I had already watched the first movie, and read the book a few times, so I knew what to expect, but PL, who has not watched nor read it, was quite ok with the movie, so I guess it is not too bad.
It is really for Hunger Games fans (or Battle Royale) because the concept is very similar. There was not as much bloodshed, but Mags dying really got me weeping.
The 2hr plus movie is a breeze to sit through, and I was not ready to leave the seat despite the ending of the show (even though I needed to piss badly). The ending of the show was just to abrupt for me to accept it.
How can that be the ending?!!!
Come on! Get the next one out quick!!
P.S: I think Katniss looks fatter in this movie than the previous one. She probably got fat sitting in the Victors' village and consuming more calories than she did when she had to hunt for food and wasn't so rich. Hah.
See! I can be a zai hunter too! =P
