This is a great "middle" of sequence movie. The first movie was obviously awesome. And there will be a third since it is a Trilogy. And sometimes the middle movies of a saga can really be boring. This one was really good. Never saw the resolution to the "Games" section coming. Really great writing!! Gives you a resolution to the actions in this movie but leaves you ready for the next one!! I loved it.

and the set up is perfect. The only disadvantage is you need the first one to understand the second one. Can't see these out of order or jump in the middle.

This was not as good as the first one -not by a long shot. The acting and production value were great, as usual, but the action and the plot seemed to disconnect with each other and the audience. Okay, most of the actual audience was mindless fan girls who were going to love it no matter what - but on a "real" audience... Some scenes were pointless, others crammed too much information/exposition into a small space. It just seemed that the filmmakers took exactly what was in the book and filmed it, making no effort to translate the structure or perspective for a movie audience instead of a reader. It was a big let down from the first one, but not a terrible movie. Except the ending. That was dumb.

Not much should be expected from this latest installment of "The Hunger Games" since the so called "novels" from which it is derived are mainly designed for the brain dead illiterates who wouldn't know real literature if it bit them in the head. But this film, which is at least an hour too long for its meager subject matter, is an insult to even its target audience, a convoluted, poorly photographed, badly acted mess. As for the author Suzanne Collins' so-called unique vision of a futuristic society, pardon me if I find it impossible to believe that regular folks will allow themselves to become cattle living in communes while those in power with all the education and wealth choose to live their lives living in replicas of a Miami Beach Hotel wearing Elton John's discarded wardrobe.
