Katniss and her troops prepare for the Revolution! The times they are a-changin’ and we won’t get fooled again!
I was not disappointed, I will say that. Action aplenty, enough tension to keep you wired up and a resolution that works. They did stray from the book occasionally, but in this case I cannot argue. Lawrence is excellent as the sometimes reluctant rebel and Hoffman makes a great appearance despite being dead. Not the best of the series, but it only suffers slightly by comparison with the rest.
I’ll recommend this one; the kids should be OK, as the violence is quick and not gory…well, maybe a bit scary. No post-credit scenes, so you can roll when they do.
Flytrap rating: 7.5/10
