Worth it for Leary fans who want to see him stretch a bit.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
March 18, 2003
While vaguely reminiscent of VANILLA SKY, it lacks the pretty big-name stars, the sci-fi trappings, and the cop-out ending - and is all the better for it.

...this semi-interesting premise has been stretched incredibly thin over the course of close to two hours...
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
December 8, 2002
Final's redundant, stiff, colorless meetings between Bill and Ann are staged at such a leisurely pace that we're waiting for someone to shut them up and provide some real tension.

Best known as a gritty wiseass, Denis Leary creates a fine dramatic performance as Bill, as does his co-star Hope Davis whose screen presence is glacial and entirely believable.

January 18, 2002
A lifeless vacuum.
January 18, 2002
One of the slowest-moving films in a long, long, long while.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
January 18, 2002
A surprisingly effective, off-beat little movie.
January 18, 2002
In the end, Final simply doesn't have much going for it.
January 18, 2002
...an ever-present potential for both greater depth and goosepimply plot developments goes largely unrealized.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
January 17, 2002
Emerges as engrossing and thought-provoking.
January 17, 2002
A movie that tries your patience but, finally, rewards it handsomely.
January 9, 2002
Basically it's cable-ready, and it shouldn't be long in getting there.
Full Review | Original Score: C
January 7, 2002
The inventive, conspiracy-laden ending...is all too little too late.

January 5, 2002
While the idea behind "Final" is a good one, eighty minutes of tedium is too much to ask for its revelation.

December 14, 2001
The budget here was clearly miniscule, but others with less experience have certainly done more with less.
December 14, 2001
Shot digitally, Final is less than terrific technically; focus and sound levels waver. Luckily, these flaws are not inconsistent with the film's raw, unvarnished tone.

December 13, 2001
In the end, Final is one big hunh? barely worth the effort.
December 9, 2001
Though Scott co-directed two other films (Big Night with Stanley Tucci and Hamlet with Eric Simonson), his solo effort feels like the debut of an amateur.
December 8, 2001
Script docs should've worked a little harder on this one.
