The most successful YA-based film franchise (since that last successful YA-based film franchise of which we do not speak) returns with this grand finale(ish)!

Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has gone from The Girl on Fire, the darling of The Hunger Games, to the living symbol of revolution! At least, the movie says it wants a revolution but well, you know, Katniss also has this whole boyfriend/love triangle thing to sort out that’s super complicated and OMG!

Unusual Suspects, and previous district champions Brian, Chris, and J.C. gather in their underground bunker to breakdown this highly anticipated flick. Will the film suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous…outrage, or will Mockingjay avoid all mockery whatsoever? Give a listen to this Highly Suspect Review and find out; odds are in your favor that you’ll at least come away with a chuckle or two.
