    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.

  • Rene Rodriguez

    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.

    Except for the rock soundtrack, these movies could be silent - and probably should be.

    With each new outing, the Final Destination movies are getting better.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Michael Rechtshaffen

    The plot's pretty lame, the dialogue is downright hokey, and the characters are a bore, but somehow Final Destination 3 (an oxymoron if there ever was one) still delivers a certain degree of over-the-top amusement.

    Sequelcraft 101 – if you liked the others, this is more of the same. Extra points for using a nailgun on pigeons.

    Empire Full Review
  • Chuck Wilson

    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.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    What makes all of this ''fun,'' instead of dark or threatening, is that the victim was an idiot who leered at the class teases with horny glee.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    The problem with "FD3" is since it is clear to everyone who must die and in what order, the drama is reduced to a formula in which ominous events accumulate while the teenagers remain oblivious.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    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.

  • David Hiltbrand

    Fortunately for us, they number these Final Destination scarefests. Otherwise, it would be impossible to tell them apart.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    A ridiculous teen horror movie that piles on more than enough dry humor and freshly moistened gore to satisfy its lowbrow audience.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Mike Clark

    Movies of this genre don't often engage fresh concepts, but you have to give Wong major points for dreaming up "tan-line flambé."

    USA Today Full Review
  • Liam Lacey

    Yes, Final Destination 3 is a roller-coaster ride of a movie from start to -- well, only about 10 minutes later. The fun part is over and we settle down to watch a sadistic assembly line of characters making premature exits.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Marc Savlov

    A horror film (or, more accurately, a shocker film) that takes such exuberant, gleeful delight in the unspeakably gory dispatch of assorted teenagers that it may well be the most fun you'll have at the movies all week.

  • Chris Kaltenbach

    Signs of fatigue are all over the film itself.

    Baltimore Sun Full Review
  • Luke Y. Thompson

    It makes it clearer than ever before that these films are comedy. Granted, the sick kind of comedy that involves laughing at stupid people being ripped in half, but we know there are plenty of you out there.

    Dallas Observer Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    In the story's one major stroke of invention, the usual premonitions of death have been replaced with a set of photos.

    Variety Full Review
  • J.R. Jones

    If you've seen any of these, you know that the hero is always killed for her trouble, a final stroke of mordant wit.

    Chicago Reader Full Review
  • Sean Axmaker

    There's every reason to believe the creators stopped taking it seriously a long time ago. What's bothersome is that they don't take the audience seriously enough to deliver an actual movie.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • Michael Ferraro

    We are here for the gore – which this film has plenty of. Too bad it doesn't have much else.

    Film Threat Full Review
  • Michael Wilmington

    Final Destination 3 is a gorefest that should either slake your worst appetites or drive you to the exits.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Ken Fox

    The downtime between deaths has never been duller, and the Rube Goldberg-type death scenes are so poorly staged that it's difficult to figure out what's about to happen and to whom.

    TV Guide Full Review
  • Nathan Lee

    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.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Desson Thomson

    With a premise as cavalier as this, perhaps director and co-writer James Wong could have found a tone more original than post-Wes Craven cynicism. Instead, he panders to viewers, allowing them to take gleeful comfort in the destruction of the stupid and doomed.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Keith Phipps

    Fans of the genre might appreciate the decidedly R-rated violence and nudity, but that's really all the film has to offer.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Mark Holcomb

    Rote sequel that surely no one was waiting for: Like the serially thwarted Death (the only "character" to return from the first two Final Destination movies), audiences are required to endure banal exposition and junior-high-level foreshadowing before being treated to the nauseatingly detailed scenes of CGI slaughter.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Peter Rainer

    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.
