THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PART 2
Except for the last few minutes, a thoroughly satisfying conclusion to The Hunger Games series of movies. Jennifer Lawrence is wonderful, as usual, and dominates the entire movie — with all of the supporting cast putting in good performances. This final episode is very, very bleak but the direction is tight and the plotting paced well. There are some pretty deep themes explored and yet it never loses its entertainment value. The cinematography is vivid and there is an incredibly intense horror scene in the middle. Taking the edge of the movie is the rather soppy last few minutes — it should have finished when … (I’m not telling you that!!). If you’ve seen the previous episodes you are definitely want to see this one — and it’s great in 3D! Check it out!
