STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • 'Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1" is in theaters now
  • One critic called it "an overgrown and bloated trailer"
  • Another hailed the acting in the film
 

(CNN) -- Are the odds still ever in our favor?

'Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1" has hit theaters, and critics seem divided on whether it's a strong offering.

Politics is a star, as much as Jennifer Lawrence's rebel Katniss Everdeen, in the latest installment of the popular franchise. Adapted from the the third novel in the young adult series by Suzanne Collins, the film finds Katniss stepping firmly into her role as leader in the fight against the authoritarian-totalitarian regime of Panem.

Joe Morgenstern of the Wall Street Journal notes the controversy that has surrounded the decision to make two movies out of the third book and writes "but this latest film, which Francis Lawrence directed from a screenplay by Peter Craig and Danny Strong, proves to be much more than scene-setting."

"It's about the power of political symbols, and the danger of becoming one -- about Katniss staying true to herself, and to those she loves, while her handlers seek to reshape her into some sort of sci-fi Joan of Arc," he writes.

The Wrap's Alonso Duralde finds that the new film "calls to mind smart political comedies like 'Wag the Dog' and 'Tanner '88.' "

"Returning director Francis Lawrence finds interesting visual moments, even in the underground bunker," Duralde writes. "At one point, Katniss looks down on rows and rows of rebels climbing down, down, down a metallic triangular staircase, and it's like something out of "Metropolis." That's a pretty bold quotation to make for a film that's also about a proletariat revolution, but even if "Mockingjay" isn't on the level of that silent classic, it's not an altogether inappropriate reference point."

But Todd McCarthy of The Hollywood Reporter pins Part 1 as "an overgrown and bloated trailer for a film yet to come."

"Unfortunately, 'Mockingjay - Part 1' has all the personality of an industrial film," he says. "There's not a drop of insolence, insubordination or insurrection running through its veins; it feels like a manufactured product through and through, ironic and sad given its revolutionary theme."

Slate's movie critic, Dana Stevens, writes of the parallel themes of teen romance and revolution in the film. Katniss is torn between feelings for Peeta (Josh Hutcherson), who is now in the custody of the Capitol, and fellow freedom fighter Gale (Liam Hemsworth).

"War and teenage angst make for uncomfortable narrative bedfellows, but at least the political violence that rips through the fictional country of Panem is neither glossed over nor trivialized," Stevens writes, noting the film's PG-13 rating for scenes that include executions and mass slaughter. "And Jennifer Lawrence is actress enough to invest even Katniss' comparatively low-stakes struggle with some dramatic heft."

Indeed, it appears that the acting may be part of the saving grace for the film according to some. Claudia Puig of USA Today praises Lawrence and her fellow cast members, including Julianne Moore and the late Philip Seymour Hoffman.

"Jennifer Lawrence reveals greater depth and emotional layers as rebel leader Katniss and is bolstered by powerhouse supporting performances," Puig writes. "New to the dystopian franchise, Julianne Moore plays District 13 President Alma Coin with just the right blend of stern authority and humanity. Her right-hand man is the once-sinister, now-wearied Plutarch Heavensbee, played perfectly by Philip Seymour Hoffman."

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
“飢餓遊戲:飢餓遊戲:自由幻夢 - 第1部分”是在電影院現在
一位評論家稱它是“一個雜草叢生的臃腫預告片”
另歡呼作用在薄膜
(CNN) -的機率仍不斷對我們有利?
“飢餓遊戲:飢餓遊戲:自由幻夢 - 第1部分”已經上映,而批評者似乎分歧無論它是一個強大的產品。
政治是一個明星,不亞於詹妮弗·勞倫斯的反叛凱特尼斯·伊夫狄恩,在流行的特許經營權的最新分期付款。從年輕的成人系列由蘇珊·柯林斯的第三本小說改編,影片發現Katniss踩著堅定了她作為領導者,對Panem的專制極權政權的鬥爭中的作用。
的華爾街日報喬·摩根斯坦指出,包圍,使兩部電影出第三本書的決定,並寫道:“但是這個最新的電影,這弗朗西斯·勞倫斯從劇本由彼得·克雷格和丹尼強執導,被證明是太多的爭議比場景設置的更多。“
“這是關於政治符號的力量,並成為一種危險-約Katniss堅守自己,以及那些她愛,而她的處理程序試圖重塑她進入某種弧科幻瓊,” 他寫道。
該包裹的阿隆索Duralde發現,新電影“讓我想起聰明的政治喜劇片如”搖尾狗“和”丹拿88年。“ “
“回歸導演弗朗西斯·勞倫斯發現有趣的視覺瞬間,即使在地下掩體,”Duralde寫道。“有一次,Katniss看不起一排排叛軍爬下來,下來,下來的金屬三角形的樓梯,它就像出來的東西”大都會“。這是一個相當大膽的報價,以使一個電影說的也是關於無產階級革命,但即使“飢餓遊戲:自由幻夢”是不是說沉默的經典程度,它不是一個完全不恰當的參考點。“
但好萊塢記者托德·麥卡錫銷第1部分為“一個雜草叢生的臃腫預告片的電影還沒有到來。”
“不幸的是,”飢餓遊戲:自由幻夢-第1部分“有工業用薄膜的所有性格,” 他說, “沒有一滴的蠻橫,不服從或叛亂通過它的血管裡,那感覺就像製成品透,諷刺和傷心賦予其革命性的主題。“
Slate的影評,達納·史蒂文斯,寫的青春愛情和革命電影的平行主題。Katniss被撕裂的感覺之間的Peeta(喬什·哈切森),現在是誰在國會大廈的監護權,和同胞自由戰士蓋爾(利亞姆·海姆斯沃斯)。
“戰爭與十幾歲的焦慮讓不舒服的敘事同床異夢,但至少剝去通過Panem的虛構的國家的政治暴力事件既不掩飾,也不輕視,”史蒂文斯寫道,並指出電影的PG-13等級的場景,包括處決和​​質量屠宰。“而詹妮弗·勞倫斯是演員不夠,甚至Katniss'相對低風險的一些戲劇性的分量鬥爭進行投資。”
事實上,看來演技可能是可取之處,用於根據某些所述膜的一部分。今日美國的克勞迪亞·普伊格稱讚勞倫斯和她的同事劇組成員,包括朱莉安·摩爾和已故的菲利普·塞默·霍夫曼。
“詹妮弗·勞倫斯發現更大的深度和情感層為叛軍領袖Katniss,並通過廠房配套的表演帶動,” 普格寫道, “新的反烏托邦的專營權,朱麗安·摩爾扮演13區總裁阿爾瑪硬幣與恰到好處的融合了嚴厲的權威和人性化她的左右手是一次險惡,現在已經厭倦普魯塔克Heavensbee,由菲利普·塞默·霍夫曼完全發揮。“
