This has taken far too long to review but here we are. I really liked this film and when I first heard of it I didn’t care, love a pleasant surprise. Its action packed, funny, got a great voice cast, and the story is quite touching, very much to my surprise. The visuals in this are great, I really thought the mix of Stop-motion and CGI was very impressive; I was often unable to see the difference in the film. The characters are either really funny or are great character parodies. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

Nearly didn’t see this film but luckily for you readers I did and do not regret it at all. A really good, entertaining film, November and December are looking like a great couple of cinema months. The first Hunger Games wasn’t all that great, it had potential and I did like some of it but it did miss the mark a bit. This film does wonders seeing its potential and going for it, changing directors seem to work for sequels this year. It’s a more thrilling story, it’s a well-paced and smartly presented film and if you are a fan apparently it’s more loyal to the book. It’s just winning on all fronts, or it’s as good as Caesars teeth are white. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.
“You fought very had in the Games, Miss Everdeen. But they were games. Would you like to be in a real war? Thousands of your people dead. Your loved ones….Gone.”
Haven’t done one of these for a while, but this is a pretty big one. Whilst I had my problems with the first film I certainly saw potential, just needed to fix the dialogue and pacing, also better special effects which being a sequel to a very profitable first film I am sure this will have. Before you start saying this isn’t the first trailer, it is because the first was just a long teaser. If this trailer is a true representation of the film then I like where it is going, apparently there is a new director who is responsible for this. I did ask a fan of the book series to tell me what she thought and she said this film looked more like the book from this trailer, so hopefully you fans have something to look forward to this winter. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer.
