    Peter Hartlaub San Francisco Chronicle

    A ridiculous teen horror movie that piles on more than enough dry humor and freshly moistened gore to satisfy its lowbrow audience. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    Movies of this genre don't often engage fresh concepts, but you have to give Wong major points for dreaming up "tan-line flambé." show more

    Fortunately for us, they number these Final Destination scarefests. Otherwise, it would be impossible to tell them apart. show more

    Elizabeth Weitzman New York Daily News

    After a fiendish start, filmmakers James Wong and Glen Morgan approach their task with all the subtlety of a hammer to the head (or a knife to the gut, or an ax to the back). They do, at least, find a mordant humor in the formula. show more

    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    The plot's pretty lame, the dialogue is downright hokey, and the characters are a bore, but somehow Final Destination 3 (an oxymoron if there ever was one) still delivers a certain degree of over-the-top amusement. show more

    Week in and week out, horror movies cheat us, so it's wonderfully cathartic to watch a bunch of kids cheat death in what turns out to be the best installment yet in the "Final Destination" franchise. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    A welcome antidote to the depressing, feel-bad sadism of recent horror hits like Hostel and Saw II, Final Destination 3 puts the fun back in watching stupid people die Rube Goldberg-elaborate, ridiculously gory deaths. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    The problem with "FD3" is since it is clear to everyone who must die and in what order, the drama is reduced to a formula in which ominous events accumulate while the teenagers remain oblivious. show more

    When we lose faith in the slashers and monsters, we can still always rely on the beauty of the Final Destination films. Very unique and twisted.
