This film seems to be relatively disliked because it doesn't contain as much action as the other films, which is a shame, because it's probably the best of the lot so far. There's a lot of subtle commentary on the power of propaganda, and the reality of revolutions. This isn't about a war of firepower, so much as it is a war of mindshare, and it's far more interesting and unique for it.
It's refreshing to see a movie aimed at young adults which has the balls to take on these kind of topics, but I have a sad feeling it'll be punished for it.
Good movie, great acting, great effects, all that. But I kinda feel the split of the book shows too much. There's no real climaxe to this movie because there's just no climaxe in the middle of a book. Still a good movie but it just really comes off as a build up for the last one, which it obviously is. But, honestly, this could've all just been one movie and we'd all be happy. Instead we have to wait another year for the end which feels kinda unnecessary.
Captures the dark and morbid atmosphere through the usage of cinematography, the scenes filled with silence and merely no dialogue fit very well to emphasise on the darker moments in the film.
