QUICK TAKE:
Horror: Following them barely surviving a horrific bridge collapse, various office workers must contend with Death apparently still wanting them dead.
PLOT:
Sam (NICHOLAS D'AGOSTO) works at a paper company for Peter (MILES FISHER) and their big boss, Dennis (DAVID KOECHNER), but really dreams of being a chef and thus also works at a local restaurant. His opportunity to take a culinary internship in Paris, however, has caused his coworker and girlfriend, Molly (EMMA BELL), to reconsider their relationship as they and others head off for a corporate retreat.

Others joining them include intern and college gymnast Candice (ELLEN WROE); sexy Olivia (JACQUELINE MacINNES WOOD) who can't see without her glasses; lecherous and self-centered Isaac (P.J. BYRNE); and plant foreman Nathan (ARLEN ESCARPETA) who must contend with mean union rep. Roy (BRENT STRAIT) back at the plant.

As they make their way toward the retreat, Sam has a vision of a horrific bridge collapse incident where everyone but Molly dies. When the real thing then seems to be starting, Sam gets Molly and runs for the end of the bridge, followed by his boss and various coworkers. As a result, they barely avoid dying in the calamity, an incident that rouses the interest of federal Agent Block (COURTNEY B. VANCE) who thinks it's suspicious that Sam knew it was going to happen in advance.

That incident is ruled a tragic accident and Sam is let go, but Block is back on the case when a number of Sam's fellow surviving coworkers die in gruesome accidents. But none of that comes as a surprise to the Coroner (TONY TODD) who claims that Death doesn't like to be cheated and thus is coming back after those who were supposed to die. From that point on, and as the workers die in the order they did in Sam's initial vision, he and the others try to avoid anything that might lead to their demise.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of any of the first four "Final Destination" films, it's a good bet they will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: R
For strong violent/gruesome accidents, and some language.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.
