When Wendy is at her house looking at the pictures on her computer, she sees Jason's picture.He's striking the same pose as the devil and we see the roller coaster going down a hill and it looks as if it was going to hit him in the head. However, when Julie takes the picture at the beginning of the movie, the roller coaster had already passed by the devil and nowhere near Jason. See more »

Surprisingly good
2 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just got back from the world premiere of Final Destination 3 at the Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood and I must say that this film was surprisingly good. Definitely one of the gorier films that I have seen in quite some time, but very well put together and quite suspenseful. In fact, about half way through the film (during one particularly gory scene) about five audience members had to excuse themselves from the theatre. I have not seen either of the first two movies but was still able to enjoy this film so I'm sure I missed out on soem references that would have likely enhanced the experience. Still, I was quite pleased (especially because I expected the movie to be stupid) that Final Destination 3 was enjoyable for those who were not familiar with the original story. I also had the opportunity to speak with director James Wong to congratulate him a job well-done. He seems like a very nice guy.
