Humanity has never been so fragile as it is in the Final Destination movies. Our bodies are effectively water balloons filled with blood, ready to explode, our heads mere tubers just waiting to be crushed, sliced, grated, or meringued. Ridiculous because the individual deaths, especially as the series wears on, become impossibly ornate, abstract, and silly. And for those of us who in real life spend a lot of time catastrophizing matters both big and small which at this point might be all of us , a Final Destination movie serves as both an indulgence and an inoculation for bad thoughts. Right after boarding a flight to Paris with the rest of his French class, high school senior Alex Browning Devon Sawa has a detailed, beat-by-deadly-beat vision of a fiery accident in the sky. He freaks out, and in the ensuing chaos a few of his companions are forced off the airplane, which takes off without them and promptly explodes. Over the following days, however, the survivors themselves start to die off in a series of Byzantine freak accidents. In the first, they realize that if they can force death to skip one of them, they can break the curse.
