    A fun heist flick, but a bit thin on plot.

    The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 2015

    ★★★ Watched 30 Mar, 2016

    The least interesting film of the series, I think. Felt more like a series of set-pieces with only cursory attention paid to character development.

    Fun as an action film, but a bit of a let-down.

    Mediocre film, but Affleck was the bomb.

    Meh. There was an episode of Leverage a few years ago that was very similar, and was actually better.

    This might have worked better if, like Thank You For Smoking, the film had stuck to its guns. Instead we get a frame story about a blonde lady trying to be the conscience of Latin America...
