THE FINAL DESTINATION (2009)

If this film had been the first FINAL DESTINATION movie there wouldn't be a franchise right now. Four completely forgettable dorks go to a race car track. One has a premonition about some of poorly rendered CG race cars flying into the stands and exploding into cable channel quality CG flames. The dude freaks and runs out of the stands taking various people with him. They're all saved, blah, blah, blah. Angel of Death.

I'm sure the makers of this film meant well, but the movie looks fucking terrible. The green screen effects are so bad you can actually tell when something is about to happen before it happens. That's unacceptable. As entertainment FD4 is passable (to laugh at), but that's really it. The kills are boring, the characters I wanted to kill myself, the special effects suck and there's absolutely nothing added to the FD story. Even the one brief topless scene was a yawner.

Only worth watching if you are really, really bored.
