The Gist of It:
Finally the game that could only appease by blood ends. Despite been called as The Hunger Games, the games are actually about 24 people from 12 district combating against each other in order to win and there could be one winner except for the 74th Hunger Games where Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark won by displaying their love in which it didn’t seat well with the people at the Capitol.
President Snow didn’t like it one bit and he came up with “Quarter Quell” and the both survived again but with heavy price. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 saw how the mission was to save Peeta and how rebellion is structured and what was Katniss’s role in the rebellion. Peeta was saved but however his mind was “hijacked” by a different memory. So at times he can’t tell who are his enemy and his friends.
The part 2 of Mockingjay we see more off Katniss stepping up as a leader. She no longer the scared girl who usually needs protection. Katniss also finds out her role in the rebellion and finds out that her current position in the rebellion is temporary. As she fight the president Snow and his peacekeeper, Katniss is driven to protect her family; most importantly her sister Primrose.
Instead of just being a tool for the propaganda, she decided to be at the front line with soldier. President Coin played by Julianne Moore is ice cold that could freeze your tea on a Saturday afternoon. She might have diplomatic look but she strategy is all about her. Basically she is president Snow in the making in which Katniss has started to notice.
After losing a bunch of friends including Finnick, Katniss and Gale manage to penetrate the lines of security towards Snow’s mansion a hovercraft flew on top of them and drop what is suppose to be “gifts”. The gifts were explosives and it exploded on civilians and among the civilians were Katniss’s sister; Primrose. At first, Katniss assumed that the hovercraft was from Snow until she spoke to him. She understood that if Snow’s dies, Coin would be the new tyrant.
“This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector – Plato“
It’s a game over after you watch this movie despite feeling a little disappointed with the ending. There will be a part when the storyline will be reviewed again like why didn’t they do that or why did do that and others but what Francis Lawrence trying to portrait is about an individuals point of view. In this case it’s Katniss Everdeen point of view. The Mockingjay is totally different then The Hunger Games and Catching Fire. In the Mockingjay, Katniss has found herself and more focused. But what bothers us a little is that how Katniss is always suppress when battling the Capitol in which drowns Jennifer character. But coming from director Francis is something expected.
Favourite Line: “Turn your weapons to Snow!”
