Trivia

The "guards" in the woods are actually 3 other outcasts from school (seen on the school stairs and in the cafeteria). They are not the same outcasts as the ones in the party house, even though they are wearing the same costumes. This was meant to confuse the police when it was all over. Due to time constraints, this subplot was cut from the film, and is only subtly explained. See more »

Quotes

Bridget: [while Emily spreads a substance on Heather's face] What are you doing to her?
Dane: It's a special compound we made up. At first, she won't feel anything but a cold sensation, then a slight tingle, then a mild burn. Soon enough, it will begin to eat away at her flesh, dissolving it ever so slowly, in the most painful way imaginable, and she will become outside what she is on the inside: disgusting.

When the Predator becomes the Prey
25 March 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

"The Final" is a movie about a group of tormented teenage school kids who are constantly humiliated by the more popular and stronger bullies. This isn't the first movie to touch on the bullying subject but this movie shows what happens when the tormented finally snap and decide to take justice into their own hands in the most brutal way possible.

Unfortunately there isn't a lot to like about this movie. The storyline isn't the most original so it really needed strong performances in the acting and the way the story was told. However this failed miserably in both departments. In my opinion the movie was rushed. We got a very brief insight into the world of the bullied. We don't know enough about the characters to care for them. Both worlds (nerds and the popular) were too extreme. By the time the bullies were getting tortured, i felt no sympathy for any of them because i hated them so much. It was like they weren't human. They were programmed to be the worst of the nastiest people without a shred of remorse for their actions. So why would the viewer care what happens to them when the tables are turned? This also takes away the scary factor that the movie may have been trying to create, because all the viewer wants is for these arrogant fools to be killed so we never have to see or hear them again.

The acting. This is my biggest problem. The girls especially. Way too overacted. It was almost comedy worthy. As i said earlier, the characters seemed too extreme to be taken seriously.

Overall, an interesting idea that could have worked if it was made properly. It really felt like a group of teenagers got together to make a torture film in the style of hostel and were too impatient to get to the gruesome scenes, therefore not concentrating on the more important elements to movie making.

** for this movie
