The other Hunger Games films were action packed as they took place during the Hunger Games, but Mockingjay does not feature any Hunger Games competition. Instead, they are in the middle of a war, but most of the movie is drama. This movie, unlike the other two in the trilogy, focuses on the emotional effects of this war, showing a different side of Katniss and the other characters. One CMHS student tweeted after seeing the movie saying, "mockingjay was truly inspiring." It is still an intense movie with incredible performances by all the actors, especially Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen). It's nice to see a strong female leading role. Overall this movie is sad, intense, and unexpected for the fans who have not read the book.
The movie starts right after Katniss and Finnick were rescued from the games and are now living as guests with the others in District 13. Finnick is depressed about the games and his separation from his love, Annie. Katniss is convinced to become the face of the revolution, the Mockingjay.
