Based on the third novel in Suzanne Collins’ trilogy, the must-own limited edition Blu-ray release is packed with over five hours of special features, including the “Pawns No More: Making The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2” 8-part documentary – an in-depth look at the making of the film from production design, costumes, hair, make-up, stunts, special effects and post production.
The documentary also includes a touching piece – from the last day of shooting – in which the cast reflects on their experience shooting the four films. Also included is a detailed look at Cinna’s sketchbook and a walk through the on-set photography along with audio commentary by director.
I was first introduced to The Hunger Games when my son began reading the book series. He wanted to see the movie, so I bought the tickets, not really familiar with what it was about.
It was my first time watching a dystopian society, and I have to say I walked out of the theater feeling very disturbed by it. The whole concept of children being put through "games" by a dictator to keep the peace in their world was something hard to swallow. And it should be. It draws light on some very serious topics for young adults.
I've watched all of the movies up to this point and was looking forward to seeing how it all ends. Katniss is a strong female character who tries to live by a moral compass, but is also faced with some very difficult decisions. It isn't your usual black or white good vs. evil type story; there are some shades of grey that really cause you to think and will open up some good conversations with your teens.
In The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, you see Katniss fueling the fire of revolution against the Capital. Every step of the journey is faced with challenges, including her friend Peeta who has been programmed to kill her.
And just as in the previous films, there is a lot of loss. This film deals with the horrors of war, and just how far one is willing to go to stop evil. I don't want to spoil any of the plot for you, but I can tell you that it comes to a satisfying conclusion.
If you're a fan, you'll want to own the final chapter in The Hunger Games franchise!
