Review: The Hunger Games – Mockingjay (2D)

So The Hunger Games follows the lead of Harry Potter and – its own spiritual nemesis – Twilght, and splits its final chapter in half. The result… is not surprising. After the events of the trilogy’s second act, Catching Fire, Katniss wakes up surrounded by new allies with dubious motives. She desperately wants to rescue…
