The games are over, and now, Katniss finds herself in District 13 watching the love of her life wrestle his real and unreal thoughts, which were a result of torture. The Capital still remained in control of Panem, and Katniss was the face of District 13’s rebellion. With danger staring at her and those she loved from all angles, Katniss had to be the hero she never dreamed of at the beginning of the series.
With stars like Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Elizabeth Banks, Willow Smith, and many more, the films have definitely developed over time. The actor chemistry was more and more obvious, and I found myself lost in the actors’ emotions. Also, a quick word about Jennifer Lawrence: she’s the Meryl Streep of my generation of movie-goers without a doubt in my mind.
While I believe the film was well-made and extremely well-acted, I did find myself slightly bored at times, which I know is going to make some people’s jaws drop. Of course, the plot of this film was bound to be slower considering there were no violent games. However, I do think that there were some parts of the film that could have been cut down to make the sequence a little more exciting for the audience. There was a lot of sitting around and talking, and if my memory serves, the final book in Suzanne Collins’s trilogy was not boring.
That said, this film ripped everyone’s hearts out, and that’s a fact. Whether you were “Team Gale” or “Team Peeta” throughout the series, there were plenty of moments that made you gape. Also, in case you weren’t aware, a lot of characters ended up as Capital carnage by the end of the concluding movie. Without spoiling any of the cinematic moments that you should experience on your own, I will say that many tears were shed with some of the character goodbyes forced on me.
All in all, Mockingjay Part 2 was a successful conclusion although it had some slow parts. The combination of masterful acting, heart-stopping suspense, stomach-dropping emotion, and just fantastic production did the beloved book series justice. I believe that Hunger Games fans everywhere are satisfied with how the story was put to rest. Happy kommenting :)
