Description

Jennifer Lawrence reprises her role as Katniss Everdeen in the second instalment of the sci-fi adventure trilogy based on the novel by Suzanne Collins. Fresh from her triumph in the 74th Annual Hunger Games, Katniss, along with fellow winner Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), returns home to District 12 for some much needed rest. But soon after, while on a 'Victory Tour' of the other districts, she becomes aware of growing dissent to the Capitol's rule, and realises that rebellion is in the air. As Panem prepares itself for the third 'Quarter Quell' (75th Hunger Games), autocratic ruler President Coriolanus Snow (Donald Sutherland), still smarting from the Capitol's humiliation in the last games, stacks the deck to ensure that the upcoming tournament will wipe out any resistance from the districts once and for all.

Synopsis
THE HUNGER GAMES SAGA continues in this sequel that finds a revolution brewing as Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) take a "Victor's Tour" of the districts, and President Snow (Donald Sutherland) plots their downfall during preparations for the Quarter Quell, which only occurs every 25 years in celebration of the Capitol's victory over the districts. Hoping to put an end to the growing threat of rebellion, President Snow announces that the Quell's tributes will be reaped from the existing pool of victors -- guaranteeing Katniss a place in the arena. Though Katniss vows to keep Peeta safe even if it means sacrificing her own life, her fellow tributes have a different plan.

Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"[I]t's an improvement on the last go around: Lawrence stages the violence with less skittishness and more precision, and the film keeps throwing new obstacles -- a deadly fog, a flock of ominously screaming birds -- at its weary combatants." -- Grade: B
A.A. Dowd (19 Nov 2013, )
Chicago Sun-Times
"Jennifer Lawrence is one of our best young actresses, and she shines as the stubborn, courageous, vulnerable and heroic Katniss."
Richard Roeper (18 Nov 2013, )
Entertainment Weekly
"Katniss has become a star, a lightning-rod symbol of the early stirrings of a people's rebellion....Lawrence plays her as a riveting icon of girl power..." -- Grade: B
Owen Gleiberman (26 Nov 2013, )
Los Angeles Times
"Lawrence has clearly taken this role very much to heart, throwing herself into it to such an extent that she creates genuine emotion..."
Kenneth Turan (20 Nov 2013, )
New York Times
"It’s largely satisfying as far as screen adventures go, and comes fully loaded with special effects and action scenes..."
Manohla Dargis (22 Nov 2013, )
Roger Ebert
3 stars out of 4 -- "Malone as the punk-cool Johanna provides Lawrence with a fierce foil to play against."
Susan Wloszczyna (22 Nov 2013, )
Rolling Stone
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[S]pectacular in every sense of the word. For extra pow, see it in IMAX. It's also darker, deeper and more dangerously subversive."
Peter Travers (15 Nov 2013, )
Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he real standout is Philip Seymour Hoffman’s gamemaker; finally giving Lawrence a decent sparring partner."
Paul Bradshaw (12 Nov 2013, )
USA Today
"[T]he sequel to last year's HUNGER GAMES is grittier and the atmosphere more brooding, which suits the increasingly dystopian theme of the stories."
Claudia Puig (20 Nov 2013, )
Variety
"[H]elmer Lawrence and his team have calibrated the entire experience for maximum engagement."
Peter Debruge (12 Nov 2013, )
Wall Street Journal
"Philip Seymour Hoffman, as the new gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee, takes treachery to intriguing levels of complexity."
(20 Nov 2013, )
