For all its obvious smarts and mildly provocative ideas, Mockingjay doesn’t seem to trust its audience quite as much as it clearly trusts its heroine.

With measure and muscle, Lawrences Jennifer and Francis nail the job of selling the long, twisting road towards revolution.

While it definitely takes its foot off the action, Mockingjay – Part 1 goes deeper and darker.

The special effects are limp and the script a little creaky, although somehow it still manages to thrill.

Unfortunately, Mockingjay — Part 1 has all the personality of an industrial film.

The drama and tone are powerful and effective and Lawrence makes an exceptionally charismatic heroine, but an almost total lack of action means this is less catching fire than treading water.

Movie endings split into two movies. Argh... The glamour of the previous movies has gone. Bleakness reigns supreme. There were some tense moments but not enough. I did so want to enjoy this - but it left me empty.

This was a really slow film and I found myself wondering how much longer until the credits a few times. I wanted to like it, but it just seemed to serve as an intro for the next film. It's put me off watching part 2.

A good, solid setup for the final installment and the best of the Hunger Games movies so far but did J Law overact much? Far out...calm down!

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...

what will come next? it seemes like this film was trying to hint at more but there is onkly three books in the tirlogy? I liked to watch it for Jennifer Lawrence because she is amazing but I started to think there was not much to this story line anymore and the makers of the movies just want to make more and more of money.

Oh man, I wanted to like this but it was too cheesy. I really dislike the name 'mockingjay' and found the acting to be way over the top. The plot was stretched to capacity too. Just stop making these now please.

Not the best part of the series, lets hope the final battle is more believable than the book. This part of the final story sets up the revolution, which occurs in part two.

Hunger Games - Mocking Jay PT1 I thoroughly enjoyed this & after leaving my thoughts of reading the books at the door, managed to emerge myself easily, cry and laugh with Katniss, Peeta, Gale and the others... This one is darker and I do believe we are all going deeper into the rabbit hole. The growing up of the characters and cast, I can only imagine how...

Ok so let me first say I love JLaw, I think she was amazing in a Winters Bone and her portrayal of Katniss in the first movie was pretty spot on( and yes I have read the books), BUT I have to say she was far from great in this movie, there were bits that her acting was so off the mark it wasn't funny, it was as if she was trying too hard. A perfect example...
