‘Mockingjay’ Was Brilliant But Sequels Have Almost Ruined It!

It has been revealed that Suzanne Collin’s “Mockingjay” is a book 398 pages long. Lionsgate has always sought for standing as a good business maker in the market and so has split “Mockingjay” into two movies. It is also quite interesting to know that when a single book of 398 pages gets divided into two movies, what wonders it will do to the viewers when each and every single aspect will be considered into the movie.

Every sentence means shooting with much precision and depth to actually bring out the essence of the character. Sequences could have been shot in slow motion to create a human gripping tension, especially the time when Katniss raises her bow and fires and arrow, leading to the death of a woman. However, the movie deals with no such cinematic sequences that could have added to its greatness and made it much grand.

“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay –Part 2” is no doubt movie that must be seen for sure, peculiarly if somebody wants to draw a good comparison between the other parts of the film franchise. If we seriously compare part 2 to “Mockingjay,” the movie actually stands nowhere since original is always original. The excellence and greatness of the movie is well depicted with a powerful narrative that leaves us spellbound. While reading “Mockingjay,” one thing that inspires readers to keep reading till the end is the clarity of vision that Collins has beautifully mastered in the book.

A book that reveals that how mostly understood meanings of heroism are sugar coated and presented in an all new way to less powerful people by most powerful ones. In the sequel, “Katniss” (Jennifer Lawrence) is depicted to be the most powerful one, however, her major skill exists in marketing. With an almost negative effect “Katniss” plays with all heroism that was not many a time the requirement of her character. The movie has almost made a low start at the Box office and thus is far beyond numerous expectations.
