The Hunger Games part 2½… I hope Hollywood stops this trend of two-part finales soon.
As far as I can see this movie is two hours without any meaningful progress in the storyline whatsoever. The average TV soap opera wouldn’t even drag this out so long.
The only thing this movie highlights in terms of the plot, is that Katniss Everdeen is a ‘reluctant heroine’. But in doing so, what it really exposes is that Katniss is actually fairly irrelevant; she is just a pretty girl getting used as a pawn in someone else’s game.
A disappointing installment, and in my opinion does more damage than good to the franchise. I’d suspect skipping it altogether and just watching the real finale won’t be a problem in terms of plot at all.
