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.

Movie Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, Fails on Every Level. Michelle’s Review

I have a weird history with The Hunger Games franchise. While I liked the first film well enough, I walked out at about the hour mark, not once but 3 times. I enjoyed the story, characters and the build up but the shaky cam literally made me sick. Lionsgate read my review and put me on double secret probation. It’s not my fault the movie sucked, get a thicker skin. I liked the 2nd one well enough, but it felt like a pointless rehash of the first one.

Mockingjay Part 1 seemed to be treading water and now we have Mockingjay Part 2. The ship has finally sunk in a slow, torturous 2 hours + slog. One of the worst franchise ending films I’ve ever seen. A four year, nearly 9-hour journey and THIS is what it all amounted to? Are you kidding me? No really, is this some sort of joke on the movie going public?
