Review : The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1


“When Katniss destroys the games, she goes to District 13 after District 12 is destroyed. She meets President Coin who convinces her to be the symbol of rebellion, while trying to save Peeta from the Capitol.”

Well, well, well….This movie though. This movie is one hell of an emotion and psychological hook. It totally draws you in to the the Panem world and everything about it. You feel for each and every character and what they have had to do to get the places they do, and you want to see more of each. Everything about this movie is done to the highest level. It is visually and emotional superb. The acting here is also world class. All of these are reasons why this movie is going to make a hell of a lot of money. All of these positives however, lead into the big downfall this movie, and that is that this is most definitely a part 1 of 2. It feels like this movie was made solely to make sure as many people as possible go to see Part 2. On a whole it is a big departure from the previous 2 films as it is the first to not have to center around the actual hunger games. The lack of that big central action piece changes the entire flow and feeling of the movie from what we would have come to expect. That doesn’t mean the movie is boring in anyway. Any missing action here is substituted for nail biting tension and strong emotional battles. All in all this is a the second best movie of the franchise, leading up to what should be a truly epic finale.

Review Score : 9 out of 10
