I watched this movie today with my good friend, Liv. I enjoyed the movies and loved the books. I was actually looking forward to this, being the last installment of what should only have been a trilogy. The studio however made the marketing decision to divide the last movie into two because that's what all the big franchises did -- e.g. Harry Potter, Twilight, The Hobbit (this should have been only half a movie).

Part 1 was good; there was a lot of revelation (District 12 is gone! District 13 exists! Peeta is alive! Peeta is evil!) and plenty of action. Part 2 in contrast is a slumber party. I'm not saying it's boring, it's just that it lacks an oomph factor. The reason I think is that we're already through the climax and the last movie is really just the denouement.

In the end, Part 2 was entirely faithful to the book. But what worked for the books doesn't necessary work for the movies. But this was satisfying and I'm glad it's over. Now, on to the next big book-to-movie franchise.
