Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1

Description: When Katniss destroys the games, she goes to District 13 after District 12 is destroyed. She meets President Coin who convinces her to be the symbol of rebellion, while trying to save Peeta from the Capitol.

I'm a Jennifer Lawrence fan and I really wanted to say this movie was over the top fantastic but for me it was just good. I enjoyed it and was happy I saw it but it wasn't this spectacular movie I would say you need to rush out and see.

For me, the first movie The Hunger Games is much the same. Good but not a movie to rush out and see or own. The problem for me lies in the second movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. This movie blew my mind and I started thinking not only did I need the first one but I just had to own the second movie too.

However, that feeling didn't extend to Mockingjay Part One. I suspect as only the beginning of the final story it is going to be the part you love the least and Part Two will again bring me to that point of a must have movie.

While I'm not always a fan of distopian stories, The Hunger Games appears to be a well thought out and powerful story (which makes me now want to actually read the books). Jennifer Lawrence was the best choice for Katniss as she brings and wonderful emotional power to the role. The righteousness and honesty of the character really shines through Lawrence.

Josh Hutcherson was amazing in this installment as Peeta who has been captured by the capitol. The CGI used in this film is amazing and extremely realistic.

We finally got to see more of Liam Hemsworth as Gale in this installment which has justified my love of the character and my team choice.

Overall a good movie. If you are a fan, it is worth seeing. If you can wait, just save your movie for the rental.

Disclaimer: This is just my opinion and you may very well love/hate the movie. To each their own.
