    The final installment of Suzanne Collins’ wildly popular YA trilogy does not linger on past events, so if you have any confusion, you’d best do your homework. Opening seconds after last year’s installment ended – Katniss (Lawrence) is recovering from the throttling she received from Peeta (Hutcherson) after he was “hijacked” by President Coriolanus Snow (Sutherland) – Mockingjay – Part 2 starts slowly, with insurgent leader Alma Coin (Moore) and Plutarch Heavensbee (Hoffman, in his final role) strategizing their assault on the Capitol. But once Katniss goes rogue and hitches a ride on a supply shuttle to the front line, the film finds its groove. No spoilers here, but this final chapter is a solid conclusion for the franchise – an entertaining and exciting dystopian adventure that should satisfy fans of the series. It sets a high bar for YA adaptations that doesn’t look like it’s going to be raised anytime soon. Read a full review of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.
