As the war of Panem escalates to the destruction of other districts, Katniss Everdeen, the reluctant leader of the rebellion, must bring together an army against President Snow, while all she holds dear hangs in the balance.
Katniss Everdeen is in District 13 after she shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta and a nation moved by her courage.
Katniss Everdeen voluntarily takes her younger sister's place in the Hunger Games: a televised competition in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to fight to the death.
In a world divided by factions based on virtues, Tris learns she's Divergent and won't fit in. When she discovers a plot to destroy Divergents, Tris and the mysterious Four must find out what makes Divergents dangerous before it's too late.
After young Katniss Everdeen agrees to be the symbol of rebellion, the Mockingjay, she tries to return Peeta to his normal state, tries to get to the Capitol, and tries to deal with the battles coming her way...but all for her main goal: assassinating President Snow and returning peace to the Districts of Panem. As her squad starts to get smaller and smaller, will she make it to the Capitol? Will she get revenge on Snow or will her target change? Will she be with her "Star-Crossed Lover," Peeta, or her long-time friend, Gale? Deaths, bombs, bow and arrows, a love triangle, hope... What will happen? Written by

Better writing should have been implemented for the strategies, dialogue, and the awkward romance element forced to fit in.
The first movie was the best of the bunch, this being the finale... to say it was disappointing in its execution would be an understatement. Too much focus is spent on special effects while attention to good substance is lost in this installment. In short, it's as if Michael Bay oversaw this tragic mess. The acting (If most of the dialogue is excluded) was not bad at all and clearly the costume designer had fun with these well put together looks. Characters were perfectly made up to look suitably roughed up. I appreciate that they weren't more focused on glamor in the action scenes than grit. The writing is still what I have a problem with and that is the meat of any film. The issues I have with this film would have turned a much better book worthy of the silver screen into a silly soap opera with guns. As it stands the book even as a y.a. novel needed improvement but the film could've done well what the book did poorly, enhancing it to be even more exciting.
