The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part One - What You Need To Know
We’re halfway through the final chapter of one of the beloved film series to emerge in decades, but where do we find Katniss and the gang ahead of the film’s release on DVD and Blu-Ray on Monday (March 16th)? Here’s what you need to know about The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part One…
What’s the plot?
After destroying the arena and pretty much putting an end to The Hunger Games forever, Katniss Everdeen is now holed up in District 13 with her fellow rebels. Recuperating from the horrors of the arena, she is introduced to President Alma Coin, who tells her that her actions have sparked mass rebellion in the Capitol, but they want to do more, they want her to be the face of the rebellion, to be their Mockingjay. But is she willing? And how will she rescue Peta? Her dear friend who is being held captive by the Capitol and President Snow. All this must be sorted…
Who’s in it?
Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland and Jena Malone reprise their roles from the previous movies. They are joined by the newly Oscar winning Julianne Moore, who plays Alma Coin, President of the Rebels, and Game Of Thrones’ Natalie Dormer, who plays Cressida, the director charged with making Katniss the face of the rebellion.
Does it deliver?
Much as this film serves as the appetiser for the epic finale that will come with Part Two, it works very nicely on its own and ends on one mighty cliffhanger.
The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part One is released on DVD and Blu-Ray on Monday (March 16th). The second instalment will be released into cinemas on November 20th this year.
