Final Destination (2000) Review:

Final Destination, by horror director James Wong (Final Destination 3, The One), was originally written as an X-Files episode but was instead made into a full-length feature film. The story is revolved around a bunch of high school teens and a teacher, who is murdered by a strange killer. He cannot be dedicated in any of the five senses and so is invincible, making the impending doom for our protagonists much worse. They, however, try to fight against it, so delaying their death. But no matter how hard they try, they are bound to die.

The film was pretty enjoyable; the idea of cheating death and it coming back for revenge sounds pretty graphic, others may consider death to be a businessman with a score to settle. The film delivers well in my eyes, even if some deaths can appear to be silly and farfetched as for example a girl is run over by a speeding bus, or Ms. Lewtons cup breaks and she as it next to the computer. The plot was basic but interesting to follow through some of the characters I had no feelings for. Most of the characters didn’t develop properly and I would have liked something more meaningful at the end. I found pretty annoying how some of the characters did not appreciate their lives and kept complaining to one another about it.

The only element that will really grab a horror fan’s attention is the deaths and the antagonist ‘Death’ who was actually quite scary because he wasn’t just a ghost but something more powerful, using everyday things to kill his victims. The idea that everything is supposedly an ‘accident’ leads you to believe that it could happen to you, everyday objects and occurrences becoming a lethal threat. This a must-watch for the new generation of horror fans. Watch this if you liked “One Missed Call” and other teen horrors and slashers from the same period.
