Personally I hated the book also, it seemed like it was written by a fan and that the author didn't know how to finish the series so she killed everyone. The movie was incredibly boring to watch and I was so uninterested I actually fell asleep so I had to re-watch it to see if it got better. It didn't. I will say though part 2 was significantly better, but again the story-line just seemed like she was writing to whatever would give the biggest reaction/or please the fans the most.
The first of a pointless break up of the final book. The film itself is gripping but suffers from poor pacing and can drag at times. It is made clear from its sequel that this should have been one larger movie rather than two separate ones.
This film is exactly what it needs to be, and it is extremely underrated. It is not dull, it is dark, gritty, emotional, captivating. Every scene is filled with such raw emotion. Besides from the District 8 scene, everything is directed wonderfully.
I haven't been very fond of the earlier films in this franchise. It's not that I thought they were terrible films, but they felt like attempts to take pulpy, frothy material and make extremely serious and self-important films out of it (which I guess is exactly what they were). Like Christopher Nolan's Batman films, they had all the fun sucked out of them and went on way too long. While nothing has particularly changed when it comes to this film ... if anything, it's egregiously longer since it's only half a film ... something seems to have clicked for me and I found myself enjoying it. Maybe the addition of Julianne Moore made the film hit a sort of talented actor critical mass for me. Anyway, I'm not dreading watching Part 2.
Infinitely better then "Catching Fire'm this has Katniss reluctantly becoming the head of the rebel alliance who tries to overthrow the capitol. At least this had more of a coherent story, and makes me wonder what will happen next in the story.
Ugh. What a mess. There are fine performances but this series takes itself way too seriously. There are better movies that have better social commentary out there, and I don't get why people hold this series in such high regard.
Mockingjay Part 2 was very disappointing to me. It had great action throughout, but becomes scattered all over the place with an anticlimactic ending. I can see the message that this film tries to talk about, but that message drifts away from me after I finished this film.
