Movie Review – The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1

by Francis Lawrence

‘Katniss Everdeen is in District 13 after she shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta and a nation moved by her courage.’ (IMDb) (by Francis Lawrence, 123 min.)

I wan’t really impressed by this movie. I must say that this wasn’t my favorite book either. The entire first part of the book was just so uneventful and a lot of talking, what this movie also was. The few bits of action we get to see are such a small part of the story that the rest is just so long.

We get to see how they try to turn Katniss in the image of the revolution, of which she wants no part. We get to see a part of her that we didn’t see before. For the first time in the movies she didn’t have to fight in the games, but she is stuck in a foreign place with people she doesn’t know.

I have the feeling that this entire movie was just a build-up for something bigger, that we didn’t see yet. I’m certain that the next movie will be full of action again and more like we know of the Hunger Games.

3,5 out of 5 stars… I didn’t love it, but it was still an interesting story.
