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

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.

1 in the film I was watching part, I've never read the books but boring I do not mean this term because people with real film culture, does not use such a large organization. I found the movie lacking in most important thing was action. Only the last 45-50 minutes of the movie action had. Te film into the stagnant and uninteresting until then developments passed. In addition, the desperation of the people in the film at the very front was the plan. They were so desperate that every event has a really unhinge and has reduced the credibility of the film. The visual effects, and in the last section action was very nice. I understand that action 3 intense in the film so shall it be. Rate a film based on the very bottom. The particular Thr, The Hobbit by The Desolation of Smaug Of. All personal'm thinking. Sincerely.
