Review: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, 2014, dir. Francis Lawrence


“How do you review half a movie? Do you just write half of a review? Maybe that’s the right thing to do. Maybe it’s the only intelligent thing to do. But just maybe, nobody should blame The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 1, the latest victim of Hollywood’s desire to bleed dry literary adaptations by dragging them out hours longer than necessary. If anything, the film need only be held accountable for being staunchly mediocre. It’s a prologue without an epilogue, an introduction without a conclusion, 120 minutes of setup without a proper climax. In other words, it’s a drag.” (Via Paste Magazine.)
