Interesting but somehow doesn't hold up to the others, or its just the same thing different situation.

This is the best movie in the series.

Meh, the first two movies were way better. This is just average. Pretty good deaths, lacking everywhere else though.

The deaths are pretty harsh in this one, and the main character is the guiding light in giving this movie emotion or feeling of any kind. This Death is angrier and more violent.

Suprisingly this film was really good. Usually in horror franchises the third installment is the dropping point, but this was an exception. The acting was great. the score was also great. I liked how they used the pictures as clues. My favorite death is definitely the Workout death. If he wasn't so egotistical, he wouldn't have died. Definitely a watch for all Final Destination fans and Horror fans in general.


Rating: 7.3/10

"X-Files" veterans Glen Morgan and James Wong return to the franchise they created and make a third film that's about as good as the original, but that's not saying too much since the first film was kind of a mixed bag. Completely ignoring the first two films, this one starts with an entirely new set of teens, led by Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who while taking pictures at the carnival with her new fangled digital camera has a premonition of death that she and her friends are all about to be killed on a rollercoaster. As with the prior films, they "cheat" death by not going on the rollercoaster that soon kills a slew of people and they are then each killed or nearly killed in various elaborate sequences. Wong and Morgan do come up with more interesting of sequences and build better suspense than part two, and they actually do improve on the first film with having a more likable of leading character in Winstead, though credit probably goes to Winstead and not Wong and Morgan (though Wong and Morgan probably do get credit for including a Joey Ramone bobble-head in Winstead's bedroom). As with the other films, this isn't a classic, but is watchable for horror fans.

Entertaining but doesn`t cover any of the story.

Following the basic beats of the first two installments without bringing anything new to the table except a fresh batch of teenage corpses, Final Destination 3 is probably the least inspired chapter in this gore-filled series -- more disturbing, more violent and even more tedious the third time around.

3/5. It's fine if you like the first two films but it doesn't really add anything new to the series.

This by far is their best movie. The previous movies' story is not as much as interesting as it did on this one.

The first movie was better than this

Well, just because it's more of the same doesn't mean it's becoming monotonous or tiresome. In fact, though no more intricate or clever than their predecessors, the kills in this one are at the very least more amusing, if not more humourous. Unfortunately, that's about where the good times end.

the story didn't get overly complex and stupid like the second movie, and it didn't have the same cheesiness, but the accident scenes weren't nearly as good (2 viewings)

Exciting, very gory, and well acted as expected. Final Destination 3 is still more of the same, yet it is still entertaining as hell to see all these over the top deaths.

Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Ryan Merriman are pretty good and the death scenes are fairly entertaining.

Say what you will about this schlocky and ridiculous gore-fest, but this is a stupendous exercise in the absurd and the macabre.
September 16, 2016
Call it a guilty pleasure, or a great movie, but I loved this. I love the directing and writing, I think it's brilliant. The writing is especially so purposefully over the top and hilarious! But this one has great actors that give great performances...and even if it didn't, it has Mary Elizabeth Winstead!

While watching a film like this, with wildly far fetched situations leading to inevitable gory death, it's important to keep in mind that this film is only trying to pull off one thing; Which would be to convince its viewers that, when something that wasn't supposed to happen happens, life somehow corrects itself. Otherwise, the viewer would laugh at the film's stupidity and unrealisticness.

However, "Final Destination 3" really isn't that far fetched or stupid by any means, when you think about it. It's simple... A few teens are about to unknowingly cause their own deaths by going onto a broken roller coaster. But, one of the teens freak out, causing half of the riders to get off of the coaster. Then, one by one, each of the teens who left the ride somehow inevitably die anyway, unless something or someone intervenes.

So, obviously, the film is about defying death at any cost, which, in turn, makes up for the wildly far fetched scenarios that cause each teen to die, because death is apparently inevitable and will occur in any ridiculous way it has to.

Therefore, "Final Destination 3" is not nearly as bad as it seems. But, its still far from great. Things like characters, consequences, odd coincidences are a huge part of why this movie didn't turn out to be something great. Lastly, the biggest of problems here is its unoriginality, as this film is pretty pointless and an imitation of its predecessors.

Granted i dont remember much about these movies except im pretty sure i saw them all. this one= its dated, its very 2000's teen horror, its "is that gonna kill him, is that, is that?" played out, etc. overall i made it through, which to the credit of this film- doesnt happen all the time with things like this- so kudos to the filmmakers in that sense. I do remember the first was of course the first time this has been done and is a classic in that way, and the last had a good twist on fucking the rule up- not sure how the story laid out offhand in 2-4 and where this fell in the grand overall of that so its hard to say if it was just the same film or it added abit of something to the series.
