The Hunger Games: Mockingjay 2 Overlong But Adequate Finale!

hunger-games-mockingjay-part-2 2

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 closes out the film quadrilogy of the book trilogy. You might expect, with the final – and shortest book in the series turned into two movies because… money, that there would a lot of detail work (possibly some that wasn’t in the book’s climactic few days) and you’d be right (as Elizabeth Banks has noted in interviews, Effie Trinket was not a part of these events in the books…).

But the changes are small and, for the most part, seamless and the crux of the climactic film is that war may be fought for righteous reasons, but it is never good. In keeping with that idea, Mockingjay Part 2 is a dour, not quite dreary exercise in every respect.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 – Action, Suspense and Thinking!

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 could have gone wrong in so many ways that it’s a genuine relief to be able to say it’s infinitely better than the book – at least, so far. It’s smart and thought provoking while having considerably more action that I was expecting. In fact, it’s the best film in the series, so far.
