    Just everything they are talking about in the first 15-20min is going way over my head.

    Do you mean Katniss? He disliked her because she stood up to the Capitol and won. In the 12 districts the poorer ones saw her fight against them and it brought up their morale so they started rioting against the Capitol.

    What do you want to know?
    I haven't read the books and understood.. Albeit it was was one those movies where you couldn't have someone talking to you at the time... Had to concentrate!

    OP are you talking about watching the second movie in the series before you watched the first?

    Because at the end of the first movie when her and peta threatened to eat the berries instead of kill each other they basically defied the capitol, the games are meant to be the ultimate thing to win yet by showing they would rather die than kill each other they forced the gamemaker to change the rules to stop them.

    Which is why snow wanted katniss to show she did it out of love rather than a show of defiance, to diffuse the uprising in the districts.

    (Oh and I dont think you need to read the books to understand but I did find myself explaining some parts to my husband who hasnt read the books, he would have understood without it, but it made is clearer for him.)

    Thanks all.

    VP- Silly me started watching part 2 before part 1 (I had no idea). That is why I started this thread because I was so confused. It wasn't until my mum told me I was watching part 2.
    So now I have seen part 1 (LOVED IT) and now I am in the middle of part 2. I was just curious as to why Katniss was hated so much. I had a feeling why, just need it explained better.
