Trivia

(at around 10 mins) When the students are boarding the airplane, Alex looks down from the jetway and sees a luggage cart with the number 666 on it. See more »

Goofs

(at around 25 mins) The newscaster said after the crash that the group consisted of 40 students and 4 teachers. This means that during the scene where they all got kicked off the plane, there was no reason for the conversation between the two teachers and the airline worker about how one of them had to get back on the plane to watch the students. There were already two other teachers on board, so the French teacher who went back on the plane in actuality would not have had to die. See more »

Quite good for a teen slasher flick
5 June 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really liked this movie. It's probably one of the better teen slasher flicks to ever hit the screen.

Let's face it: teen slasher flicks are not outstanding cinema. The writing is always lame, the plots are even lamer, they're usually vehicles for the latest trends in fashion and music and showcases of the heartthrob and/or bombshell-of-the-month. They're really just vehicles for post-pubescent hormonal stimulation.

But "Final Destination" is different. First, it has real imagination going for it. The plot is unlike your typical "madman in the corn chases teenage bombshell through puddles," it actually took some thought to put this together. It's not just shock-factor movie-making, they actually sat down and outlines how all the deaths would work in a way that keeps the plot alive. A tale of kids trying to cheat death's design is much harder to write than a dude with a chainsaw.

Then there's the death scenes themselves. Outstanding! I love a clever death scene in movies like this ... it's why you pay the $8! And these are some doozies. You can tell the filmmakers sat around for hours simply trying to find the coolest way to kill people. And if you have a sick mind (like yours truly), you'll find these death scenes simply hysterical! A really good movie. 8 out of 10. I'm giving it a high score because it's outstanding within it's genre.
