In this third installment of the Final Destination series, a student's premonition of a deadly rollercoaster ride saves her life and a lucky few, but not from death itself which seeks out those who escaped their fate.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead,
When a massive power outage plunges the city of Detroit into total darkness, a disparate group of individuals find themselves alone. The entire city's population has vanished into thin air, leaving behind heaps of empty clothing, abandoned cars and lengthening shadows. Soon the daylight begins to disappear completely, and as the survivors gather in an abandoned tavern, they realize the darkness is out to get them, and only their rapidly diminishing light sources can keep them safe.

In multiple scenes the chemical lights aren't apparently lit, despite having been just recently activated. They should remain lit for several hours. However, it is made clear from quite early on in the movie that energy, whether it be in the form of electricity or combustion, isn't behaving in expected ways. It is therefore not unreasonable to assume chemical lights would be affected as well. See more »
You um, do you uh, your light...
What? Oh, uh, I'm such a moron.
How's the movie?
Ah you know, Adam Sandler gets in a mess, wife gets pissed, runs from some people... predictable, formulaic, fart jokes. You wouldn't like it.
Mmm. How would you know what I like?

Quite frankly when I sit down to watch a film like this I'm not expecting fireworks, but I do like to be entertained. That being said, this film lacks everything, apart from production value. Honestly, that's it. There is nothing I hate more than a movie that does not deliver on, plot, character development and sense. Yes, sense. Strangely these, things, can turn off any light they want apart from when it deviates from the ridiculous storyline (what there was of it), and the addition of momentary dogma from one character, which was quickly forgotten, is a tragic if not rife Hollywood device which never goes anywhere. It is in all it's tragic glory a sad reminder of the tripe that passes as screen-writing these days. I could go on longer, or indeed put this in paragraphs, but just like the film-makers, I just can't be arsed.
