  • The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2

    The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 (2015)

    Rated PG-13, 137 min. Directed by Francis Lawrence. Starring Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Donald Sutherland, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Julianne Moore, Woody Harrelson, Natalie Dormer, Willow Shields, Mahershala Ali and Michelle Forbes.

    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.
