The Hangover Part III is an American film and is the conclusion to The Hangover trilogy. In this film, Mr Chow escapes from a Thai prison and begins to reek havoc on Las Vegas, resulting in a gang kidnapping one of the Wolf Pack, and the only way that the remaining three can save their friend is to find and capture Mr Chow.

This was such a good film! I was amazed by how they managed to make the third film the best in the series in my opinion. It was definitely as funny (if not funnier) as the first two, but they changed the story from the ‘waking up, what did we do last night?’, which made it a lot more entertaining and exciting.

I thought that the story was very clever, and all of the callbacks to the first two films, such as Thailand, Black Doug, and losing Doug again, made it much funnier, while adding to the notion that this was the wrapping up of the entire story of The Hangover.

The comedy in this film was a lot more chaotic than the first two, and although some parts were predictable, they were still extremely funny, and along with a great story, this edition is by far my favourite one of the trilogy, so I’ll give it a 7.7.
