Hey guys it’s Jamari here again with another review! Today’s movie review for The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1. As you all may have heard about the popular Hunger Games franchise which has been produced by Lionsgate, and due to the trend nowadays where the last book in a franchise is being split into two movies which is what Harry Potter, The Twilight Saga, and now The Divergent Series is doing. Though the book is only 300 pages long it the first part of this two part movie is a must see!
The movie picks up exactly where Catching Fire (the preceding movie) left off where Katniss is now in District 13. She is traumatized and depressed due to her friend and lover Peeta Melark is being held and tortured inside the capitol. Throughout the movie you see her make a series propogandas to try to convince the people of Panem that the Capitol is unfair and that they should join the rebellion while she still fights to get Peeta back and away from he Capitol.
This movie was directed by Francis Lawrence who also directed the previous movie The Hunger Games: Catching Fire did an outstanding job with this movie. Though one problem that occurred in this movie is the same problem they escaped in the second movie. “Shaky Cam” which is something I disliked about the first movie due to because it was hard to focus on the movie an makes the audience dizzy trying to focus on the film. At the end of the film I’d recommend if your a hardcore fan to stay after the end credits for a sneak peek of all the Mockingjay symbols starting with the first movie, phase until it breaks free and forms into the pin or the final movie Mockingjay – Part 2
I get this movie ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️stars. Although the shaky cam was a lit annoying, Mockingjay – Part 1 is by far the best Hunger Games movie there is and I recommend you watch the film and read the series if you haven’t yet.
