Cast: Bobby Campo, Shantel VanSanten, Nick Zano, Haley Webb, and Mykelti Williamson.
Plot: Baiscally the same plot as the others. Nick (Bobby Campo) and his friends (Shantel VanSanten, Nick Zano, and Haley Webb) are all attending a NASCAR race when Nick has a premonition that he, his friends, and a bunch of other people are going to be killed in a terrible crash. He gets himself, his friends, and a few other people out before the crash takes place and then the crash actually happens. Now after that everyone who was supposed to die in the horrible accident starts to die off in the order they were supposed to die in the crash. Really there is nothing new here.
Breakdown: While this movie is for the most part an exact copy of the others with different ways of death, this one just didn’t have the same creepy feel that the other three films had. One thing is the pace of the movie is very fast because the movie is only an hour and fifteen minutes long, not including credits. Also the movie is stuctured horribly and other than people dying there is no real story here. At least with the other three we got to get a little bit into the characters before they bite the bullet. This time around right after the accident everyone starts dying. With the same director as the second film, which I thought was the best of the series, you would you think movie should have been a lot better. Not even the 3D aspect or the uninspired ways of death could save this movie.
Performances: Everyone, except for one person, does a terrible job acting here, but you can expect that when you watch the trailer. Bobby Campo, Shantel VansSanten, Nick Zano, and Haley Webb all prove that they really cannot act. Granted they are all no name actors so at least they don’t have to worry about their acting reputations being messed with. Mykelti Williamson (Forrest Gump, Heat) plays George and gives the only worthy performance. But really what do you expect when your the only veteran actor in the entire movie. He was the only character I didn’t want to see die a bloody death.
Overall: The Final Destination is easily the worst movie in the series. It offers no shock value and its nothing new or original. I’d say skip this one unless you really are a die hard fan. Heres hoping that theres not a fifth Final Destination.
