The nonsense continues in this conclusion to the trilogy of books by Suzanne Collins, which like many of the adventure sagas aimed at young people ends with far more self-important sobriety than it began with. Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) was informed in the first film that she’s going to have to fight on behalf of the rebellion looking to free Panem from the tyranny of evil President . In this one, she does, while also discovering more complexity to the seemingly supportive President and repairing her relationship with her beloved Peta. A few good chase sequences and a terrific cast do nothing for a plot that is just a collection of dramatic clichés with little imagination or sympathy.
