Movie Habit

A satisfying conclusion to a brilliant series of films that show us the dangers of the oligarchy.

Cinema Sight

In this final film, fans will get a satisfying resolution. It's an emotional and dark journey illuminated by an otherworldly performance from Jennifer Lawrence.

I remember struggling with Suzanne Collins' final book. It didn't have the same sense of urgency and excitement. My thoughts on this movie are essentially the same.

ABC Radio Brisbane

I understand that YA books succeed by transposing real teen concerns into life-and-death fantasy situations, but any connection to the characters that existed by the end of 2013's Catching Fire has been stripped away by these plodding Mockingjay movies.

It's frustrating to watch the Jennifer Lawrence be marched from plot point to plot point, just getting things over with.

Audience Reviews for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2


Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 Review:
Let me preface this by saying that not everyone is going to like this film. In fact it will be so divisive that you'll either outright hate it or like it. I'm also in the camp that disliked aspects of the book, so going into this film I was feeling very hesitant to seeing the scenes I hated played out. However, under the assured direction of Francis Lawrence, the Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 transcends its source material in every way possible. The movie is hauntingly grim throughout, and hope is sparse- as it should be! This movie doesn't aim to gloss over the effects of war or PTSD, it tackles them head on, unflinching, which can be hard for an audience member to take in. This movie will make you feel whether you want to or not- it will not let you stay pedestrian as it demands a reaction to what you're viewing. A lot of credit also has to be given to Jennifer Lawrence, who's nuanced and at times passive reactions to the events around her are so perfectly fit for this dystopian world. There is a scene towards the end of the film, that is so heartbreaking and Lawrence commits her all into the scene, truly encapsulating the grief of loss. Josh Hutcherson also shines in this final instalment, giving a real depth to Peeta during his period of recovery. The other noteworthy performance comes from Donald Sutherland as President Snow. This film isn't perfect and there are many flaws (especially with pacing), and an argument can be made to splitting the movies into two parts (it still would of worked in one film) but I'm willing to overlook the flaws in this movie, through the way it spoke to me, and at the moment it's a touching piece of commentary of the ongoing conflicts around the world. I'm giving this final part a perfect score- does it fully deserve it? No, most probably not. But if I didn't give it a perfect score, I would be being disingenuous to myself.

Katniss and crew continue their coup against the Capitol.
The final installment of the series is much tighter than its predecessor, which had too few plot events to make a complete film. While there are a few moments that ham-handedly renew old plotlines, most of the film trudges to its inevitable conclusion. The love triangle, as hackneyed as it is, has more charm in the book, but this may be because Jennifer Lawrence has only cursory chemistry with her two male costars. Gale's transition is mysterious in both mediums.
So here ends another franchise - until they try to reboot it - and it's a fine conclusion.
Overall, the final film is solid compared with the ups and downs of the rest of the franchise.

Despite some structural problems and narrative stupidities (it is a mystery that Katniss and the rebels are not killed right away, given how incompetent they seem), and most importantly a silly, artificial and sexist last scene, this is still an efficient conclusion that works thanks to the adult way that it shows the outcome of a revolution.
