“Join The Mockingjay. Join The Fight.”
Finally, I get to see this movie. AT LAST!! And the bonus is I got to see it on the big screen. I almost forgot how great it is watching a movie in the theater ehee..
Well, let’s just say I haven’t read the book yet. Hell, I even haven’t read all the books since the first Hunger Games (sorry, Ms. Collins). But, for me is a treat so I can enjoy the movie with the suspenses, surprises, and all.
Mockingjay, according to wiki, is “the hybrid bird that is an important symbol—of hope and rebellion—throughout the books”. Collins likens Katniss to a Mockingjay because both “should never have existed”.
Mockingjay is the final installment of The Hunger Games trilogy which is separated into two parts, just like Twilight and Harry Potter. In this third movie (and the final one), we won’t see Katniss trying to survive in the games, but being a symbol of rebellion instead. It’s getting complicated when she finds out Peeta is being captured by the Capitol.
Like I said before, I haven’t read the books, but I really enjoy the movie. Not to mention Jennifer Lawrence can portrays Katniss with her emotional conflicts and her bravery to fight against the Capitol. For those of you who expect to see Gale more often, you get your wish in this movie. Even I have to say, Gale is pretty much in this one from the beginning until the end. It’s just Liam Hemsworth could’ve done better. Josh Hutcherson is beyond my expectation. I mean, I know the storyline and what would happen to Peeta (thanks to wiki), but watching it comes to life by Josh is beyond words. Director Francis Lawrence still doesn’t lose his touch. Actions, dramas, and the special effects, I love it all! Don’t forget Julianne Moore. After watching her in Map of The Stars, she gives another image of President Alma Coin. And of course, the mention of the late Philip Seymour Hoffman in the credit title gives bittersweet moment.
I must say this one and The Maze Runner are the best young adult movies for this year. Oh, and don’t forget ‘The Hanging Tree’ sang by Katniss; it’s really memorable for me. Jennifer Lawrence indeed has amazing voice. She could think to become a singer someday.
