Alex is boarding his plane to France on a school trip, when he suddenly gets a premonition that the plane will explode. When Alex and a group of students are thrown off the plane, to their horror, the plane does in fact explode. Alex must now work out Deaths plan, as each of the surviving students falls victim. Whilst preventing the worst from happening, Alex must also dodge the FBI, which believes Alex caused the explosion.

We have taken some photos of "Final Destination". They represent actual movie quality.
The idea of cheating death, and then having death itself 'chase' youuntil the only conclusion ensues is a frightening one, and a reallygreat premise for a horror movie. Death is the ultimate unknown and theidea of it being a malicious presence should give way to a classichorror movie. However, anything that should have been good about thismovie isn't, and unfortunately it ends up being another teen slasher,just with an invisible killer instead of some goon in a mask. After arelatively decent start, the movie descends into a routine, clichÃ©ridden, teen horror movie with not an interesting character nor afrightening scenario in sight. The story follows a group of teenagersand their teacher (also a teenager) that survive a plane crash afterone of them has a premonition and gets himself thrown off the plane.What then follows is a series of over the top death scenes intertwinedwith a boring 'investigation'.It's a shame that this film is rubbish as the death sequences aren'tthat bad. We've got one kid being strangled in the bath, another isdecapitated by a piece of stray metal while another is mauled by glassfrom a computer monitor, and later a set of kitchen knives. However,it's all spoilt by the boring characters and silly dialogue (imagine'death' is after you; would you really 'challenge' it with harshlanguage?). I'm all against remakes, but this is a premise I'd love tosee tackled by a talented group of people. With a good cast,interesting writing and a talented director; this idea could be takenall the way to the realms of the horror classic. Unfortunately, thechances of anyone making a film like that these days is slim becauseall of these sorts of things have to be done with 'teens' (a.k.a.actors in their early twenties, playing teens) for teens to ensure thatthe film will sell. Sigh.
WOW. Watch it. Watch it. Watch it again. I normally don't go for thesescareteen flicks, but this one quite impressed me. Great effects, script,concept, idea, ending, etc... This film grabs you by the ba*** and doesn'tlet go. Watch out for a great cameo by Tony "Farewell to the Flesh" Todd,doing a perfect cross between Vincent Price and Bill Cosby.
Acting-------------4 out of 10, Nobody in the whole trilogy could act, but who cares as long as they die real cool right?Directing----------7 out of 10, Same director as the first one, good ideaLocation/Scenery---8 out of 10, Cool death locationsHorror Rating------7 out of 10Quality------------7 out of 10, DVD features are pretty coolViolence-----------HighBlood/Gore---------High, Not as graphic as the first two, but a few squeamish momentsNudity-------------Medium, One extended scene with topless girls tanningSex----------------NoneOverall------------Teenagers 14 and up should be fineTotal Score--------33 out of 50, B-I gotta say, this whole trilogy has been such a kick to watch, I know it's not top-of-the-line film making, but who really cares, every death scene was original, clever, and nothing anyone expected. Some were graphic, some were gross, some silly and some intense. The death scenes in the 3rd installment were more of a quick surprise, they would suddenly come out of nowhere, and I won't lie to ya, a couple of 'em made me jump, then say "damn that was cool" So, ya got bland acting, sensational death effects, and a incredible rollercoaster scene. Put reality and common sense away for 95 minutes and have some cheesy fun!!
This review is from: Final Destination 3 (Widescreen Two-Disc Special Edition) (DVD) I love Mary Winstead. Other than her, this is just a typical horror flick. Not as good as the original Final Dest but not as dumb as the second.
All throughout high school I was a devoted horror movie fan. Over the years I've lost a little of my enthusiasm for the genre as it has steadily progressed away from the edge-of-your-seat thriller that I loved so dearly, and on towards mindless gore and cheap "pop-out" scare tactics. Where's the excitement?Final Destination 3 is certainly a thrill ride worth taking. I almost didn't watch it, but I was intrigued by a very unique feature on the soon-to-be released DVD version. It is a 2-disc special edition that has all the usual features such as commentary and behind-the-scenes featurettes...BUT the "intriguing" DVD aspect I am speaking of is the "Choose Your Own Adventure" format available on the Special Edition DVD version released Tuesday July 25. MOVIE PREMISE: As a group of friends are about to get on a rollercoaster, one of them, Wendy, suddenly has a vision of the rollercoaster malfunctioning, and everyone onboard dying. After Wendy begins to panic and tries desperately to warn all those on board, she gets off the coaster, along with a few others. After the coaster crashes just as she predicted, strange things begin to happen to all those who deboarded the doomed coaster. Death will not be avoided for long. After realizing the pictures she had taken with her digital camera that night held clues to the terrifyingly gruesome ways in which each person was going to die...Wendy and her friend/fellow doomed survivor Ryan, try desperately to warn all those who escaped the accident. They realize that each person is being killed in the order that they sat on the rollercoaster...in the order they were meant to die.On the DVD, once you click on "Play Movie", you will be given the option of watching the theatrical release version of the film, OR....watching the movie in Choose-your-own-adventure style (which they call "Choose Their Fate"). If you choose the latter (which certainly makes things more interesting), then the movie will pause at key points in the film and give you two choices that will directly effect the way the film progresses. For Example:...A flip of a coin will decide where your boyfriend will sit on the coaster. Do you A.) Call Heads, or B.) Call Tails?...A huge sign is about to fall on top of a man and crush him to death...does he A.) dive to the left, or B.) dive to the right?...Your friend specifically asks you *not* to look at his picture and possibly foresee the way in which he'll soon die. Do you A.) take another look anyway, or B.) do as he asks and don't look. Each choice you make has a very specific effect. Some choices will either save a character...or condemn them to a gruesome death. Some choices can't save a character...but they alter the way in which that character dies. Some choices will even end the film early! It's a new and very fun feature that I've never seen done before, and regardless of the fact that some people feel the "Final Destination" movies have become a little formulaic...it's still worth checking out and having a go at deciding each character's fate. HELPFUL HINT/SPOILER: When watching the film "Choose Their Fate" style...I recommend that when it comes time to make your first choice (which will be a coin toss...Heads or Tails), that you choose Heads. If you choose Tails, the movie will end almost immediately afterwards and you will not have a chance to see the rest of it play out. Choosing Heads will take you forward with the film...the rest is up to you!Also...when making your choices...choose wisely and FAST. If you wait longer than a few seconds to make your choice, then Fate will choose for you. Good Luck!
This review is from: Final Destination 3 (Full Screen 2-Disc Special Edition) (DVD) (Why Amazon Moved my Review to a Different Product, I do not know )I really do not understand why people take the time to pan films they will almost certainly hate.The kind of people that do that are just like the critics whose verdict have an inverse relationship with the success of the film.The story is pretty straightforward, so the big event occurs at the start of the film, and the main structural difference is that a big sequence happens at the end, with a whole bunch of minor "gags" inbetween the start and finish. As a whole if you pay more than 14 dollars for a new copy, you are overpaying, but its a "Kill the Teenager" film, so what do you expect ??DVD: Worth Buying in two disc. The features are revealing about how the film is done, and shows a lot of the detail behind the scenes. The animated item is quite intriguing, and basically worth a watch. Even if you have to buy the film for the sake of being complete with the set, its worth it. The commentary is very enlightening, and if you watch the making of features first, and then listen to the commentary last, you will probably get more entertainment out of the film that way. And the interactive feature is quite fun. The briefest space of time you will have for the film is approximately 22 minutes. You need to be in the right mood to get into the choose the fate version; seems like some of the reviewers sucked on 8 lemons before doing their reviews.If you liked one and two, this will be fun, and the DVD set is a cool buy.
The movie Final Destination is in short, about a Teen who sees thefateof himself and others on a plane trip to Paris, France...ok you got that imsure already. (So let's move on) For being a Teen horror flick I willgiveit (AS THE COOL KIDS SAY) PROPS! For being at least a little more originalthen other flicks such as I KNOW WHAT YOU DID.....blah blah blah part 9.Mycomplaint sort of comes from the guy from the mortuary......WHY DOES HEKN0W EVERYTHING ABOUT WHATS GOING ON..it just reminded me of that part ofWAYNES WORLD when he says something like ....THIS GUY KNOWS WAYY TO MUCHINFORMATION or something like that...basically meaning this guy knows toomuch..ITS THERE TO MAKE THE PLOT GO...That seemed pretty rushed to me, likethey just wrote that in a day. It also had a lot of cliches in itlike..THEBLOND DINGGY ONE. THE TOUGH GUY..THE VIRGIN (they even had her hold a whiterose to show that) and of course the hero....positive points let mesee...... I will say the Main character played by DEVON SAWA and ALI LARTERwhich shows a hint of being a descent actress in her. If she keeps it upshe can go far......TAKE A RISK ALI...DO SOME REAL ACTING...you can doit..To devon sawa The LEONARDO DICAPRIO of the new millennium (JK) your anallright actor too. Background music was good and a few symbolic thingslikeTHE SONG BY JOHN DENVER(denver died in an airplane crash)..anyways....ifyouwant, see it on CABLE or something..not exactly great,but if you wanna seesomething a little better then your average teen horror flick this is abetter choice then some of the others...AGAIN IM NOT SAYING I WILL EVER BUYTHIS ON DVD.....I DID NOT LIKE THIS THAT MUCH...just saying its better thanscream 3. well thats itTILL NEXT REVIEW...BYE FOR NOW
FINAL DESTINATION (2000)starring: Devon Sawa, Ali Larter, Kerr Smith, and Kristen Clokeplot: Alex Browning (Devon Sawa) is one of many students boardingFlight 180 to Paris for their senior trip. He can not seem to shake hisfear of flying, and for good reason. Alex has a premonition of theplane exploding and ends up getting himself, five other students, and ateacher kicked off. To their horror, the plane explodes on take off.But Alex does not feel as if it is all over. Soon after, the survivorsbegin dying in freak accidents in the order they were meant to die onthe plane.my thoughts: During a time when every horror film involved a maskedkiller targeting 25 year old teenagers while a virgin tries to discoverhis/her identity, FINAL DESTINATION was desperately needed by us horrorfans.This is a scary and original teen slasher. It has a great scary premisethat really makes you think, great performances from all, a creepymusic score, some pretty gory death scenes, and a cameo from Tony"Candyman" Todd. Devon Sawa is perfect as the teenager with a gift for seeing into thefuture. He goes through every emotion perfectly and portrays a verylayered character. Ali Larter is also pretty good as the lonely girlwho feels what Alex sees. She was interesting in a way where you didn'treally get to know what was up with her until towards the end, and herrelationship with Alex is interesting.Kerr Smith played a jerk off jock perfectly and made me really hate hischaracter. Kristen Cloke is pretty good as the teacher-turned paranoidmess. Sean William Scott is great comic relief. And Tony Todd, AmandaDetmer, and Chad E. Donnella do good with their small roles.However, I highly disliked Daniel Roebuck and Roger Guenveur Smith asthe detectives that get in the way. They were annoying, pointlesscharacters that just get in the way of an otherwise great horror movie.This film also spawned two fun sequels and I do not see why it didn'tskyrocket Devon Sawa's career.
Not only are the death scenes in this movie are thrilling, but thismovie is what I call 'genuine original horror'. Often when we watchother horror movies that include monstrous creatures, psychotickillers, and weird ghosts or spirits like 'The Ring', this particularvillain in Final Destination is the Grim Reaper. The Grim Reaper is adevilish spirit in who some of us believe and some of us don't. In thismovie, I believe the tension will crawl up in your nerves, and possiblyin the end thinking up of the question - Does the Grim Reaper reallyexist? or Is it true that some people who die of freak accidents arereally stalked by Death or just coincidences? Death is what I wouldcall the most inevitable villain, watching you at all times. Death doesnot appear in front of your eyes and is an invisible presence. Plus,it's definitely not one of those clichÃ©d horror films! My #1 favoritemovie! My rating: 10/10
Let's face it, roller coasters are one of those terrifying thrills that many of us have a attraction/aversion to on a primal kind of level. It makes the first 15 minutes of "Final Destination 3" truly scary in a white knuckle kind of horror way. It is easily the best thing about this movie, and the bonus disc shows just how much effort they put into making that tiny sequence as authentic as possible.Thus, when Wendy (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) has her premonition and then starts divining clues from her digital pictures, the blueprint for the very determined force of death offing the survivors (ala the original Final Destination) is in place. FD3 does so with humor and verve (putting the infamous scream from The Ohio Players' "Love Rollercoaster" was a great touch) while devising increasing grisly and freakish ways to kill off the seven survivors. Trust me, you'll want to swear off tanning beds after this one.The bonus features are what help elevate this DVD to the 4th star. The "Choose Their Fate" option offers both alternative takes and some really funny bonus clips (Frankie Cheeks' in particular) and a cool documentary about the "Dead Teenager Movie," featuring Roger Ebert. For a thrill ride movie, it takes a good perspective on itself.
My mom rented this movie from Netflix I liked this movie my mom told me that she thought that Final Destination3 was OK.She told me she likes 2 Final Destination movies better.The death that I like most in the movie when those 2 girls name Ashley & Ashlyn was in the Tanning Bed 7 when Lewis was in the weight training room.Mary Elizabeth Winstead & Ryan Merriman gave their Great Performance in this 3rd Sequel in Final Destination!!!!
In the on-slaught of new teen horror flicks, filled with obvious twists,lame acting, and cheesy writing, Final Destination pops out of the crowd andproves to be worthy. It still has a few cliches and flaws, but hey, the only90's teen slasher flick I think that beats it is Scream and it's sequel. Theplot involves high school students escaping a plane crash. Now Death isticked. So naturally, he kills them creativley. The following rush hasstyle, eerieness, gore, some cool characters, and two things missing frommost teen horror flicks: fun and smarts. If you are looking for afast-paced, well made, scarefest, and have already seen The Shining, EvilDead, Scream, and some other worthwhile terrorfests, pick up this littleslasher gem. A good ride.
Probably one of the top 5 movies I 've ever seen ( the others areArmageddon , 8 Mile , 6th Sense & Rocky )and the best teen thriller I've ever seen. The Idea is Great , the story is great and the executionis such as good. It had some gruesome deaths and it also shows therelationship of 6 teens who are totally different and they stick nowtogether in order to defeat death itself... The end of the movie isunbelievably great and ( for those who have seen the sequel where thelast survivors of flight 180 die ) I think that the meaning of thismovie is that nobody can cheat the death. I think that this is the bestteen thriller of all time and it is a must see movie for all thethriller fans.
This movie doesn't require much thought or analysis. There's no secret ending to guess,like The Sixth Sense. What Final Destinationdoes is pull you to the edge of your seat andkeep you there right through to the end. Ifyou're looking for nerve-wracking escapist fun, with a dash of shock-comedy, you'll love this movie. Devon Sawa is surprisingly good as a psychic highschooler trying to save the lives of his classmates by literally cheating death. Ali Larter is perfect as an unhappy young woman who share's Sawa's vision. (She's also a living doll.) Definitely give this one a try.
This was a kick butt movie! Plot was imaginative and believable. It wasamovie that was not "done" before... No guessing the ending on this one.Killer flick! Good movie too! :) The main characters were strong. Iwouldrecommend this one wholeheartedly to anyone looking for good entertainmentage 18 and over. Violence and some strong language.
In a crowded field of teen horror movies, it's a shame Final Destinationdidn't stand out more. It's well acted, well directed, and-- for the mostpart-- smartly written. Trouble is, it's inconsistent. Another problem isthat "Concept of Death" is such a hard villain to root against (or for, ifthat's your taste).It's refreshing to see high school characters played by actors who couldprobably get carded-- for the most part. Devon Sawa was great in the leadand played his role straight.Ali Lerner is one to watch (um, professionally, I mean) though she wasmoreengrossing in the sadly underrated "House on Haunted Hill" (a must-havefilmfor horror collectors whose brief box office life I blame on "TheHaunting"for souring audiences, but that's for another review).Tony Todd's performance as the mortician is fantastic, but it's too brief.He should have been used more, at least in more than onescene.Death has many ways of killing you in the bathroom, the kitchen, or on thestreet. You know people are going to die --and the writers know you know--so the appeal is in "how" they get knocked off one by one. Glen Morgan andJames Wong will treat you to some of the best red herrings in horrorfilms,setting up so many ways to die that you're kept guessing.Sometimes it's over the top. The teacher's death was more like a bloodyWileE. Coyote nightmare, enough was enough. The final confrontation with deathis intense but fun-- the teacher's death was comical anduninteresting.Kudos still go to Morgan and Wong for giving us a real storyline with realenough characters (I'd expect nothing less from the team that gave usSpace:Above & Beyond), instead of the usual throwaway dialogue to fill timebetween killings. At times I wish the script had more balance of drama andhorror, but they knew where the money was.And more kudos go to Wong for raising the bar on airplane disasters infilms. The first 15 minutes of the film alone made me feel I got mymoney'sworth.
A thrill ride of anticipation like you wouldn't believe, FinalDestination, helmed by some of the same creative minds behind the X-Filesand American Pie brings scary movies to a new level. Helmed by a promising,yet largely unknown, teen cast, Alex (Devon Sawa) is trying to preventDeath. Literally.Complex and compelling, this film makes Death an intangible,unpredictable entity. While Alex's premonitions range from visions, toslipsof paper, to reflections in glass, he's arrogant enough to think he cancheat Death and smart enough to pull it off. The premise may seem a littleout there, but this is a horror film relying on a strong plot and brilliantstorytelling.A little too gory for the faint of heart's tastes, Final Destination isa constant menagerie of soon-to-be-death scenes that make your heart skip abeat. Just when you think you have the story figured out or who's going tobuy the farm next, a bus rolls by or a live wire snaps to make you thinkotherwise. I would recommend this motion picture to someone who has a goodtime going to the movies and being afraid.
Final Destination is an original piece with a storyline somewhat out ofthe Twilight Zone. Basically a handful of teenagers escape death (dueto the premonitions of the lead character) by boarding off of a planewhich explodes shortly after it takes off. Shortly afterward, they allbegin to die one by one...in what at first appears to be randomcircumstances.My liking of this movie comes mostly due to the fact that movie offersa fairly original screenplay (in todays movies) and its (though light)existential approach. The acting is alright, nothing special, but thenagain nothing really bad (Ala some of the other slasher films of thelate ninties).In short I think this is one of the more intelligent and original filmsof recent days and would recommend people to watch it at least once.Like I said the acting is nothing special, and the story does have acouple of flaws in it, but overall its fairly enjoyable.(If you haven't seen the movie yet...please READ NO FURTHER!!!) Mybiggest problem lies after the characters figure out about death'splan. To me it seems that there shouldn't have been anyway that theycould have cheated the plan (in the second one it gets even worse)..butthey do. I know some of you might point to the last scene...but thefact that they could make it even that long.....well suspension ofdisbelief I guess.
Better than the average slasher film because the "slasher" was the grimreaper, an unknown and almost unstoppable entity, much harder to deal with,there just wasn't anywhere to escape, and nothing you could do to "cheatdeath". The character development was OK, but not great. All in all themovie was well done, good special effects too. There was one annoyingcharacter in the movie, that was its worst point. I recommend this andgiveit 8 out of 10!!!
i think that the movie was AWESOME!! i would probably say that the first one was better because it was the first one in all. but i bought this movie the day it came out and i have watched it 3 times so far. (im gonna watch it this weekend too). the special features were also really AWESOME too!! it showed how they made it and stuff. i also thought that it was kinda scary when i first saw it in the theater (but now when i watch it..im not..lol)....and Ryan Merriman is also REALLY REALLY CUTE!!
