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.
Katniss Everdeen is in District 13 after she shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta and a nation moved by her courage.
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

The remote controlled camera is visible in the scene where the truck full of the horsemen is pulling into the garage. Look as the camera pans down and we see the top of the van. The camera looks like a box attached to some poles. See more »
Chase! As you stare into my eyes, you will find that you want to sleep!
[Chase's head slumps forward]
When you wake, you will beg for Merrritt's forgiveness and realize that you will never be half the man he is.
[Jack wakes Chase with a slap]
Merritt, I am so, so very, very sorry about how pathetic your pupil is. Hey, a little hint on your technique of surprise. It lacks that all-essential little element of surprise!

Well,I had mixed feelings about the first NYSM.It had its fair share of thrills and flaws.But the movie left space open for a sequel,and here it is.This time,Walter Mabry,a tech magnate,recruits the Horsemen into pulling of their most impossible heist yet.Daniel Radcliffe does justice to his role of the above mentioned tech magnate.The entire cast returns,excluding Isla Fisher,who is replaced by Lizzy Caplan.She is good enough to replace Fisher.
Just like the predecessor,the movie's ending contains a lot of explanations as to how they did what they were told to do.This movie has a lot of thrills and some questions are yet again left unanswered,but this time it is forgivable.It does have you guessing a lot,and the characters are likable.The ending does seem a bit implausible,and that us one of the biggest flaws in the film.
Overall a decent thriller with a nice cast.I liked it better than the first one,and hopefully the next sequel coming toward us will improve on this one.
