Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Patricia Kim O'Cone
A well-crafted nightmare with a hip and charming cast, Final Destination transcends the self-referencing parody infused in many modern-day teen horror films. Alex (Devon Sawa) is a clairvoyant student bound for Paris who, after a disturbing vision of his flight crashing, keeps himself and six others on terra firma only to witness the plane explode during take-off. But the magnificent seven turn out to be not as lucky as originally thought: One by one they are brutally met by their originally intended fate, and only psychic Alex can see it coming. Together with fellow student Clear (Ali Larter), he must beat the clock to outsmart Death's game -- if that's possible. Director/writer team James Wong and Glen Morgan put their experience as X-Files alumni to thrilling use in their feature film debut. Quick cuts are interlaced with suspenseful situations to create twists and turns as thrilling as anything in The Sixth Sense. Time may heal all wounds, but in Final Destination, Death's clock ticks with a vengeance.
