The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2

Published: November 21, 2015

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, This will come as no surprise to fans of the challenging, surprisingly provocative book upon which it’s based, but the movie doesn’t offer up easy closure or answers at any time. It’s not a deeply subtle film or anything – every action is carried out in the boldest of strokes and then lit on fire – but it does have more on its mind than bringing the story to a rousing conclusion. In some ways, Mockingjay – Part 2 is a teenage primer on the cyclical nature of oppression and the way power keeps feeding said oppression.

That’s pretty grim stuff for a holiday blockbuster, but Mockingjay – Part 2 is buoyed by the fact that the Hunger Games movies have always had a far better cast than they deserve, starting with star Jennifer Lawrence and continuing down to nearly everybody else (save one major exception).

You’re not going to leave the theater cheering at the end of Mockingjay – Part 2. You’re going to leave the theater feeling a little drained and like you need to call a loved one. That’s not necessarily a bad thing – more of our blockbusters could stand to be tonally ambitious – but the movie also makes quite a few promises it can’t keep. It’s worth your time, but it doesn’t top the second installment in the Hunger Games franchise, 2013’s Catching Fire, which is still the series’ best.
