The Final Destination (2009)

After watching the dark trip into the mind of serial killer John Wayne Gacy, I decided to venture into something different with some 3D action. My selection for the late night was The Final Destination from 2009.

Plot/ After a young man's premonition of a deadly race-car crash helps saves the lives of his peers, Death sets out to collect those who evaded their end.

This 3D horror sequel definitely took its 3D billing seriously. Hell, even in 2D, you can see the 3D design with everything.  However, that may be the best part of the movie, as the acting is so-so, the storyline cliché and at 80 minutes it never truly dives into the discussions of death that made the other movies in the franchise at least interesting. In the end, yes, the pacing is good, some of the effects are decent and there are even a few interesting deaths, but that is nowhere near enough to make it a good flick. Sure, it is somewhat entertaining, but unless you are a serious fan of this horror franchise, I would recommend you stay away (I am sure you can find something more interesting).
