Originally intended for a 3D release new line couldn't get theaters to upgrade to the new format in time. This one starts with a horrible but slightly disappointing rollercoaster accident sequence. It feels like a straight up comedy to me but the death setpieces are both hilarious and shocking. Mary Elizabeth Winstead (Live free or Die Hard) stars as the girl trying to save everyone and cutie Ryan Merriman (Ring 2) stars as another potential victim going along for the ride. The movie is fun but it sadly skips the progress made with the second film feeling like more of a reboot. Regardless it's still entertaining even though it doesn't reach the height of the previous film.
