Her change of heart into tender young-love does not come off as believable in scenes between Catnis and Peta since her heart belongs to someone else. She is too strong and he appears weak and a bit pathetic in comparison.

Though there's brief sexual material in it that disturbed me for a minute,I still liked the movie because the story was interesting,and Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson do OUTSTANDING jobs as Katniss Everdeen and Petta Mellark!!! (Romance story is so awesome!!!)

It I a very intriguing story. Does contain some brief sexual material. Worth a watch.

I recommend this movie series to adults. The Mockingjay is the main character. She is a teenager from a poor village. This is a love story. The script is about a dictatorship having an abundance of food while the poor are starving. The government oppresses the poor. Lots of violence happens. There is subtle sexual scenes. This movie is not good for children. For adults, it will be fast moving with lots of action. The script is the struggle for the poor to survive. The poor abused stand up for their rights. The Mockingjay is their beacon of courage to ask for change and dare to demand respect.

Pretty good. Better than the first one. Good enough I'll check out the last two.
Still quietly disturbing.

_ Again, generally well acted and portrayed story.

_ But I did think the mechanical claw, lowered from a hovercraft used by the just constituted rebels to rescue one of the dazed contestants, could very well have chopped off one of his areas - arms, legs, a head! Or indeed, inflicted GBH by multiple impaling, should have said contestant not been lying level on perfectly flat ground!

_ Again, the rim mounted horizontal lift fan was making an excessively loud and very helicopterish rotor noise.

_ I've done a summary, that doesn't include the closing chapter.

__ President Snow, keen to get rid of some of the more troublesome Hunger Games Victors (and thereby, the restless, rebelliousness permeating in the districts), declares a match between the victors. In district 12, Katniss, Peeta and Haymitch, await the draw. Effy Trinket puts on a brave face, made out to be reaching into a bowl (that actually wasn't there) to reach the single piece of paper with the one name on it. Katniss. Haymitch name came out of the guys bowl, was called but Peeta volunteered, replacing him. Against Haymitch and Katniss agreement.

_ A train ride around the districts, on which Katniss catches glimpses of rioting, being watched for some reason on TV by Rose's Peacekeepers, also on the train. The Peacekeepers had left their door open, also for some reason. Unrest is also evident in the districts. First stop, they sympathized for the family of dead Contestant 7. Old man is lead up front and shot by Peacemakers, for making Mocking Jay sign. A Mocking Jay symbol has been painted on the wall of the train tunnel. They pass (12?) Peacemaker trucks, either side of tracks and the scenic vistas are replaced by several lines of VERY mean looking security fences. Next stop, a woman shouts a loud protest (about food shortages?). At one stop, there are no people to welcome them, only masses of Peacemakers, causing Effy to complain "Where are the crowds"? Perhaps it was this slight, that had her think about crossing to the rebels? Into the Capitol. Contestants Hall. Haymitch suggests allies. Katniss suggests Elderly mute volunteer, who had agreed to show her how to make a fishing lure. Peeta glances heavenward. Then to a public party. Peeta declines more food as full. Woman offers him drink of blue fluid - to make him throw up, return to eating. He latter complains starving in districts, while Capitol folk (waste food). They parade, before the masses and TV cameras.

_ Watching this on TV, President Rose's granddaughter expresses the wish that she will be as in love as Peeta and Katniss. Rose expression turns unreadable, he then assures her she will be. He later discusses killing all of the contestants. A contestants dress, upon the wearer doing a spin, flares up and changes color and to bird feathers. Later, as the wearer is locked in the tube and transported to arena, 4 Peacemakers arrived and beat up the dress's creator. In the arena, it becomes apparent that a group have signed up some of the other contestants - watch for the gold bracelet! It is unclear if this is all part of a long run plan, to beat the Regime on TV, or if a last minute thing. That Katniss and co WEREN'T BRIEFED - suggests last minute! On several occasions, another contestant urges "Remember who the real enemy is".

I'll cease my summary, at this point.

The nation of Panem, formed from a post-apocalyptic North America, is a country that consists of a wealthy Capitol region surrounded by 12 poorer districts. Early in its history, a rebellion led by a 13th district against the Capitol resulted in its destruction and the creation of an annual televised event known as the Hunger Games. In punishment, and as a reminder of the power and grace of the Capitol, each district must yield one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 through a lottery system to participate in the games. The 'tributes' are chosen during the annual Reaping and are forced to fight to the death, leaving only one survivor to claim victory.

When 16-year-old Katniss's young sister, Prim, is selected as District 12's female representative, Katniss volunteers to take her place. She and her male counterpart Peeta, are pitted against bigger, stronger representatives, some of whom have trained for this their whole lives. , she sees it as a death sentence. But Katniss has been close to death before. For her, survival is second nature. (less)
