The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 | The Reel Roundup

TRR: Though it might feel like forever, the first Hunger Games movie was only released a mere three years ago. Since then, we've watched star Jennifer Lawrence go from being a virtual unknown to one of the most sought-after actresses in Hollywood, while her character, Katniss Everdeen, evolved from a meek, small-town teenager into a powerful voice for freedom, known to the people of Panem simply as the Mockingjay. Now, in the final chapter of the Hunger Games saga, Katniss' four-movie journey comes to its highly anticipated end, as she and her rebel comrades attempt to put a stop to Panem's bloody civil war by putting a bullet between the eyes of the man responsible: President Snow (Donald Sutherland). Returning to the franchise one last time is director Francis Lawrence, who builds upon the foundation laid by the three previous films, leveraging the audience's familiarity with the characters for maximum impact.
