The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 could have gone wrong in so many ways that it’s a genuine relief to be able to say it’s infinitely better than the book – at least, so far. It’s smart and thought provoking while having considerably more action that I was expecting. In fact, it’s the best film in the series, so far.

Paranoia is sleek, efficient and hollow. It follows an entry level worker at an IT company through a presentation that leads him and his team being fired and the transgression that forces him to spy on his boss’ rival and former mentor.
