3. Jennifer Lawrence is amazing in her leading role.
4. The romance between Peeta and Katniss continues and the triangle with Gale is resolved.
5. A Satisfying conclusion to the tale with a beautiful epilogue.
6. Strong themes that resonate in current culture.
This final movie in the series (books and films) is an important wrap-up to what is arguably the defining series of our time. The story delivers a heft and a cohesiveness that is unusual in the action/adventure genre. All actors give strong performances. Jennifer Lawrence is, if possible, even better here than before. It is not surprise that she gravitates to other strong women. It is most exciting to see the actress Patina Miller speak to masses of people of every gender and color with power and persuasion.
The images and the artistry as well as the characters will live on in the viewers’ memories in a good way for a long time. This movie seems to set the standard for excellence in a series.
