The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 (there, that's the last time I have to type that mouthful) has not dethroned its predecessors to take the spot of best movie in the franchise. But it is a solid action film full of memorable performances.

In lesser hands, Katniss's willingness to suffer for the whole world may seem like classic teen narcissism... But Lawrence possesses an astonishing ability to convey profound emotional seriousness without ever seeming to do anything.

Mockingjay Part 2 is a satisfying conclusion overall, with the franchise as a whole being so satisfying within the dismal dystopian YA genre that it only feels disappointing considering what has come before.

Mockingjay Part 2's gloomy, monotone approach makes this feel like an exhausting obligation to sit through.

I like that both the book and the movie ditched the action-y bombast and took Katniss' story to a quieter, more emotionally resonant place. It felt earned, given The Hunger Games has always been more about Katniss' character evolution.

Still a strong effort, and I respect the heck out of the filmmakers' collective efforts to maintain thematic fidelity to the overarching ideas Collins' novels deftly end up exploring.

iI's an enjoyable enough watch and if you've been with the series from the beginning you should go and see it to finish things off. But speaking as a fan of The Hunger Games, I don't see myself choosing to sit through it again any time soon.

A movie of limited intrinsic merit, and about which it's difficult to make any positive claim for its quality stronger than that it's definitely better than Mockingjay Part 1.

When it gets to its final stretch -- the one that nothing except books or Wikipedia or other movies can prepare you for -- Mockingjay Part 2 is well-prepared for what might strike non-fans (or even some actual fans) as anticlimax.
May 11, 2016
It takes an actress of the calibre of Jennifer Lawrence to successfully convey The Hunger Games protagonist's existential conundrum.

Holy heck is it good.

For the past three falls, a new 'Hunger Games' movie has come around to remind us that so many of its elements - blockbuster franchise, YA novel adaptation, multiple films from one book - aren't inherently evil.
April 28, 2016
Part 2 adds some much-needed adventure back into the mix.

A series that just a few years ago seemed to bubble with personality and intrigue and depth is closed out here as coldly as possible.

None of the film-makers in the series has worked out how to marry its smaller concerns about love and family with its larger themes of propaganda and dying for a cause.

Mockingjay Part 2 is one great example of the source material being respected, partially because with fans like this saga has, such allegiance is expected.

The pace picks up as Katniss traverses a city laced with booby traps - an oil flood and a tunnel full of mutants provide the film's best action scenes.

Although the pace picks up, there's no sense of grandness to what is meant to be a huge finale and, actually, some may even feel underwhelmed by how the plot plays out.

... provides a satisfying end to the story rather than an inspiring one. It preserves the dark turn of the book's finale, the character of Katniss, and the journey of Peeta to recover the compassion destroyed by Snow.
March 11, 2016
A fittingly serviceable end to a series that always had more potential than impact.
