The movie opens with Katniss alive--if not altogether well--in District 13, which had previously been assumed destroyed. When Katniss blew up the arena's force field at the end of "Catching Fire" and was airlifted out, she was brought there to light a fire under the rebellion long-desired by the militant District 13. Only some of her fellow victors escaped, specifically the techno-wizard Beattie and the playboy, Finnick; Katniss would then sink into a horrible depression knowing her on/off boyfriend Peeta was left behind to be scavenged by the Capitol's torturers.
As she begins to explore other districts and see first-hand how her small acts of rebellion have turned into flashpoints for attacks by Capitol forces, Katniss begins to assume the role of the "Mockingjay" that her handlers desire. Even now, she's still in the Hunger Games--just in a different form and with strings pulled by a different puppet master. She struggles with the weight of it all, wanting to lash out at President Snow for the atrocities he's committed while simultaneously holding herself back in the very real fear that her actions will only spur further retaliation against the imprisoned Peeta.
Of the three books, this one is the toughest, not so much because the arena has expanded to virtually every corner of Panem but also due to the fact that there are so many stories to tell: Katniss and Peeta, Katniss and Gale, Finnick and Annie, Katniss and Panem's President Snow, Katniss and District 13's President Coin...Naturally, some of the stories told in the book are either condensed or written out altogether, but some bright spots remain--particularly Woody Harrelson's Haymitch and Philip Seymour Hoffman's Plutarch. Splitting this into two movies generally makes sense (even though it's unclear that it was done for narrative purposes or to boost box office), but this part of the story is mostly the setup for what comes in the climax (Part 2). As such, there are also some bits and pieces that don't really get shown in the movie that remove some of the flavor from this part of the story. At times, the progression is as grey as the uniforms of District 13.
Still, it's a good film (and improves upon subsequent viewings). Strong performances from all of the lead actors--especially Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson--provide ample humanity and depth to the story and set the stage for a big finish in the final chapter.
