Storyline

Twelve 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

[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.

battle royale 2 desecrated
3 July 2014 | by (Tokyo, Shinjuku district) – See all my reviews

Horrid. Where's the -5 rating? JLaw proved she cannot act. If this is one of her best works it really isn't saying much cuz her other ones are certainly no better or worse than this. A flat voice, no emotion. I like Donald but even here he doesn't do much for the film.T ake a look at Battle Royale 2: Revenge (2000) with Riki Takeuchi and tell me it is not the same! I watched The Hunger Games: Catching Fire last night and when it came to the fight scene with the clock arena, I thought I've seen that before, I mean exactly like that scene. Are there no rules against this kind of plagiarizing? The movie unfortunately drags out the pacing to fit three movies making even Donald Sutherland so beyond boring that I watched a lot of it at 1.5 speed (great feature). The story isn't interesting at all. At first I thought this should be good, but it never gets going. A movie can be slow and not boring, but not in the case. It was hard to stay awake and I watched it during the day.
