The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 Movie Review

The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1 (PG-13)

Length:- 2 hrs. 3 min.

"The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1" is the third installment in the film series based on the books by same by Suzanne Collins.There was something fascinating about these games that they were kind of unique from the others. Some of the rules are always hidden and even players might not be aware of them.The film series tries to create a new world with new rule like the book.Yet there was always some sort of dragging plot and missing amusements and surprises in all the part of film. We expect more, we are starving , we need some more twist and turns, we might want some more fights and action sequences.These are some of the expectations which atleast I had when i went to watch these movies. Well sometimes you don't get what you expect.The Hunger Games  world is full of sorrow and there isn't any rejoice. 

The District 13 is badly damaged so we see an obvious as expected hope from Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) for fight for them. She is  under the guidance of President Coin (Julianne Moore). All we see is the concern, sorrow and sadness from Katniss towards her boyfriend and other district members for the most part. Jennifer Lawrence is a girl here who brings something natural and realistic to her performance.Yet we might want to see a spark, a brightness and the charm in her character which we saw last time. most of the other actors also doesn't get much chance to do something apart from being guided just by their character's.

It's a film which has talks for the most part and the preparation of a battle we may never see in this part. What we see is the people who are getting kind of warm up or getting some sort of net practice for the upcoming fight. It looks like dividing the last part of the book into two films wasn't a good decision as what we see in this part has zero face value.The conversions between the rivals are made through the television which was little unrealistic.Hoffman's character was underwritten or probably not shot much due to his death. The movie is predictable and looks half cooked which may not give you the taste of the dish which you might expect.

Verdict:- Above Average

Ratings:-2.5 / 5 Stars
