Watching the star-studded cast of Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore and Donald Sutherland alongside JLaw, it’s obvious that they have done this together before and for some time. They effortlessly pull off their longtime friends/frenemies roles. The rest of the cast, including an emotional posthumous appearance by the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman, are great in their supporting roles.

As if you hadn’t guessed already, Katniss didn’t die after the near-fatal attack by Peeta at the end of The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1. Part 2 doesn’t waste time on the narrative; with three prequels the foundation of this story has already been set. This is a war film that lets you experience war and rebellion both on the battlefield and in the hearts and minds of its fighters.

The action scenes are creative and visually compelling. The dangerous journey from the district to Snow’s mansion will break your heart, one character at a time. The betrayals, mines, fire, death and destruction will be a great treat.

As the curtain falls on this saga that has engrossed an entire generation, may the odds be ever in your favour!

Mockingjay Part 2 is so fast-paced; it may require a second viewing - which is perfect for renting on BoxOffice on your DStv Explora.
