THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY - PART 2 [2015]

Director Francis Lawrence finally brings The Hunger Games films series to a close with Mockingjay - Part 2, the 2nd part of the adaptation of the final book.
Katniss & a team of rogue allies go on a dangerous mission to assissinate President Snow once and for all.
With the drawn-out pointlessness of the previous film, Part 2 charges forward with it's action sequences (and mild plot development) to the finish line with grim delight.  However, it's too late, the boring damage of Part 1 is done and makes it difficult to really give much of a crap anymore.  It'd be easier to care if the leading characters had any sort of personality whatsoever but that went out the window when the series started.  As an admirer of The Games, the film is entertaining enough to feel good about finally letting it go but it's heavy faults really can't go unnoticed.
