Anne (Hope Davis) is a psychiatrist working at a hospital for the criminally insane whose latest charge is Bill Tyler (Denis Leary), a man who was recently admitted when he was found inside a wrecked truck found in a quarry. Bill isn't sure just where he is or what's happened to him, but he's certain he's traveled four centuries into the future, and if he can't find a way to get back to the past within 48 hours, assassins will… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"One of the slowest-moving films in a long, long, long while."
‑ Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle
"Shot digitally, Final is less than terrific technically; focus and sound levels waver. Luckily, these flaws are not inconsistent with the film's raw, unvarnished tone."
‑ Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
"Worth it for Leary fans who want to see him stretch a bit."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Final's redundant, stiff, colorless meetings between Bill and Ann are staged at such a leisurely pace that we're waiting for someone to shut them up and provide some real tension."
‑ KJ Doughton, Film Threat
"In the end, Final simply doesn't have much going for it."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"A surprisingly effective, off-beat little movie."
‑ Eric Harrison, Houston Chronicle
"Leary -- and the film itself -- keeps the audience off guard."
‑ Claudia Puig, USA Today
"While vaguely reminiscent of VANILLA SKY, it lacks the pretty big-name stars, the sci-fi trappings, and the cop-out ending - and is all the better for it."
‑ Brian Mckay,
"Best known as a gritty wiseass, Denis Leary creates a fine dramatic performance as Bill, as does his co-star Hope Davis whose screen presence is glacial and entirely believable."
‑ Christopher Varney, Film Threat
" ever-present potential for both greater depth and goosepimply plot developments goes largely unrealized."
‑ Rob Blackwelder, SPLICEDWire
"Emerges as engrossing and thought-provoking."
‑ Gary Dowell, Dallas Morning News
"The pace suddenly picks up and the pieces of the puzzle start falling into place for Bill and for the audience."
‑ V.A. Musetto, New York Post
"...this semi-interesting premise has been stretched incredibly thin over the course of close to two hours..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A lifeless vacuum."
‑ Tom Block,
"A movie that tries your patience but, finally, rewards it handsomely."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
