As the war of Panem escalates to the destruction of other districts, Katniss Everdeen, the reluctant leader of the rebellion, must bring together an army against President Snow, while all she holds dear hangs in the balance.
When their new next-door neighbors turn out to be a sorority even more debaucherous than the fraternity previously living there, Mac and Kelly team with their former enemy, Teddy, to bring the girls down.
Katniss Everdeen voluntarily takes her younger sister's place in the Hunger Games: a televised competition in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to fight to the death.
One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public's adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles, The Four Horsemen resurface for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate. The man behind their vanishing act is none other than Walter Mabry, a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet. Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all. Written by
This was absolutely atrocious. I really liked the first one so I went to see this as soon as possible hoping for more but it seems like they doubled down on all the things people hated about the first movie. The magic tricks were much more CG heavy, the story-line was absurd and confusing, and worst of all the tone of the film was completely different. I love Lizzy Caplan but everything about her in this movie I hated. Everything about her character enforced the idea that we were no longer in a realistic movie and everything became slapstick and silly. The first movie had a "real world" feel. As soon as Woody Harrelson's 'Brother' appeared I pretty much checked out. I cant overstate how much I hated this.
