Better than Part 1, though both need to be seen to get the context. It felt a little like a return to the second movie by incorporating “the games” in the city, though didn’t really explain why the entire city was boobytrapped with game devices (multitudes of traps). Overall a respectable finish to the series, even if it felt like Act III was dragged out over 2 movies.
The previous instalment raised the bar on the games, but this aftermath and development of the rebellion – though relevant to the story – falls short of its target since Hollywood likes to split the last part of a trilogy into two, stretch them out a bit, and cash in. There were some topical themes here – media, propaganda, fear, war, etc – portrayed well. Should probably see both parts 1 and 2 together.
