(Review originally written at 28 July 2010)
This seems to be one of those sequels that got shot back-to-back with another. And like strangely so often enough, this sequel turned out much better than the other one actually.
This time it actually does follow a decent story, that offers some tension and mystery as well. It's the last part of the trilogy and I don't think any other sequels will come, since the story got pretty much closed. And it's not like this is a profitable enough franchise for the studios to cash in on anyway.
It also probably is the least confusing movie out of the trilogy. It's pretty much being straight-forward and it doesn't spend too much time lingering, or trying to give the story multiple layers and deeper meanings to it all. It makes this the most pleasant one to watch out of the entire trilogy, as well. The movie keeps flowing well at all time and manages to remain interesting throughout, though it still perhaps falls kind of flat toward the end.
Its effects also work out better in this one. It actually all serves a purpose and I can also say that this movie works out better as an horror as well. Not that the horror fans or anyone else will go crazy about this movie but it just happens to be so that it's all being a positive improvement over the previous sequel.
Unlike the second movie, this movie pretty much follows the events of the previous movie. It of course helped that both movies got shot back-to-back. It pretty much continues on the same story and follows some of the same characters but also introduces some new ones. These are all good things for this movie.
Simply a good and watchable third and final(?) installment.
