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 TonksSee all Product description

The most upsetting death was the first one just cos it was horrifying and the fact the elements in it reacted the way they did....damn.
Death has it's own sadistic game and it doesn't mind playing dirty for keeps. I think that's what makes this good, you never truly see death but it has it's own character and dark humour. I also have a suspicion of a certain character being at least favoured by the entity.
Some aspects of this are sloppy, you never get a true answer to 'why is this happening' so it's up to speculation. Perhaps death just wanted to spice things up, perhaps god wanted to give them a chance. Who knows?
It wasn't a turkey, but when you aim at a certain age group then "dumb down", you get pretty much what you expect.
I would avoid all of them to be honest.
It seems to be in some film genres the director loves to make it glaringly obvious as to what is coming up : 'You take care of him.'
'Your birthday is the same as your departure time.' (09:25 = September 25th).
Alex sees has a premonition of the aeroplane crashing and everyone dying in spectacular fashion. Therefore, he protests as the plane is about to take off and him, his two teachers, (one of which, Larry, the French teacher goes back on with the rest of the group) and some of his friends get chucked off the flight. They see the plane take off and the blow up in the sky! (In real life a plane wouldn't be able to leave quite so quickly though!)
'I control my life, not you.. - I'm never gonna die!' - Well you don't need me to add anything to that..
At this point events come into place to claim the lives of the remaining students who should have been killed in the aeroplane crash.
Todd is accidentally asphyxiated in the bathroom.
'In death there are no accidents, no incidents, no mishaps and no escapes. You have to realise we are all a mouse that a cat has by the tail.'
'I will not let the plane crash be the most important thing in my life.'
Carter's girlfriend, Terry, gets run over by a bus!
Following images on the news regarding the crash Alex works out the order that everyone will die in, (as they have done in the aircraft). (This is the central theme to the film as you will see).
'Can I tell you something and don't take this the wrong way. - Sometimes you give me the creeps!'
'You're outta here, pretty soon you'll be gone!' - Some more glaringly obvious proleptic irony.
Its then Miss Lewton's turn to die in under a catalogue of deadly errors.
Billy is decapitated at a railway track.
In the end sequence between Alex and Claire it is clear that it is some kind of love sequence.
And fast forward to six months later..
'You know I can't believe that we got on a plane again..'
I love a good ending where the chaos continues!
The picture is sharper, but no massive difference to the DVD, maybe in certain parts it stood out more than in other parts.
I was pleased though that there is a cast commentary on the blu ray that wasn't on the DVD.
This has always been one of my favourite horror movies from the early 2000s. So I had to buy it on Blu Ray. For what it cost I'm happy.
Very creepy, violent and a little bit gory. But don't let the old special effects put you off. Fantastic acting all round too.
My favorite films ever are the final destination series.
Ali Larter's performance as Clear Rivers was fantastic.
Group of American teens 'cheat death' after one of them has a premonition of the plane they are on crashing and tells everyone to get off. Because they cheated death, they all start dying in peculiar, unrealistic but really entertaining ways:)
Good for the day with entertaining effects.
Gory, but with humour.
