The fourth film in the “trilogy” of the Hunger Games, Mockingjay – Part 2 is the satisfying conclusion to the 2014 film in which Katniss Everdeen leads the rebellion against the Capitol and its leader President Snow. Much like Part 1, Mockingjay is carried by Jennifer Lawrence, whose performance rises above an otherwise ordinary screenplay. Lacking any real surprises, this final installment to the series is worth a watch, but only if you’ve seen the previous films (Klaus Ming December 2015).
