The Final Destination series gets a kick-start with this fourth outing, headed up by the production team behind the second film -- director David R. Ellis and writer Eric Bress. The New Line franchise will be presented for the first time in 3-D with this installment focusing on a teenager that dodges a trip to the grave at a racetrack, only to find that death has a way of equaling the playing field after the fact. Shantel VanSanten, Bobby Campo, and Hayley Webb star in the sequel. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Since not even 3-D can put your eyes out, our only hope is that this time, the title is a promise and not a tease."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"With the exception of Williamson, the actors are as disposable as their characters, and there is no story to speak of."
‑ Elizabeth Weitzman, New York Daily News
"The Final Destination is a catastrophe in and of itself."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"There's absolutely no reason for The Final Destination to exist other than the only one Hollywood studios really care about: a cynical cash grab. [Blu-ray]"
‑ Peter Canavese, Groucho Reviews
"If The Final Destination is what horror fans want these days, be very, very afraid."
‑ Christian Toto, What Would Toto Watch?
"[A] silly and predictable fourth installment in the lucrative thriller series about pretty young people attempting to cheat death."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"Even a mediocre FD is better than more Jigsaw."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"Imagine a film that features an endless cavalcade of people being eviscerated in the bloodiest and bone-snappiest of ways, yet which somehow manages to inspire the audience to envy the victims."
‑ Simon Miraudo, Quickflix
"Like too many horror franchises, a premise that was once scary has evolved into something campy and self-aware."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"Selling bland fatalism to kids, it's the work of crooks."
‑ Mark Palermo, Coast (Halifax, Nova Scotia)
"[The] set pieces never quite muster the giddy brio of Final Destination 1 and 3 auteur James Wong at his best."
‑ Scott Foundas, L.A. Weekly
"Death comes in 3D but everything else is tedious."
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"screams 'made for TV'"
‑ John A. Nesbit, Old School Reviews
"...if you've seen one such movie, you've seen them all, and one is too much."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"The film showers you with gore while dumping a motor engine in your lap and poking you in the eye with a burnt stick."
‑ Sandra Hall, Sydney Morning Herald
