  1. Though its story is fuzzy, the acting and direction in Final give it an air of quiet, dignified ambition.

    The film's acting is superb. Best known as a gritty wiseass, Denis Leary creates a fine dramatic performance.

    Actor-turned-director Campbell Scott handles this enigmatic science fiction mystery with such gloomy restraint that it barely moves. That said, it never panders to audience expectations and is exceptionally well acted. Bill Tyler.
  4. The cat-and-mouse game between the patient and doctor and the coy is-he-or-isn't-he? game being played on us by the filmmakers becomes tiring.
  5. Less than terrific technically; focus and sound levels waver. Luckily, these flaws are not inconsistent with the film's raw, unvarnished tone and they do not diminish the effect of Leary's performance or that of Davis.
