Warning: Spoilers ahead!!!
“I Volunteer As Tribute”
“I volunteer as tribute” – this sentence started all the events in the series, and it was also one the most well-known quote by Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence). Even Katniss was not aware of what she was saying at that moment; the only thing that she wanted to do was trying to save her younger sister Prim. Katniss loved and cared deeply for Prim (Willow Shields), who was kind, gentle, and sweet. When Prim was selected to participate in the 74th Hunger Games, Katniss knew that her sister would not be able to survive in the deadly battle, thus she had only one option: take Prim’s place and become a tribute.
Shooting the targets
Katniss was remarkably skilled at shooting arrow; therefore, whenever she aimed to shoot at something, the audience would become very excited. One of the most impressive shots in The Hunger Games was probably when she shot an arrow directly at the apple and surprised the Gamemakers during her private session in the 74th Hunger Game. With that shot, she proved to them how strong she was despite of not being a strongly favored tribute. Even other tributes were impressed with her shooting skills at the Training Center. And in addition, Katniss proved her skill again by accurately shooting, destroying the force field of the arena, and helping other tributes escape.
The Mockingjay Dress
The scene where Katniss swirled around on the stage while her white wedding dress caught on fire and transformed into a Mockingjay dress left a deep impression on a lot of movie goers; it was a beautiful yet also one of the most intense moments in the Hunger Game series. The dress was a designed by Cinna, Katniss’s personal designer as well as one of her closest friends.
In the Hunger Games: Catching Fire, Katniss was made to go back on the stage before the Quarter Quell, unsure about what was waiting in the future for her. At this time, President Snow had cancelled her wedding with Peeta, forced her to wear a wedding dress – even though she was not able to get married in it, and made her appear on live TV. Cinna took this opportunity to provoke Snow without the evil president being able to do anything about it. In front the eyes of millions of audiences in Panem, Katniss transformed in a Mockingjay, a symbol of the rebellion against the dictorship of The Capitol.
