  • Summary: On what should have been a fun-filled day at the races, Nick O'Bannon has a horrific premonition in which a bizarre sequence of events causes multiple race cars to crash, sending flaming debris into the stands, brutally killing his friends and causing the upper deck of the stands to collapseOn what should have been a fun-filled day at the races, Nick O'Bannon has a horrific premonition in which a bizarre sequence of events causes multiple race cars to crash, sending flaming debris into the stands, brutally killing his friends and causing the upper deck of the stands to collapse on him. When he comes out of this grisly nightmare, Nick panics, persuading his girlfriend, Lori, and their friends, Janet and Hunt, to leave...escaping seconds before Nick's frightening vision becomes a terrible reality.
    Thinking they've cheated death, the group has a new lease on life, but unfortunately for Nick and Lori, it is only the beginning. As his premonitions continue and the crash survivors begin to die one-by-one--in increasingly gruesome ways--Nick must figure out how to cheat death once and for all before he, too, reaches his final destination.

  1. Too many digital effects ruin the spell of a tactile world of evil objects scheming your demise. But even a mediocre FD is better than more Jigsaw.
  2. It's no exaggeration to say that the actors have less personality than the pipes, nail guns, grinding gears, decaying beams, and slowly spreading oil spills that are fused, with a kind of empty-dread technical precision, into Rube Goldberg torture devices.
  3. If you like your gore hardcore, you'll want to head straight for "Halloween II." But if you're happy to ease around a slightly smaller track, look no further.

    The Rube Goldberg variations are repetitive and devoid of the visual snap that helped distinguish James Wong’s "Final Destination" (2000).
  5. There used to be entertainment in the dodging and wit in the scripts; now there’s 3-D.

    With an array of gory mayhem only marginally enhanced by 3-D and a plot as developed as a text message, The Final Destination may finally sound the death knell for New Line's near-immortal horror franchise.

    As mesmerizing as watching bread toast. Death, be not proud, indeed.

    Poor 3D effects (in the DVD) but hey, it comes with 3d glasses which can be used elsewhere.

    Despite being a huge fan of Final Destination and other splatter films, I'm quite disappointed with this Final Destination 4. The death scenesDespite being a huge fan of Final Destination and other splatter films, I'm quite disappointed with this Final Destination 4. The death scenes aren't as inventive as the previous ones. But I like that swimming pool scene although it doesn't look very realistic. I never like this director's style in Final Destination 2, and I still don't in this one. Expand

    A few odd bits of humor through out, Weak special effects, Below average acting, and a plot that has absolutely no depth what so ever. TheA few odd bits of humor through out, Weak special effects, Below average acting, and a plot that has absolutely no depth what so ever. The only good thing about The Final Destination is that it actually makes use of 3D. Aside from that, It's pretty trashy. Expand

    Worst in the series. Horrible ending and some of the worst acting of them all. Intro credits were the best part. It went downhill from there.
