The Final Destination [2009] Movie Review Recommendation

The Final Destination [2009]

Ahhhh The Final Destination franchise, the memories. This strange murder-pulp concoction of brutal and creative death scenes shot as accidents was a very successful one. Sure, the whole thing revolves around a couple of bizarre and deadly accidents, but at least it’s entertaining. The milking continues with this one, but I must admit that it does not follow the classic story of somewhat altered characters and the same plot as seen before. The Final Destination [2009] represents a certain homage to the whole idea of the death trying to get you. There’s no grand blockbuster feel that could be sensed in the others, this time they used a more of a simplistic approach. This little spin actually worked and created a very engaging back-story, something to do while you’re waiting The Final Destination [2009] Movie Review Recommendation Posterfor the next accident.

Movie opens with a grand slaughter scene, and some of the participants do not die because of the premonition that one of them had. So now, death is coming to collect all the souls that were supposed to die that day. Effects are good, you can see that they sparred some expense, but they are still cool. Anyways, pretty decent flick, definitely worth watching, and of course as always in Final Destination franchise expect some weird and complex death sequences. This marks the fourth installation in the franchise and it’s actually the one that was scorned by critics and adored at theaters. In my opinion it’s same as any other “destination” flick, there are five of them and after all these years they are extremely fit for a weekend binger. Enjoy.
