Final Destination 3

Corrected entry: In the scene where Wendy sees them all die on the roller coaster the character with the camcorder drops it onto the track. The camcorder becomes wrapped by the strap around the track causing part of the roller coaster to derail. After the premonition Wendy panics and several people, including the camcorder guy get off, therefore the camcorder will never wrap itself round the track causing the roller coaster to derail - end film.

Correction: Already corrected once. Death has proven he can improvise if necessary. If Frank's camera wasn't on the coaster, then Death must have done something else to crash the coaster as planned. He still had to kill everyone that didn't leave the coaster, they don't get to survive just because Frank leaves.


Corrected entry: When you see the picture that Wendy took of her sister and friends, you see the Chinese girl but it shows nothing about a pole going through her.

Correction: I don't think her picture is supposed to refer to a pole. If you look at the far right edge you can see that the girls are next to the merry-go-round, and one of the white horses is coming around. The picture was hinting that Perry's death was going to be caused by a horse.

Corrected entry: When the girl and guy are in the drive-through and the guy in front of them won't move up, the truck hits their car and the engine come flying out and kills the guy in the front seat. It doesn't matter how fast you're going, an engine is ALWAYS supposed to drop vertical so neither the people in the car or outside the car would get hit by it.

Correction: Not always so. Modern cars are designed that the engine drops down if impacted from the front, so the engine doesnt land on the drivers lap. However, in the film the car is hit from the rear by a another car and the force of that impact was so great that it ripped the engine off its mountings and into the rear of the Triumph Spitfire. Car design is good, but under extreme circumstances, it won't break the laws of physics. Also, this was a truck engine and the design is completely different.


Corrected entry: The order of deaths in this film are wrong. The film states that the people who died in the roller-coaster accident will die in the exact order they died in the crash. However, Ian and Erin should have died after Julie and the Chinese girl, because if you think back to the crash; Wendy, Kevin, Ian and Erin were the last 4 people alive on the roller-coaster, as shown in the hanging upside-down bit of the accident. When it is time for the people to die, Erin dies before the Chinese girl.

Correction: They never said that they would die in the order they died in Wendy's vision. They were going to die in the order they were sitting on the coaster. Julie and Perry were sitting behind Ian and Erin.

Corrected entry: When trying to get on the rollercoaster in the beginning, Wendy and Kevin are cut off by 2 little kids. But they are asked to leave because they are not tall enough. How come death did not have a plan for them?

Correction: Because the children were never meant to get on the ride in the first place.

Corrected entry: Check out the truck that moves from the right side of the screen to the left while the guy and girl are in the drive-thru and that squashes their car against the wall. Its the EXACT same truck from Final Destination 2 that passes the 4 teens on the highway. You'll notice the big "Drink Responsibly" slogan on the side it.

Correction: The truck in FD2 is named Hice Pale Ale and is much smaller than this one and many beer trucks promote "Drinking Responsibly".


Corrected entry: At the beginning when the girl is getting very strange feelings, look when she stops near the roller coaster and suddenly the cart goes flying next to her. 1) It's impossible for a cart like that to make such a huge gust of wind to hit her. 2) She got hit by the gust of wind on the opposite side the cart was going down the track.

Correction: That was the whole point of the scene. The same "weird" things happened when a single candle blew out and a single wind chime was blown out. It was "death" that made those things happen. So the roller coaster did not make the gust. Death did.

Corrected entry: The sign that eventually kills Ian looks like a wider version of the flags from his picture. Also, his body winds up in the same position it was in in the photo.

Correction: Congratulations for the obvious observation. That was pretty much the point for Ian's death.


Corrected entry: In the clues to each persons death we find out that Ian McKinley is supposed to be involved in Wendy's death. However, he was supposed to die before her. If his death was not intervened, then he wouldn't have been able to be the cause of Wendy's death.

Correction: His death was intervened. When the pieces of wood came crashing down, Wendy pushed him and saved him. And then it was Wendy's sister, Kevin saved her, then Julie's friend was next, then Kevin who was saved by Wendy. And then it was Wendy's turn to die. So she still could have died no matter what by anything, but Death missed her, skipped her and it went back around so it was Ian's turn to die.

Corrected entry: In the main girl's vision, half of the roller coaster malfunctions generate due to the dropping of a camera on the tracks. Since the guy that dropped it did get off the roller coaster, wouldn't the coaster not have crashed and everyone died?

Correction: Death has proven he can improvise if necessary. If Frank's camera wasn't on the coaster, then Death must have done something else to crash the coaster as planned. He still had to kill everyone that didn't leave the coaster, they don't get to survive just because Frank leaves.

Corrected entry: The tanning booths that Ashly and Ashlin die in resemble a pair of large, white coffins.

Correction: That was kind of the point of having a birds eye view of both tanning beds and then suddenly cutting away to two white coffins.

Kevin Fischer: What's wrong?
Wendy Christensen: It's nothing. It's just that I'm going to be worrying about you every second while you're gone.
Kevin Fischer: Why would you worry about me? We don't even like each other, remember?



In the scene where Ashley says that they've got CDs in the tanning salon you can see Ashlyn keeping a cream tube on the table with her right hand. In the next shot you see her continuing the same action with the left hand.



The opening sequence is a foreshadow to a few of the deaths in the movie. The pinball-like game shows a picture of a woman with nails in her face (Erin), twin "electric sisters" (Ashley & Ashlyn), and daggers/swords (Lewis).
