I have finished the entire Hunger Games Movie series and I don’t know what to say. It’s so incredible. All the stories and rules that make up the entire Panem seems so real. Direct by Francis Lawrence, these two movie come together to create such a great finale of the battle against President Snow.
In Mockingjay part 1, Katniss becomes the Mockingjay of district 13. She gathers allies from different districts including District 2 and 8. The president of District 13 is President Alma Coin. She gets Katniss to shoot small films to broadcast throughout all the districts which persuade the district to fight against President Snow. Meanwhile, captured by the Capitol, Peeta talks on the tv about Katniss and asks her to stop doing what she is doing and to not create a war. In the end, Peeta and the other tributes are rescued by the army of District 13 and are brought to safety. Katniss goes to meet Peeta, but to find out that he is mentally disturbed. The movie ends with Katniss watching Peeta as he lays in his bed tied to it in a locked room.
The second part of Mockingjay is where the real war starts. Katniss and her allies bring their fight to the Capitol. Katniss secretly decides to assassinate President Snow herself. She lies to her squad telling them that she is on special orders from President Coin to kill President Snow. The group travels through train and sewer tunnels to reach the palace without being seen. On their journey, they face multiple challenges and obstacles. Peeta, who is in a better condition, also joins the group. There were at least eight or nine people in the group in the beginning. Now in the end, there are only six. It’s up to Katniss and her group to either hide or stand up tall and decide the future of Panem. The rebels against the Capitol drop a large bomb and kill almost the entire population of the Capitol. Katniss blackouts and wakes up to find herself in the hospital where her mother is tending her wounds. Haymitch tells her that the war is over after the explosion. Katniss finds out that her younger sister, Primrose, is dead from the explosion and is saddened by her loss. After the war has ended, President Snow is captured and is locked up in greenhouse guarded with highly armed men. President Coin declares herself Interim President of Panem and says that instead of just killing all the people of President Snow, there should be another Hunger Game. Katniss agrees and says that she will get to personally execute Snow. The next day, Katniss has to kill Snow, but she kills President Coin, instead, knowing that President Coin could do bad things like President Snow. The people of the districts become angry and kill President Snow. In the end, Katniss goes back to District 12 where one of the houses in Victors’ Village isn’t destroyed. The story of Katniss ends with her sitting with her baby on a large field with Peeta playing with their older daughter. Katniss tells her younger child that she will tell him or her about everything she went through and did in her past and how she survived it all.
The final movie is like a cliffhanger for me. I want to know more. What happened after that and what happened after Katniss came back home to District 12. I love this series and I might even read the book version of the story. I give the third movie an 8 out of 10 and the fourth movie a 9 out of 10. I again would like to recommend these two movies to those who haven’t watched them. Thank you.
