'The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes' Movie Review
The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes reinvents the franchise as a musical. The new Hunger Games prequel is surprisingly a musical, and while it features strong work from Tom Blyth and Rachel Zegler, it stumbles in the third act.
The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes is an entertaining prequel that dives deeper into the past of Donald Sutherland’s Coriolanus "Coryo" Snow (no played by Tom Blyth) and the history of the games but is surprisingly a musical at its core. Blyth and co-star Rachel Zegler give impressive performances, but the movie suffers from too many storylines and frivolous characters, resulting in the third act falling apart.
