Ivory without Merchant films a bloodless, dreary tale
October 22, 2010
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.
October 13, 2010
This is a very disappointing film. It lacks life, really.
October 13, 2010
This is a rather drab affair with a protagonist who seems to have had a personality bypass.
October 11, 2010
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.

"Destination" is another effort by director James Ivory in his long-running campaign to give arthouse audiences a comfortable place to take a nap.
August 13, 2010
Slow, dull and wielding absolutely no emotional impact despite a fine cast.
August 2, 2010
An aptly lush but below-the-numbers yarn

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.
June 25, 2010
With a wimpy protagonist and a reticent director driving the story, The City of Your Final Destination doesn't go far enough.
June 15, 2010
Among other problems, the material has maddening character and situation gaps that require one to suspend disbelief.
June 11, 2010
When you get to the end of The City of Your Final Destination, you may discover that there is no there there.
June 4, 2010
A turgid adaptation.
June 3, 2010
An artificial, almost theatrical quality to the dialogue and staging conflicts with the material's character-driven nature.
