FD 3 not bad for 3rd in the series!
2 March 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was pleasantly surprised by the 3rd installment of the FINAL DESTINATION series! The worst part of the movie is the beginning and the whole roller-coaster accident, the CGI was so obvious and not real good. The first death scene was lacking any imagination and not particularly gory so it was a let down, but after that it took it up a couple notches and really won me over!! Let's face the facts we go see these types of movies for the gore factor! These types of movies aren't scary so the gore better be good and this one was! If you go in expecting great gore below average acting and a so-so story line then you won't be disappointed! I loved it for what it is supposed to be! I would recommend seeing it, buying it and showing it to your friends if you are all fans of this genre!!!
