Mockingjay Part 1- Movie Review
I have always loved the Hunger Game books... way before they were movies. Such a great series. The movies are great as well which makes me so happy! There is nothing worse then your favorite books becoming terrible movies. It should be obvious from the title that there is another movie coming... so of course this one ended in a cliff hanger. So we'll have to wait another year before seeing the next film! ERRRRrrr.. yes I know what happens but I still want to see the whole thing.
The movie is very different then the other two. This is because of course we don't get an arena in this movie. It all takes place in District 13. The movie has a stealth scene like I am in the middle of a video game, Katniss taking down some jets with her bow and arrow, and some other action is still in this film. We get the love triangle in this movie.. it's done pretty well. This movie is more of a commentary on what is going on in the world and does a great job fleshing out characters. I am only disappointed that Woody Harelson's character wasn't featured more in this film.
I did really enjoy this movie... I didn't see it in IMAX because I really didn't feel like this movie was worth IMAX prices. I think it was just fine on the normal screen. It does make me want to re-read these books. Be sure to come back... in a YEAR to see my review of part 2. Did you go and see the movie? What did you think?
