BENGALURU: Film: "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1"; Director: Francis Lawrence; Cast: Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Julianne Moore, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffery Wright, Stanley Tucci and Donal Sutherland; Rating: *1/2

Based on Suzanne Collins's third young adult novel on the futuristic dystopian society of Panem in the "Hunger Games" series, this film, "Mockingjay - Part 1" is a sequel to the 2013 released "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire".

But unlike its previous editions, "Mockingjay - Part 1" lacks the zing of an adventure film. During its entire run time, it just concentrates on creating a setting for the next part.

Unfortunately, this science fiction adventure film will be understood only by those who've read the book or have seen the previous editions of the series.

As the saga continues, the film begins with Katniss Everdeen, the winner of the previous 'Hunger Games', being in an unsettling transitional period of her life. Her moods swing as she battles to recover from the shock her body, mind, and spirit have undergone in the past few months.

The games are over and there is a revolution in the offing. The man who devised the sadistic competition, Plutarch Heavensbee reveals a new facet to his character. His role as the Games' evil planner was just a cover-up for his activities as a rebel agent. Now, as a rebel strategist, he is pressing Katniss to become the poster-face of the rebellion against the Capitol, governed by President Snow.

Katniss, who now lives in the underground District 13 with her sister, mother and a few trusted friends, has her own issues. She is angry that her partner during the Games, Peeta, who was thought to be dead, is now in the Capitol, giving propaganda talks. This, according to her, seems to be manipulated. She misses him and feels for him.
