If you're a fan of the books, or if you liked the first movie, you're obviously going to go watch this movie, if you haven't already. But let me tell you, as much as the books were an emotional roller coaster ride, they don't quite compare to when you're watching it all happen on the big screen.
This movie is pretty epic in its own right, but not as much as the first one. Instead, it focuses more on setting the stage for the real battle. It has a lot of action towards the end, but you'll have to wait through about an hour or so of pure character-driven story; which isn't a bad thing. The actors really bring their A-Game to this movie, especially Jennifer Lawrence. And the special effects really made the world in this movie pop.
Personally, I feel this movie was a bit dark and depressing for the kids, or the kids at heart. But then, it is a part of the series, so I guess the little ones will have to sit through it if they want to find out what happens at the end.
