Did You Know?


The Final Destination series began when Flight 180 crashed in Final Destination (2000). At the race track, the victims are seated in area 180 (as shown on a sign behind them) and the video camera footage briefly shows the number on the screen and a bus in the final scene is clearly marked on the roof as number 180.

A pump cannot suck at 160 psi a mere three meters under water. The total pressure of water and atmosphere at that depth is 20 psi. Since 0 psi is the lowest achievable pressure, Hunt cannot be subjected to more than 20 psi. A mere 20 psi pressure difference would not cause the spectacular effect seen in the movie. It would at most give him an embarrassing hickey (and drown him). See more »


Nick: There's gonna be a huge crash.
Hunt Wynorski: Of course there's a crash. There's always a fucking crash.

Bad acting/Stale Ideas/Not enough 3D
29 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First off 7.3? That has got to be a joke. This movie had nothing going for it besides the 3D effect, which was not used well in my opinion. The trailer for the scrooge movie used it better/more. Besides the fact the 3D was not used well, the acting was dreadful, even by horror movie standards(what happened to Bubba from Forrest Gump?) and the director did not take advantage of what he could have done with the 3D, it was like he read a book on directing and just did all the basic shots you are taught, when he could have got really creative with it.

Sure if your 14 maybe its tolerable, but if you have any knowledge of how real movies should be made, save yourself.I wish the my final destination would have hit me before I watched this useless trash.
