Critical reception[ edit ] The Hunger Games received mostly positive reviews from critics.

Mockingjay Part 2" was a satisfying, albeit bittersweet, ending. For those of you who have not read the books and do not want spoilers, I will give you this: We see very little Haymitch Woody Harrelson and even less Effie Elizabeth Banks ; their absence is felt with the lack of humorous exchanges and lightheartedness.

This is a dark, serious film without the one-liners the the previous three films had. The fact that many of the serious lines spoken by Plutarch Philip Seymour Hoffman were either delivered via a "letter" or cut adds to the somberness.

But make no mistake: Any attempt to lighten it would have been a slap in the face to the series. I highly recommend seeing it; but even more, I beg you to read the books first. So much is glossed over and left out, leaving the viewer to fill in the blanks from the novel.

I think those who have not read the book will be left with some unanswered questions, many of which are answered in the book. OK, time to move on to the specific scenes I felt were important. My favorite moments from the movie include: By the way, was it just me, or was Liam Hemsworth wearing eyeliner?

I swear Gale had more eye makeup than Katniss. It looked out of character. Commander Paylor as a strong leader: I was surprised how Paylor Patina Miller was portrayed in Part 1.

Why make her look like a peasant? So I was extremely glad to see her more polished and confident in Part 2. Katniss getting shot in the subway tunnel to the Nut in District 2: Again, so much was cut, but viewers get to enjoy a poignant moment between Prim and Katniss, a funny exchange between Katniss and Johanna, and a tender kiss between Finnick and Annie.

Peeta joining the Star Squad and Katniss telling him his favorite color, among other things: This scene brought tears to my eyes. It was awkward when she plopped down next to Gale after that.

But, I remember wanting to slap her at that part in the book, so I guess director Francis Lawrence was successful in capturing the emotions of that scene. Seeing what the "holo" looks like and how it works, finally: I also appreciated the pods correlating with those in the book.

While many were left out, the important ones remained. The tunnels and lizard mutts: Though I hated, hated, hated seeing Finnick defeated, this sequence was intense and well done. I missed Peeta delivering the line about how valuable Pollux Elden Henson was, but it was an emotionally-charged moment with Castor Wes Chathamnonetheless.

The girl in the lemon yellow coat: Again, thank you Francis Lawrence for including these little details that mean a lot to the fans of the book. While movie-goers may not notice the symbolism, book-enthusiasts know anything yellow and child-like represents Primrose, also a yellow flower.

When the rebels gun her parents down, and then her, we realize that the rebels are just as ruthless as the Capitol Peacekeepers. The sense of foreboding is apparent; we know another innocent life is about to be taken. The "Capitol" parachutes, which are, of course, the rebels: While the book portrays the children as a shield to protect Snow, the movie shows a kinder side of him, telling the audience that the children should be saved first.

I think it was smart to go that route. I wish the movie showed Katniss questioning why Prim was sent in as a medic, which would be another clue that Coin is evil.

Yes, just as satisfying in the movie as it is in the book. This is where the tears started rolling down my face.

Seeing Peeta and Katniss with their children, and Katniss delivering the acts of goodness though I think she used kindness in the movie routine and the "there are worse Games to play" line was definitely a satisfying end.

She was cute, but not so sure about the casting of her. And they are both playing in the meadow at the end.The Hunger Games.
