Movie Review: Hunger Games Mockingjay part 2 (2015)
This is the last installment of the Hunger Games Movie. I had read the books, so knew what to expect; however Caleb, who had not read the books commented that it was pretty intense. I hoped beyond home that Primrose (Willow Shields) wouldn’t die as she did in the books. Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) was wounded on several occasions, beginning with the choking she took in the last movie. At another point she was shot, and if not for her armor would have perished. She was also almost blown up at another point. This movie is intense, with some pretty wicked traps and monsters out to get them as they travel to the capitol to kill President Snow (Donald Sutherland). It answers a couple questions. Who will be the next ruler? It appears President Coin (Julianne Moore) is ready to take over, and continue the games. This show also answers the question, Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) or Gale (Liam Hemsworth). There are some scenes that were really scary. Especially as they faced those creatures under the street level. Scary! Based on the book by Suzanne Collins.
