[3.00/10] The Final Destination (2009)

The Final Destination (2009)

Short review: Surprisingly when I saw the first "Final Destination" film I was taken back, this was a good horror movie. As well as the second "Final Destination", if it wasn't even better than the first, this is a strong series, even the third one has it's moments that made it entertaining enough. The problem with "The Final Destination" is now that it's becoming more about the deaths, it's turning into a torture porn movie where it's just there to gross people out vs. telling a story with it. The acting is just horrible and the deaths are just getting more and more unrealistic, ridiculous and unoriginal, as well as the script, which I think they were just trying to insult the audience by using the exact same story as before instead of re-vamping it. Unlike the other three FD movies, the main premonition of an accident and its subsequent fulfillment are rushed through like the opening of a television show. There is no suspense or ominous buildup, just explosions, death, and déjà vu to precede the opening credits and to let the audience know how little innovation they'll be witnessing in the next hour. Each character even blatantly rips-off their persona from somebody in the first three films, and not very well at that. "The Final Destination" is just a sub-par rehash of its predecessors, which is a shame considering the potential of the series. It's laughably cheesy and plain awful!

  • My Rating: 3.00/10
