The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2

The revolution against the autocratic Capitol hits its boiling point in the second half of this adaptation of Suzanne Collins’ final Hunger Games book. Director Francis Lawrence returns from Catching Fire and Mockingjay - Part 1.

Picking up hot on the heels of Mockingjay - Part 1, this sequel follows Katniss Everdeen on a mission to the heart of the Capitol as she sets of to assassinate President Snow and bring Panem's brutal civil war to a swift end. Moving through the outskirts of the city with a team of familiar faces including Peeta, Gale, and Finnick, they find it boobytrapped with thousands of the most the deadliest devices Snow's Gamemakers could come up with. Pursued by peacekeepers and even more vicious assailants, every step could be the last for Katniss and her friends.

The USP of Susanna Collins' YA franchise has always been – duh – the actual games. Outside the arena, the books are mostly awful, something the films, though expertly made, have to constantly overcome. Mockingjay – Part One, also directed by Francis Lawrence, took place entirely in war-torn Panem, and suffered accordingly, though its dying-fall ending was oddly beautiful.

We benefit from the fact that the film has been given room to breathe, which allows for subtle character moments...and the gradual building of suspense...

Jennifer Lawrence shines once again in a fitting send-off for cinema’s best YA franchise.

It’s a bold statement about the unforgiving nature of war, unashamedly political in its motives and quietly devastating in its emotional effect.

A curious mess, starting off painfully slowly, then rushing when it really matters.

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.

Its epic sweep, grand designs and unyielding central performance make this a compelling finale.
