In truth there's nothing especially bad about THE FINAL DESTINATION . There is I hasten to add absolutely nothing good enough to want to make you rush out and spend money on a cinema ticket fot it either . It is merely a marketing tool in order to extend a franchise that reached its zenith in the second movie and now proves there's only a limited number of ways you can kill off characters in a film before audiences stifle a yawn . Perhaps the fact that the only difference between this film's title and the original is a THE tells us all we need to know as to how much creative work went in to it ?
There is of course the small gimmick of it being shot in 3D went merely remains a gimmick. 3D movies didn't catch on it the 1980s and they won't catch on 30 years later despite the studios trying their worst . It also means
1 ) The camera angles are unnatural
2 ) If you're watching this on a 2D television then the framing of the movie is unnatural and irritating
There might be a third point and that is cinema still remains a narrative driven art form and no matter how a film is shot then if you're not compelled by the premise or plotting then everything else is secondary
As some people have pointed this sequel does seem to talk down to its audience somewhat by having signs saying a certain container is combustible etc . This is a flaw and you get the feeling that it's made entirely for dumb teenagers . Certainly the film does have dumb adolescents as protagonists which is a flaw because of of the major strong points of FD2 which makes it the best film in the series is that it contained a wide cross section of the public demographic where as whining adoslecents don't evoce much sympathy
