The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1

Jennifer Lawrence again proved why she is one of the best young actresses of today. Her haunting rendition of The Hanging Tree was amazing - better than I expected. The other actors/actresses also performed outstandingly. Although this film is on the darker side, there are still moments of humour, provided in part by Effie Trinket and Buttercup. There is a lot of content to cover in Suzzane's final book, Mockingjay, so although it seems like a convenient way for the filmakers to gain more money, the decision to make two parts is both understandable and reasonable. I have watched this movie twice now in cinemas, and would jump at the chance to watch it a third time.
