If you are a fan of watching Jennifer Lawrence look sad and cry then this is the perfect movie for you. Otherwise this movie was so slow I was wondering, before it was halfway through, when it was going to be over. I was so bored at one point I almost fell asleep. The dramatic moments in this movie were almost soap opera dramatic. I just don't understand how they could have taken the first two movies, which were action packed and character driven, and made a movie that was so slow and uninspired from this book series.
Now I know this won't be a popular review of this movie, so many people are already in love with it, but I think it could have been better. I did read the books and I think that in an effort to make four movies for this series they took some of the dullest things they could and made them duller. The best part of the movie was when Peeta and Katniss were reunited, otherwise I really could have cared less about what was going on. I was also incredibly uncomfortable with the communist Germany feel I got throughout the movie, some of the gestures and the actions made me uncomfortable.
Also, I must say Phillip Seymour Hoffman was wonderful as usual and he will be missed as an actor and a man. His performances in pretty much every movie was spectacular.
