The beginning of the movie is set in District 13, which was supposed to have vanished, as believed in the first 2 films. Hunger Games winner Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence), who has been saved by the aforementioned district, is getting ready to lead the revolution against the Capitol. Only issue is, the ennemies have taken her friend Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) as a hostage. Katniss is the only hope of freedom that the people of Panem have left. Will she live up to their expectations? Could she save them from President Snow and his army once and for all? Luckily, she knows she could always count on her many allies, among whom Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth) and Finnick Odair (Sam Claflin).
Even better than the 2 previous movies, Mockingjay (Part I) is an ode to freedom, and a beautiful exemple of people coming together to fight their dictator. A real inspiration nowadays, especially with all the revolutions happening worldwide.
"The Hunger Games" is full of plot twists, so the storyline is really captivating. Watch out for the ending - it is completely unexpected!
