MV5BMTg2MzI0MzczOF5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwNzAyODExMw@@__V1_UX182_CR0,0,182,268_AL_Review (Spoils): The storyline is pretty much the same as the last two. We have the young beautiful people of Hollywood in a film in which they are all having fun and a teen has a vision and does something to save people for the disaster happens. Death gets pissed off because it got cheated so it starts to knock each young person off on by on in order of sequence it should of happen.

A roller coaster ride is involved in this one, lots of gore, clues on how people are to die, lots of blood and the CGI is semi okay but it is noticeable unfortunate. James Wong is great and you can tell he had his hands on this one as we reinvented the same wheel from the first film but the twist of death actually playing a game with the teens is a nice interesting twist.

Rating: I’m going to be honest when I first watched this film I was not expecting much as I normally hate Hollywood horror films and being the 3rd in a series I thought it would be lacking. It actually was not bad for the 3rd film in a series.  It’s entertaining and the deaths are laughable….so grab some beers and enjoy!

Review (Spoils):  Alex (Devon Sawa) board’s a plane and gets a weird graphic vision about a plane crash and all are involved in it. He freaks out and he and some of his colleagues get exhorted from the flight and lord behold it crashes. Death is not happy and he is coming back and knocking each one off one by one with freak accidents in the order of the plane crash vision.

This is a great storyline and it was unique. The graphic intro vision of the plane is over the top and it keeps you on the edge of the seat. Yes this movie screams teenage type film but we are outside of the cheesy lines and love stories and more into “how are we going to escape death”? The acting is average but the whole point of the film is graphic over the top accidents which makes this film a classic for its time.   We have hangings, brick smashing, bus smashing and a nasty shard of metal flying. The series is known for its nasty kills.

Rating:  This is the first of a unique and great series. The opening sequence is one of the best accident scenes out there and the storyline of death is coming back to take what was stolen from him is a great idea.
