Scott is more concerned with letting his actors indulge in dramatic onanism than he is with creating suspense.

Leary ... digs deeper than he has before, and he makes himself over into an arresting lost soul.

Comes off as a shoddily assembled, somewhat padded story that resembles a more buttoned-down Twelve Monkeys in its better moments and a high school video project in its worse ones.

Though its story is fuzzy, the acting and direction in Final give it an air of quiet, dignified ambition.

Scott handles this enigmatic science fiction mystery with such gloomy restraint that it barely moves.

Its fundamental stumbling block [is] ... a story that splits at the seams with plot holes and bloat.

Campbell Scott's brutally claustrophobic direction is alleviated by Leary and Davis's unhysterical performances.
