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

Trivia

The first letters of Effie Trinket, Katniss Everdeen, Haymitch Abernathy, and Peeta Mellark's last names spell TEAM. Making, more poignant, Effie's line, "Show them we're a team." See more »

Goofs

After President Snow drinks from his glass, the backwash turns the drink bloody red. In the very next shot, from afar, the champagne is golden. 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.

Killed potential and romance
8 March 2020 | by kmmaryannaSee all my reviews

First thing that ruined all sequels was romantic line. Every single part they try to make some "surprise" out of main romantic line. But one twist doesn't work twice. Either they should've done slow scenario or it was better to change motivation. BUT! Everything stays the same including plot twists. That's why pure characters were really spoiled by this. Who loves whom etc? The next minus is no background story about characters. It could be really interesting to know more about mentors or other players. Also the president and his power doesn't look strong at all. Talking about good points. I think there appeared some good seeds from first movie, I truly loved how Lawrence portrayed changes caused by Games. But in the end all the continuations are rather weak and disappointing.
