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, and announces a competition that could change Panem forever.

one of the best movies I have ever seen in my life. I just can't wait for Mockingjay pt. 1!

Great movie! Best one in the series so far! Just saw Mockingjay Part 1on the 21st, its a close call between this one and that. Happy movie watching!

to be honest, the first movie was way better.

Good sequel. But a must-watch B4 watching "Mokingjay 1/2" as this is setup to those flicks.

Suspenseful movie. Long but never a dull moment. Provokes thought about how the rulers (financial and governmental) pit common people against one another.

I have enjoyed this so far even though it is set in a bleak future.

I saw most of this on an airplane and decided to take it out of the library to finish watching it. I thought it was an entertaining movie but I was confused about what happened at the end....and had to read a few summaries online to figure out what exactly happened (haven't read the books!). Good movie!

The book was great. This film, not so good. maybe I am getting bored with the whole idea of Katniss but I am not a teenager.

Not perfect for what it should've been, but a good movie nonetheless. A few slow parts here and there, as well as some character elements that seemed really unnecessary. As others have noted, the end seemed a bit rushed and abrubt...but, it all leads up to "Mockingjay" Pt. 1 & 2, which I certainly do look forward to in concluding "The Hunger Games" trilogy.

I promise you, he's (president Snow) not happy. Instead of being in love, you two sound like you're reciting from a drilling manual.
