Final Destination 3 Reviews
The film is about a group of cliched teens who attend their Grad Night at a theme park. They then go on the most thrilling ride in the park, "Devil's Flight". Once they board the ride, one of the students named Wendy has a horrific vision of her friends dying in a rollercoaster derailment. They get run over, fall off, and a dude even loses his torso. She gets them off before the REAL situation comes true. But, Death, or The Grim Reaper, won't stop there. You can't cheat with this dude. Hes after the kids and taking them away by rewarding them gruesome deaths.
I descriped the characters as "cliched" and they really are. The scripting, acting, and characters are all cliched. But this is one of those fun cliched horror films.
I love the deaths in this movie. Chick gets impaled with a pole, man gets crushed, chicks get killed with nailguns and get cooked in their tanning beds. The tanning bed death is quite disturbing. I found that one to be elaborately stupid, but fun! I mentioned how the film tries to be smart on some occasions. Every couple minutes, they hint the deaths visually with clues. I found this quite smart but the problem is that the film tries to be a mindless gorefest and also be a thinking film. Thats a big issue.
This also scared me a bit psychologically. I love rollercoasters and I would hate to be in a derailment. Due to this fact, I'm scared to go on "California Screamin'" at Disney's California Adventure again but plan to go on again soon.
Now that I really think about, the film was dumb and lies in between being terrible and decent. My only option is to givie it a 50%. So if you like mindless gorefests with dumb characters, watch this one and the other films in the series if you can. But this is a very forgettable film, folks. Horror movies are a lost art.
scares. But for what it is, The Final Destination series is are a bunch of rediculous teen horror films that are guilty pleasures.
Well, it's FINAL DESTINATION 3. It shouldn't be too hard to guess what your probably enjoyment level from watching this movie will be. It's just like Final Destination 2 (and therefore, the original Final Destination), but with different death scenarios and a hotter main character.
Once again, a group of people who were spared a gruesome end in a disaster because of a person's sinister premonition (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) face Death's determined and elaborate attempts to take their lives and satisfy his original plans for their fates.
The death scenes are once again suitably inventive and gruesome (you'll never look at tanning salons the same way), and Mary Elizabeth Winstead is really cute. Those are basically the only relevant issues. If you were a fan of the previous movies, it stands to reason that you'll also enjoy this one. If you hated the first two, the third installment won't change your mind. I'd say that this is my favorite of the bunch. The production values are better than the previous movies, and there's the all-important Winstead Factor to consider.
The whole notion of being on a roller coaster like that and having something go wrong would make anyone shiver with fright haha its a nasty idea and one Im sure everyone has had when maybe going on one, what if!!!!
The rest of the film again continues the death coaster (my personal term haha) of accidents which do get more interesting and unique, the sunbed idea is pretty nasty, and at times more bloody but its nothing new or different to the previous films, as said its the opening sequence that makes the film for me.
So you can imagine my surprise to find that final destination 3 is a entertaining , funny and shocking thriller that proves that horror sequels can be pretty darn good if handled properly .
Directed by james wong with style and a pace that hits the ground running ,the film is very much like a roller coaster in its self - fast,packed full of laughs and most importantly full of frights .
The film is essentially a remake of the first film only with a different cast, gorier deaths and a higher level of self awareness.But this is a rare case in which copying the original isn't a bad thing- it keeps that sense of inventiveness and wit that made the first one great. It may be a clone , but its a very good one !
Final destination 3 is gory ,homourous and clever fun that will make me think twice about my horror sequel prejudice....
