Critic Consensus: With little of the ingenuity of previous installments, The Final Destination is predictable, disposable horror fare.

Since not even 3-D can put your eyes out, our only hope is that this time, the title is a promise and not a tease.

With the exception of Williamson, the actors are as disposable as their characters, and there is no story to speak of.

I have watched all the final destinations except the first one! Damn. But I'd say the second one is better than this. First time I found a movie like this (sequel looks better than the beginning one).
