While The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 may lack in the action department, the cast and interesting story definitely make up for it. Prior to my viewing of this, I had heard many people mention that this film is boring. I must say that I was never bored and I have to credit the solid performances for that, as well as the fact that I was very into the story. About half way through I had to take a leak, but I chose not to leave the theater in fear that I was going to miss vital information.
Mockingjay - Part 1 has certainly done a very fine job at setting up for what could potentially be an awesome finale to an all around solid series.
