Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, The

Director:  Francis Lawrence
Year Released:  2015
Rating:  1.0

Finally, the concluding segment of the Hunger Games trilogy: a beaten-down Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence), mentally-broken Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), steadfast Gale (Liam Hemsworth) and a band of rebels set out to assassinate President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and end this citizen-versus-citizen nightmare. At this point all of Suzanne Collins' "political commentary" has been stated repeatedly (politicians are corrupt, media reports can be false), leaving a two plus hour fight and several recurring side characters getting wiped out. I only watched this for the sole purpose of completing the series ... but die-hard fans may have a reaction that isn't the same as mine: one long, exasperated shrug.
