Average User Score: 6.9Dec 14, 2015This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. I finally saw The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 and I wasn't disappointed. As someone who hasn't read the books but tends to like action movies and is a Jennifer Lawrence fan the movie was definitely worth seeing; and quite frankly was one of the better films of 2015. Although it is Lawrence's movie the ensemble is great ( Donald Sutherland, Julianne Moore, and Sam Claflin were all terrific; and though I was disappointed in how brief they were in the movie Woody Harrelson, Jena Malone and Elizabeth Banks also deserve kudos for doing the most with what they were given). It was nice to see Liam Hensworth grow throughout the film series. Josh Hutcherson gave a standout performance at the end of Mockingjay Part 1 and throughout Part 2. I also enjoyed Natalie Dormer's Cressida and Willow Shields' Prim, who was Katniss' heart from the beginning of the first film. There was something that should have been added. I would have liked to have seen the explanation in the movie as to why Joanna wasn't in combat with the rest of the gang. Joanna's meltdown during combat training would have been worth seeing. I was also bummed seeing Finnick's end; but at least he went out in dramatic fashion. I like Peeta. I like Gale, but I am a Finnick girl. I do predict bigger things coming Sam Claflin's way. Jennifer Lawrence did not fail to disappoint. I have seen some just decent action movies in my time. This was a really good one.… Expand

I didn't read comic books growing up but for those who did I can get why they would be so invested. I don't go to movies based on comic books expecting they are going to turn into academy award winning movies. The Dark Knight, and Heath Ledger, were exceptions. I saw Thor and it's sequel because they looked fun and they were. They're good popcorn movies. In a lot of movies the dialogue can come across like the actors don't know what they're doing, but not here. There's not a bad performance in this movie. Hemsworth and especially Hiddleston rise above what they are given. It was also nice to see Kat Dennings given more to do. The critics need to lighten up. They take themselves way too seriously sometimes. It would be nice if they realized that a lot of us go to the movies to just have some fun.… Expand

As far as the 2006 Superman Returns movie, Man of Steel was so much better. Henry Cavill makes a much better Superman then Brandon
Routh did and Amy Adams a much better Lois Lane. Although Man of Steel downplays the chemistry between Cavill and Adams. I saw potential in them as a screen couple, but there wasn't enough of a buildup.
to their first kiss. Hopefully the sequel.will play up more as a couple. The action was good. Somehow I felt disappointed though. Not by the acting. There was no bad acting in the movie. Everyone plays their part well. I just felt like there was something missing. Like there wasn't enough story or something. I guess I just expected more… Expand

When I heared that Hugh Jackman and Anne Hathaway were doing a movie together and that Tom Hooper who directed The King's Speech was doing it I thought how could it miss? Well Hugh, Anne and newcomer Samantha Barks aside, I had some issues with it. Russell Crowe for instance. He's a really good actor. He's just not plausible in a movie musical. While I enjoyed Helena Bonham Carter and Sasha Baren Cohens parts and thought Eddie Redmayne was adorable the rest of the film felt overstuffed. Hathaway is the best thing about the movie. Jackman is the second best thing about it.… Expand
