  1. An unexpectedly alert teen-scream disaster chiller.
  2. Playful and energized enough to keep an audience guessing.

    OK premise quickly deteriorates into a silly, badly acted slasher movie -- minus the slasher.

    Starts by cheating death and ends by cheating us.
  5. Meets the low standards of a mediocre TV movie.

    You'll definitely feel cheated -- especially when you keep on finding yourself thinking how Mulder and Scully would have handled it all.
  7. 0
    Inane, irresponsible, immature, poorly written.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Final destination is a very good movie i highly recommend it, and Tony Todd in one scene which is my favourite scene in the whole movie is freaking good he should have been in the movie with more scenes but still a really good movie. Expand

    One of my favourite horror thrillers ever, the plot is genius and the effects are dazzling while being scary.

    This is where the infamous series started that has now spawned a further four sequels! Now it's obvious that this is a very corny series so as long as you don't take it too seriously then you're bound to enjoy these films :) This is probably the best regarding the acting and characters, but the corniest regarding 'death' trying to kill the kids. Overall a nice new twist on the somewhat predictable genre, and the beginning of a great series of twisted and gory Horror films! Expand

    To be honest, "Final Destination" is a decent horror film. It's quite smart and keeps the tension going and overall resembles a good original shocker. The plot is very ridiculous and silly though. Expand
