An absolute slap in the face to the fans who made the franchise a hit in the first place.

The Final Destination is a catastrophe in and of itself.

Imagine a film that features an endless cavalcade of people being eviscerated in the bloodiest and bone-snappiest of ways, yet which somehow manages to inspire the audience to envy the victims.

There's absolutely no reason for The Final Destination to exist other than the only one Hollywood studios really care about: a cynical cash grab. [Blu-ray]

Like too many horror franchises, a premise that was once scary has evolved into something campy and self-aware.

...if you've seen one such movie, you've seen them all, and one is too much.

If The Final Destination is what horror fans want these days, be very, very afraid.

Selling bland fatalism to kids, it's the work of crooks.

The film showers you with gore while dumping a motor engine in your lap and poking you in the eye with a burnt stick.

The characters are crash-test dummies, with dialogue to match. Yet Eric Bress' script is mockingly self-aware, framing the film as the ultimate example of violence as entertainment.

The final (really?) film in this lifeless franchise about the inevitability of death, which typically comes in the form of some grisly three-dimensional accident.

The new film has been expertly shot in 3-D, and the extra dimension does punch-up the impact of the franchise's famously intricate set- piece snuffings.

Where some of the previous installments have been quite clever, the focus here is entirely on angling the camera so that something else can rush at us.

A tired imitation of the first film in the series, the 3-D offers little to improve this vacuous and unnecessary sequel.

As a thriller, it's damn effective. It had me sitting anxiously on the edge of my seat, knuckles whitened, not because of a gory death, but because of the suspenseful build up to one.
| Original Score: 3.5/5

What does it say about us when we go to cinemas to see people die in gruesome, yet inventive ways?

...a fitting follow-up to its trio of like-minded forebears.

You might just as well stay home and watch one of the other three, where at least there will be some devilish wit and ironic humor in evidence.
