As the war of Panem escalates to the destruction of other districts by the Capitol, Katniss Everdeen, the reluctant leader of the rebellion, must bring together an army against President Snow, while all she holds dear hangs in the balance.
I’d say I was pretty disappointed with the ending to the Hunger Games movie trilogy.
Not that I remember much of past movies, but I did feel the perspective or atmosphere of the setting changed quite a bit. There’s a lot of planning and plotting and then running and chasing and then all of the sudden characters who played fairly active roles in previous movies die and I didn’t really feel much emotion, at least not from the characters from whom it should have come.
At other times, the movie dragged on unnecessarily and some dialogues were cringe-worthy.
I felt that the resolution to the conflict which has been lasting for so long was rushed and some things certainly did not make sense.
So let me get this straight – Katniss chooses Peeta over Gale because Gale could not protect Primrose? Seriously? Also, Peeta gets magically cure and can suddenly control all his urges and they live happily ever after?
Alas, it makes for a good action movie, with lots of running around and fighting and a heroine who still somewhat manages to stay likeable, even despite the loathing love triangle but who, to be frank, I did not recognize much anymore. Here is a girl who one minute wants to do the right thing and the next she isn’t looking at means to achieve her end.
I don’t know. I was puzzled. It’s an entertaining movie but it didn’t give me the closure I expected and the ending was completely ridiculous.
