As the roller coaster passes her on her right side, a gust of wind supposedly from the coaster blows her hair. The wind came from the left side instead of the right where the coaster passed her.

I thought i was in for a disappointment. I was wrong .........
I'm not gonna lie to ya, i wasn't looking forward to final destination 3.Just seeing a roller coaster full of screaming people on the poster made me roll my eyes and assume that this franchise has run out of steam .
So you can imagine my surprise to find that final destination 3 is a entertaining , funny and shocking thriller that proves that horror sequels can be pretty darn good if handled properly .
Directed by james wong with style and a pace that hits the ground running ,the film is very much like a roller coaster in its self - fast,packed full of laughs and most importantly full of frights .
The film is essentially a remake of the first film only with a different cast, gorier deaths and a higher level of self awareness.But this is a rare case in which copying the original isn't a bad thing- it keeps that sense of inventiveness and wit that made the first one great. It may be a clone , but its a very good one !
Final destination 3 is gory ,homourous and clever fun that will make me think twice about my horror sequel prejudice....
