      Critics Consensus

      Despite a panel of X-Files' alums at the helm and a promising premise, flighty performances and poor execution keep Final Destination from ever taking off. Read critic reviews

        It is okay but I always get pissed off by every single film sequels.

        Suspenseful and frightening, Final Destination is an entertaining and well-crafted thriller. The story follows a group of high school students that are stalked by Death after a premonition helps them escape a plane crash. The casting is fairly solid, and includes Kerr Smith, Ali Larter, Seann William Scott, and Tony Todd. Additionally, the film does a pretty good job at setting up suspenseful and intense scenes that are unnerving. However, there's some weak writing (particularly the dialog) that cause the tone to be a bit uneven. Yet even with its flaws, Final Destination is a smart film that's full of shocks and scares.

        From the beginning to the end, the film remains tense and upbeat, but certain technical aspects, such as the way the film was shot, the blatant disregard for equipment reflected in the mirror, shadows of the equipment cast over each set, and an unrealistic beheading make me question what the $23 million pricetag actually went toward.

        'Final Destination' starts off strong, and then becomes almost laughable... but even then, it isn't too bad, I guess.
