Storyline

Six months 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

Quotes

[first lines]
Gale Hawthorne: [as Katniss almost shoots him] Whoa, whoa. 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. You spend six days a week working in the mines and stupid birds start to think they own these woods.
[brief pause]
Gale Hawthorne: When's the tour leave?
Katniss Everdeen: Couple hours.
Gale Hawthorne: Well, let's go.

Mass Marketing Storytelling 9th Grade Literacy
21 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Your very first experience with this film is with the dialogue which should leave you wondering what level audience this film is trying to reach. I would guess any barely functioning ninth grader was their max literacy marketing level. Acting was robotic with actors chosen for eye candy appeal. Plot wise The Hunger Games "starving" comes from a lack of creative storytelling; just far-fetched improbabilities filling 3/4ths of film then to close with the same old ending we've seen before, i.e. brief, boring scenes of someone quickly (for budgetary reasons) dying. Even then you really don't see much of that person's finale - they just cheaply disappear. Even the lack of an ending/closure is transparent storytelling for profit.

Watch "The Starving Games" spoof/parody of this movie for it's spot-on exposure of the juvenile mass marketing appeal of this movie.
