Consensus: With little of the ingenuity of previous installments, The Final Destination is predictable, disposable horror fare.

Jeannette Catsoulis
New York Times

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.

Elizabeth Weitzman
New York Daily News

With the exception of Williamson, the actors are as disposable as their characters, and there is no story to speak of.

An absolute slap in the face to the fans who made the franchise a hit in the first place.

[A] silly and predictable fourth installment in the lucrative thriller series about pretty young people attempting to cheat death.

Death comes in 3D but everything else is tedious.

[The] set pieces never quite muster the giddy brio of Final Destination 1 and 3 auteur James Wong at his best.

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.

Some of the worst CGI I have ever seen. Considering this film was made in 2009, there should be no excuse! There is nothing new here as far as the script goes,… More

Well, you can't blame them for trying. In it's defense, I did rewind a couple of the death sequences. It's a formula that can't fail those… More

I have watched all the final destinations except the first one! Damn. But I'd say the second one is better than this. First time I found a movie like this… More

Although the others were pretty bad, this was awful. It was supposed to be the final one so it should have topped all the others. As usual the acting was bad… More
