Movie review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2

It’s hard to fathom that it’s only been 3 1/2 years since the first *Hunger Games* came out on the big screen. It feels like it was much longer than that, but the saga is finished and they went out on a high note.

The fans who read the books all know how the story ends, which I would guess represents a large percentage of the people — mostly young girls — who were in the theater. Even so, there was a lot of applauding, and sighs, as the story wrapped up. It feels complete.

Jennifer Lawrence was, as expected, awesome. I’m guessing that the hardest thing about playing the character of Katniss is that she is so consistently in a fog of depression, angst, uncertainty — whatever you want to call it. But, there are a few moments here and there when Jennifer Lawrence really gets to show off her skills, and give Katniss some real depth. She had a few of those moments in MJ2 that really stand out. (I’m not going to say which. You’ll know them when you see them.)
