Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Final Destination has intense scenes of violence and gore peppered throughout. The death of the victims in these scenes is not caused by another person, but instead by circumstance and "chance" instigated by the shadowy figure of Death, who is sometimes seen as a blur in the background. There is very little sexual content aside from a make-out scene and a glimpse of a naked women in a magazine. Profanity is limited to our introduction to the high school students at the beginning of the film.
- Sexual Content
- Brief shot of a couple making out. A main character picks up a Penthouse magazine and we briefly see an interior photo of a naked woman.
- As a plane explodes we see the terrifying effect on the passengers inside (e.g. people burning, lots of blood), a teenager accidentally hangs himself, a boy's head is cut in half by a flying piece of metal, a woman's throat is slashed and she is stabbed by knives that fall off a kitchen counter. There are other violent scenes where Death tries to take people's lives but fails.
- Some strong language at the very beginning of the film (teenagers using foul language).
- Social Behavior
- The main character tries to do good by attempting to save the lives of those he thinks are going to die. He is also willing to give his own life to save another.
