Katniss Everdeen voluntarily takes her younger sister's place in the Hunger Games, a televised fight to the death in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to compete.
The final Twilight Saga begins with Bella now a vampire learning to use her abilities. And happy to see her daughter, Renesmee is flourishing. But when someone sees Renesmee do something that makes them think that she was turned. This person goes to the Volturi, because it is a violation to turn a child. And the penalty is death for both who turned the child into a vampire and the child, cause they deem a turned child too dangerous. Alice gets a vision of the Volturi coming after them. So the Cullens try to convince them that Renesmee is not a threat. So they ask friends and family to come stand with them. But when someone who has it in for the Volturi shows up and tells them they should be ready for a fight. And they get ready. Written by
I'm no longer a young adult - I'm quite elderly, in fact. But I have to admit I loved the book series upon which this movie franchise is based. And I have been tolerant of the 4 movies leading up to this final one, mostly because they have been pretty faithful to what I felt were the important points of the story lines. Even though the acting skills of the major characters have been sad throughout, I have been able to blame that mostly on poor direction and I could find much otherwise to enjoy. But in this final movie of the series, I just feel let down by everyone involved with it: director, actors, script-writers, special effects people, casting, producers (yes, Stephanie Meyer herself is included here!). It had been a long time since I felt cheated out of the price of a movie ticket, but I really regret wasting not only $8 for this one, but also the seemingly interminable 2 hours I lost trying to find some redeeming value while sitting through it. For a fantasy story about vampires, werewolves, and half-mortals, there was nothing remotely believable in this movie. I know nothing of making movies, but I think I could have come up with something better than this, and for a lot less money.
