quickly 'Peetra' offers to take
'Hamitch's' place an offer that cannot be overruled, so the winners of the 74th are back in the fray.
Candidates from many of the other districts are considerably more experience
than 'Katniss' and 'Peetra' which makes them rank outsiders, odds that suit the
President's intent, as he believes that the districts are inspired by last years winners.
Let the Games begin.............
'Jennifer Lawrence' is again outstanding in her role as 'Katniss Everdeen'
An exciting and often tense adventure with several superb action sequences
within the created jungle in which the ruling establishment try to orchestrate the outcome of the games for both entertainment and of course self-preservation.
Sadly the role of 'Plutarch Heavensbee'part of the 2nd part of 'Mokingjay' will have
to be altered following the recent passing of actor 'Phillip Seymour Hoffman'
The story has been set up perfectly for the 3rd in the series, trouble is we almost
certainly have to wait a while to see it Well worth a viewing
Special Features:
*Audio commentary with director 'Mikael Hafstrom' and writer 'Miles Chapman'
*Security: The real life of Tomb.
*Executing the plan.
*Clash of the Titans.
*Deleted Scenes.

Like the book? It follows fairly closely... but it has some great cinema moments. Some you might expect, especially having "seen" the book but some are properly dramatic.
As much Chrysalids / Distrct 9 as Battle Royale, this is much more than just a teen' pic.
Entertainment with a brain.
The cast are uniformly excellent. Lawrence has rightly been praised, but Donald Sutherland as Pres Snow, Lenny Kravitz (yes - If we're not careful we'll all go his way) et al go above and beyond

Good follow up to The Hunger Games, starring Jennifer Lawrence as the brave Catniss, well acted and similar to the book.

I didn't think i was going to like these films but agreed to watch them with my teenager. I ended up gripped by the first one and looked forward to the second one being released. I wasn't disappointed! Strong cast, good plot, lots of action. We're looking forward to the final one being released later this year (?).

The Hunger games is compelling to watch. The film's are not that different to he books. I think Jennifer Lawrence is an actor of extreme talent as I find her portrayal of Katniss so convincing .
