THE REVOLUTION IS ABOUT ALL OF US.
Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and her allies prepare to liberate the people of Panem and defeat President Snow (Donald Sutherland) and his troops once and for all. The fourth and final chapter in this franchise is largely an overblown war movie, with scenes that might remind audiences of Full Metal Jacket and Aliens. Far from a family-friendly experience, in spite of its PG-13 rating, the film does offer a lot of excitement in 3D (especially a scene where mutated animals attack) and a gruesome twist near the end that ups the stakes even more. Impressively staged, but less satisfying in its quieter, emotional moments.
