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-alec 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 is 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

On the DVD: A superb commentary from writer Jeffrey Reddick, director James Wong and producer Glen Morgan goes into great detail about the film's background. From the team's involvement with The X-Files through to the fight to keep their title "Flight 180", they're pretty candid about the movie's secrets (cameos and character names) and bringing "Death" to life. There are also eight minutes of deleted scenes from an expunged sub-plot that led to their original ending. The explanation for its rejection comes in a 13-minute featurette ("The Perfect Souffle"), which demonstrates the result of Hollywood's reliance on test screenings. There's a trailer, cast and crew biographies and two games--"Your Psychic Eye" and "Death Clock"--which are scary enough by themselves. Rounding this exceptional extras package off is a 20-minute featurette on real-life premonitions. --Paul Tonks

5.0 out of 5 stars Scary and clever 17 Sep 2006
By Mr. M
Final Destination is one scary horror movie. The suspense is sensational and the deaths and the premonition were ingenious!

When Alex has a premonition of a plane he's on exploding, he gets off along with his friends. Then, the plane explodes before their very eyes! Was his premonition true? Now, because Alex had the premonition th fbi think that he caused it. Only to make matters worse, his friends are being killed one by one in the order they were supposed to of died on the plane. Death is stalking them because they cheated it.

The acting and directing is superb and this is a top-notch horror!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally a good film with a young cast 27 Jan 2006
By Blue hunter VINE VOICE
A group of high school students escape an airline crash in which their friends were killed.

Some time later events start to happen that make one of the students,alex,start to think that death it self has come back to finish of his work.
This region 2 dvd has some extras including a couple of games,a bit of fun.
A very good thriller/horror with a strong cast of young new actors and won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent DVD for an Excellent film 7 Sep 2000
Final Destination hast to be one of the scariest, stylish and darkly comic teen films in a long time. It follows a group of teenagers and a teacher who get of a plane after one of them (Sawa) has a premonition that it will explode. Well it does killing everybody on board. the students soon realize that they have cheated death and that it will come back after them, killing them in much more gruesome ways, than if they'd just stayed on the plane. The american DVD looks superb, with commentries, mini documentries, deleted scenes and a web link, and the UK disk will probably have most of the same material. But even though we miss out on some bits, the plane crash and decapitation in the actual film are worth the money alone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly intelligent horror thriller! 7 Feb 2003
By A Customer
Final Destination is a great combination of black humor, horror and basic thriller. The movie opens admirably at the airport, Devon Sawa has a vision of his plane crashing before a class trip. He and several others get off the plane only to discover that it does crash, but things take a turn for the worse when they all begin to die strange deaths. Sawa, Ali Larter, and Kerr Smith all play their roles very honestly and naturally. As for the supporting characters, Kristin Cloke, Chad Donella, Seann William Scott, and Amanda Detmer all turn in excellent performances. Tony Todd makes an amusing and well conceived cameo as a sinister mortician who may or may not be death himself. The death scenes are original and unexpected and the special effects are breathtaking. The plane crash is one of the most realistic you will see. This movie also makes you think about destiny and how you live your life. Final Destination is definetly on the top of my teen horror favourites and a nice change from scream type movies. It's suspenseful, it has a great story, the deaths are unique and the gore is a visual treat. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars You can run, but you can't hide from Death 26 Aug 2003
Final Destination manages to find its own little niche among psychological thrillers such as Scream and The Sixth Sense. With X-Files veterans James Wong and Glen Morgan at the helm, the movie is all but guaranteed to be entertaining and gripping. The plot works well as a whole, but some of the minutiae and details may make your brain hurt if you try to delve too deeply into them. Some impressive special effects and exquisite timing squeeze as much fun as possible out of the twists, turns, and thrills collected here, and the actors play their roles quite convincingly.
Alex Chance Browning (Devon Sawa) obviously does not love to fly, but he shakes off several bad omens to board the plane taking a large group of his classmates to Paris. Just before takeoff, he has a premonition of imminent disaster and ends up getting himself, five classmates, and a teacher, thrown off the plane. While his fellow stranded travelers tell him off and ridicule his claim to have somehow seen the plane explode after takeoff, the plane does indeed explode just as Alex predicted. These six other people seem more upset than grateful to Alex for having essentially saved their lives, and he finds himself a social outcast and even a person of interest to the FBI. Things only get worse from here. His circle of seven survivors begins to die off one by one, and Alex begins to see a pattern in these events. He comes to believe that he somehow messed up Death's plan, and now Death is coming to claim the lives of the seven who were supposed to die in the plane crash. He figured out that plan once already, and he is determined to figure out whatever new design Death throws at him. If he and any of his friends are to survive, Alex must outsmart the Grim Reaper yet again, a tough task indeed.

4.0 out of 5 stars I'll see you soon! 31 July 2012
By Spike Owen TOP 500 REVIEWER
Before taking off for Paris, Alex Browning has a vision that the plane is going to explode. Pannicking he gets off the plane and in the mÍlée a teacher and a group of his class mates are forced off the flight, the plane goes on to explode in mid air, killing everyone on board. But pretty soon after the disaster strange accidents start to befall those who got off the plane, it seems that death is out to get them.

With the number of hugely disappointing teens in peril movies that were made post the success of Wes Craven's hugely successful Scream, it's refreshing to find one that is, well, refreshing. Not purporting to be anything other than a wickedly entertaining piece of horror based nonsense, Final Destination is inventive, funny and above all else, shock laden. From the opening, and terrifying air crash sequence to the clever and gross way that our protagonists shake hands with the grim reaper, this film is gloriously proud of its horror intent. One peak at the surnames of the characters will tell you just how into their horror roots the makers are here, whilst not a homage movie as such, James Wong and his team clearly know what makes a modern horror picture work. If you find yourself complaining about the writing then you clearly are missing the point of Final Destination's existence, either that or you are in fact dead yourself! Two fun but vastly inferior sequels would follow, but really this is the one to watch, as good a 100 minutes of horror fun as you could wish to have, I dare you not to jump! 9/10
