Katniss Everdeen, played by starlet Jennifer Lawrence, may be hailed as an iconic heroine which girls everywhere can idolize but I’m still at odds with The Hunger Games series of movies. How and why The Hunger Games released in 2012 became so successful can probably be attributed to the massive fan following of author Suzanne Collins creation. How else do you explain a movie so bland becoming a worldwide phenomenon?
Maybe director Gary Ross had little to no interest in the movie hence his dull take on this dystopian novel. Fortunately the producers were smart to recruit a director with more visual flair to takeover. Cue Francis Lawrence, whose Keanu Reeve’s starrer “Constantine” is an underrated debut, to inject some much needed energy.
Still the central conceit of this world never truly connected with me. The love triangle even less so. If it weren’t for the terrific characterization of Katniss and Ms Lawrence excellent attempt at bringing her to life this franchise would probably never matter to me. As with most fans I too am excited for the concluding chapter of “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2” saga due in November 2015 in South East Asia.

The blockbuster Hunger Games franchise has taken audiences by storm around the world, grossing more than $2.2 billion at the global box office. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 now brings the franchise to its powerful final chapter in which Katniss Everdeen [Jennifer Lawrence] realizes the stakes are no longer just for survival – they are for the future.
With the nation of Panem in a full scale war, Katniss confronts President Snow [Donald Sutherland] in the final showdown. Teamed with a group of her closest friends – including Gale [Liam Hemsworth], Finnick [Sam Claflin], and Peeta [Josh Hutcherson] – Katniss goes off on a mission with the unit from District 13 as they risk their lives to liberate the citizens of Panem, and stage an assassination attempt on President Snow who has become increasingly obsessed with destroying her. The mortal traps, enemies, and moral choices that await Katniss will challenge her more than any arena she faced in The Hunger Games.
