After the last scene, the first Hunger Games logo, followed by the Catching Fire and Mockingjay - Part 1 logos, lead to the bird breaking out of the ring showing the Part 2 logo. The screen goes black, we hear the whistle, and the credits roll. See more »
I have been a Hunger Games fan for as long as I can remember and this movie was a perfect book to movie adaptation. It included every important aspect and detail, and even went more in depth than the book did.
I was amazed with Jennifer Lawrence's acting, it was convincing and real seeing that she has gone through 2 hunger games and now is suffering with PTSD. People need to remember that Katniss is not supposed to be this strong, fearless leader, she is a 17 year old girl suffering with PTSD and only wants to save her love from torture.
I thought all the action scenes were intense and visually stunning, everything looked real and made you want to sit on the edge of your seat. I was very impressed by the CGI effects.
As for Peeta, I think that Josh Hutcherson did a phenomenal job capturing his character. He's so different from the Peeta we saw before, and to see him deteriorate slowly through out the movie made my heart ache. The last scenes of the movie were well acted, and I think that Josh captured Peeta perfectly as a victim of the capitols hijacking.
Everything about this movie was so well done, the acting, the characters, the visuals, I could go on and on.
For those who are disappointed that there wasn't enough action, that's not what it was mainly about. There's more to this movie than that. Katniss' character is severely depressed and has PTSD, so to expect her to be this incredibly strong heroine is unrealistic. There's so much more to this movie than the action scenes, and if you fail to see that then this is not the movie for you.
I cannot wait for Part 2, I think it might even be better than part 1, but it's hard to top.
