“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2” is the final movie to see Katniss Everdeen be played by Jennifer Lawrence on screen. Upon release last November 18, 2015, reviews indicated that it was not as great as the previous installments of the franchise with several changes to the plot that was revealed through Suzanne Collins’ books.
As reported by Comingsoon.Net, the final installment of “The Hunger Games” franchise was disappointment, especially in comparison to the previous movies of the franchise. It was said that the way things ended in the books was deviated by the movie to the extent that “The Hunger Games” was a completely different adaptation from the book.
In fact, it was reported that the story itself was entirely different to the extent that instead of the focus gearing towards Katniss’ choice between Peeta (played by Josh Hutcherson) and Gale (played by Liam Hemsworth) in a romantic sense, the film focused more on Katniss’ choice being which of both choices would make her role as the Mockingjay more relevant.
In other news, MTV reported the various moments in the film franchise that made “The Hunger Games” achieve the tremendous success that it has had over the years. One of the analyses concluded that the drama portrayed in the film, which was less apparent from the books brought the movie adaptation to its success.
In fact, a review done by Crystal Bell stated that she was completely won over by Lawrence’s performance that it made her know the character Katniss more from the movie rather than the books. Given this review, it was apparent that the audience got more out of “The Hunger Games” from the movie as compared to the books.
“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2” is currently showing in theatres worldwide where the final chapter of the book and movie franchise comes to an end. After reprising the role of Katniss Everdeen, where is Jennifer Lawrence leaning up to next?
