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

Goofs

President Snow is drinking champagne and his backwash turns the drink bloody red. This is never mentioned again or revisited in the entire film, but it is addressed in later films. In Mockingjay Part 1, Finnick explains that Snow would poison political threats and he would even drink from the same cup to deflect suspicion. But that the antidotes didn't always work which left him with sores in his mouth that would never heal. The roses that he wore were also used to mask the odor. This is also mentioned by Finnick in the movie and the point is made it the books, as well. See more »

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.

Hollywood's Greedy Ripoff of the first Act of the Japanese Cult Classic, Battle Royale II: Requiem
3 March 2015 | by See all my reviews

This is a great example of a Hollywood budget that was utterly wasted. The reason you go to a movie like this is not to have the pivotal action scenes left up to the imagination. The acting is atrocious. It seems to be making fun of itself at times, which is just sad. Is it SNL or is it a 15 dollar per ticket Hollywood feature? It's odd because this movie cost 125 million dollars and yet it has all the special effects of a made for TV movie...

I just finished watching "Maze Runner" which was surprisingly good for what it was, and I was shocked to find out that it only had a $34 million budget. Honestly, there was 2-3 times the action and excitement in Maze Runner vs Mockingjay.

I like Hunger Games for a lot of reasons but this movie just dropped the ball big time, it is boring, it adds nothing of real note to the story, and it makes the actors in it look bad.
