One of the fun parts of being a “blogger” in our area is the movies! And not much has been a more anticipated release than the final film in the Hunger Games series. With a quickly replied to email, Jason & I had our first date night in a while.
It’s been years since I read the novels. And while I enjoyed the book trilogy but have to say, I think I liked this movie more than the last book.
Mockingjay Part 2 starts where Part 1 ended, in District 13 with Peeta in recovery after being held captive & the revolution on going against President Snow & the capital.
This film is action packed! I thought the effects were really good. I loved the characters & actors did a great job.
Jennifer Lawrence as Katiss shines as a strong, independent heroine. I loved seeing more of the Gale, Peeta, Katiss love triangle. And Boggs, leading the team in the photo above, was one of my favorites.
As in the past films, the hair, make-up, costumes were awesome. The Capital residents like the beloved Effie’s outfits were over the top amazing!
Donald Sutherland does a great job portraying the loved to hate President Snow.
Fans of this series, do not miss this film! Take advantage of this holiday weekend & go!
Thanks to Lionsgate media marketing for inviting me to go see this film. While Jason & I were able to get early passes to the movie, I was not otherwise compensated & my review is not influenced by the passes.
