(at around 6 mins) The car that caused the crash is number 45 and this is the fourth "Final Destination" film. 45 times 4 is 180, the flight number from the first film. See more »
(at around 1h 13 mins) The sprinkler system that saves the movie theater would not work. Water cannot put out a chemical fire, you would need a foam system, and not only would it not put it out but it would spread the fire and make it wider. See more »
That's the car that's gonna crash. We have to get out of here.
Thank God, I don't...
What? No, no, I've got 500 dollars in that one, and I told you that...
No one cares about the money we have...
No, look! We've got to get the fuck out of here! Okay? Something's gonna happen, we are all gonna die! All right? 'Cause there's gonna be a crash!

For me, a rating of 5 out of 10 means I didn't like the movie, but I didn't hate it either.
"The Final Destination" is a 3D horror thriller gimmick. Even though I saw this in 2D, there were many elements that were very obviously designed to be in 3D to take full advantage of the medium.
However, the film itself just isn't good.
The acting is terrible. The story is formulaic. There's nothing really interesting as far as the plot. No discussion of death. No new interesting concepts. Lots of fluff in the form of false kills. And the entire film from the opening credits to the closing credits is about the methods in which these people die.
What this movie is really about is killing young, attractive individuals in a manner which will compliment the 3D. Nothing else. It's just killing people using a Rube Goldberg device or a flying object in 3D.
Some of the special effects are good, and a few of the deaths are interesting, however, the film doesn't really do anything for me. It's just kind of there. I don't really hate it, but I don't really like it either. I also don't really care for 3D in general. I think it's a stupid way of getting you to pay a little extra, like IMAX (which is a bigger screen and some extra speakers. Yaay).
Overall, if you like the 3D gimmick; you're just looking for a movie to take a few friends to and have a little fun; and you don't really care about plot, characters, or story, you might have some fun. To anyone else, I wouldn't really recommend it. It's just a studio gimmick and can be easily ignored.
5/10 - Nothing special.
