Final Destination

No accidents. No coincidences. No escapes. You can’t cheat death.

High school student Alex Browning (Devon Sawa) has a nightmare where he and his classmates die in a plane crash; the dream is so vivid he skips an upcoming flight… and sees the plane go down in flames. But he and his friends who stayed on the ground with him soon learn that this film’s tagline is true. It’s a good idea for a movie, and the filmmakers must have enjoyed coming up with ways to kill the teens without introducing an actual murderer; they are particularly fond of using pyrotechnics. It’s pretty creative and entertaining, but don’t look for much credibility.

2000-U.S. 97 min. Color. Directed by James Wong. Cast: Devon Sawa (Alex Browning), Ali Larter (Clear Rivers), Kerr Smith (Carter Horton), Kristen Cloke, Daniel Roebuck, Roger Guenveur Smith… Seann William Scott, Tony Todd.

Trivia: The story was allegedly based on an unused script for The X-Files. Followed by four sequels, starting with Final Destination 2 (2003).
