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.

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.

A perfect example of why this 'splitting the last book into 2 parts' fad is just a way to grab extra money from movie goer's hands. Many dialogue scenes not only feel rushed and sloppy, but also familiar. I feel like I've seen Peeta and Gale talk about how amazing Katniss is and how she is only going to be able to end up with one and blah blah blah. I...

This movie was very good but it felt like it wasn't needed. It did conclude the series very well and was all tied off neatly. It was very disappointing at the lack of detail on the main character deaths, there wasn't too much emotion shown by surrounding characters especially the later death which was sorta blown over (oops) like 'okay they died, NEXT'....

For a series that was a game changer for bring YA fiction to the screens something just didn't really work with this last installment. The focus seemed to be in the wrong parts? Characters deaths weren't given the weight they deserved and it just felt a bit naff.

Why bother? This could all have been resolved in part one.

I just went to see the movie a second time and enjoyed it as much as the first time. I am very glad it was true to the book. I read the books all in one go and could not put them down so the way this film was portrayed just suited me down to the ground!

Much better than Mockingjay: Part 1, but not nearly as good as the first two films. The middle section is exciting but both the beginning and end let it down. I was particularly disappointed that they didn't correctly capture the tone of the end of the book. Really, this should never have been split into two movies.

A thoroughly entertaining if not drawn out finale of the Hunger Games saga. Solid performances from Lawrence (although I find she comes across quite disingenuous when she gets emotional - she gets so over the top hysterical) and the rest of the supporting cast. Lump in the throat seeing Philip Seymour Hoffman one last time.
