This is it. For fans of the wildly popular Hunger Games franchise, everything is about to come to a hopefully epic conclusion. While I personally am not a fan of how the final story wrapped itself up in the novel, this film adaptation will hopefully fix some of those mistakes. After all, director Francis Lawrence, who’s directed the series since Catching Fire, has done a wonderful job of ironing out those flaws in his previous installments of this franchise.
As for this trailer, I find it solid, if a bit underwhelming. Everything looks completely competent, and there are some solid character and action beats here, but there’s nothing stunning, and that should be the case for the big finale. Watching the main characters run away from what looks like a bunch of oil just doesn’t inspire too much excitement. Hopefully they’re just holding the best stuff back for the movie, which should be an intense bloodbath that never lets up, and I’m pretty confident that the movie will deliver exactly that.
It should be fun nonetheless, and hopefully once The Hunger Games series is over, it’s less good imitators (with the exception of The Maze Runner) will start to fade into the sunset as well.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 comes out November 20th
