The Mockingjay is here. Panem is engulfed in fire. Katniss now faces her biggest challenge yet. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 has all this and more. You are drawn into this dystopian world of the future yet again. With the last two movies in the series being exceptional, you`d think that this movie ... ...Read full review
Youre going to be the best dressed rebel in history. If the first Hunger Games movie was a rerun of Battle Royale and the second was Rollerball, then this penultimate instalment is basically Broadcast News, or even Network a spiky media satire about the making and marketing of a revolution that most definitely will be televised. Having being hoisted out of the games by anti-government forces at the end of Catching Fire, Katniss Everdeen (a typically no-nonsense Jennifer Lawrence) finds herself being fashioned as a poster girl for the uprising styled and manipulated by the underground in the same way that the Capitol once dolled her up for TV dismemberment. Clothed in combat-chic black, Katniss is directed to do her best Joan of Arc flag-waving act for the purpose of propaganda videos or propos to inspire the downtrodden people of Panem. As her new keepers assure her: Everyone is going to want to kiss you, kill you, or be you. ...Read full review
In the course of Mockingjay Part 1, however, theres an incidental jolt: Jennifer Lawrence acting badly.Lawrence has brought an unforced acting style into Hunger Games preposterous intrigues, forging a bond with an audience that remains air-tight through two films in which teenagers engage in modern gladiatorial combat for the amusement of the dystopian empire of Panem. At the end of Catching Fire, Lawrences Katniss Everdeen had become a symbol of rebellion, ending the games for President Snow (Donald Sutherland). Now in Mockingjay Part 1, shes hiding out in an underground bunker where the designers seem to have used 1984 as a style bible. ...Read full review
All is not well in Panem. At the conclusion of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Katniss`s (Jennifer Lawrence) force-field shattering arrow left the society in turmoil. The desperate act was perceived as subversion, inciting populist uprisings and devastating counter attacks by the governing elite.Thus, revolution is on the horizon in the franchise`s third installment, Mockingjay - Part 1, and it all hinges on Katniss, the unwitting face and spirit of the movement. You see, Katniss, much like the movie star actress who plays her, is just generally liked. Everything she does is slapped with meaning and significance, regardless of her intentions. She has become the property of the people.This has always been clear to Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman), who aims to use her as a propaganda machine. But there`s a problem: the girl on fire has flamed out. In the chaos that followed the conclusion of the second film, Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) was captured by the Capitol, District 12 was destroyed (though Katniss` mother, sister and the steely jawed Gale (Liam Hemsworth) escaped alive), and Katniss was taken by the militaristic District 13. Their President, Alma Coin, (franchise newcomer Julianne Moore) needs her to be their poster girl. ...Read full review
