    You'll definitely feel cheated -- especially when you keep on finding yourself thinking how Mulder and Scully would have handled it all.

    Starts by cheating death and ends by cheating us.

    Fails because it takes itself both too seriously and not seriously enough.

    You'll laugh, but you'll hate yourself by the time you're out of the theater.
  6. Even by the crude standards of teenage horror, Final Destination is dramatically flat.

    Your own final destination just might be the box office, to demand your money back.
  8. 12
    Crude and witless.
  9. Meets the low standards of a mediocre TV movie.
  10. As full of terrible acting as it is devoid of suspense.

    Stoops well below substituting style for substance.

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.

    Final Destination has original scares and a creepy atmosphere. The movie is intense and will make you
    jump with a few of the scenes. The idea that death can track you down, and you can't stop what you
    can't see is eerie. The character's can't avoid their demise because most of the aren't aware what
    Is happening. Overall a fun ride that will give you the chills but in a good way.
