| Killed potential and romance
First thing that ruined all sequels was romantic line. Every single part they try to make some "surprise" out of main romantic line. But one twist doesn't work twice. Either they should've done slow scenario or it was better to change motivation. BUT! Everything stays the same including plot twists. That's why pure characters were really spoiled by this. Who loves whom etc? The next minus is no background story about characters. It could be really interesting to know more about mentors or other players. Also the president and his power doesn't look strong at all. Talking about good points. I think there appeared some good seeds from first movie, I truly loved how Lawrence portrayed changes caused by Games. But in the end all the continuations are rather weak and disappointing.

Did You Know?


On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (2014) season two, episode forty-eight, "Josh Hutcherson/Tracey Ullman/Echosmith", Josh told Jimmy about an Easter egg director Francis Lawrence added to the movie. When Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) are about to cross a tunnel and face the crowd, PDL-736 is printed at the top of the tunnel's entrance. It stands for Ponce De Leon-736, an underground hip-hop club to which the cast went in Atlanta.


Gale Hawthorne: Whoa, whoa. Easy. Saw some turkeys on the way here. Crossed right in front of me like I wasn't even there.
Katniss Everdeen: How rude of them.
Gale Hawthorne: That's what happens. You spend six days a week working in the mines and stupid birds start to think they own these woods.
Gale Hawthorne: ...
Katniss Everdeen: ...


At the beginning of the games, all tributes are elevated from their tubes to be standing on little platforms supposedly placed equally n a circle in the water between the spikes leading from the cornucopia. But when the camera follows Catniss's view, tributes are only visible to her right, while none can be seen in the segments behind the cornucopia.

Crazy Credits

The film's title doesn't appear until the start of the closing credits. As such, this is the only Hunger Games movie where the title of the movie does not appear at the beginning of the film.

Alternate Versions

Blu-ray Disc versions of the film feature the IMAX scenes in a taller aspect ratio, thus staying more true to the original theatrical exhibition, similar to what was done with the Blu-ray releases for the Christopher Nolan Batman movies.
