From Amazon.co.uk

While hardly a spiritual upgrade of the slasher film, this high-concept teen body-count thriller drops hints of The Sixth Sense into the smart-aleck sensibility of Scream. Helmed by X-Files veteran James Wong, who co-wrote the screenplay with long-time creative partner Glen Morgan, Final Destination is an often entertaining thriller marked by an unsettling sense of unease and scenes of eerie imagery. It suffers, however, from a schizophrenic tone and a frankly ludicrous premise. A high-school Cassandra, Alex Browning (Devon Sawa of Idle Hands), wakes from a pre-flight nightmare and panics when he's convinced the plane is doomed. His ruckus bumps seven passengers from the Paris-bound plane, which immediately explodes into a fireball on takeoff, but fate hasn't finished with these lucky few and, one by one, death claims them. Wong brings such a funereal tone to these early scenes of survivor's guilt and inevitable doom that the already far-fetched film threatens to veer into unplanned absurdity. Thankfully, the tale loosens up with a playful morgue humour: one of the victims winds up the splattered punch-line to a grim joke and elaborate Rube Goldbergesque chains of cause and effect become inspired spectacles of destruction. Final Destination is a pretty silly thriller when it takes itself seriously, and the filmmakers play fast and loose with their own rules of fate, but once they stick their tongues firmly in cheek, the film takes off with a screwy interpretation of the domino effect of doom. --Sean Axmaker, Amazon.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Best series ever 5 Nov 2006
By marky77 VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
I wasn't going to write a review of the Final Destination movies because they are so good I worried that my review may not be able to do them justice but when I discovered that the overall rating for this box set was just 3 and a half stars (a rediculously low rating) I decided that I'd better try.

The Final Destination movies are by far my favourite movies (horror or not) EVER and I hope the series gets the endless number of sequels that it deserves.

Final Destination: Alex has a horrible premontion that the airplane he and his classmates sre boarding for French trip is going to crash. He freaks out on the airplane and he and five other people (four students and a teacher) are forcible removed from the airplane. The airplane does crash exactly as seen in Alex's premonition and so it seems that the lucky friends have cheated death. All goes well for the next 39 days until the night after the funeral of the victims of the aircrash and one of the survivors dies in a freak accident.

At first it seems as though the accident was a suicide, but then the other survivors also start to die in bizzare accidents and Alex and his friends must figure out deaths design - and cheat it again - before the grim reaper takes their lives.

Final Destinations 2 involves a girl having a premontion of a major car pile-up on a highway and pulls her car across the road preventing the aciident. The rest of the story is similar to number one but it is gorier and has a higher body-count while still managing to maintain those wonderfully imaginitive deaths, or "accidents".

5.0 out of 5 stars That Death Geezer is one scary guy!!!! 16 Feb 2007
Format:DVD
I love my FD box set! Theres a lot of teen horror movies out there but no matter how many times I watch these films, I still get an eerie sinister feeling about me every time! It is a very weird concept to think about all this death having a design lark! It definately gives you the creeps!

The accident scenes are very intriquately thought out and keep you guessing what is actually going to occur until the second it actually happens! It kind of amuses me that they really go for the gore factor in this film and everytime anybody dies, every bystander within a half mile radius gets a good spattering with blood!

My favourites are the first film and third film and a special mention should go to Tony Todd's appearances as the creepy coroner!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good value 10 Mar 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I only got this as my niece advised me to watch it and the last time it was on the telly I missed it. I watched the first and wished I hadn't bothered. It had a reasonable story line, but slightly juvenile. I won't bother to watch the other two and will give all three away to anyone who wants them.

4.0 out of 5 stars Teen horror with a psychological twist
All three films have the same basic plot. That is, the lead character has a premonition that a disaster is about to happen, causing tremendous loss of life. Read more
