Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) awakens to find herself in a hospital in District 13.
We learn that District 13 survived the Capital’s onslaught, years ago, by going underground. We also learn that they are warriors and that they have stored massive amounts of advanced weaponry. They are just waiting for the right time to attack the Capital.
Now is the right time…..and Katniss is their symbol of rebellion…..their “Mockingjay”…..their hope to unite the Districts in battle.
But Katniss is worried about Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) who is being held, tortured, and used as the spokesperson against rebellion, in the Capital. She is not the feisty, defiant, Katniss we know.
Something has to change or someone else has to become the “Mockingjay”.
Visiting District 12 and seeing the devastation of her home District brings Katniss back to reality, then she visits District 8 and witnesses first hand the brutality of the Capital.
She vows to symbolize the fight. And fight they do……then Part 1 ends.
“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1” is the beginning of the end of the trilogy. I did not read the third book, as I was told it was worse than book #2 and that one sucked. Overall….the movies are much much better than the books.
Go to IMDb for more information. We watched this on Blu-Ray.
