Critics Consensus

Final Destination 3 is more of the same: gory and pointless, with nowhere new to go.

Movie Info

Death once again shows he's determined to get what he wants in this teen-centric thriller. Wendy (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) is a high school student hanging out with her friends at an amusement park one night when they decide to ride on the roller coaster. Wendy, however, has a premonition that something horrible will happen, and finds a way to save herself shortly before the ride goes off the rails, killing most of its passengers, including her boyfriend, Jason (Jesse Moss), and best friend, Carrie (Gina Holden). However, while Wendy may have survived the night at the park, she soon discovers that a malevolent spirit is following her and her classmates as they begin dying in strange and horrible ways. Wendy learns that a series of snapshots taken that evening give clues to the mayhem that followed her pals, and she teams up with Kevin (Ryan Merriman), Carrie's sweetheart, to try to warn the potential victims about the fates soon to befall them. Final Destination 3 was directed and co-scripted by James Wong, who also helmed the first two films in the franchise.

Audience Reviews for Final Destination 3

    Let's be real, at this point Final Destination isn't trying to impress us or make us think, its trying to give us a few dark laughs on a saturday night and it really does deliver. Unfortunately, 3 is where the fun ends until 5 came out, bringing true horror back into the franchise. If you prefer your horror zany and unserious, refer to Final Destination 3 and not Final Destination 4. The physics of some of the accidents are all extremely silly however they're truly effective and almost whimsical in their approach of making us paranoid of drive-thrus, tanning machines and fairground rides. It's not a bad franchise, its just a dumb one and that's really nothing to be ashamed of. Every class needs a clown.

    This thing made money, didn't it? Someone recommended that I see this...if only I could remember who that person was. I want revenge and my time back.

    There is no interesting character, the plot is stale, Tony Todd is absent, the death scenes look completely stale and fake, and even the roller coaster crashing defies physics and looks as if done with stop motion animation. I'm not sure who greenlit this film but they should be fired.

    'Final Destination 3's death scenes are most likely viewable online, so watch them there, save yourself about 85 useless minutes and you can thank me later.
