Verdict on Final Destination 3
Final Destination 3 is the third chapter in the horror movie series. We follow the next group of survivors as they deal with the consequences of surviving. However, death is waiting to catch them in a strange series of accidents picking the survivors off.
This movie decides to only reference the events of the previous movies. It has the wildly over-the-top idea behind the first accident, which is often seen as the highlight of the sequel movies. All this before we run into a series of weird accidents along the way. The movie is filled with crazy ideas behind the accidents that are all created to make you paranoid about the simplest locations. This one focuses on a series of silly mistakes from fellow survivors instead of the uncertainty about life which made the original such an interesting horror.
Final Thoughts – Final Destination 3 is a fun horror sequel with a host of wacky deaths.
