Movie Review: Final Destination

Rest in pieces

On what should have been a fun-filled day at the races, Nick O’Bannon (Bobby Campo) has a horrific premonition in which a bizarre sequence of events causes multiple race cars to crash, sending flaming debris into the stands, brutally killing his friends and causing the upper deck of the stands to collapse on him. When he comes out of this grisly nightmare, Nick panics, persuading his girlfriend, Lori (Shantel VanSanten), and their friends, Janet (Haley Webb) and Hunt (Nick Zano), to leave…escaping seconds before Nick’s frightening vision becomes a terrible reality

Thinking they’ve cheated death, the group has a new lease on life, but unfortunately for Nick and Lori, it is only the beginning. As his premonitions continue and the crash survivors begin to die one-by-one—in increasingly gruesome ways—Nick must figure out how to cheat death once and for all before he, too, reaches his final destination

The Good:
  • Effects were good. Things seemed very real, if it was 3D, I bet the audience would be blasted away.
  • Suspense was great. If you follow the movie well, you'll be shocked many times, into thinking that something wrong is going to happen.
  • Memorable as to it makes you think of it over and over again, since the common things shown can easily turn into killer items.
  • There was humor in it. Not too awkward, blended in quite well.

The Bad:
  • Storyline was bad. Even compared to the previous ones, this was not as strong as the others.
  • Movie was rather short and it seemed quick - somewhat they ran out of time, and had to kill everyone in the end, at once! The movie was also less than an hour and 30 minutes, to be specific, it was an hour plus a few minutes.
  • Spoilt ending, just when they exceeded and raised the audience 's expectation from the beginning to the middle, they dropped us right into a pothole at the end.
  • Final Destination's all about gruesome and gory scenes. That's pretty much what you'll only get minus off the humor.
  • Watch it in the day, and it's nothing at all.

My Rating:
5.0 of 10.0
for a horror/thriller/suspense movie


If you have the extra change and want a change in your appetite, this movie would be great for you. Also great to any Final Destination fans out there. Otherwise, I suggest you watch another movie for entertainment. A word of advice, if you're gonna watch this, watch the 3D - works like a charm! *winks*
