An entire film as a prelude, MOCKINGJAY: PART 1 is very much a single act film, missing any real story progression or resolution. As a tease leading into its final chapter, it offers very little, as essentially - very little actually happens in the film. Combined with its second part, MOCKINGJAY may ignite into a triumph, but in its own state - it remains kindle.
Lacking exposition or any real emotional punch, THE GIVER is brisk and unfulfilling, never reaching the potential of its hefty ideas. While a visual delight - through its mixture of grayscale and colour film - everything else under its skin is bland and tepid.
