I'm a film reviewer who also has a keen eye for filmmaking

Mockingjay part 2 stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Donald Sutherland and everyone you've come to love over the last few films. This last film in the series sees Katniss and her allies finally assaulting the Capitol to kill President Snow.

I have enjoyed the hunger games series since the first film and I personally think that it is one of the better young adult film series out there. Even though Mockingjay part 2 isn't flawless it is a fitting end to a pretty solid film series.

The acting is great from everyone, Jennifer Lawrence is as good as usual and Josh Hutcherson is the best he's ever been. The main thing that drives this film is the characters and the emotional situations they have to go through. some of the slower, more emotional can bog the film down but quite a few of them pack a punch.

I have to admit that for a 12 rated film some of the action scenes are brutal, I mean body parts do fly in this film.

As i am a person who prefers to go into book to film adaptations without any prior knowledge there were more than a few moments throughout this film where it actually took me by surprise. You don't know who is going to die and what will happen, which i think gave it an extra sense of unpredictability.

Now like I said the film isn't perfect. It does feel incredibly slow at times, certain people and events occur out of nowhere which is confusing and there is scene towards the middle of the film that has a horror vibe as well as being full of jump scares. I didn't go into dramatic, action, adventure film asking for jump scares.

Apart from those problems it is a very good film that is just as good as Catching Fire, which in my opinion is the best in the series.
