The Final Destination (2009)



Critic Consensus: With little of the ingenuity of previous installments, The Final Destination is predictable, disposable horror fare.

Critic Reviews for The Final Destination

All Critics (95) | Top Critics (14)

An absolute slap in the face to the fans who made the franchise a hit in the first place.

Full Review… | August 28, 2015

The Final Destination is a catastrophe in and of itself.

Georgia Straight

Imagine a film that features an endless cavalcade of people being eviscerated in the bloodiest and bone-snappiest of ways, yet which somehow manages to inspire the audience to envy the victims.

Old School Reviews

There's absolutely no reason for The Final Destination to exist other than the only one Hollywood studios really care about: a cynical cash grab. [Blu-ray]

Groucho Reviews

Like too many horror franchises, a premise that was once scary has evolved into something campy and self-aware.

Audience Reviews for The Final Destination


On a day at a car race, Nick has a premonition that there is a car crash and the stadium stands collapse. He saves his girlfriend and some other people in the audience. But death pursues them.

I have watched all the final destinations except the first one! Damn.
But I'd say the second one is better than this. First time I found a movie like this (sequel looks better than the beginning one).
