The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2 was the only one of the series I missed seeing in the theaters. It’s been a long wait for it to reach a streaming service, but it is at last on Amazon Prime.

With President Snow (Donald Sutherland) being his most menacing and Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) being her most heroic, Mockingjay Part 2 promises an epic final battle in this epic film series with its pointed commentary on modern life.
Katniss is leading the attack on Panem with an army from District 13 behind her. Her two closest supporters, Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) Gale (Liam Hemsworth), are right there with her.
The film will release on November 20, 2015, just in time for the Thanksgiving holiday crowds and should be a huge hit. Another female-led blockbuster can’t be anything but good news.
Here’s the first trailer released for The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1 which will be out in November.
The preview features President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and a very noticably missing Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence). Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), however, looks under President Snow’s control. Based on what we know about these characters, I’m guessing Peeta’s compliance is a sham.
The whole Hunger Games series is such a metaphor for our current political situation that it’s fascinating even though it’s somewhat predictable. Katniss is the perfect female leader and heroine.
If you didn’t watch the first Hunger Games film because you thought it was a young person’s film, I urge you to take another look.
