3.0 out of 5 stars The ride of your life-or death!, 11 Aug. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Final Destination 3 [2006] [DVD] (DVD)
After Wendy Christensen {Mary Elizabeth Winstead} and her pals survive being on a roller-coaster that crashes and kills all aboard. They start getting killed off in terribly gruesome ways. Wendy, after piecing together a link to previous instances of premonition escapes, realises that death is out to finish the job it started. But can she convince the rest of her friends before death comes a calling?

What started out as a fresh and exciting idea with Final Destination in 2000, is quickly becoming tired and stinking of a cash cow franchise. Don't get me wrong, FD3 contains new and ingenious ways to off a bunch of pretty and annoying teenagers, but death literally has lost its sting, he's no longer a threat. Not even the voice of Tony Todd {interestingly absent}, as used here, can rouse one from the slumbers. Even as I write this we are about to be privy to part four in the series, "The Final Destination," with the gimmick of 3D serving only as a tool to entice those in who are jaded by the formula that FD refuses to break free from.

I own the film, in fact the two disc DVD is a whole bunch of fun {make sure to turn your surround sound up for the roller-coaster segments}. But better deaths do not a better film make, and Final Destination 3 ends up being a run of the mill horror picture that's even forgot how to have fun, and that is something that pains, and gnaws away with each and every viewing of it. 5.5/10
