Is The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 appropriate for your teen?

Betsy is a life-long word nerd and movie lover; she's combined passions for parenting and pop culture in her position at Common Sense Media and is mom to two awesome kids.

Hunger Games is full of violence — but is it appropriate for your child?

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2 is the fourth and final installment in the adaptation of Suzanne Collins' critically and commercially acclaimed trilogy. Be prepared for intense and upsetting violence as Katniss and company revolt against the Capitol.

This film is also full of potential conversation starters about the role of media during conflict, the role of revolutionaries as symbols (rather than actual people), and how extremes on either side of a political spectrum can be equally dangerous. Learn more about Mockingjay, Part 2 in the video below and at Common Sense Media.
