    Week in and week out, horror movies cheat us, so it's wonderfully cathartic to watch a bunch of kids cheat death in what turns out to be the best installment yet in the "Final Destination" franchise.

    A welcome antidote to the depressing, feel-bad sadism of recent horror hits like Hostel and Saw II, Final Destination 3 puts the fun back in watching stupid people die Rube Goldberg-elaborate, ridiculously gory deaths.

    Director James Wong and co-writer Glen Morgan seem, in this film's creaky first third, to be working on automatic pilot, but they gradually cut loose, staging one imaginative and gleefully gruesome death after another.
  4. Signs of fatigue are all over the film itself.
  5. After a fiendish start, filmmakers James Wong and Glen Morgan approach their task with all the subtlety of a hammer to the head (or a knife to the gut, or an ax to the back). They do, at least, find a mordant humor in the formula.

    We are here for the gore – which this film has plenty of. Too bad it doesn't have much else.
  7. There's nothing fresh or off-beat in Final Destination 3, no talent that is struggling to get out. The only thing struggling to get out was me from the theater.

The roller coaster deaths are very brutal that makes the movie a perfect horror movie. It does manage the formula of horrors with brutal or gory deaths. It does good. I hope the Final Destination 5 makes an another perfect formulatic horror movie. Expand

    I thought it was clever and really quite amusing. My date was scared silly - and loved it.

This is a cool movie, but isn't as good as the first two. Fun film. 6/10 Expand

Rather than using jump scares, it makes you feel disturbed after watching the movie by giving you the impression you could die anytime. However, the ending was not so good as there were no survivors.

    This is NOT a good movie no matter how you look at it although given what it's supposed to be (a mindless splatter movie) it entertains This is NOT a good movie no matter how you look at it although given what it's supposed to be (a mindless splatter movie) it entertains and leaves you in suspense here and then.the problems mainly lye with the character development and the acting.It doesn't even attempt to make you care for these charachters and the acting is less than passable.The dialogue lacks and the script is a poorly written one but in the end you can't help but love the death scenes.

    this is the worse of the three movies by far. I like the first one, and loved the second one even more. Not only was the acting terrible but this is the worse of the three movies by far. I like the first one, and loved the second one even more. Not only was the acting terrible but the plot related back to the first final destination a lot like the second one did. however none of it made any sense, atleast in the second one there was a tie in from the first movie. even the deaths weren't that creative. It's amazing how the second movie seemed to go two steps further in chaos, while the 3rd movie seemed to take 3 steps back, bad transiiton from scene to scene also killed this movie. Expand
