Overly long, but mostly interesting look at a solid horror movie
24 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

Over the years, the making-of documentaries featured on DVDs have become more and more complex, more in depth, and in many cases, more unnecessary. Such is the case of KILL SHOT: THE MAKING OF FINAL DESTINATION 3. Shot from pre-production of FD3 up until post-production, it follows basically every step of the film-making process, some of which is great material, and some of which just seems like filler. A good portion of what is seen and heard seems for promotional purposes only. Producers hype up their film, talk about how supposedly deep it is, how it's not just another teen slasher picture, etc. Director James Wong, while very engaging to listen to, comes across as somewhat full of himself at times while co-writer Glen Morgan is barely given enough time to speak. Still, there's enough here for fans of the Final Destination fans to dig into. 6/10
