Movie Info

A man struggles to prove he isn't insane -- which is no mean feat when you're certain you're been transported 400 years into the future. Anne (Hope Davis) is a psychiatrist working at a hospital for the criminally insane whose latest charge is Bill Tyler (Denis Leary), a man who was recently admitted when he was found inside a wrecked truck found in a quarry. Bill isn't sure just where he is or what's happened to him, but he's certain he's traveled four centuries into the future, and if he can't

One of the slowest-moving films in a long, long, long while.

A surprisingly effective, off-beat little movie.

Emerges as engrossing and thought-provoking.

Shot digitally, Final is less than terrific technically; focus and sound levels waver. Luckily, these flaws are not inconsistent with the film's raw, unvarnished tone.

Leary -- and the film itself -- keeps the audience off guard.

The pace suddenly picks up and the pieces of the puzzle start falling into place for Bill and for the audience.

Worth it for Leary fans who want to see him stretch a bit.

While vaguely reminiscent of VANILLA SKY, it lacks the pretty big-name stars, the sci-fi trappings, and the cop-out ending - and is all the better for it.

...this semi-interesting premise has been stretched incredibly thin over the course of close to two hours...

Final's redundant, stiff, colorless meetings between Bill and Ann are staged at such a leisurely pace that we're waiting for someone to shut them up and provide some real tension.

Best known as a gritty wiseass, Denis Leary creates a fine dramatic performance as Bill, as does his co-star Hope Davis whose screen presence is glacial and entirely believable.

A lifeless vacuum.

In the end, Final simply doesn't have much going for it.

...an ever-present potential for both greater depth and goosepimply plot developments goes largely unrealized.

A movie that tries your patience but, finally, rewards it handsomely.

Basically it's cable-ready, and it shouldn't be long in getting there.

The inventive, conspiracy-laden ending...is all too little too late.

While the idea behind "Final" is a good one, eighty minutes of tedium is too much to ask for its revelation.

The budget here was clearly miniscule, but others with less experience have certainly done more with less.

In the end, Final is one big hunh? barely worth the effort.

Though Scott co-directed two other films (Big Night with Stanley Tucci and Hamlet with Eric Simonson), his solo effort feels like the debut of an amateur.

Script docs should've worked a little harder on this one.
