Final Destination (2000)
Critic Consensus: Despite a panel of X-Files' alums at the helm and a promising premise, flighty performances and poor execution keep Final Destination from ever taking off.

News & Interviews for Final Destination
Critic Reviews for Final Destination
Generates a respectable amount of suspense and takes a few unexpected turns while covering familiar territory.
The writing by Wong, Glen Morgan and Jeffrey Reddick meets the low standards of a mediocre TV movie.
A silly slasher movie, minus the slasher.
Stupid, silly and gory.
The main problem is that Morgan and Wong don't seem to have a clear idea of what they want -- campy, schlocky slasher flick or moody, intelligent thriller -- and as a result they create neither.
Audience Reviews for Final Destination
Glen Morgan and James Wong, two of the best X-Files writers, did a fantastic job in this excellent, clever and original teen horror movie that has an intriguing premise and knows how to build genuine tension, especially in the nerve-wracking sequence that opens it.
If Death had a personality ... what kind of personality would that be? The first of the series makes a strong start with the proposition that the Reaper might be a poetic yet meticulous workman, an artist, bound to see a job through no matter what. A guilty pleasure of mine.
Great idea for a film, but the cast executed their roles poorly. I remember thinking this movie was thrilling and eerie when I was 11 at the time of release, but being older now and watching.....it's just kinda cheesy.
