Say what you will about this schlocky and ridiculous gore-fest, but this is a stupendous exercise in the absurd and the macabre.

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.

Interesting but somehow doesn't hold up to the others.

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.

More or less forgettable, Mary Elizabeth Winstead aside and a couple of genuinely genius kills, there's very little new here.

De esas cosas que uno termina viendo en medio de un desvelo y que sigue viendo por curiosidad de lo estúpida que puede llegar a ser. Pésima película sobre una especie de vidente que tiene premoniciones sobre accidentes que van terminando con docenas de vidas de adolescentes en accidentes absurdos. Triste cine adolescente que ni siquiera risa da.

It's starts going downhill in the series with this one. You'll lose interest in the plot and really only stay around to catch the death scenes.

this movie is pretty effective, not particulary scary, but some kind of traumatic, after watching it you will think twice after riding a roller coaster

Mary Elizabeth Winstead's performance does much more to the film than any other actor in the movie.The deaths are genius-like and it has a clear understanding of what the setting is and what characters think and how they are.Final Destination 3 is unique to series and the thriller genre

Offering nothing more than the same, Final Destination 3 once again falls back on the formula of the first two installments, featuring unpredictable blood-soaked kills but without an interesting story to back them up.

Final Destination 3 has good killer scenes visuals, however the cast is horrible, the soundtrack doesn't help, isn't original, it's predictable, so it isn't anything that we haven't seen before in this franchise.

The best rated film in the series and again even with the impossibly-super-coincidental death scenes it still to a certain degree has a sense of pleasure.

Wow what a suprise the film has the original director of the first one back, and its just as good.

Great movie. While it shows that the franchise is becoming more formula than originality, it still is suspenseful, smart, very stylish and has great visual effects and a great performance from Winstead.

The best of the series. Amazing deaths. It's funny, and the sense of dread and foreboding is very heavy.

Gorier and more intense. I can see why some might consider this a step down as the tone feels lighter and the most teen horror-y but it's still just as entertaining.
