It is so weird for me to write a Mockingjay Part 2 Movie review and warn all of you about the “spoilers” in the post. I am assuming you have read all the books! The books are one of my favorite reads! They had me wanting more and I hated to have to put the books down. After attending an expense paid trip to LA to walk the Red Carpet, Screen the Movie, and attend the after party…I am pretty darn excited to see this movie KILL THE BOX OFFICE this weekend!
I am sad to see the movies come to an end, just like I was sad to had finished reading the last book several years ago. I thought the finale was great and the movie did a wonderful job at staying true to the story. I thought the mutts were scary and I felt warm and fuzzy at the end of the movie but also a little empty. I felt the same way when reading the books. I bought into the characters so much that the fact that Primrose and the others that died won’t be coming back is sad. I was happy to see her and Peeta together but always questioned the relationship struggles she had throughout the series and movies.
Mockingjay Part 2 Movie Review
Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2 had us both on the edge of our seats throughout many parts of the movie. I jumped several times (even though I knew the story already). Relationships were huge in this movie. One of my favorite lines was when Katniss tells Peeta, “We keep each other alive. That is what we do.” As for the action—there was a lot of it! I even accidentally leaned toward the stranger next to me on the other side. The mutts were UGLY and SCARY. They also were not what I pictured. The movie cast was amazing! I thought the talent was wonderful, the costumes and makeup AND special effects were way above average!
I am not the ONLY one who loved the movie! Read what some other people said:
Vanity Fair raves Mockingjay to be “the best in the series”.
Forbes declares it as, “It is as thrillingly bold and brave as any franchise finale I can remember.”
To quote Entertainment Weekly, “the acting and production values are still well above grade…”
