Final Destination 3

Corrected entry: During Wendy's premonition, Wendy (and the audience) actually see that Ian falls off the ride before Erin does. Yet later in the film, she doesn't know which of the two died first in the premonition.

Correction: It's normal for some one to not remember all the details of a stressful situation. When she said she didn't know, it seemed she didn't remember, not that she couldn't tell.

Corrected entry: On the dvd, if you make Wendy beep again at the drive through, you save Frankie's life. But doing this creates a flaw when Ian dies, as Frankie would still be alive. Also there is no way he could have died in the minute space between Wendy's near death and Ian being cut in two.

Correction: It doesn't, seeing as when somebody's skipped, death works through the other people left in the line after that person and then, if any are left, restarts the line again.

Corrected entry: The Law of Gravity prevents the train from ever being stuck upside down in a loop; it's physically impossible. Also, coasters do not have brakes on the cars. The only moving parts on a roller coaster are the chain on the lift hill, and the brakes/brake release in the station. Once the cars leave the top of the lift hill, gravity is the only thing affecting the cars until they reach the station again. No electrical/hydraulic stuff on the cars at all.


Correction: The cars have been damaged by the camera, so it is plausible that a piece of metal acted as a braking device. Plus there has been an incidence in Switzerland where a rollercoaster has been stuck upside down for about 30 minutes, in addition another member was stuck in a coaster about 1 quarter up in a loop.

Corrected entry: In the first film the plane crash was always going to happen, nothing the teenagers did or didn't do was going to alter that. In FD2 the car crash was always going to happen, again, nothing the teenagers did was going to alter this, because again, their actions were not responsible for the crash. But in FD3 an action by someone on the coaster is why it crashed, and by that person not riding the coaster and removing the item responsible for the crash (the camera), the crash should never have happened. I accept that the teenagers escaped death, but that still doesn't change the fact that the crash simply couldn't have happened. It has been established in the movies that Death can improvise with deaths, but it has never been established Death can simply cause the crash regardless of Frankie Cheeks' involvement, because that would negate the point of the flashback.

Correction: As flashbacks are fiction, nobody can say whether they would be entirely correct or that details could be different. Now we are talking about death haunting people to fulfill his plan. He intends to let that rollercoaster crash, but Frankie leaves the coaster and the camera couldn't have fallen out, however, death could have found a different way to let the coaster crash (remember the leak in the breaking system in the flashback). Only thing we see in the "real" crash is that the coaster goes off the tracks at a highly elevated point of the tracks, not like in the flash back, where they hit the camera at the bottom and then start to fall off in the looping. There is absolutely no mistake here, and has been corrected legitimately before.

Corrected entry: When Wendy has the vision of the rollercoaster crash, after Ian and Erin falling, you see a girl fall (who is later revealed to be Julie) but there is no one next to her. Later in the movie, it was we find out that Julie's friend Perry, who dies after Julie, was sitting next to her on the rollercoaster. Right before it was revealed, Wendy asked who was sitting next to her. The picture from the rollercoaster only shows Julie, not Perry. The same with the vision.

Correction: The girl falling off of the rollercoaster with the pink hoodie after Ian and Erin with no one next to her in Wendy's vision is actually Julie's friend Perry. This is established in the scene where we first meet Julie. In this scene, Julie is shown with a blue hoodie around her waist and Perry is shown with a pink hoodie around her waist. So the whole movie was correct in that sense.

Correction: We don't even see everyone on the roller coaster, and later on when Wendy and Kevin are looking at the pictures, Kevin says something along the lines of "there's some other kids here but I can't make them out because this guy's arm is in the way", so Perry could have just been hidden by his arm.

Corrected entry: After Lewis dies and Wendy and Kevin go outside, a camera can be seen reflected when Kevin opens the car door after Wendy asks him to drive.

Correction: The reflection isn't actually of a camera, it may look like one, but it's just Wendy's reflection.

Corrected entry: In the scene at the warehouse, where Ian and Erin work, Ian is holding a nail gun. When he is lifted up on the forklift he is holding the gun pointed down, but when it cuts to a frontal shot of him, he is holding the gun pointing upwards, in front of his face.

Correction: Just as he reaches the top with the forklift the camera is looking up from his left side you can see him raise the gun up with his right hand.


Corrected entry: At the beginning of the movie, when Wendy takes a picture of Julie, she is wearing a dark pink shirt. When Wendy looks at the picture from the rollercoaster, Julie is wearing a blue shirt.

Correction: In the picture on the rollercoaster, Julie is wearing a blue hoodie over her pink shirt.


Corrected entry: Erin's head striking the nail gun would not trigger a shot. It requires a simultaneous pull of the trigger plus depressing the trigger safety (as Ian did shooting at the pigeons) to fire a nail. Some guns can be converted to "bump fire", but it requires some disassembly, and Ian would not have done that because he had not eliminated all the pigeons.

Correction: All three of these movies depict "death" manipulating objects to accomplish it's plan. "Death" could have been holding the trigger in when her head hit the safety.


Corrected entry: When the kids get off the roller coaster and the ride starts, Wendy is dragged outside by the security guards. About 5 seconds after Wendy has been dragged out the roller coaster crashes. So basically, the roller coaster managed to climb up the huge hill and crash in the space of 10 seconds, even though it took at least 30 seconds to climb the hill during Wendy's premonition.

Correction: The door she comes out of right before the coaster crashes is an access door for staff, not the exit to the ride, so there is no way to know how long there was between the ride taking off and her coming out the door with the security guard.


Corrected entry: Wendy says that the "hydraulics will rupture" when she's freaking out. If her vision ended after she was falling from the car then how would she know what the reason for the accident was unless she knew how roller coasters worked which is doubtful for an average high school teenager. (01:19:30)


Correction: I was eighth out of thirty six in my graduating class. GPA of 3.27; relatively average. I knew how roller coasters work.

Corrected entry: In Final Destination 3 doesn't Frankie Cheeks' fallen video camera cause, or contribute to, the crash?If he and his video camera weren't on the ride and if his camera didn't fall and hang on the rails of the ride, how did the second crash take place?

Correction: This has already been submitted and corrected.

Corrected entry: Kevin's photo shows a shocked expression as a camera flash has gone off close to his face. However, in the scene where Wendy takes this photo, he throws his head back, making this expression after the flash has gone off, therefore after the picture was taken, resulting in a completely different picture.

Correction: The only one to see the picture is Wendy. It was a premonition that showed the picture that way to her.

Corrected entry: On the double disc thrill-ride edition, the all-new Ashlyn and Ashley scene is ridculous. No way would Ashlyn have died from an electric shock like that, it would have taken a lot more electricity, via Ashley, to kill her.

Correction: Considering the fact that the VAC was constantly rising due to the dripping water, by the time Ashlyn woke up the voltage might have reached high enough to kill both girls.

Corrected entry: Directly after Wendy has her premonition of the roller coaster crashing, we see her holding the camera out in front of her and we see the roller coaster guy waving at her to put the camera away. Watch closely and you'll notice that Wendy never actually presses the shutter button - she does in the premonition, but not in 'real' life. Later in the movie, on multiple occasions, we see this shot on the camera, (as Wendy figures out Julie was on the roller coaster) and it doesn't make sense because Wendy never took the photo.

Correction: She had the premonition as she took the picture. When we see her after the premonition she has already taken it, that's why we don't see her pressing the button.

Corrected entry: The sunbed scene is totally unrealistic. There are always emergency stop buttons inside the canopy that automatically cut the power. Secondly the 2 girls would never have got so burned that their skin would blister, in such a short period of time regardless of how much power overload there may have been.


Correction: The entire tanning business they went to was very shady. The settings of the booth were outside of the booth, so it is not unsafe to say that the emergency button was there too. UV rays are very powerful and to be exposed at such a close range at such a high power would defiantly blister the skin in about three to four minutes. The blisters on the skin and the skin popping and splitting is completely realistic.

Corrected entry: How are Wendy's pictures, taken before her and her friends got on the rollercoaster, supposed to say how they died if death's design was for them to all die on the ride? If there were something in the pictures related to their death, aside from anything to do with the rollercoaster ride, then the actual "design" was for them to make it off the ride alive and die a different way later.

Correction: It can be stressed that the camera should have been destroyed in the crash, since it was in Kevin's pocket. With that consideration, it would make sense then that the pictures the camera had taken were reflective of the fate both it and the teenagers' should have suffered.

Corrected entry: During the tanning scene, the top bulbs of Ashley's tanning bed shatter, scattering the shards all over her and the bottom of the bed. In the next few shots, just before the glass below her breaks, the broken shards have disappeared.

Correction: They haven't disappeared. Some are still there, and others have been knocked away, as Ashley squirms and wriggles around in the tanning bed.

Corrected entry: The make of camera that Wendy uses to take pictures round the amusement park is a Lumex. When she plugs it up to her PC at home to view the pictures the computer registers a Panasonic camera.


Correction: Panasonic manufacture the Lumix range of cameras. This is not a mistake. Lumix is a model of camera, not the brand. Panasonic is the brand.

Corrected entry: During the tanning bed/Wendy freak-out sequence, it seems that night has fallen at Wendy's house, but it's still daylight outside the salon (an anomaly which facilitates tanning?).

Correction: Because there is a thunderstorm during this sequence, it's possible that it is darker at Wendy's house because of storm clouds.
