Synopsis
With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Claflin), and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) – Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.

A satisfying end of to the four-part trilogy. The Hunger Games bids goodbye with a three-finger salute.

Since the first movie debuted in 2012, the film adaptation of the young-adult novel by Suzanne Collins ends this November. It’s goodbye Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) for now, till the next spoof or re-adaptation surfaces. Good news for the fans who religiously followed through all the movie series for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 is a solid closure to the saga. Panem will be sorely missed. 

Picking up where last year’s Mockingjay Part 1 left off, we see Katniss recovering from the intense bruising caused by the disoriented Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson); her stand as the face of rebellion; and her mission to win the war against the Capitol and President Snow (Donald Sutherland). 

After a brief stay in District 13, Katniss, together with Gale (Liam Hemsworth), Finnick (Sam Clafin) and Peta, she leads her team of underground rebels -or rather - following orders to carry out her mission as the Mockingjay as they infiltrate the Capitol. This final instalment brings back the fierce and sassy Katniss we knew when we were first introduced to her in 2012, and that makes the film much more interesting and promising compared to the previous one.

Keeping the same grim and dark mood as its predecessor, it fits pretty well with the overall tone of the film as it pretty much feels like a war movie with sci-fi boobytraps and twisted ploys. Director Francis Lawrence definitely pulls out all the stops; in pacing and deepening the plots of its previous series for the final showdown in this film. In addition, what makes Part 2 so much better than the rest are the action sequences. For those who have not read the book, following the team of rebels becomes much more fascinating as you wouldn’t have guessed the out-of-the-world twists and tricks that the Capitol has set of Katniss and squad. The special effects and sound cues are impressive, as you would expect from the franchise.

By now, if you have not caught any of the previous three films, you might not have a clue what’s unfolding on the screen for the story has grown so complicated and full tilt that it’s better to catch up with the others before entering the cinema. If time doesn’t permit, your best bet is Google and Wikipedia. 

Despite the big question of Katniss going with the man she truly loves, you don’t get to see much of it during the heightened part of the movie, fortunately! While there are short sugary lines between the two couples, the focus still lies on the journey to victory. Also, each supporting characters are given more screen time this time around, which adds to the parting nature of the film.

While it does provide an adequate conclusion to the trilogy, some key points felt touch-and-go, such as the guessing game of the recovering psychotic Peeta, and Primrose Everdeen - which we shall not spoil it for you. More could be done for other key characters like Elizabeth Banks’ Effie Trinket, Woody Harrelson’s Haymitch and Jena Malone’s Johanna Mason. 

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 doesn’t disappoint in giving fans a closure to the franchise - saving the best for last.
