After receiving medical attention Katniss is tasked with continuing as the symbolic leader of the rebellion against the Capitol, and joins a group of old friends who have the job of following the front line while being filmed for propoganda purposes, but their progress towards the centre is impeded by booby traps, which result in the death of their commander forcing her to reveal her secret task, that of assassinating President Snow.
|Content||Meetings take place in the underground headquarters of the rebellion; the group make progress through the city, mostly underground as their numbers are reduced by booby traps, mutants and the president’s soldiers. Some impressive set pieces amongst the imposing buildings of the Capitol. So a number of fire fights with associated explosions but no nudity, sex, drinking, drug taking or smoking.|

|A View||I am not really enthusiastic about YA movies, so there’s one reason why I did not like this much, and secondly you would have to have seen the first part in order to appreciate this, felt by some to have been a bit of a con. Then for some reason I don’t really like the name “Katniss”. Don’t ask me why, but maybe it is just a bit clever as are the names of the other people. That beign said, if it had been just a bit more fun I might have forgiven them. So not a watch unless you have seen the first part.|
