In the fourth and final installment of the popular Hunger Games franchise, the country Panem is under the siege of full-blown war with the oppressive Capitol. Main character Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) defies President Coriolanus Snow (Donald Sutherland) in a final clash that will end the Games forever. Armed with her bow and arrow, Katniss bands together with Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), Gale (Liam Hemsworth) and recently married Finnick (Sam Claflin) to free the people of Panem from the Capitols strict rule and bring the nation peace once and for all. The movie is action packed. Each sequence where Katniss must escape the dark traps set in place by President Snow to ambush the rebel team navigating their way through the ravaged Capitol city leave the audience reeling.

Although the movie encompasses key themes from the novel, it leaves out important details that might make the movie confusing to those who have not read the books. In this sense, the movie feels rushed and haphazardly put together because very important aspect of the novels are omitted and the viewer is left to infer the fates of some characters.

Overall, the movie was entertaining and full of action, with exciting sci-fi twists that improve upon the book’s central plot. Although it is not nearly as great as the first two movies (The Hunger Games and Catching Fire), Mockingjay: Part 2 is an excellent and satisfying finale to the Hunger Games.
