The Hangover Part III Reviews
WHAT I DIDN'T LIKE: It can't quite live up to the first because the original idea was just golden, and they've tried rehashing it which failed, but now a new leap forward just can't quite deliver in the same way
VERDICT: Cut out the second, this is what the sequel should have been like. It's probably the best it could have been all things considered.
There was almost no humor to be had. It was like the producers woke up one morning and decided, "You know what we should do with Hangover 3? Make it like Die Hard," and ran with it, ignoring all the things that made Die Hard and the Hangover successful. What they got was an at best mediocre wanna-be action movie that has no idea where it's going or why anyone should care.
Comedy sequels don't often work due to repeating the same material that made the original successful, which meant this was in trouble from the start, but when you take the same characters and divert them so drastically, you get nowhere unless you find new ground to break, which was not done. A sad end for the Wolfpack.
