THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 2

“…a rather disappointing crash and burn for a series that brought attention to positive action role models for young girls.”  - Monica Castillo, International Business Times

“…the war against the Capitol gallops to a finish, the battle for Katniss’ heart concludes long at last, and we can all go home with a sigh of relief that the saga is over.” – Kilian Melloy, Edge Boston

“MOCKINGJAY – PART 2 is at once just another franchise finale, but at the same time something far more in depth in its thematic focus.” – Greg Vellante, Sound and Picture

“If it is the job of fiction to turn a mirror back onto ourselves, then THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY – PART 2 is successful in that vein.” – Deirdre Crimmins, Cinematic Essential

“In spite of the unnecessary padding that led to “Mockingjay” being split in half, the series ends on a strong note.” – Daniel M. Kimmel, North Shore Movies
