I finally got to see The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, the first part of the Hunger Games' final chapter. My short impression of the movie is that if you liked the previous Hunger Games movies, you should go see Mockingjay – Part 1, because Part 2 is probably going to be all kinds of awesome. Of course, Part 1 is not perfect, and there are some problems that I will discuss in my full review tomorrow.
With that said, I watched the movie with my brother and a friend, both of whom hated the first Hunger Games, but did like Catching Fire to a degree, and they both enjoyed Mockingjay – Part 1 quite a bit.
One funny thing that happened in the theater is that when a certain unexpected moment happen, someone in the audience shouted “D*MN!” which made everyone else in the theater laugh. Although, the same guy did start to sing during the movie for a minute, which was odd, but other than that, everyone was thankfully quiet.
On a side note, if you remember by post from last year, Mockingjay filmed in my hometown, and seeing the location in the film was cool, especially since nothing like that has ever happened where I live. If you watched the movie, I am referring to the scenes in and around the hospital in the early part of the movie. You can click here to see the picture that I took of the set.
Please check back tomorrow for my review of the film.
