Hunger Games MockingJay dives right in very shortly after the last movie. It also does nothing to recap the last movie either so if it has been a while, you may want to refresh your memory. There are a couple scenes that do remind us of what made Katniss great. I love that they did that. I hate flashbacks and re caps. GIve me a new story and give it to me right away.
MockingJay delivers. It is also interesting to see Katniss caught between two factions. She is not entirely sold on District 13’s policies. She is more focused on protecting her family and trying to save Peeta.
Katniss has a great new outfit designed by Sinna (Kurt and Bart costume designers) She wears it in his honor.
After the devastation of District 12 where only 915 of 10000 survive Katniss is determined to play a part in the revolution. What part remains to be seen.
She is being manipulated as much by District 13 as Peeta is by the Capitol.
We see characters old and new, battle scenes, heart tugging scenes and more. Katniss even gets some new James Bond weapons.
It is a race to rescue the victors trapped at the Capitol. Snow played excellently again by Sutherland, is just as evil as ever. Remember this is just part one. The ending is not exactly a cliffhanger, but it does leave you wanting to know what happens next.
