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.

Critic Reviews for Final Destination 3

All Critics (116) | Top Critics (29)

Once more, Wong raises questions of fate and predestination and, while throwing in a tasteless reference to 9/11, fails to address them. It's an orgy of cheerful carnage with no context or purpose and, worst of all, no suspense.

The people in this movie are some of the stupidest people in the history of movies.

February 16, 2006

As a horror flick, Final Destination 3 is literally laughable.

February 10, 2006 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

The Final Destination movies may be pointless and crass, but they play on that fascination with malicious efficiency, and 3 is no exception.

February 10, 2006 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Fans of cheap thrills can enjoy FD3 for what it is: A ridiculous teen horror movie that piles on more than enough dry humor and freshly moistened gore to satisfy its lowbrow audience.

February 10, 2006 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

If you're a Final Destination fan, it's unlikely that #3 will disappoint. If you like horror/thrillers with plenty of cartoonish blood and gore, this will hit the spot.

Audience Reviews for Final Destination 3

Morgan and Wong are back for this third film, only with no originality. Everything here is a rehash of the first installment, predictable and gory, with a roller coaster accident instead of an airplane. The tone aims for seriousness but with poor dialogue and an end that is dull and stupid.

This movie is better than the second one but still not as good as the first movie. a group of young people avoid death at a fun fair but death picks them off one by one. The sun bed scene is really horrible.
