1 Paragraph Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 (3.8/10)

Granted that I have avoided seeing the films that were generally viewed as major turds of the year (Fantastic 4, Pan, 50 Shades…) I went into “Mockingjay Part 2” with cautious expectations.  “Catching Fire” was great, “Mockingjay Part 1” was slow but acceptable.  This one was… oh god, what the heck did I just watch.  The film was dragged way too long; you can feel each scene being dragged just a bit longer they should just to fill up its 2-hour run time.  It was frustrating and boring at the same time.  The production and cinematography were fine, but the story was handled so badly that this has got to be one of the most unsatisfying endings to a saga I’ve never seen.
