Total Film Review 4/5 stars

Katniss is back for more

Ever seen it rain blood in a kids’ film before? How about a pensioner getting executed in front of his family? Or a teenager hacking a skinhead to death with an axe? Or Lenny Kravitz being slapped in the face? The first Hunger Games caught flak because it dared to treat its YA audience like A’s – but things aren’t exactly looking any rosier in the sequel.

Following the unwritten lore of movie trilogies, the middle chapter of Katniss Everdeen’s sci-fi survival story is darker, moodier, meaner and, yes, better than Part 1.

It stuck so close to the book. Everything looks amazing and the characters are so strong! I had no disappointments and the ending has set everything up for part 1 and 2 of Mockingjay.

Good film but poor way to end it.
