'Final Destination 3'
(Ryan Merriman, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Kris Lemche, Alex Johnson, et al / R / 82 mins / New Line)

Overview: A high-school senior has a premonition in which she dies in a roller coaster accident along with three of her friends. She uses her knowledge of the future event to cheat death but the Grim Reaper isn't happy about that and comes to seek his revenge.

Verdict: "FD3' is an escalating contest of can-you-top-this brutality, with each death staged as the final link in a Rube Goldberg chain reaction. But, of course you knew that before you either watched the film or read this review! And yes it still delivers a certain degree of over-the-top amusement, but where it lacks the novelty of the first; the panache of the second, 'FD3' funnels down to be nothing short of a desultorily plotted affair that feels less like a thriller than a homicidal checklist! In short, 'FD3' is a popcorn-at-home rental at its very, VERY best!
