Synopsis

After winning the Hunger Games, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) return home to get ready to go on a Victory Tour of all 12 Districts. Before the tour, President Snow (Donald Sutherland) pays Katniss a visit, warning her that he knows she's faking her love for Peeta.

During the tour, the districts begin to rebel against the Capitol, prompting Snow to decide that there will be another Hunger Games, this time to include two previous winners from each district, hoping that Katniss will be killed.

As the only female winner from District 12, Katniss is chosen, but when Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson) is selected as the male contestant, Peeta volunteers. As they get ready for games, Hamish advises Katniss and Peeta to team up with some of the other 24 participants if they want a chance of surviving.

  • 1 star "The original was just bad, but this over=the-top sequel, with its preposterous storyline and overwrought performances (especially Lawrence's) is a surefire camp classic in the making."
  • 1 star "It was a disaster. Too long, no action at all. Love plot was crap and too long, no hunger games at all in this episone. Ending was so lame. Movie about spoiled girl that tend to sulk half of the movie. One minute she's tough, other time she's all mushy and crying like a little baby. Waste of time!"
