Jennifer Lawrence reprises her role as Katniss Everdeen in the third instalment of the sci-fi film series based on the novels by Suzanne Collins. In the aftermath of the 75th Hunger Games, Katniss finds herself in the underground District 13, struggling to adjust to her new life and role as the 'Mockingjay' in the rebellion against the Capitol and tyrannical ruler President Snow (Donald Sutherland). Meanwhile, her friend and fellow Games victor Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson) is in the hands of the Capitol, where he is tortured and brainwashed. Katniss soon realises that to save the ones she loves she will have to join the revolt, led by President Coin (Julianne Moore), and become a symbol of hope for the rebels. With help from her friends and allies, including Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth), Haymitch Abernathy (Woody Harrelson), Effie Trinket (Elizabeth Banks) and Plutarch Heavensbee (Philip Seymour Hoffman), Katniss sets out to bring down the Capitol and President Snow once and for all.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1Claire Milne-Smith
One of my favourite sequels of last year, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 takes the popular film series in a really different direction to the first film and its sequel, Catching Fire. This time, we find Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and co. beyond the Capitol's reach, on the outer rims of Panem.
It picks up pretty much immediately where Catching Fire left off, with Miss Everdeen airlifted to safety from the Quarter Quell. Unfortunately, Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) and Johanna (Jena Malone) have not been so lucky, captured by the Capitol and detained while Katniss joins the Rebellion.
At first reluctant to have a part in it, knowing that Peeta is at risk, Katniss is soon taken to the devastation that has hit her former home, District 12. And it is this wreckage that really inspires her to rise up and become the titular Mockingjay for her people, their saviour.
What makes it so different from the first two films is that there is no Hunger Games. In those films, we saw heavy action, largely one-on-one or small groups against small groups. The last-person-standing situation is switched out for something on a bigger scale, where the lives of Panem's citizens are at stake.
Some critics have complained that the film not having a Hunger Games has made it more boring or less watchable, but I think the reverse is true. It gives us a chance to explore the outer realms of Panem and the long-lost District 13, seeing parts of this world that we didn't get to explore in the first two. It also remains fairly faithful to the original book. And you get the sense that it's really building to something even bigger and more epic than the first two films - which is saying something! - when Mockingjay Part 2 comes out.
If you're looking for action, you might want to look somewhere else. But the characters are still just as brilliant as they've ever been, and this time we get to see Liam Hemsworth's Gale finally take a leading role with Katniss, as well as more of Philip Seymour Hoffman's Plutarch Heavensbee, Woody Harrelson's Haymitch, Elizabeth Banks' Effie, and Julianne Moore, who appears for the first time in the franchise as President Coin. So if you've been looking forward to seeing more of them, and you're excited about where the story has been heading overall in the series so far, you can't miss this.
