Film review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2

Katniss is tired, and so are we. The climax has been awaited far too long, mostly because Suzanne Collins’s three novels have been stretched across four films totaling more than nine hours. Jennifer Lawrence has cemented her status as the archer par excellence whose face, three-finger salute and flaming mockingjay pin became the symbols of a revolution against the smiling but devious President Snow (Donald Sutherland).

The first film’s Hunger Games, an annual reality-show event in which two dozen boys and girls from the dystopian country’s 12 districts participate and slowly get killed off until one survives, showed us the rise of Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), who took part in order to save her younger sister, Prim, from being forced to compete. She befriends Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), a fellow competitor who is a boy from the same district as her, and the two of them undermine the rules, causing President Snow to lose face. This small act of defiance eventually sparks a wider rebellion, whose progress is marked by the subsequent three films in the series
