Its an interesting portrait of a man slowly becoming a sociopath, but its way too long.
For a prequel it does a surprisingly good job of making you interested in the film to follow it. The characters are nuanced enough to keep you going even if it does get bloated and lost in its final act.

The prequel to the tetralogy in the same universe, The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds & Snakes might just be the longest title we’ve seen in a while, but fear not, this movie is also… long. Set 65 years before the original The Hunger Games book-which-had-movies-about-it, this was actually one book (sorry Jill) which seems to have been stretched out to make a very long movie. Don’t fear about getting confused, because there’s plenty of nods to the future series, like that cool dude President John Sno… sorry Coveryouranus Snow, that very cat-like person Tigris but she’s apparently also a Snow and a huge name-drop to Katniss…who is apparently named after a swamp potato. Who’d have thunk it?
And some joke about Peta coming in late, just like Peeta in the film
