The performances feel honest, and are perfectly attuned to Ivory's sauntering directorial pace. No one is in a hurry to have any epiphanies or enjoy the release of emotional catharsis. I appreciated it.

Ivory without Merchant films a bloodless, dreary tale

Sometimes it's nice to just relax and listen to the deep soothing tones of Anthony Hopkins, even if what he's saying is absolute dribble.

It's of moderately passing interest this film, but that's all. I hope Ivory and Prawer Jhabvala find their feet with the next one.

Looks like a Merchant Ivory movie. Bores like a lesser one, too.

This is a very disappointing film. It lacks life, really.

This is a rather drab affair with a protagonist who seems to have had a personality bypass.

It's not an entirely boring film. After a while, your pulse rate slows and you settle into the landscape. The two-hour running time, however, puts you in acute danger of growing moss.

A rich and engaging film from one of cinema?s grand masters

With all the cinematic trademarks of a James Ivory film, this adaptation of Peter Cameron?s novel seduces us slowly, as we get to know the characters whose lives are intertwined for better and for worse

"Destination" is another effort by director James Ivory in his long-running campaign to give arthouse audiences a comfortable place to take a nap.

Slow, dull and wielding absolutely no emotional impact despite a fine cast.

An aptly lush but below-the-numbers yarn

It's like Paul McCartney's songs after the split with John Lennon - there's some good stuff, but nothing classic.

This adaptation of the Peter Cameron novel is pretty dull, and the whole thing is so lacking in energy that it becomes a chore to watch.

The film is an endearing dinosaur, more suited for a museum than a multiplex...

Rather pallid...[a] stolid, talky adaptation of Peter Cameron's novel.

With a wimpy protagonist and a reticent director driving the story, The City of Your Final Destination doesn't go far enough.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

A movie that feels as if it should have been a masterpiece. As it is, it's flawed, uneven work but deserves careful viewing.
