The end if near for The Hunger Games franchise with the fourth movie – Mockingjay Part 2 – looking like it’s going to build to a satisfying if not altogether happy ending. It’s been a game changing franchise demonstrating that Young Adult novels can be adapted to appeal not just to the core fan base but reach a far broader audience, and they don’t have to pander but can rather be saying for more than most mainstream fare. This fourth part seems to be heavy on the action and revolution following the previous instalment which, while interesting, many interpreted as being more filler than killer.
Jennifer Lawrence stars once again as Katniss Everdeen along with a rather epic cast including Liam Hemsworth, Josh Hutcherson, Julianne Moore, Elizabeth Banks. Stanley Tucci, Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Donald Sutherland. Francis Lawrence returns to direct his third film in the franchise.
