It commits hard to what it's depicting and how badly it wants to amuse & disgust the audience.

Becomes little more than a typical--if highly atmospheric--slasher film, complete with the cheesy dialogue and gimmicky conclusion.

September 29, 2009 innovative (and unexpectedly influential) exercise in horror.

...glib, well produced, and reasonably well acted, adding up to slick pop drivel.

Generates a respectable amount of suspense and takes a few unexpected turns while covering familiar territory.

About as subtle as an amplified death rattle--only not quite as fun to listen to.

"Hamhanded teen-philosophy stuff about fate and death's design and living forever and nobody controls my destiny."

Porém, o filme é bem-sucedido naquele que é o quesito mais importante para este tipo de produção: assusta.

There's some mind-numbing dialogue as teenagers spout philosophical soundbites about Life and Death, but it's worth the wait just to see a guy's head sliced in half by a sheet of steel.

Shadows on the Wall
December 10, 2001
It's an adrenaline-fuelled film full of big jolts, black humour and a nicely building sense of foreboding and dread.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/5

Devoid of logic, suspense, humor, credible characters or even a whiff of imagination, Final Destination deserves an untimely demise of its own.

The writing by Wong, Glen Morgan and Jeffrey Reddick meets the low standards of a mediocre TV movie.

If ever there was a vehicle destined to be shown late at night on the USA Network, "Final Destination" is it.
