Number of Times Seen – 1 (20 Jan 2014)
Brief Synopsis – The continuing adventures of Katniss Everdeen as the President targets her due to her opposition to the yearly Hunger Games.
My Take on it – I actually enjoyed this one more than the original one because I understood the characters and the motivations much better.
The poster above says it all.
From a little spark, a revolution can begin and we see how Katniss is able to use her celebrity to try and light that spark.
Some of the new (and old) characters are quite memorable and the plot moves along very well.
I was disappointed how the movie ends because it just stops in the middle and has a cliffhanger that we now all need to wait another year to see it continued.
I wasn’t expecting that and I guess I wish I had read the books so that I wouldn’t have been caught as much by surprise.
The special effects here once again are superb and I once again enjoyed the merging of futuristic technology with weapons and fighting tactics from the middle ages, in a word, their world is done amazingly.
Bottom Line – Very good movie. Better than the first, but was disappointed at the cliffhanger. It will hopefully be fully realized once the next two movies are out. Recommended!
Rating – Globe Worthy
