The day arrived!!
The movie started yesterday evening. They had a marathon of the previous movies and the premiere of the new one. I missed that. But nobody could keep me away today. I went to the 11 AM showing.
But I’m not partial. I’m an ardent fan of this trilogy … even more sore after reading the books. I think that the acting, imagery, costumes, production and action is excellent. But then again, I’m not partial. I found this third installment to be a bit “dark” but it went along with the plot and the story line.
The Hunger Games is a 2008 science fiction novel by the American writer Suzanne Collins. It is written in the voice of 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, who lives in the post-apocalyptic nation of Panem in North America.
The Capitol, a highly advanced metropolis, exercises political control over the rest of the nation. The Hunger Games are an annual event in which one boy and one girl aged 12–18 from each of the twelve districts surrounding the Capitol are selected by lottery to compete in a televised battle to the death.
The Hunger Games takes place in a nation known as Panem, established in North America after the destruction of the continent’s civilization by an unknown apocalyptic event. The nation consists of the wealthy Capitol and twelve surrounding, poorer districts united under the Capitol’s control. District 12, where the book begins, is located in the coal-rich region that was formerly known as Appalachia.
As punishment for a past rebellion against the Capitol, in which a 13th district was destroyed, one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 from each district are selected by an annual lottery to participate in the Hunger Games, an event in which the participants (or “tributes”) must fight to the death in an outdoor arena controlled by the Capitol, until only one individual remains.
The story is narrated by 16-year-old Katniss Everdeen, a girl from District 12 who volunteers for the 74th annual Hunger Games in place of her younger sister, Primrose. The male tribute chosen from District 12 is Peeta Mellark, a former schoolmate of Katniss who once gave her bread from his family’s bakery when her family was starving.
This time around, Katniss is the focus of a mass rebellion against the Capitol in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1 and things are about to get crazy. We’ve seen a series of teaser trailers that show President Snow (Donald Sutherland) in mid-propaganda speech when District 13 abruptly interrupts with a threat that the Mockingjay is back!
Everyone is rallying around our heroine to lead the rebellion. Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman) is convinced everyone will follow Katniss, since she is the symbol of the Mockingjay, but District 13′s President Coin (Julianne Moore) isn’t so sure.
“No else can do this but her,” Plutarch declares. He’s right.
President Snow threatens that any symbols of the Mockingjay is forbidden and his men and the rebel forces go head-to-head in deadly, action-packed-battles.
