This is the last episode of The Hunger Games. The movie is quite tragic and dramatic – if one can’t say it disappointing. Too many deaths of the protagonists. On the other hand, the enemies, especially Snow, die too easy. The way Snow dies is similar to the way Finnick ends his life. It is odd to have a powerful man like Snow is easily captured and conquered in his own palace. The despotic Snow, despite his ability to divide-and-conquer, is even unable to have elite guard to protect him from attack launched by the rebels.
The 2nd part of the Mockingjay portrays more about emotional relationship between Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta Melark (Josh Hutcherson). The delusional guy promptly joins special squad led by Boggs (Mahershala Ali). One by one, including the commander, dies since Snow puts pods installed by gamemakers and sends Peacemaker troops to perform counter-attack. The tragedy continues though Katniss and her friends try to approach Snow’s residence through underground tunnels.
To her surprise, Snow invites people to come into his mansion to provide shelter. She and Gale (Liam Hemsworth) have to cover themselves – and they are welcomed by air strike exploded right at the front gate of the mansion. Many women and children die, and the incident forces Snow to resign. It becomes the entry point for Coin (Julianne Moore) as the next president.
Understanding Coin’s move, Katniss kills her and chooses to flee to her homeland. Not long after that Peeta comes. Both lovers build a family everyone dreams about. The movie is ended by showing Peeta and Katniss playing with their children. No more politics. No more violence. No more Hunger Games. There is nothing left but memories of the past which some should be overcome with positive responses.
