I'm a fan of Final Destination, but it needs to retire.
I'm a certified EMT-B and trained as a Medic with the United States Army. I don't say that to try and "impress" some anonymous face on the internet, I say that because I think my training may have ruined this movie for me.
*SPOILER* The first death (after the initial catastrophe) is a girl, about 100-120 lbs, falling no more than 6-7 feet onto a padded floor, and ending up with a compound fracture of her everything. Seriously? Even being generous, the most she'd get is a c-spine injury resulting in a less-than spectacular death caused by her spinal cord being severed. I get that's not a very glamorous death scene, and that the audience needs a lot of gore to be "impressed", but the way her body was contorted and pulverized left me sitting in my seat resisting the urge to shout "THAT WOULDN'T HAPPEN!" and pissing off the other movie goers. */SPOILER*
I'll spare everyone any further spoilers since, well, there's just too much to count. I can still say, though, that the rest of the death's, including the original catastrophe, were mostly just like the one I described in respect to unrealistic body mechanics. It's as if everyone in the universe of Final Destination is naturally born more fragile than those from our own Universe, and to be honest that ruined the sense of immersion I got from earlier movies.
It's still a very intriguing concept, and the ending really threw me off and made an impression that I liked. However, the previous movie, named "The Final Destination", I thought named that way to indicate that it's the final movie in the franchise, completely prepared me for the end of that franchise. The fact that they're still making movies, and hinting that there will be more, mixed with the poor body mechanics, saddens me. They might as well be milking it for all it's worth when it should have, and, in my mind, as an initial fan, WAS ended.
