Product Description

Product Description

Having boarded an aeroplane ready to embark on a school trip to France, Alex (Devon Sawa) suddenly has a premonition that it will explode. He tries to convince his friends to disembark, causing so much trouble that he and six others are eventually ejected before take-off. Shortly afterwards, standing in the departure lounge, they see the plane destroyed in a mid-air explosion. Later, after three of the ejectees have died in strange circumstances, Alex becomes convinced that death feels cheated, and is now trying to collect back the debt. Can Alex convince his other friends of this before they too meet their untimely ends?

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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Awesome movie, don't let the later ones put you off this one! It's by far the best.

Very creepy, violent and a little bit gory. But don't let the old special effects put you off. Fantastic acting all round too.

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!!!

This was the weakest film I ever went to see at the cinema.This starts the story of people trying to cheat death. Starts off with a guy panicking because he is sure the plane he and his friends are on is going to explode,that's quite a good partThe plane does blw up and the survivors,who have cheated death once,try to survive subsequent threats.The end made me laugh when one of the irritating characters said that he would live forever-this certainly was not Fame.Some girls in the cinema loved this film but I thought it was poor and I only bought it for a Friend Who liked it when she caught a bit of it on TV.It arrived well packed and in very quick time .I recommend the service but not the film.

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.

I think we have all seen this by now and know what its about so no need to write to much about the film, lets say the Blu-Ray quality could have been a lot better i didn't see much or any diffrent in picture or sound quality than the dvd version, i would recommend saving money and sticking to the dvd versions but if you love these films and have to upgrade then do so and see for yourself i sure hope there are better improvements on the sequels which i will watch shortly, but as for the movie 9/10 just genius and fun and gory if you havent seen it then you must watch it, it really is great.

Brought this on Blu Ray to replace my DVD. Was it worth it? Yes and no.
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.

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 actresses.you won't be disappointed.
