No aeroplane or traffic accident this time, in this third Final Destination film, it’s a roller coaster which the main character cheats death on, leading to more of the same from the previous two movies.
It’s difficult to care when the characters are so boring, but alas, it’s only 93 minutes of a waste of time.
I enjoyed the first Final Destination movie for bringing something new to the genre, but after two movies, the same formula gets tired and I can’t help but wonder if it needed to be a franchise at all. Clearly the studio did and wanted to squeeze every last penny out of it.
