Mockingjay, Part II Review

  This past Saturday, I watched The Hunger Games: The Mockingjay, Part II. 

I am not disappointed. The last movie followed the book as closely as the first three movies. 

In fact, I’m going to make a bold statement:

This movie series is the best in terms of book adaption. 

Many times, I walk away saying, “Great movie, but it’s nothing like the book.” 

Not in the case of The Hunger Games. 

So, here are 5 things I learned from the movie:

  1. War is always personal. 
  2. Desensitization is like a sedative. Under it’s spell, nothing short of a lived experience is likely to wake you up. 
  3. There is great power in democracy. 
  4. Utopia sounds like a wonderful place, but it’s an unreachable one as well. 
  5. Never let anyone tell you that influence doesn’t matter. We all make decisions based on influence every day. 

If you’ve read The Hunger Games, I’d love to hear what you learned from the series. 

Also, I want to know your opinion:

Do the movies do the series justice?
