Movie Info

Following her rescue from the devastating Quarter Quell, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) awakes in the complex beneath the supposedly destroyed District 13. Her home, District 12, has been reduced to rubble, and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) is now the brainwashed captive of President Snow (Donald Sutherland). At the same time, Katniss also learns about a secret rebellion spreading throughout all of Panem -- a rebellion that will place her at the center of a plot to turn the tables on Snow.

    Monkingjay Part 1 seems to be a placeholder for the final movie. It is OK; Katniss is still saving the day, and President Snow is still that bad guy, but this movie seems to fall short on content.

    "The Hunger Games: MockingJay - Part 1" is an okay movie. The acting in this movie is good. The plot is okay. The suspense in this movie is amazing. Although there are some points in this movie where nothing much is going on. Towards the end of this movie, "The Hunger Games: MockingJay - Part 1" starts to get really exciting. The ending wasn't that interesting. I am excited to see the finale movie "The Hunger Games: MockingJay - Part 2" coming out soon. I agree with rottentomatoes.com and give "The Hunger Games: MockingJay - Part 1" a 6.5/10.

    It's rare when a movie is better than the book. Mockingjay Part 1 proves to be an excellent film with stunning performance and complex plot. The political subtext was way better played than the book, making it an important piece of gem to show the problems with both fascism and communism.

    Because its the set up piece to the exciting conclusion, it's the least of the first three films with less moderate action and very talky. The acting is still good enough to make you watch the film and I am more than ready to see the story conclude this November. Lawrence is least interesting character in this round but Moore, Hoffman, Harrelson and Banks all have good moments. 05-03-2015
