21 Changes The 'Hunger Games' Finale Makes From The Novel As for how Mockingjay, Part 2 is different from the book, exactly, let me be. In Book vs. Movie, we look at novels of any genre and compare them to their feature-film adaptation. This will not be a review of the merits of. The Hunger Games franchise has finally come to an end with Mockingjay Part 2, which covers roughly the second half of the final book in the.
Photo: Lionsgate In the book, when Katniss wants to go to the Capitol to join the fight and end the revolution, Coin flatly denies her because she is not a trained soldier. So Katniss and Joanna go through basic training like all the other rebels Katniss fights with a gun instead of her bow and arrow here, too.
Katniss passes but Johanna's physical condition doesn't. Katniss is then sent to the Capitol with the PR squad. But in the movie, Katniss actually sneaks away to the Capitol, and thus skips any kind of training.
Johanna's involvement is never even discussed, although she does help Katniss sneak away. Katniss doesn't kill a Capitol civilian The sewer battle is stunning, but it's missing its ending.
Both the book and the movie hammer home the idea that the revolutionaries are not necessarily better than the Capitol. There are also lots of expository moments watering down the more complicated plot points for moviegoers not super familiar with the books: Here's a breakdown of the differences you'll maybe notice even when you're all caught up in Peeta's pouting, and there will also be Peeta GIFs just because: This is presumably to remind everyone of how much a good person Prim is, before, you know….
Gale acts like even more of a fuckboi than usual.
In the aftermath of that whole District 2 mine-bombing scene , we cut to the Capitol with President Snow hosting an extravagant dinner for his faves. Antonius in the books, but none of this otherwise. There I said it. After rebel forces destroy the Capitol's weapons supply in District 2 , with a plan developed by Gale and Beetee Latier Jeffrey Wright , Katniss shoots a propo as the District 2 refugees are cornered and forced to surrender by the rebels.
When she attempts to intervene in the situation and prevent further bloodshed, a fight breaks out, during which Katniss is shot. Meanwhile, President Coriolanus Snow Donald Sutherland rebukes his minister Antonius for having trapped the Capitol's best troops in District Two, and kills him by poisoning. Acknowledging that the Capitol's "golden age" is coming to an end, Snow then orders his ministers to withdraw all Peacekeepers into the center of the Capitol and have the Gamemakers set up new defenses, to prepare for a bloody final stand against the rebels.
During her recovery, Katniss visits Peeta; he is recovering some of his memories but remains unstable and resentful towards Katniss, which causes her to become depressed. She approaches Coin and demands to kill Snow as her "final mission", but Coin declines in favor of preserving Katniss as the symbol of their revolution.
Sneaking aboard, Katniss is welcomed by the rebels, to Coin's irritation. However, they discover that their mission is to trail behind the invasion and be the onscreen face of the rebellion. They use a holographic map called a Holo to evade "pods" booby traps created by Gamemakers which line the streets of the Capitol; Finnick cynically compares the pods to an arena by remarking "Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to the 76th Hunger Games.
Peeta is unexpectedly assigned to the team by Coin despite still being vulnerable to the Capitol's conditioning.
Boggs warns Katniss to be careful around him, because Coin sees Katniss as a potential threat to her authority, and may have placed Peeta on the team to indirectly eliminate her. Katniss initially acts hostile towards Peeta, but eventually they begin to open up to one another, as she realizes he has trouble telling real memories from hijacked ones.
As the squad and camera crew venture deeper into the Capitol, they are ambushed by an unmarked pod that fatally injures Boggs; he transfers command of the unit to Katniss before dying, telling her to "do what you came here to do". Another pod is triggered, which releases a flood of black ooze. Peeta's hijacking drives him to attack Katniss again, during which he pushes Mitchell Joe Chrest into the ooze but Finnick restrains him long enough for the squad to evade the ooze and escape into a building.
With Boggs dead and command passed down to her, Katniss lies and tells her squad that she is under orders from Coin to kill Snow.
They are forced to leave behind the Leeg twins Misty Ormiston and Kim Ormiston as one of the twins was injured; as they take shelter in another building, Peacekeepers bombard their former hideout, killing the twins. The Capitol broadcasts a message with Snow and Caesar Flickerman Stanley Tucci celebrating the supposed deaths of Squad and the Mockingjay, but Beetee hijacks the signal mid-broadcast, allowing Coin to introduce herself to Panem and declare Katniss a martyr for the rebel cause.
As they are still far from Snow's mansion, the team decides to venture into the Capitol's sewers in order to avoid the pods, using Pollux Elden Henson as a guide, since he used to work in the underground.
Peeta, remorseful over Mitchell's death, believes he should die rather than endanger the rest of the squad again, but admits to Katniss that his memories are becoming clearer. Snow, discovering Katniss is still alive, unleashes a pack of monstrous reptilian muttations to hunt her down. As the squad attempts to flee the sewers, a mutt grabs Finnick as he covers their retreat, forcing Katniss to use the Holo's self-destruct to end his suffering and destroy the remaining mutts.
They are attacked by Peacekeepers after reaching the underground railways, during which another pod kills Messalla Evan Ross.
The few survivors eventually reach the surface and Cressida Natalie Dormer leads them to a safehouse, where a former Hunger Games stylist , Tigris Eugenie Bondurant , hides them in her basement. While they all mourn the loss of their squad, Katniss confesses that she lied about her orders to kill Snow, and as a result of her lie, the rest of the squad are dead. The squad reveal that they knew this all along, but played along because they trusted her.
Peeta comforts Katniss, saying that if she kills Snow, she will avenge the deaths of everyone who has died because of him. That night, Gale and Peeta discuss their love triangle, with Gale stating he thinks Peeta has won her over, but Peeta thinks that Gale has.
Gale eventually remarks that deciding which one she can't live without is Katniss's problem, and not theirs.
