James Wong
Released:
2006
Rating:
R

Final Destination 3 is the third and final chapter in the popular horror franchise that the brings back original creators Glen Morgan and James Wong (The X-Files, Willard, Black Christmas) for a final, balls out outing. This movie follows the same formula as the previous two films. If one doesn't know the basic plot, it sums down to this: Death has a plan for how humans die and one of each film's characters sees a glimpse of that plan and throws it all out of whack by 'cheating' death. So, in this story, the heroine Wendy, played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead, has a vision that the roller coaster she's about to go on crashes because of a faulty leak and a broken track. Since she sees this death, before she starts the ride, she and six other people, screw up death's plan to have them all die on the ride. Chaos then ensues and viewers get to watch each person die in the way of a snuff film. Was also shot in 3-D.

    The New York Times

    The third installment lacks the novelty of the first, the panache of the second and the twisted sense of humor that gives the series its participatory sense of fun.
