    Most astonishingly, with the franchise's powerful climax, Lawrence has managed to align her parallel Hollywood lives and reinvent the prestigious popcorn flick, a crowd-pleaser with intelligent class.

    In the genuinely shocking and surprising third act, it wades deep into the moral shades of grey at the story's core and comes out the other side with no easy solution.

    The final film adaptation of Suzanne Collins’s dystopian Hunger Games YA novels, Mockingjay — Part 2, is a potent antiwar saga: bleak, savage, and very modern in the depiction of an unholy union between political manipulation and showbiz.

    This concluding chapter is a solid culmination of a franchise that has had its ups and downs. Lawrence’s superb performance grounds the film, as she oscillates between badass archer and increasingly disenfranchised political pawn, and mercifully the late Hoffman’s CGI scenes are kept to a minimum.

    If Mockingjay - Part 1 was walkier and talkier than its forerunners, Part 2 is pretty much all action - and lesser for it.

    This is a dish that has been prepared over a low heat for a long time, which makes for some pretty slow-going early on.

    Mockingjay II is a bare bones finale — a tedious two hours in which nothing at all happens, with the briefest of breaks for a zombie chase and attack and a half-hearted bit of sci-fi combat.

It has all the brooding themes from the novel while adding components that create an even deeper, more connected story line. I could not think of a better way to end the era of The Hunger Games. Katniss Everdeen and the others have finally come full circle.
    I believe if they were to make more movies, most fans and other slightly curious observers would love to witness Haymitch Abernathy as he takes on 47 other tributes in his own game during the 2nd quarter quell.

Much unlike the first part of the 'mocknigjay'The mocknigjay part 2 is the epic finale and the final instalment of the Hunger Games series. Much unlike the first part of the 'mocknigjay' it was full of action and suspense. As her and her closest friends and allies go to the Capitol to defeat the Autocratic President Snow they lose many main characters which are vital to the storyline. The 'pods' or minefield traps are great. Mutts, bubbling tar, machine guns, underground zombies, bombs, and armies of peacekeepers threaten them along the way. The first half an hour or so of the movie is going to district two to
    persuade the people to join the rebels and fight against the capitol. It slowly gets better and although some scenes are sad and upsetting overall it is great The rating is PG-13 but should be pg. It is full of great messages about war and post Apocalyptic worlds. I would give this a ten out of ten and is definitely the best of the Hunger games series.
    NEGATIVES
    There is some kissing that could be cut from the movie
    the Peeta Gale and Katniss situation is quite boring

This is a thoroughly well crafted film, with beautiful cinematography, gripping storyline and sumptuous costumes. The tension is held with precision, and those who have read the books will not be disappointed with the manner in which the plot unfolds. The performances are excellent and it's one of the few times I can say I'm happy with the decision to split the narrative across two films, as this allowed the director to dedicate the appropriate time and detail to this much anticipated resolution, and I'm happy to say it was a beautifully executed finale that is both thrilling and satisfying in equal measure. 9.23/10 Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. By now, I have seen every book and watched every movie of the series. But my enthusiasm has gradually decreased with each installment. Reaching the fourth movie, I saw it solely because I had seen and read everything else. Of course Mockingjay Part 2 was going to be a marketing gimmick. I don't even know at this point if it followed the book, and I don't even care.

    I can't say I would even call myself a fan of The Hunger Games, but it had potential – at one point. There are moments of brilliance that were begging to be brought out, like the killing of President Coin, yet I was left feeling like it didn't really matter. This dystopian world could have ben powerful and gripped our hearts, but the movie lost its way and fell into the typical trap of the love triangle. Thank god for Phillip Seymour-Hoffman. If it weren't for his performance shining through in a select few moments, I would be a little more down overall. Still breaks my heart that we don't see more of his role.

    I think Jennifer Lawrence tried her best to make this last glimpse of the franchise a success, but what could she do? She's aged several years since the release of the first movie, as has her audience – including myself. Stretching out the story for four years is bound to lose the originality and Mockingjay is no exception. We're different people and we've grown apart.
