Did You Know?

Trivia

Natalie Dormer ad-libbed 20-30 percent of her scenes, especially when Cressida instructs Finnick and the twins where to stand before filming his speech. When asked how she did that impromptu act, Dormer said that she drew inspiration by paying attention to how Francis Lawrence would converse with his camera crew in-between takes. See more »

Goofs

During the raid at the end, Katniss said she never asked to be in the Hunger Games. While it can be argued that she didn't ask to be in the Reaping (since that part was compulsory), one of the most iconic scenes in the series is her volunteering to be in the games so her sister doesn't have to be.

Quotes

[first lines]
Katniss Everdeen: [speaking softly] 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.

Is there such thing as a set-up movie?
21 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

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.
