It's hard to root against Death when the people involved are never brought to life in the first place.

For a horror flick about precognition, Final Destination is sadly lacking in the ability to foresee what will thrill and chill audiences.

A first-rate idea, the film unfortunately croaks long before the credits roll.

The intentions of this film are to be a clever, dark, horror picture, but it manages only to elevate itself to the level of sheer idiocy.

After its promising liftoff, Final Destination loses altitude fairly quickly and ultimately doesn't get very far.

Avoid this obvious exercise in re-inventing the Scream formula.

Final Destination is one creepy idea played out with numbing literal-mindedness.

The writing by Wong, Glen Morgan and Jeffrey Reddick meets the low standards of a mediocre TV movie.

An original shocker that keeps the tension going.

If ever there was a vehicle destined to be shown late at night on the USA Network, "Final Destination" is it.

A silly slasher movie, minus the slasher.

Pedestrian direction, clichd writing and bland acting all contribute to make Final Destination a flight that probably should have been cancelled.

Playful and energized enough to keep an audience guessing.

A sequel to Final Destination: Now there's a thought to curl up with at night.

An interesting combination of well-mounted horror flick and sheer campy experience.

This movie combines an original and realistic premise, a quick pace, many gruesome and creative death scenes and a pretty cool ending.

Give Death some credit, though. Instead of simply inflicting these kids with fatal aneurysms or sudden strokes, Death goes all out to give each of its victims a splashy going-away party.
