Synopsis


Final Destination
In this teenage horror film, a young man avoids the hand of death, only to find that he can't get away from it so easily. On the way to Paris with his high-school French club, Alex Browning (Devon Sawa) has a vivid premonition of the plane crashing and killing all its passengers. After Alex and some other passengers demand to be let off the flight, his premonition turns out to be true, and the jet explodes during takeoff. While the FBI is convinced that Alex was involved in some kind of foul play, the passengers who got off the flight are all dying in horrible ways, as if whoever determined that the passengers would perish is punishing those who cheated death. Final Destination marked the feature directorial debut of James Wong, a producer and director for the TV series The X Files. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

    I cannot recommend this Blu-ray, especially if you already own this title on DVD. The Visuals on this disc are terrible and really cannot even qualify as hidef. The image is soft and visually blurry at times. Colors are OK, but will not impress you. I sense quite a bit of Edge enhancement and some kind of filtering going on here. The newly remastered soundtrack is the only redeeming quality, with a 5.1 TrueHD reference audio track, which sounds pretty darn good, its just a shame the video didn't match up! I really like this movie, but in its current Blu-ray condition, I would steer clear of this release.

    Better than Most recent horror

    This is not a great film. What makes it entertaining and worth considering to buy or simply watch is that though it is only average at best as a film, it is still miles above the current gore and torture style of horror film making. If you are someone who actually likes suspense and thrills this might work better for you than the pure gore soaked rides of the current horror genre. However, in the big picture this film is average or slightly below.

    This movie is one of the best horror movies I have ever seen. Death stalks a group of tenagers; killing them one by one. no one can escape death because its our destiny to die sooner or later. i mean how these characters died was quite scary. I have nightmares every time i watch this movie.

    Final Destination is a great flick to watch with a large group. Guessing which will be next to die in the most gruesome way of accidents are the film's highlights. The sequels are more for a cash grabs and very cliche.

    Another great scary movie that made me jump, and thats when you got a great horror flick, when grown men are jumping because of the killing. This movie made cheating death, a stupid move if you are not playing for keeps.

    The kind of movie that makes your brain stop to think. If you don't mind the graphic deaths, it's a pretty awesome movie.
