The Final Destination movies always kick off with a premonition of doom, followed by a group of people -- usually young and beautiful -- managing to escape the carnage before it happens. But then they find out that fate, or Death, is attempting to set right the universe by arranging terrible "accidents" for each of the escapees in the order they would have died. It's like Donnie Darko without plot or character development, and an emphasis instead on gruesome, chain-of-consequences demises extrapolated from the playbooks of Rube Goldberg and Wile E. Coyote. This time, the big accident happens on a roller coaster. Gruesome deaths ensue, and breasts are bared as utterly moronic dialogue is spoken. It's clearer than ever before that these films are comedy. Granted, the sick kind of comedy that involves laughing at stupid people being ripped in half, but we know there are plenty of you out there.
