Mockingjay, the third instalment of the Hunger Games series, has finally hit theatres. The first two movies showed children fighting each other to the death in the Hunger Games, a televised reality show. This time, it gets even darker.
Where Catching Fire, number two in the trilogy, left its viewer with the feeling that revolution was coming, now, Mockingjay has lost all of this urgency. It serves more as a stepping stone for the last Hunger Games than anything else.
But what it does well is depicting the highly manipulated televising of a revolution as well as what happens to those who dare to revolt.
