Unavoidable - like the plague - not a good thing.
***I think this contains spoilers*** Is it just me who didn't think this film was better than the first? All the scenes were drawn out and there were so many stupid and unimportant scenes slotted in. (Referencing the 'favourite colour' scene.)

Despite the fact everything was explained so a twelve year old could understand. Not only did it pretty much copy the first film. It started with Gale and Katniss hunting, like the first. All of it was a cliché and barely anything unpredictable. It's a shame that Jennifer Lawrence is incapable of making her role good. Just plain good. Nope, she's too bad an actress for that. After seeing this film, I doubt I will ever go to see another 'Jennifer Lawrence' film again unless my friends drag me to it. Save your money, do NOT spend your money on this, you will regret it. It's an awful film which contains: Clichés Plot holes the size of the state of Texas Ignored subplots Flat, boring characters Unrealistic ideas (I don't CARE if it's the future, some of the stuff is just plain stupid) Lack of acting skills. Only Phillip (R.I.P) could really do some decent acting. Even then, it was ONLY decent. Phillip was a brilliant actor, he let himself down in this film by not giving the best performance, but oh well. Finally, the most horrible thing of all: Overall. If I could rate this film, it would not even get 6 on IMDb. It'd get less than Disaster Movie, at least 1.2 stars. Do not see this film, unless of the age 12-14. If you're older, it's not a good idea. The film is not suitable for you. Honestly, the plot devices and conveniences are like they've been written by a (profanity removal) 12 year old. I feel as if the director didn't make this or his inner 12 year old allowed the script. I have no clue how Jennifer accepted the stupid childish ramble in her lines. Yes, the lines are all childish ramble. Nothing deep or clever placed into the script. It's effortless, but it is not well written. Jennifer Lawrence seriously needs to learn to pick appropriate roles. She's not a bad actress, but this is making me think she is.

I'm not sure if the film is so bad because the books weren't great, but even so, this film should have been written properly to make sure the script made sense. If you want a good film... watch The Lego Movie, you'll enjoy it way more than this and so will your children.
A ham-fisted carbon copy of the original BATTLE ROYALE II
I was actually one of the very few people who was excited about this movie. BATTLE ROYALE II(the original) remains to be one of my favorite films of all time. The philosophical messages, the Mise en scène, and the acting, they all came together beautifully. An American remake, created by the virtually unknown director Francis Lawrence made me feel as though this film had a lot of promise, and I was severely disappointed.

The first act of BATTLE ROYALE II had an immensely shocking ending with a purpose, the shocking ending was what made me and hundreds to thousands of other audience members alike with a face of shock and disgust as the credits roll. The remake attempted to up the scale without any purpose, and still managed to be the exact opposite of shocking.

All I'm gonna say is that it has something to do with R-rated content. The first act of BATTLE ROYALE II had a purpose for it's shocking conclusion, while the remake just kept trying to up the scale clumsily and ended up falling flat on it's face. The remake also extended the beginning, it showed more light to the protagonist and actually got us to hate the guy. BATTLE ROYALE II showed some light but the protagonist was still somewhat likable, at least compared to the remake.

The fascinating thing about the BATTLE ROYALE II is that you actually like the characters and you feel disoriented just like they do about being trapped inside a clock-shaped battle arena.

The remake was honestly just trying way too hard to be like the original rather than being it's own film and that's why it failed. I would actually recommend avoiding it if you're an aspiring filmmaker, purely for the shots that are made(The shots were ham-fisted. I have to say that). However as for story, acting, and as a movie as a whole? It was pretty bad.
Honestly? Whats Up With thw BATTLE ROYALE 2 Ripoffs
When I watched this movie, many thoughts came to my mind, one particular was life is too short, so I stood up and walked out the cinema. After all, I had already seen this film when it was called "Mr. India" (1987) What is the point of re-making this movie? The cast is awful, The scenery is dreary, and there is no plot in this movie. Please do not say this movie is great, as the directors have only substituted one line in the whole screenplay: the title page. They have changed "Battle Royale" into "The Hunger Games".

Besides this, like all science fiction movies produced by America, such as Spider Man, super man, bat man etc. These movies show the American man as a superhero man. He always appears as the undefeated man. I believe that these movies have addressed a political message for the interest of America. The message is to intimidate its enemies. The message has become insisting especially having failed in its war on Iraq. America finds no any other alternative way to intimidate the world but by producing such ridiculous fiction movies. I believe that such movies only find success in the States. Watching such fiction movies and seeing that his dreams come true the American man feels satisfied.
More BATTLE ROYALE 2 ripoffs from a dying Hollywood.
Spoilers within: This one had pretty nice CGI, but only one character had any meat, Jennifer, whom was based on Shuya from BR2, though in this, she was usually sad or concerned or confused, but down, down, down. There are many wonderful actors in this from Phil to Natalie Dormer to Julianne to the first Hawkeye Pierce to Woody to Tucci to Liz, but none of them had much to do, and did it with a mediocre script that they don't seem to care is an abject RIPOFF. I even kept falling asleep with this slow pace, reminiscent of a soap opera's snail's pace. It seems this is part three of a four-part trilogy, speaking of oddities, and it is just a book turned around into mediocre movies. Haven't read the book, but can't wait for the predictable fourth installment, in which Katniss will surely beat Snow and his henchmen with sheer force of goodness and steely will. I'm getting ready to yawn and nod off as I write. With any luck, I won't go to Mockingjay Part 2.
They fell short, way short. I was very bored, laughed a bit, that was it.
Let me say before I review this movie, that I did not read the books. I went into this movie as a moviegoer hoping that I would be pleased by the films adaptation onto the big screen. I loved the first movie, it was great and well done, but I am highly disappointed by this sequel. Of course, the acting was great, but the movie itself, was very boring and stretched out. I could care less if it is like the book or not, since I did not read. It had some funny parts in this movie but that was the only thing that caught my eye. There is pretty much 40-50 useless minutes at the beginning of the film before they even start the games. They use cheesiness throughout the film which makes it laughable and unbearable. Don't get me wrong, I went into this film expecting very highly of the film and was very disappointed. I went in believe what the "fan girls" of the movie said. They said it was "the best movie ever!!" or "very awesome!". Overall, don't waste your money seeing it in theaters. Wait until you can rent it at home or even watch it on television. It is not a must see movie as people suggest. Also, I only paid 3 dollars for my movie ticket to see this, so that is saying something. I probably won't even buy this on Blu-Ray even though I have the first one on a three disc special edition Blu-Ray.
Difficult as it May Seem...Worse than the First
It Really is Hard to Imagine Anyone but an Eight Year Old Girl (apologies to eight year old Girls) Deriving much Entertainment from this Movie, or the Franchise. It is so Dumbed Down, Illiterate, and Dull that it Never Creates any Sparks, let alone Catches Fire.

From the Story that is All Surface about Totalitarianism and Fascism, to the Shallowness of the Whole and God-Awful Gaudy Costuming to the One-Dimensional Characters, Anyone Seeking Anything of Substance Here, will Discover Nothing, Except in the Most Superficial Display.

The Repression and Starvation are Shown as Dirty Faces and Tattered Clothes with the Downtrodden Insights Reduced to Staring Sunken Faces. Nothing is Ever Contemplated or Explored. This Thing is so Excruciatingly Shallow and Lightweight it can't even Manage to Sink from its own Excesses.

The Final Bit, the Actual Games, are so Recycled and Unimaginative as to Boggle the Bean. The Grand Finale has Blood Rain, Diseased Fog, a Spinning Clock, and for the Big Bang...Baboons.

This is what Passes as Epic Entertainment and Large Scale, Teen Friendly, Rah-Rah these Days. Wispy, Unengaging, Bland, and Embarrassing this is one of those Blockbusters that in Ten Years will hardly get more than a Casual Glance and that Only to See what all the Fuss was about. Good Question.
a colossal disappointment
What a colossal disappointment.

While the first "Hunger Games" movie was successful in so many ways -- fine acting, suspense, moving character development, dramatic action, and provocative thematic material -- this sequel advanced on none of those successes. It was a true yawner. Actually remarkable for its lack of originality. Only in the final moments of the film was their even a suggestion that a new idea might be introduced. And then only to end abruptly in cliff hanger.

Only a die-hard sucker will be inclined to see the third film in the series after the disappointing experience of sitting through this one. This is a movie that will leave you angry and wanting to demand your money back.
Where do I begin? Of course the length. It's just ridiculously long, without anything that would make the viewer interested in, without principles or a cause. The main protagonist is a dumb little girl who can't even fathom her convictions, let alone hold on to them. She has a guy loving her, working in the MINES, while she's pretending not to like the parade of her and her "victorious" boyfriend from the games and all the posh show-off that happens. When the guy opens up to her and shows her that more than *she* matters, and the fact that he won't just run off with her, while all the rest stay in misery, all she can do is just leave. Then there's the other (long) part of the movie where she just starts to create this whole different relationship, while her lover is left behind the screen. What sort of morality is this movie trying to portray? Is this what the western world is moving towards to? Just awful.
Remake (particularly bad one) of Japanese Battle Royale 2
Hollywood should NEVER try to be as ambitious to tackle films like Battle Royale 2. American morality eventually gets in the way. Such attempts are cringeworthy. Do not bother watching Hunger Games 2 unless you like talentless 'eye candy' type films. Watch the original instead. What is it with Hollywood anyway? They shamelessly copy from oriental cinema/Bollywood and try to pass it off as their own. You can't help but feel disappointed. It was a massacre of the cultish Battle Royale 2. You have to have a strong stomach to stomach some of the things that happen in Battle Royale. Its like Bollywood was sugar coating the themes in Battle Royale and what do you end up with? A version which your granny can watch with you without feeling too offended. If that was the case then Hunger Games should never have been made. Well it shouldn't have!
holly abomination batman
This is an appalling film, my wife suggested it, she was quite embarrassed by 60 minutes at putting me through something so inhuman and by the time they fought monkeys she was positively apologetic, do yourself a favor if you want a chick flick watch Bridget Jones or something and if you want a good film in the society gone mad survival genre watch battle royale. Or if you have no choice but to watch Hunger Games Catching Fire and you are not a 12 year old girl, do yourself a favor and set yourself on fire before hand, the pain of healing burns will at least distract you from this piece of over budgeted under written turd.
