Goofs

(at around 39 mins) Nick says he can't be sure who is next to die, Hunt or Janet, because in his premonition, they were both killed in the same collapse. However, he is confident that George dies before Lori even though in his premonition, they were both killed by the same explosion. See more »

As a movie, it's terrible. As a Final Destination movie, it is incredible.
3 September 2009 | by juiceman10712See all my reviews

This entry to the series takes a different approach. From the moment I saw the X-rayed-death-scene opening credit sequence with the hard rock cover of the creepy main theme of the series, I knew that the movie was not to be taken seriously, and a little help from the third dimension drove that idea home.

The Final Destination is a caricature of itself and the the entire series for that matter. This film was made with the knowledge that people still see these films for the ridiculously over the top and creative death scenes. Its like watching the trap go off in mouse trap; Its the only thing people came for.

There are about a dozen deaths in this entry as opposed to the regular 6-8 and the majority of them are fairly lengthy. Little attention is payed to the story or the characters but why bother? We've seen all this before? And I find that the hammy dialogue that the characters do manage to sputter out, only enhances the self-parody.

Fans of the series are either going to love it or think its OK and almost everyone else will hate it. SO If you've stuck it out through the other 3 films, check it out, and don't take it seriously.
