MOVIE REVIEW: THE HUNGER GAMES - MOCKINGJAY (PART 1)



Jennifer Lawrence plays as Katniss Everdeen, duh! So 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 (Josh Hutcherson) from the Capitol. So is the movie any good or are they are merely riding on the Hunger Games hype?

THE GOOD

The movie continues directly after what happen when Katniss destroys the game. The cast and crew after many movies together, we can feel that they are comfortable with each other as the acting becomes more personal towards the cast. Other than that, we are told the back story about uprising on different district and how it all went down after Katniss awoken the rebellion. Katniss still gets you to believe that she can shoot arrows and it is shown in this particular movie. 

THE BAD

The show is a melodrama of 2 hours without getting anything back. It feels like a slow paced Korean drama at one point and also how to do Marketing with President Coin (Julianne Moore) using her as a symbol and at the same time trying to sell her as a product. I personally felt the show was way too draggy with tons of people having their own dialogue. Almost every single one person in the movie, TALKS! God damn it! STAHP already. 

CONCLUSION

After yawning 12 times, and also 1 can of Wonda coffee, I dozed off around 40 mins somewhere in the middle of the movie when she starts sobbing about things which I could not care less. I was hoping they end it here and now instead of making 2 parts which prolongs the pain. There is simply lack of action in the show as we are in it to see more explosion and arrow skills. 

TL;DR: Talk,  talk and more talk. I think you should at least watch this in your comfort of your own home.
