The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2

The second part of the two-part movie of the third book of the Hunger Games trilogy that should have been from the beginning, as I am now totally convinced, a single movie.   The film overall is much darker than the other installments, which I think highlights more than in the others the important themes of power and media influence. Otherwise, I personally found the movie to be rather flat and not as interesting as it should / could have been. This was disappointing to me, as I really enjoyed the books and the first 2 films of the series. I still give it a weak thumbs’ up, as it is not a bad movie, but I left wishing the director had condensed the rather slow material that dominated both films into one really great concluding movie. (2015, 2.5 stars)
