~~ Review Script ~~
This disappointing 3rd sequel to the fresh and original 2000 hit somehow managed to gross over 180 million dollars - which, despite what those Hollywood executebots say, may result in yet another sequel. And that's the biggest problem I had with this film - no one asked for a sequel, let alone three of them. For those out of the loop, the plot of this movie, like all films in the Final Destination series, revolves around a small group of teens and 20-somethings who die a gruesome death in the film's opening scene. Thanks to the lead protagonist's death-preventing premonition however, none of the main characters die on that particular day. Lucky for us, they're slowly killed off one at a time for the remainder in the movie in bizarre and coincidental ways, in the same order they would have died in the original accident. And awesome... that was a cool, and original concept - ten years ago! Today, everyone in the audience knows what's going to happen, even the red-herrings are easy to spot from 10-shots away. Since everyone in the previous films are dead, we're given a fresh new cast of meatbags to watch die. None of them can act, and none of the female leads take their clothes off, so really - watching them get sucked into a swimming pool's drainage pipe is our only source of entertainment here from a movie that really fails on every level - except at being a high-brow snuff film. Although I did catch this movie in BluRay, I sadly wasn't able to snag a 3D version of the film - but I have to assume such a gimmick would only serve to assist this movie's shock and scare value, more than anything else. Luckily though, at an incredibly short 82-minutes in length, this mindless death-fest of bad acting and horrible dialogue is over before you really have time to process just how bad it really is. The one positive thing I can say about this movie is that the special effects and kill-scenes are, as always, a morbidly delightful treat to watch.
