Death doesn't take no for an answer. Death is coming. And Alex Browning is cursed with knowing when, how and where the grim reaper will take his next victim to the Final Destination. After boarding a plane to Europe with his fellow, French, club members, high school student Alex Browning (Devon Sawa) has a premonition of the aircraft exploding moments after takeoff, killing everyone on board. Alex panics, insisting that everyone get off the plane. In the melee that ensues, seven people, including Alex, are forced to disembark--saving them from a fiery death when the plane explodes as Alex foresaw. But as, one by one, each of these seven who cheated fate meets an untimely end, Alex and his remaining friends band together to try to change destiny and outwit the untamable forces of death.

Critics Consensus: Despite a panel of X-Files' alums at the helm and a promising premise, flighty performances and poor execution keep Final Destination from ever taking off.

Teens fear the reaper in this so-so thriller.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Final Destination has intense scenes of violence and gore peppered throughout. The death of the victims in these scenes is not caused by another person, but instead by circumstance and "chance" instigated by the shadowy figure of Death, who is sometimes seen as a blur in the background. There is very little sexual content aside from a make-out scene and a glimpse of a naked women in a magazine. Profanity is limited to our introduction to the high school students at the beginning of the film.
