The four year movie franchise closed the curtains last night when the last installment of Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games trilogy, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part Two, premiered. I had the privilege of attending the premiere and, being a fan since the beginning, I felt that the send-off was flawless and authentic.
The movie picks up immediately where Part 1 leaves off, and Jennifer Lawrence does a wonderful job portraying Katniss’ shock immediately after the-Boy-with-the-Bread, Peeta’s, attack. The raw emotion that was shown, right up to her damaged voice that was so beautifully realistic, set the standard for the rest of the movie, and it definitely makes the cut.
The filmmakers truly took the reader’s emotions into account when creating this movie. Most of the book was transformed onto the big screen, and all of the heart-wrenching scenes and pivotal moments that shaped the novel was thankfully not only added into the adaption, but delightfully well-acted by the well loved cast.
Each twist and turn was portrayed exactly how I had imagined while reading the book, and each moment pulled at my heart strings in the same way the novel did. From Katniss’ adventure through the Capitol to the downfall of Panem’s leaders, everything was exactly how I had pictured it. As a long-time fan, I was very impressed by the cast and crew’s wonderful adaption.
The part that really won me over, however, was the epilogue scene. The scene was only slightly changed, but the change only made the entirety of the scene more powerful and heartfelt. The movie really did the book justice, and gave me closure for my four year following of the series.
In my personal opinion, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 is a masterpiece, and should be a model for future movie adaptations, I highly suggest taking the time to see it. It will not disappoint.

I give the movie four and a half stars out of five.
★★★★½
