Reviews:
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "[S]pectacular in every sense of the word. For extra pow, see it in IMAX. It's also darker, deeper and more dangerously subversive." - 11/15/2013 Rolling Stone


4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he real standout is Philip Seymour Hoffman’s gamemaker; finally giving Lawrence a decent sparring partner." - 11/12/2013 Total Film


"[H]elmer Lawrence and his team have calibrated the entire experience for maximum engagement." - 11/12/2013 Variety


"[T]he sequel to last year's HUNGER GAMES is grittier and the atmosphere more brooding, which suits the increasingly dystopian theme of the stories." - 11/20/2013 USA Today


"Philip Seymour Hoffman, as the new gamemaker Plutarch Heavensbee, takes treachery to intriguing levels of complexity." - 11/20/2013 Wall Street Journal


"Lawrence has clearly taken this role very much to heart, throwing herself into it to such an extent that she creates genuine emotion..." - 11/20/2013 Los Angeles Times


"It’s largely satisfying as far as screen adventures go, and comes fully loaded with special effects and action scenes..." - 11/22/2013 New York Times


"[I]t's an improvement on the last go around: Lawrence stages the violence with less skittishness and more precision, and the film keeps throwing new obstacles -- a deadly fog, a flock of ominously screaming birds -- at its weary combatants." -- Grade: B - 11/19/2013 A.V. Club


"Jennifer Lawrence is one of our best young actresses, and she shines as the stubborn, courageous, vulnerable and heroic Katniss." - 11/18/2013 Chicago Sun-Times


"Katniss has become a star, a lightning-rod symbol of the early stirrings of a people's rebellion....Lawrence plays her as a riveting icon of girl power..." -- Grade: B - 11/26/2013 Entertainment Weekly


3 stars out of 4 -- "Malone as the punk-cool Johanna provides Lawrence with a fierce foil to play against." - 11/22/2013 Roger Ebert
