4. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2
Watching this film, I felt like I was standing in line for a Roller Coaster that I never reached. After an entire (criminally underrated) film of set-up, this was supposed to be the big action extravaganza that gives Katniss Everdeen the revenge and vindication she deserved. Instead, we got a film that is essentially constant waiting, resting, hiding, and kissing. There’s a constant promise of a big battle with The Capital, but when it arrives, the movie doesn’t even show it. It’s almost as if all the money was spent on Part 2, and they had to scrape something together to fill the contractual obligation. The entire cast seems bored out of their minds, and ready to graduate from what was essentially the high school of their careers. Although improvements from the underwhelming novel were promised, no such changes occurred. What an underwhelming way to bring such an iconic franchise to an end.
