The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Donald Sutherland,Philip Seymour Hoffman, and Julianne Moore. Just to get something straight I feel splitting a movie into two parts is dumb and studios do it just for more money and I find it irritating. Not every finale of a young adult novel needs to be two parts. That being said "How is Mockingjay part 1? " Is it a big step up from Catching fire? Frankly its pretty boring and basically a huge waste of time. Nothing really interesting happens in this movie. Bonding moments that don't need to happen between characters that feel pretty forced. Some dialogue and extra propaganda speeches to make the run time just a little bit longer. More characters that were throw in your face with really no character development at all. Katniss doesn't grow as a character from the last movie. Besides shooting an arrow at a jet which is shown in the trailer all Katniss really does is Propaganda Commercials and cry over things. Also all of the other characters that you already know you don't really care about them at all throughout this movie either. Really the only person you care about is Katniss kinda. Shaky cam has made a return from the first movie and isn't that why the change of director happened for the second movie? Wasn't the point to get rid of all that? I guess not. A couple of cool moments happen but that doesn't really help much. I mean the best parts of this movie were promoted in the trailer. Don't get me wrong this isn't an awful movie it's more of a very long trailer for Mockingjay part 2. What I did enjoy was all of the propaganda parts which was a nice change from all the killing in the first two movies and the last 15 minutes. A camera crew follows Katniss around to make propaganda commercials and then the capitol will fire back with their own propaganda stuff. It's a political fight. Honestly the propaganda concepts was really the only thing keeping me awake. I have to be honest I started to dose off a couple of times. The last 15 minutes it starts to build up and things start going down that makes it feel like the actual movie is fixing to start and it just ends. Kind of in the way The Desolation of Smaug did as well. Now you have to wait another year for the movie that you wanted to see in the first place. In the end i was really bored throughout this movie. This is just a waste of time to get more money out of the franchise. Even if your a fan of the novel wait till next November to see this movie so you can go see part 2 right after and pretend like part 1 doesn't exist.

The Long Anticipated Set Up MovieReviewed byNathaniel JonesVote: 4/10
Great acting from the cast; especially Jennifer Lawrence, the characters were as believable and entertaining as they were in previous films, this is pretty much the highlight of the film. The plot however was dull and uneventful, as in nothing really went anywhere. in the majority of the film there was no tension; for the most part it was basically "stuff happens in a bunker for 2 hours: The Movie." which is super disappointing because although I haven't read the books; I'm told by people that have that they skipped a bunch of the action and downplayed the apparent love triangle. If you wanted an action packed flick like the first two or you are the type of fan who doesn't like stuff in the book to be left out, you will be sorely disappointed as this is clearly a filler movie to get some extra $$$ before the series ends. wait for DVD.
I had never heard the term "set-up movie" before today. There has definitely been a trend of splitting up a story into multiple movies. These movies don't have a beginning-middle-end the same way other movies do but at the very least there's some progress. The problem with the Mockingjay Pt 1 is not that it's boring or poorly made. In fact, there is a lot of excitement in this movie. The problem is that from beginning to end there is hardly anything that changes. If you look at where the characters are in the beginning and where they are in the end there isn't much that's changed except for what happens in the very end. Katniss has been doing things but we haven't seen much of the effects of her actions. I didn't dislike this movie that much despite it's slow beginning. I just can't give this my seal of approval when I left the theater feeling like I saw half a movie. By the time the story gets its payoff my memory of this movie will be worn-off.
