Quite dull for large parts of the film, pretty threadbare plot - obviously as a result of splitting the last book in two. The story arc was very predictable and the characters were not explored in any great depth, with the notable exception of "peeda", who's trial and redemption is so forced it's unbelievable. The side characters are 1D and forgettable. My advice - wait until you can watch this for free on Netflix and skip the boring bits (about 85% of it).

I know some of you reading will disagree with my comments. Compared to the other films in the franchise, this felt too long and drawn out with an exceptionally weak plot and a totally anti-climatic ending. No Oscar's for this film ...certainly not for screenplay or acting. Bitterly disappointing :-(
I think this would work better if you were binge watching the movie series. If it's been six months to a year since you saw the previous one, you'll probably find this slow and confusing like I did. The hero's journey is really spoilt if you can't remember her motivation, so the ending lacks impact.
