What can I say about Mockingjay? I get it. War is bad, full of gratuitous violence and destruction and unimaginable casualties. I personally, don’t want to read about it or watch war movies for that reason. So this was difficult to slog through for me. Katniss spends a lot of time recovering from injuries and even though she learns to be a sharp shooter, she still takes her bow and arrow into a futuristic war. No wonder she kept getting injured!
I totally saw the ending coming and usually I’m not that astute, so I marked it down a star for that reason.
How did the movies compare? Well, the fact that you have Mockingjay Part 1 and Mockingjay Part 2 should mean that the filmmakers wanted to remain faithful to the script and include as much as possible. My opinion of the movies matches my opinion of the book: good, but not as good as the earlier books and DVDs.
