The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2
Director: Francis Lawrence
Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth
The thrilling saga is now at an end, but it went out in a spectacular explosion (literally and figuratively). As an avid reader of The Hunger Games trilogy, I adored the way Francis Lawrence portrayed the epic finale. If you want to feel the feels, this movie hits you right in the sensitivity spot. SO BRING TISSUES AND SUPPORTIVE FRIENDS. (Guys, I cried within the first 15 minutes of this movie.) Whether you are for Team Peeta, Team Gale, or even Team Finnick, this movie will do you justice. In comparison to the book, this adaptation was true to Suzanne Collins work. It had all of the love, betrayal, and action that was needed to make this a successful finale to this series.
Mockingjay part 2 picks up exactly where part one left off. (Convenient right?) The war between the rebels and the capital is as strong as ever, and Katniss reluctantly has to lead the rebel army. All the while, she is also fighting the ongoing battle of her love interest; Peeta Mallark, who is completely brainwashed, or Gale Hawthorne, the war hungry power house.
I definitely recommend this movie (and the whole saga) for families and cinema fans everywhere. This movie is a Must-See and is definitely worth every cent.
