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.

Any movie clever enough to make the late John Denver a prophet of doom is OK in my book.
January 1, 2000
A thoroughly repellent little shocker that exploits a still-fresh real-life tragedy for routine chills.
January 1, 2000
Horror fans everywhere should stay far away from this risibly bad entry.

Final destination? Video store bins.

Several cuts above the usual terror flick aimed at the teen dating crowd.

It starts by cheating death and ends by cheating us.

Final Destination is one creepy idea played out with numbing literal-mindedness.
January 1, 2000
A silly slasher movie, minus the slasher.

Good films see through those fears and anxieties like wise psychologists. The rest, like this, just see the dollar signs.
January 1, 2000
Even by the crude standards of teenage horror, Final Destination is dramatically flat.

Pure garbage.

January 1, 2000
An original shocker that keeps the tension going.
January 1, 2000
A first-class idea turned into a coach ticket ride.
January 1, 2000
The writing by Wong, Glen Morgan and Jeffrey Reddick meets the low standards of a mediocre TV movie.
January 1, 2000
It's hard to root against Death when the people involved are never brought to life in the first place.
