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.

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.

Emerges as engrossing and thought-provoking.

A movie that tries your patience but, finally, rewards it handsomely.

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.

Leary ... digs deeper than he has before, and he makes himself over into an arresting lost soul.

Mr. Leary and Ms. Davis are first-rate.

[Scott] aptly places these all-too-human characters in a complex situation that is both compelling and entertaining.

November 5, 2001
Campbell Scott's brutally claustrophobic direction is alleviated by Leary and Davis's unhysterical performances.

...this semi-interesting premise has been stretched incredibly thin over the course of close to two hours...

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.
