    Definitely the weakest if the three. It was all set up and no payoff. I loved the books and Mockingjay was my least favorite. I would give it **1/2 out of ****

    Yeah, which is why I think most of this movie could have been done in 30-45. It really did seem like they wanted to show us how many times and how many different ways Lawrence could cry.

    I think the box office decline is because die hard fans simply don't like how it was done and they're staying away from repeat viewings. I haven't read any of the books but I'm guessing part 2 is going to be wall-to-wall action so I'm sure it'll fit better with people. The first two films were full of "talk" but they also had a lot of action. That wasn't the case with this film.

    Wow, this movie was easily the worst I've seen this year. I kept waiting for something interesting or exciting to happen and it never did. It was just a commercial for the next movie.

    Mockingjay, Part 1 is now 2014's Box Office Champ.

    Unfortunately Transformers 4 is still top in Worldwide sales for 2014. It isn't even close. around $200 million difference between Transformers 4 and Hobbit 3 which is in 2nd place.
