Final Destination (2000)


“In death there are no accidents, no coincidences, no mishaps, and no escapes” – Bludworth

Number of Times Seen – Twice (3 Sep 2002 and 1 Mar 2021)

Brief Synopsis – A teenager has a premonition that the plane that is to take his class to Europe will crash and after a group of them decide not to take the trip, they mysteriously begin to die.

My Take on it –This is a movie that I saw on video years ago with a group of friends and was intrigued about the premise despite it being classified in the horror genre.

The way that this move along is great because of the direction that the story takes.

Great premise that works so well.

As someone who is not a fan of horror movies, I really enjoyed the way that this story plays out.

They find some very innovative ways to keep surprising the viewer along the way and that adds to the suspense the whole way through.

The story might be within the horror genre, yet they still find ways to bring up a philosophical discussion as to whether we are all fated to die at a certain time and that we cannot escape this destiny or not.

The characters are all pretty superficial and feel like canon fodder for this premise, yet, it still comes along quite entertaining throughout.

There are (so far) 4 sequels to this film and this still remains the best of the lot.

Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The story was originally the concept for an abandoned The X-Files (1993) television script, which was inspired by Sole Survivor (1984). (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10)
