Movie Review by Steven
June 13th, 2009

What is so interesting about "Final Destination" is its premise. It is so creative, and the result is a great horror movie. It is not like the slasher movies or the monster movies; the film suggests death can come at any time, in any situation. The death scenes were not over the top except for the scene where the teacher slashed to death (and she wasn't chased by a masked maniac). The scene that is my favorite has to be the plane crash scene (a dream sequence). The way the scene was filmed was too realistic for me, watching in the theater I thought I was on the plane (I s@*t you not).

It also seemed to me that death was playing games (mind games if you will) with the characters; almost as if death was one step ahead of them.

The death scenes were brutal, but it is a horror film. A great one. "Final Destinaion" has become a profitable franchise over the years. I actually am not getting tired of them because the premise still is there and some (some) of the death scenes could happen which makes "Final Destination" scary and isn't that what a horror movie (a good horror movie) is supposed to do.
