Before you watch Hangover3 ,the main thing to have in mind is that it isnt a comedy.You'll enjoy it better if you dont expect much comedy from it.
Acting from the cast was overall good.Both Zach G & Ken Jeong were great.John Goodman as the villian was good too.The acting was on par with the other two movies ,nothing too great ,but not too bad either.The cast fit their roles and thats what keeps the movie rolling.
After the disaster that was Hangover 2 ,it was most important to get the story right this time around.And what a turn around it has become.Hangover 3 barely resembles the other 2 movies ,infact it doesnt even make sense to call it Hangover.The first movie ,was a rocking comedy movie ,the second was a direct copy of the first but atleast it could be said to be of the comedy genre.But Hangover 3 is more of a action thriller.Whatever comedy the movie has, is poor ,barely laugh worthy.The story is engaging but most of the times is a bit idiotic.
Direction by Todd is average.He completely failed to make a comedy movie ,but instead made a complete opposite of what Hangover was actually about.The comedy is pretty stupid for the most part ,and has almost zero redeeming value.If you like comedy such a giraffe getting beheaded ,then you might enjoy the rest of the comic scenes.But otherwise its just awkward silence.
The pacing of the movie is fast enough and rarely has any dull moments.If you take Hangover 3 for an action thriller ,then the movie turns out to be quite interesting.Everything from the music to the way the movie unfolds, all give the look of a proper action movie.
Would i like to see a Hangover 4? Nope.After watching the post credits scene ,i dont think the movie will ever be as good as the first part.
Overall ,Hangover 3 is a disappointing comedy but is a good action thriller.Its a major improvement over the second part but still is a timepass movie.
