Format: DVD
This suspenseful cult movie is one of the few horror flicks of the last years that actually has an intriguing idea and a decent execution.
Alex Browning (Devon Sawa) is a teen student that is about to enter a plane in order to go to Paris with his classmates. Before he enters it, he starts seeing visions, premonitions and strange allucinations that force him to believe that something is terribly wrong. That feeling is enhanced when he enters the plane, and suddently feels that it is about o explode. So, Alex goes hysterical and leaves the plane along with six people, and afterwars it (surprise!) explodes. This is just the beginning of the process, as Alex soon discovers that death will be back to take the lives of those who escaped the explosion.
The concept is interesting and, although most of the movie`s strenght relies in its more nightmarish/ paranoid first twenty minutes, director James Wong ("X-Files", "Milennium") still knows how to keep things going in a surprising way. The death scenes are not only creative and thrilling, but also darkly comic. The atmosphere is gloomy with some appropriate blue tones, the score efficient and the acting satisfying. The character development could be better, but it`s still decent, and the timing and suspense are good.
This, like "Scream", is an edgy, clever picture, that also goes for the tongue-in-cheek approach (especially in the second half) and a fine horror movie about Generation X (it even has a dark, unsettling, mysterious mood).
A good one.

There I was, summer of 2001, the night before I left home to start a new life at Grad School in the States and I get together with my high-school buddies to kill one last keg and watch one last movie, and some smart-arse has to choose...Final Destination!
I swear, the plane rides I had the next day were pure skin-crawling, bowel-loosening terror.
Final Destination has an interesting enough premise - can you escape destiny? After a premonition and a messy, graphic, boy-am-I-glad-I'm-not-flying-tomorrow plane crash, 7 kids find themselves in this exact situation - They've cheated death, but for how long?
Well, about 98 minutes should do it...
The film was made by the Morgan/Wong partnership who were responsible for a lot of the early X-files episodes, you know, the good ones. You can see that influence seeping through into this film, with a malevolent, unstoppable, anonymous killer and a brilliant sense of timing, suspense and action help raise this above standard teen horror fare. Not that far above mind you, but the plot inconsistencies are swept away by the drama and the slightly daft premise is obscured by the rising tension.
Final Destination isn't going to set the world on fire, but there are far worse ways to spend an evening... As they say in the movie, you can't beat a good bit of cabbage!

I didn't have great hopes for this film but I was mildly, and pleasantly surprised. I had expected the first movie, repeated. Admittedly, on the face of it, that is what you get. But FD2 takes things a step further by showing that the events of the second film take place because of the events of the first film. They are connected far more deeply than simply being "another batch of people that escape death".
The effects are well done and striking, as in the first movie, this time focusing on a road accident rather than an air crash. And, of course, death's efforts to "put things right" by offing those that escaped the road accident are the usual level of weird and seemingly impossible twists of chance that we grew used to in the first movie.
Although I welcomed the plot development, linking this movie to the first one, the whole movie was never scary, as such. It's plenty gruesome enough (see the barbed wire scene, for example), but not very frightening. After some thought, I think this is in part due to the fact that I have recently been watching the series "Dead Like Me". Every time in the movie that things seemed to take on a life of their own, I was imagining Gravelings prodding and tinkering. It kind of ruined any suspense that might have been in the moment.
However, the movie is a worthy sequel to the first. Not necessarily better, just worthy of the name. Again this is mostly due to the fact that it progressed the story a little, rather than simply cashing in on the first's success.
If you liked the first movie, this one won't disappoint.

Watching a movie like Final Destination, which is obviously a teen horror movie, you definitely take your chances. You could get something genuinely creepy yet tongue-in-cheek, like Scream, or you could wind up seeing something like Darkness Falls or They. You just never know. When Final Destination came up on my Netflix list, I didn't know what to expect. Would it be something original and scary, or just some lame dud? Thankfully, it turned out to be the former.
Alex (Devon Sawa), along with about 40 others, are all set to take off on a plane destined for their senior trip in France. Right before it is set to take off, however, he has a premonition that shows him that soon after takeoff the plane will crash and everyone on board will be dead. He and others are forced off of the plane, and, sure enough, the plane crashes with everyone else on board. While everyone thinks that Alex caused the accident, he knows that they were supposed to die on board. Soon, everyone who was supposed to be on the plane start dying one by one.
Knowing that this was written and directed by the same team who did Willard, I knew that a lot of the movie wouldn't be just needless blood, but that there would be some sort of a creepy atmosphere to it all. And, by gum, there was. Although it wasn't as atmospheric as the aforementioned movie, and it relied a lot on sudden violence, it was still creepy. It seems like horror movies today rely on quick jumps to scare the audience. Final Destination sure had some, but also the music and the general movie itself was thrilling. When you could see that something was going to happen, you wanted to yell at the character to not do so-and-so. Then you sit back and enjoy the ride.
Something else that surprised me was how many special effects were needed.
