Updated: Mar 5, 2019
Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth and others have returned to the big screen to bring the story to a close. The cast began production for the final part of the last movie in 2014 and are sad to say the story of Katniss, Gale, and Peeta has come to a close. Jennifer Lawrence left a comment to Entertainment Weekly about the close of the films, “It’s weird. It’s the right time, I guess.” The actors were sad to hear the director (Francis Lawrence) say, “That’s a wrap.” when it came to the end production.
The movie is said to be a highly accurate adaptation of the book. This installment of the trilogy is said to include loads of fight scenes and revenge upon the infamous President Snow. War has exploded across Panem, and the newly formed rebels put their plan to overthrow the Capitol into action. Katniss Everdeen (main protagonist) seeks long overdue justice for the members of the Districts. The grim tale features combat and the hard reality of what the Hunger Games has done to the main characters as well as provides answers in the long awaited finale.
One critic from Rotten Tomatoes has said, “It's a fitting finale to a much-loved franchise.” Many have given the film a 72% rating and audiences say about 82%. Grab some popcorn, put on your mockingjay pin and head to the theater to see what Mockingjay is all about. May the odds be ever in your favor.
