The final movie of one of the most popular teen book to the series, The Hunger Games, premiered on November 20th. As soon as The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 came out, many excited fans flocked to the theater to see the largely anticipated battle between the Capitol and District 13 come to life on the screen.
Though the reviews are always mixed when a book is adapted into a movie, Mockingjay – Part 2 has been dominating box offices since it first premiered. The movie has been out for three weeks, and has already grossed over 200 million dollars. The millions of people who have read the notable books will agree that the movie’s plot does a good job following the original story.
“Throughout the movie, there were small key scenes and symbols that represented main themes that prevailed throughout the series,” said junior Samantha Lange. The actors also do a great job of portraying the characters many people across the world love and connect with. Since it is the finale to the trilogy, the resolution is heartwarming; viewers get to see a few of the main characters enjoying the rest of their lives after the chaotic scenes that took place earlier.
If you are a fan of the Hunger Games books or even just the movies, I would recommend seeing Mockingjay – Part 2. It is a dramatic finale to a series millions have followed since 2012; this movie truly sums up an exciting journey and does not disappoint.
