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.
As the war of Panem escalates to the destruction of other districts, Katniss Everdeen, the reluctant leader of the rebellion, must bring together an army against President Snow, while all she holds dear hangs in the balance.
Katniss Everdeen voluntarily takes her younger sister's place in the Hunger Games: a televised competition in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to fight to the death.
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
Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Donald Sutherland and Jena Malone all appeared in the movie, "Cold Mountain (2003)". See more »
Gale claimed that District 12 was completely destroyed and no longer exists. Yet the "Victor's Village" houses (including where Katniss and her family moved to following her victory in the Hunger Games) are more or less unscathed and untouched. See more »
Start simple. Start with that you know is true. My name is Katniss Everdeen. My home is District 12. I was in the Hunger Games. I escaped. Peeta... Peeta was left behind.

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 »
Like watching paint dry. Boring to a mind-numbing degree. How many
times can we see Katniss be horrified and/or emotionally distraught?
Maybe the filmmakers thought they were adding depth to their
characters. Well, they were wrong. Instead we, the audience, sit
through one scene after another in which really nothing happens at all.
This whole thing could have easily been compressed down to 40 minutes
and then we could have had the rest of the book as the rest of the
film. This felt very much like they were stretching it out so they
could make two movies - which is the new thing to do in Hollywood with
these franchises. Not good storytelling.
