Hollywood's reigning teenage-wasteland franchise brings the darkness, spiraling the story into some new, interesting and heavy territory. It's a war picture, basically, with Jennifer Lawrence's reluctant heroine Katniss Everdeen assuming the mantle of armed resistance leader. In the troubled empire of Panem, the districts are on the eve of full revolt against the corrupt Capitol, and there will be blood. The film assumes familiarity with the series back story and makes a fairly radical change of trajectory. Gone are the colorful grotesques of media and reality TV—no more Inspector Gadget arena battles or bread-and-circuses Capitol parades. Instead we get scenes of bloody field hospitals, suicide bombers, remote aerial strikes and televised executions. It's the darkest and the deepest of the Hunger Games movies so far, even if it is just half a story.
