In the grand order of cinema, you would be hard-pressed to find a third film in a series which is on a par with the proceeding two entries. Fortunately for Cruel Intentions 3, it doesn't have too hard to work, given that part 2 was absolutely dire.

What we have in part 3 is essentially a TV movie for young adults that could be played on any network at any time; censor some brief sex scenes and a one-line reference to the first film and you have a film that has no other reason for existing except to fill up some space in a box set or a rental store bargain bin (coincidentally where I brought my copy).

That said though, there are elements of 3 that I preferred over the abomination of "Manchester Prep". For a start, some of the lead characters are more convincingly acted than their predecessors. Kristina Anapau managed to channel the seductive qualities of Sarah Michelle Gellar from the first film, but also hold her own ground against more established stars like Kerr Smith and Charlie Weber. Smith himself, whilst not up to the devious standards of Ryan Phillipe from the original, gives a reasonably smooth performance, perhaps suggesting someone who spent about an hour learning lines each day before exploring the sun-drenched locale he was going to be filmed in. Nathan Wetherington puts more effort into his role, a despicable creep who gets his just desserts by the end of the film, yet the other characters are such non-entities that you shouldn't be surprised if, by the end of the first act, you have forgotten all their names.

The plot is the usual Cruel Intentions territory of seduction, lust, betrayal and deviousness, but it's hidden under such a layer of faux-teen angst that at certain points I was wandering whether I was watching a TV movie or a relationships self-help video. It's a film worth investigating only if you are keen to rid yourself of the bitter taste of Cruel Intentions 2 or you are a film student looking at declining sequel qualities.

Well what a rubbish film! All the cast are generic look the same no personalities! I can't tell each individual person apart from the next! The women ain't super hot etc few good booty call scenes, which would have been made better for me with a hotter female cast! First two films are actually not too bad but this is like a college project remade by amateurs! Avoid at all costs can't believe I even wasted 2 pound but was for charity only plus point!

If you buy this DVD after having seen either of the first two, you are going to be disapointed. The plot is very similar to its predecessors and really dragged. It failed to break any new ground and with the slight exception of the ending it has nothing to offer. However I can highly recommend one and two and if you havent got either of these the three disk box set is only a few pounds more.

Well i started to watch this thinking it would be bad as the second film, however it really isn't. Its about completely new characters and its a differnt story, they even give little refrences to the first film.But don't get me wrong its nothing on the original and even though the story, writing & acting is great the directing could of ben better. Some of the first films charm was how it looked, this film doesn't capture that. But it serves well as a sequel, if you watch it considering its a different type of film. not as arty.

This flim is a huge inmprovement on the second and is a very good seauale to the first. It contains all the aspects of the first one that made it great, i loved it as there is even more scheming in this one than the first, Jason is a very good substitue for sabastuian and has a quaint charm as he isn't as arrogant but this is made up by the charictor patrick who you will love and loath. Cassie is and exelent substitute for Katherine and i think she is even more menipulative but i cant deside whos sexyer Sarah mechelle gellar or Kristina Anapau just watch it and decide for yourself. the sex scenes are great and there are more women in this than in the first two. I really enjoyed it and i think it deserves the tittle Cruel Intentions
