Katniss Everdeen is in District 13 after she shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta and a nation moved by her courage.
Katniss Everdeen voluntarily takes her younger sister's place in the Hunger Games, a televised fight to the death in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to compete.
In a world divided by factions based on virtues, Tris learns she's Divergent and won't fit in. When she discovers a plot to destroy Divergents, Tris and the mysterious Four must find out what makes Divergents dangerous before it's too late.
With the Games destroyed, Katniss Everdeen, along with Gale, Finnick and Beetee, end up in the so thought "destroyed" District 13. Under the leadership of President Coin and the advice of her friends, Katniss becomes the "Mockingjay", the symbol of rebellion for the districts of Panem. Written by
While many people think the characters Castor and Pollux are related to Face Off, starring Nicolas Cage and John Travolta, the names are actually taken from Greek Mythology. They are twin brothers that are transformed into the constellation Gemini. See more »
At one point, Katniss and Gale are shooting down airplanes with explosive arrows. In this scene, Gale is standing on Katniss' left. Later on in the movie, the moment of Katniss shooting down a plane is shown in one of the 'propo's', and seems to be filmed from her right. However, Gale (who from this point of view should be just behind Katniss) is nowhere to be seen. It's also unclear how this scene made the propo because no one from the film crew (Castor and Pollux) was present at the moment Katniss and Gale shot down the planes, so there was no one to film it.

I never wanted any of this, I never wanted to be in the Games, I just wanted to save my sister and keep Peeta alive.

I had never heard the term "set-up movie" before today. There has definitely been a trend of splitting up a story into multiple movies. These movies don't have a beginning-middle-end the same way other movies do but at the very least there's some progress.
The problem with the Mockingjay Pt 1 is not that it's boring or poorly made. In fact, there is a lot of excitement in this movie. The problem is that from beginning to end there is hardly anything that changes. If you look at where the characters are in the beginning and where they are in the end there isn't much that's changed except for what happens in the very end. Katniss has been doing things but we haven't seen much of the effects of her actions.
I didn't dislike this movie that much despite it's slow beginning. I just can't give this my seal of approval when I left the theater feeling like I saw half a movie. By the time the story gets its payoff my memory of this movie will be worn-off.
