The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 2015

     Katniss Everdeen has been through a lot and she has become the symbol of the rebellion against the Capitol.  Her main goal at this point is to personally assassinate President Snow.  She would also like to see her friend Peeta return to normal after his terrible mental and physical experiences in the Capitol.  The President of the rebellion, Alma Coin is talking about another Hunger Games if their campaign against the Capitol is a success?
     I would’ve liked to see a brief recap of Mockingjay Part 1 at the beginning of this film?  It seems like a lot of time has elapsed between the two films and I couldn’t remember some of the names of the characters.  Even though time has passed, I felt burned out with the entire plot and story?  I really think the Mockingjay needed to be one film and then be finished but there was more money to be made with two films?  3* (This movie is OK)
