So this movie has been out for a few weeks now, but I wanted to review it anyway. This is supposed to be billed as the last of the â€œDestinationâ€ films and it interested me as to what they could do with this story in 3D. In this one Nick Oâ€™Bannon (Bobby Campo), goes with his friends, Lori (Shantel VanSanten), Hunt (Nick Zano), and Janet (Haley Webb) to an automobile race where he has a premonition of a horrible car crash that ends up killing him and his friends. After he convinces them all to leave, his premonition comes true and there is a disastrous accident at the race track. Nick believes that his day dream has saved the lives of him and his friends, till other people, who survived, because of his outburst at the stands, start to die. Nick must now try to stop everyone’s fate before itâ€™s too late.
Now if youâ€™ve seen any of the other films in this series, then you know that death doesnâ€™t like to be cheated on and will come for you when itâ€™s your time to go. So thatâ€™s basically the same premise in this one, only now itâ€™s in 3D. All the accidents, all the gore, and the bloody horror are right there in your face. I actually enjoyed this movie on its entertainment level, for shock and disgusting images. I feel the â€œDestinationâ€ films have always brought some of the best gore movies to date. Itâ€™s not about the story, although the original one was the best story because it was fresh and new. Even the second one had a pretty good storyline, because it just really continued to new people in that one. Then the whole premonition thing got kind of tired and worn out…but there were always great scenes of blood splattering mayhem, and finely designed mishaps that turned into disastrous results for our victims and thatâ€™s why these movies have always gotten my money. This one was no different. The accidents were spectacular, and their deaths were never boring. They have found possibly every creative way to have someone die from a freak accident in these 4 films.
The 3D wasnâ€™t really necessary, because youâ€™re not really put into the accident, but more like youâ€™re in the surroundings of the incidents. All in all I had a good time seeing this movie and I give it 2 accidents out of 4. It was good as far as its shock value and that basically all youâ€™re going to get by this time around. The movie runs 1hr. and 22 min. Now while Iâ€™m on that, let me say this. The movie theaters have decided with these new wave of 3D movies, they are going to charge $3 dollars or more to buy the glasses to actually see the movie. Then at the end of the movie your expected to throw away your glasses into a recycling bin. Now you just spent up to $16 per ticket to see this movie, and then basically throw 3 or more dollars away. I for one kept my glasses and the next time I go to see another 3D movie and they try to sell me glasses, I will say thatâ€™s ok I brought my own. I suggest you all do the same. That is if you want to have money to buy those expensive treats that go along with your viewing pleasure.
