The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 Summary

Katniss Everdeen reluctantly becomes the symbol of a mass rebellion against the autocratic Capitol.

Richard Roeper

A solid lead-up to the finale.

Christy Lemire

It's an elaborate game of hurry-up-and-wait. And it's the most shameless example yet of splitting the final book in a hugely popular series into two film adaptations.

Christopher Orr

Might it have been better if they'd squeezed the whole book into one movie? Probably. Nonetheless, Mockingjay Part 1 is a fine entertainment, shot through with moments of surprising emotional impact.

Matt Zoller Seitz

Jennifer Lawrence's charisma and the the sly excellence of her supporting cast keep "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1" aloft.

Wesley Morris

Mockingjay has more exposition than a TED Talk, more rubble than a decade of The Flintstones, and absolutely no nonmonetary reason to be Part 1 of anything. It isn't storytelling. It's a filibuster.
