"Mockingjay Part 2" by Yojimbo

As the forces of the rebellion take the offensive, the Mockingjay and the Victors are deployed in the Capital as propaganda tools, but Katniss breaks rank to take the fight to President Snow himself.
The finale of the popular franchise ends as it began; with a nicely themed, politically savvy plot embellished by flashy set pieces and encased in a teen-friendly gloss. Much of my criticisms of the previous film hold true, however. The best supporting characters in the form of Haymitch and Snow garner far too little screen time and the action sequences although nicely executed are rather too derivative and generic - the scenes in the sewer in particular are virtually identical to those of Blade II. But by far the greatest flaw is in the fact that, like Mockingjay Part 1, the plot is a littl...

The MockingJay returns to save the day-and kill!

I scoffed at the cynical ploy that Lionsgate took in splitting up the final chapter of the Hunger Games film series. It's the simplest way to make money off filming a book series. I hated it when Twilight did it and Harry Potter and now Divergent has done it too. That being said, MockingJay Part 2 is pretty good. It's a solid conclusion to the story with a sufficient mix of action and the romantic entanglements that Y/A movies are notorious for these days. While Part 1 was well made, it was talky and slow moving. Part two picks things up and the pacing is far better.
Jennifer Lawrence is still the feisty strong willed heroine we were introduced to in the first movie four years ago but she's matured some which is a plus. Josh Hutcherson remains more interesting than Liam Hemsworth as the...

Köcheln

Eine bescheuerte Erfindung, das letzte Buch einer bekannten Reihe in zwei Kinofilme aufzuteilen. Warum nicht einfach doppelt so viel verdienen? Weil es auch in solch einer Serie immer noch um Dramaturgie und Narration geht. Hier also nun der ultimative allerletzte Teil der Hunger Games. Teil eins im letzten Jahr kam mir wie ein zu lang geratener Platzhalter vor. Folgendes geschah: Katniss Everdeen wirkte in revolutionären Werbeclips mit, bevor der Kampf begann. Schnitt. Ich bezahlte Geld für einen halben Film, drückte mein Popcorn rein und wurde Zeuge, wie eine echte Cashcow aufgezogen wird. Mockingjay – Part 2 verspricht mehr, immerhin erleben wir dieses Mal wirklich das Ende. Aufgeboten wird wieder die ganze Reihe seriöser Schauspieler neben der tollen Jennifer Lawrence: Philip Seymour ...

Somber Send-Off

'The Hunger Games' series has come to a somber finale with 'Mockingly Part 2'. While I don't agree that this last novel needed to be adapted into two films, the result is still a couple of well made films. Given that fact, we dived into more character development and political themes in the slow burn build up of 'Part 1'. Most expected this to be the big action heavy payoff, and it is, but only in specific scenes. When action is happening it's well shot and exciting. Substantial consequences arise from the battles and you do feel the impact. The rest of the story is more concerned about the emotional repercussions of this war and the political agendas from both sides. Our heroine's journey through all these films is the most satisfying aspect here. She has no real side. She was r...

"Turn your weapons to Snow!"

Katniss Everdeen: "Tonight, turn your weapons to the Capitol!".

The story in Mockingjay Part 2 is Katniss fully embracing her role as the face of the district revolution in the "Mockingjay" she leads an all-out assault on the capital to bring down President Snow and his autocratic rule once and for all.

After the dull filler that was Mockingjay Part 1, I mean splitting movies into two parts isn't a great idea with some book adaption movies that don't need it, because the books themselves were not long and flowed together nicely. And yes Harry Potter did the splitting movies into two because well, the book itself was freaking huge, so huge that a little toddler can reach the top shelf by standing on the freaking book. It's completely pointless and now every book a...

Rebel With a Cause

"Welcome to the 76th Annual Hunger Games" so says Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin) moments before he and a handful of the most bankable rebels embark on a dangerous journey to retake the capitol from the seemingly heartless President Snow (Donald Sutherland).

The Hunger Games ends much the way it began - in good, though not quite spectacular, fashion. I still think Catching Fire reached the pinnacle of this series and I'm still not sure the decision to split Mockingjay into two parts was the correct choice (though it was obviously the most profitable). Mockingjay - Part 2 does have some of the most action-packed scenes in any of the films - as traps, mutant attacks and a tense finale all enhance that aspect of the film. We also get an answer as to who Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) w...
