The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 (out Nov 20) isn’t up to scratch. By splitting Suzanne Collins’ concluding novel into two movies (for studio $$$$$$$), we’re left with a film that never gets out of first gear. It’s heavy on padding and light on action. The finale isn’t even close to matching the excitement from the earlier releases. Am expecting much more from Part 2 next year. Grade: B-.
