  1. An unexpectedly alert teen-scream disaster chiller.
  2. Playful and energized enough to keep an audience guessing.
  3. 50
    OK premise quickly deteriorates into a silly, badly acted slasher movie -- minus the slasher.
  4. Reviewed by: Jay Carr
    Starts by cheating death and ends by cheating us.
  5. Meets the low standards of a mediocre TV movie.
  6. Reviewed by: Gemma Files
    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.

    A fun movie with great plot that shows us how every day things could kill us. I remember the first time I watched this I was so fascinated with the way the characters died. Expand

    A very teen movie! Just look the effects the deaths, it's just in the right and balanced ways... I was really surprised on this movie, I can't believe that a movie like this will airs... Expand

    Final Destination, one of the most creative horror or thriller movies out there. This was the beginning of a franchise that if infamous for having some of the craziest deaths in cinema, and some f the most cliche characters and bad acting, but that's not really a bother. This movie is a load of fun, and has some great deaths and funny scenes. Check it out if you haven't seen it. 7/10 Expand

    The concept is extremely original and kind of creepy. The character development is also good and you really do care about almost everyone in this movie. The only flaw was that for large amounts of time nothing big happened so you sort of get bored at first. But once it gets going it's pretty entertaining. Expand

    It's ok, it has an above average plot and above average acting for this kind of movie, however with all the better movies in this genre it only comes across as slightly above average. Expand

    I really think this movie has a great story to start with. But what James Wong made out of this story is just sad. And with sad I mean sad in a way of “How could you transform such a nice story in a movie as bad as this?”. It's not that type of movie where everything is bad, I have to say that the score created fine suspense, the acting was really not as bad as I expected, and there were some good shots in. Yet, the screenplay. HOW BAD WAS THIS SCREENPLAY? I'm honestly surprised that it didn't receive credit at the Golden Raspberry Awards. I mean, the ending of this movie was so illogical and stupid. I wasn't expecting a good screenplay, but this was just too much for me. And, oh, the dialogue. There were dialogue parts in this movie that created a new unit of stupidity. This movie is actually the best example if you want to prove that the screenplay is the most important part of the movie because with an at least okay screenplay this film would've been a lot better, but it's just totally like this. Being entertained by people getting killed is sick in any case but if you are entertained by a movie as bad as this, you seriously need some help. Expand
