DUMB! I know that this was the first of two movies and I SHOULD have waited until the second movie came out. But NOTHING happens in this movie. Granted, nothing happens in this part of the book either... Read more and just when it starts to get all good, PAUSE for next blockbuster movie. Sigh. Why would you punish us soooooooo
I enjoyed the characters in this and the mind games being played. It would have been good to have a bit more development of their relationships, as I thought the 'Peeta/Katniss' thing got a bit tedious... Read more - she wasn't as strong as I'd hoped, but I realise that's part of the story. However, Julianne Moore was excellent and the other 'senior' actors their usual skillful selves. Seymour Hoffman - such a great actor.
I started watching this after a long break from watching the previous 2 movies. So I could not pick up what had happened in the story and where it was now going, which made the plot confusing for me... Read more personally. So I decided to stop watching this one and firstly catch up on the first 2 again, and then hire this one again.
Great first installment of Mockingjay movie. Find out heaps more of the story, behind the scenes etc. Great action and intrigue, well worth the watch :-)
The whole point of this part 1 is to set the scene for the finale; which is so much more appreciated in the books. Unfortunately this movie doesn't quite carry it off, and its quite boring and "backgroundy"... Read more which probably isn't appreciated by the wider audience.
BUT - it is important, and I still enjoyed seeing the rebels and district 13.
Absolutely boring! No beginning, no middle, no end. The leading role (Mockingjay) was just a wimp. Maybe we didn't get it. Or we are the wrong age.
yeah not that great for another movie in this franchise , been a while since I saw the last 2 which were great , so no real beginning nor conclusion just all middle with this one - odd really
Displays the emotional loss and heartbreak of Katniss. A few action moments, but didn't live up to the hype of the second film of the series as I thought it would. It actually looks like they cut their... Read more budget for the filming of this one. A little disappointed, but hoping the 4th film reigns it all together. And LOVE Lorde's soundtrack hit song for this movie "Yellow Flicker Beat" :)
