Storyline

A year after winning the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen and her partner, Peeta Mellark must go on what is known as the Victor's Tour wherein they visit all the districts. But before leaving, Katniss is visited by President Snow who fears that Katniss defied him a year ago during the games when she chose to die with Peeta. 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. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

Gale Hawthorne: [Katniss almost shoots him] Easy. Saw some turkeys on the way here. Crossed right in front of me like I wasn't even there.
Katniss Everdeen: How rude of them.
Gale Hawthorne: That's what happens when you spend six days a week working in the mines. Stupid birds start to think they own these woods.

Plagiarized Version OF Japan's "BATTLE ROYALE 2"
25 December 2013 | by (Bundelkhand Region) – See all my reviews

Suzanne Collins's apologia to the capitalists and greed merchants who bankrupted the economy of the world in the 1930's borders on sanctimonious state sanctioned plagiarism, made by an inept puppeteer of emotions.

Written merely to make train loads of money and sold to meandering and lost U.S. audiences, who humbly crave a place in the world and a pain numbing drug (feel good cinema), ensnarled both by their love of sugar and savvy chic theater appeal, while their enthusiastic leaders wage war in foreign soils, this is the continued attempt of Hollywood to enter once again the politics of the "I".

Using the theme of "courageous moral values" (much like today's incompetent charismatic leaders), which time and time again is sequestered by those in power to move the humble masses into ideological behavior patterns, Collins crafts a narrow look into difficulties of being infatuated with two hot guys, whose lack of foresight and intelligence, makes them, and Katniss herself, all gullible and 'proud', traits possessed by most of the lower class, to their detriment.

Absolutely devoid of any human interest or articulation, this film is pure rubbish, created by an "opium inducing Hollywood" to forget that "times are hard" and that by the lie which they force feed to the masses, "sheer determination and hard work", they'll all be better. Well, that is hardly reality, and unlike Battle Royale, neither is this film, it borders on liquid loads of sentimentality, showing starving families and kids who crave a better life, hungering for the "American dream" just around the block, which itself is a fictitious and disastrous lie. Instead of properly showing the Katniss as she is, an exploited and misguided archer without an IQ or class consciousness, subjugated day one from indoctrination in an industrial-capitalist world, a mere casualty of an oppressed class, Collins surges her to the role of a saint for the poor and downtrodden. She pays off her 'welfare' because she's so ashamed to be on it, she gives apples to blind kids and she kisses her old mum at night, oh what loyalty to authority! Well, inject sugar into my veins, I can overcome my own poverty if I merely get into an death dome to have my brains splattered by greedy promoters and homicidal youths. This childish disposition to which Collins indulges us to drink, is nothing but empty and stale air. Collins makes Katniss into a wooden girl, invulnerable at all to our own failings, and therefore, inhuman, without fault.

Cartoon-like episodes are neither vivid nor distinct, and by the end of this film, we feel like we have watched another worthless re-packaging of Battle Royale but with the same indeposable values that the U.S. seems to heap upon the unaware, blind, obedient masses. Instead of actually reading important books, a trait which is entirely forgotten by U.S. audiences, they want "feel good portions" heaped upon them.

This film drips with the adoration of petty values espoused by the elite classes while they themselves eat well and are mired in their own hypocrisy. Please, some audience members are not stupid, but most are, and they will praise this unworthy film, along with others, as the splendid creation of an artist touched by her evocation of the future which she has created. Not much substance for this weak stab at the BR Genre.
