December 7, 2001
Comes off as a shoddily assembled, somewhat padded story that resembles a more buttoned-down Twelve Monkeys in its better moments and a high school video project in its worse ones.

In the end, Final simply doesn't have much going for it.
December 5, 2001
A tepid affair.

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

The inventive, conspiracy-laden ending...is all too little too late.

January 18, 2002
...an ever-present potential for both greater depth and goosepimply plot developments goes largely unrealized.

One of the slowest-moving films in a long, long, long while.

December 13, 2001
In the end, Final is one big hunh? barely worth the effort.

Its fundamental stumbling block [is] ... a story that splits at the seams with plot holes and bloat.
December 6, 2001
Scott handles this enigmatic science fiction mystery with such gloomy restraint that it barely moves.

December 7, 2001
The results are more lifeless than chilling.
December 7, 2001
Scott is more concerned with letting his actors indulge in dramatic onanism than he is with creating suspense.

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 14, 2001
The budget here was clearly miniscule, but others with less experience have certainly done more with less.
January 9, 2002
Basically it's cable-ready, and it shouldn't be long in getting there.
