POSTER TITLE RATING
The Hunger Games
Mockingjay

Part 2

(2015)

 

Plot Summary

After Katniss Everdeen, the girl on fire, accepted the role of the Mockingjay, the symbol of rebellion against the autocratic Capitol, she and the rebels of District 13 poises an all out war against them. However, this time Katniss has a personal agenda: assassinating President Snow herself to gain revenge not only for Panem’s sake, but for her own as well

Verdict

I really enjoyed the Hunger Games Trilogy(!), both the films and the books but do feel the last two instalments would of been better off as one film. There is a lot of talking and slow moments that appear there just to fill time. Still a worthy watch though
