Editorial Reviews

The movie series that taps into your deepest fears returns with a new and imaginative chapter that delivers the expected - in so many keep-you-guessing, unexpected ways! A strange premonition causes friends to abandon their day at the speedway, just before a crushing pileup hurtles cars into the bleachers with fiery consequences. They have cheated Death. But Death is only getting started. From the director of Snakes on a Plane comes the eerie, innovative tale of the friends' fierce fight to keep themselves and others alive.

1.0 out of 5 stars Is NOT Active Shutter 3D - Comes with Red/Green Glasses November 14, 2011
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I have a 3D TV and bought this Blu-Ray disc based on Amazon's product description that stated "To watch this movie in Blu-ray 3D, you will need a 3D-capable television that comes with active-shutter glasses and a 3D-capable Blu-ray player". When it arrived I was a bit concerned to see that it came with two pairs of red and green filtered glasses and there was no mention of 3D TVs on the box. There were two discs though, so I hoped one of them contained a proper 3D movie for 3D TVs - No such luck so I returned it, which to Amazon's credit, was a very simple experience actually. I just printed out a UPS return label from Amazon's website and dropped it off at my nearest UPS Store and hopefully they're paying for it. Amazon needs to change their product description otherwise they're going to get a lot of returns.

3.0 out of 5 stars Death Gets All Up In Your Face September 15, 2009
At heart, all horror movies operate on the human response to mortality. Your average horror fan gets a thrill from the films because they are a sort of spice for life, they are the seasoning that makes the mundane parts of life all the more richer. Watch a bunch of people get sliced and diced by a monster or madman, and that adrenaline rush makes you feel as if, on some level, you yourself have cheated death. For awhile or more, it's nice to be alive.

The FINAL DESTINATION films utilize the same premise, but instead of creating a defeatable or relatable villain, it makes the very act of dying the villain. Watching the movies, it's very much like they decided that the force of Death, after a millenia of ending lives, has grown bored and has decided to put some spice into his job. In all of the movies, Death awards a young soul with a premonition of a huge catastrophe, and when that soul saves him/herself (along with a handful of others), Death gleefully sets up cat-and-mouse games with the survivors and watches as they scream and skitter. The question is never Will They Die? It is How Long Can They Hold Out?

Because everyone dies, sooner or later, and it's rarely at the hands of a zombie or a Leatherface. Car accidents are far more common. Fires. Mechanical failures. The FD films make Death a snarky, sadistic force without ever showing his face. Instead, Death operates basically through three cards -- wind, gravity, and passive human interference -- and with these three things, he orchestrates the deaths of dozens and dozens of characters. These films are filled with pointless scenes of people screaming that they're in control of their lives, scoffing at the idea that Death lurks everywhere. Then they die.

5.0 out of 5 stars out with a bang August 9, 2010
Format:DVD
You know, I tend to find the Final Destination series to be among the SCARIEST of all the horror films out there. This is because the actual horror comes in the way of REAL possibilities.

Alright, so they are real possibilities *greatly* exaggerated for the sake of creating a quality horror film, but when you stop and really think about it, the Final Destination series could really mess with your head, and perhaps even permanently screw up your mental state.

That is, if you choose to take it seriously and believe in this kind of stuff. You know, believing the death of every single person on the face of the planet is meant to happen for a reason, and we're all just ticking clocks waiting to die. For someone like me, it's hard *not* to take a film like this somewhat seriously. Death is just unbelievably fascinating to me, and this interpretation of it makes it even more exciting.

After all, the way people die in this film involve cars, fires, heavy objects falling on top of people and crushing them, and several other realistic possibilities. It's hard for me NOT to think some of this stuff is actually entirely likely to happen.

Of course, the odds of a domino effect coming together and forming the perfect strategy to eliminate a human being is EXTREMELY unlikely to actually happen, but well... sometimes in real life, only a couple things have to come together in order to take out a person. With *this* in mind, now you know why I find this series a bit freakier than other horror films. It's exaggerated, but not entirely out of the realm of possibility.

The movie writers who come up with the storylines for these kind of films must be exceptionally smart and clever.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious! October 20, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video
For the laughs alone, this one's worth renting--for a dollar. Indistinguishable from its predecessors except for its premise, which begins at a race track. There, a group of obnoxiously moronic, attractive, foul-mouthed college kids are the focus of a catastrophe about to happen. One of the boys has a premonition of a disaster, which begins as a multi-car mashup culminating with vehicles and various auto parts and even the stadium itself becoming shrapnel missiles attacking spectators.

In a blink, everything's back to normal the way it was just prior to the accident. It was a vision but suddenly everything in the vision prior to the disaster is identical. From here, the film becomes a menagerie of how creative can we see someone die. And the basic question is this: do we control our fate, or does fate control us? Also, what happens if we thwart fate by intervening and saving a life? The answer in these films seems to be: fate gets really pissed! I've found these films to be a good mindless excursion, actually funnier than films that are made to be so. Maybe these films should be labeled Horror/comedies. Definitely fun for the whole family!
