This is an okay movie but has some great kills, and like the second one, a great finale.

Exceptional and felt better than 2.

The film attempts to chronologically continue the series 8 years after, but ends up being awful. Some scenes near the end are more depressing, rather than entertaining horror. And the ending, once again is dumb as hell. Still waiting for some funny lines from evil chucky 1/5

A major step down from the first two films, Child's Play 3's only redeeming qualities are a decent script, a few good performances, and a couple great kills. Most of the kills are toned down so much that they're just lame, and Justin Whalin is just okay as Andy Barclay. The military school setting is boring, and reminds me too much of Full Metal Jacket, complete with a couple references to that film. Forget Seed of Chucky, THIS is the worst film in the franchise, although it's partly redeemed by Perrey Reeves' great performance as Kristen DeSilva.

childs play 3 was very interesting its good, but bad if that make sence, i liked the whole plot about the military very well, it was cool, it was action packed at the end its one of those you would enjoy but not, on the other hand the films acting is stupid, and they make chucky more dome and put the stupidest characters into the 3rd sequal into the childs play franchise, but its a very low talked about film in the series, well i give it some credit for trying.

Now set in an army camp, Andy has now grown up and using a different actor (Justin Whalin) who isn't that bad but my God, everyone else is. The acting is so bad. There are no scares and basicly no horror. The only good thing is that the special effects for Chucky have improved slightly and Brad Dourif has cemented his role as the voice of Chucky, other than that, this is the worst in the series so far and could've ruined Chucky forever. Bad directing, acting and the death scenes are rubbish...there are no shocks and almost laughable. A few good one liners though.

Decent job of keeping it somewhat interesting, but not fresh enough to warrant 3.5 stars.

Jobbing director Bender teams up with burnt out scriptwriter Mancini to bring back Kirschner and Yagher‚?s Cabbage Patch killer in the second of a back-to-back two picture deal with Universal that seems to have stretched franchise scribe far beyond his limited creative levels.

The feckless Whalin takes over the lead role with a spunky Reeves and the young Sylvers at his side as the franchise jumps forward 8 years for the Chuck‚?s third outing against doll fodder performances from Fine, Jacobson, Haskell and Matthews but it is as ever Dourif who is in the driving seat as the wise cracking curiosity.

The filmmakers craft an uninspired cookie cutter teen slasher flick with all the requisite unbelievable characters and illogical plot twists in order to fit the studios tight schedules that achieved notoriety in the U.K. when it was scapegoated by the trashy British tabloid press in the tragic murder of James Bulger.

You've gotta be fucking kidding me!

One of the weaker entries in the series, due mostly to an unlikeable cast. Like seriously, I can't root for any of these people. I find myself cheering for Chucky more. He's at least funny and Douriff is awesome as usual. The setting in the military school does it no favors either. Makes it largely boring. But.. Chucky has some good lines, and the opening and finale are pretty well done.

OK This was worse than the 2nd one. Boring Acting, Bad Music, and everything, and this was only 89 mins so it should have been longer

Despite an interesting premise, an intriguing location and a few subplots that could have made this film must see and truly enjoyable, it simply fell flat when it counted. Unquestionably the weakest of the original trilogy, Child's Play 3 adds way too much camp and not enough where the first two films succeeded, suspense. The closing sequences inside the carnival seemed tacked on and did not fit in with any part of the film. Adding a love story seemed necessary but it went nowhere, the subplot involving the leader of the cadets died down quickly until everyone involved in that plot were killed off in spectacular fashion. Chucky's end game seems interesting in this movie. As in the previous two movies, he wants out of the doll body and believes Andy is his only possible convoy. After, somehow, mailing himself to the military school where Andy has been placed in order to attempt to bring order and discipline into his life, he meets Tyler, a 6 or 8 year old boy who loves the Good Guy doll. He comes to the conclusion that since he has a new body that Tyler is now his conduit out of the body he is imprisoned within. Despite the knowledge that he will no longer be inside the doll's body, it has never made sense to me that Chucky would want to switch bodies with a child. There are a few moments that make this movie watchable, such as Chucky switching out the paintball rounds with live bullets for the war games and the nerd of the movie sacrificing himself on the grenade. Although entertaining at times and adding subplots that could have made a better film, the ending takes everything away and the director simply zooms through Chucky's ultimate demise (which was pretty cool despite the locale) and leaves you wondering why that was the ending.

Terrible chucky movie starring who cares. I want more chucky in these movies like in the first child's play. I like the character chucky but the kid in this movie was bad. This would probably be a better movie when it first came out but it's mother fudging 2017 , we have better horror movies now like conjuring or don't breathe. I'm rewatching every chucky movie in reverse order so on to child's play 2.

Probably my least favourite entry into one of the greatest horror franchises of all time, Child's Play 3 sees the young Andy graduating from childhood and becoming an angsty adolescent attending a military training programme at a remote academy, wherein he still lives in fear of the doll possessed by serial killer, Charles Lee Ray penned "The Lakeshore Strangler". The continuity is weak, with little to no reference to the previous instalments and the story feels thread-bare and monotonous, with barely anything new being added to a series with such potential. The finale battle set inside a ghost train at an amusement park is probably the highlight of the film, however is it worth sitting through the entire film to get there? Not really. Fans of Chucky should watch, but if you had a "meh" attitude to the previous two entries then it's really not worth your time.

There are a lot a sequences I like. But the story and movie quality is horrible!
½ July 30, 2017
Child's Play 3 is a little more stupid, a little less fun, than its predecessor, but still continues the insanity that is this stupid series and should be a good time.

This is a great end to the trilogy. Its a bit cheesy but its a good end to the Childs Play films. Brad Dourif is great again as chucky. The setting at the army camp is different, but not bad different. The kids were good actors in this. The ending is great. In the funhouse. If you liked the first two films, definitely check this one out. I didnt think that Bride Of Chucky and Seed of Chucky were necessary though. After seeing the trailer for Cult of Chucky, im optimistic about the franchise. If you enjoyed Childs Play 1 and 2, definitely check this one out.


Rating: 7.6/10

There's a couple okay parts in the third act (Chucky putting live ammunition in the guns is a good idea, and the funhouse is a great set piece), but in almost every sense this is a misfire, and the only Chucky movie that I find just straight-up boring.
½ April 7, 2017
Andy is significantly older in this third movie in the series, and the style seems a little different than the first two movies. However, it is the same old Chucky. He is just as evil as ever and there is some good suspense. If you are craving some horror it provides a decent scare. (First and only viewing - 7/3/2008)

Cool! AWESOME!! CHUCKY ROCKS!
