Corrected entry: At least one or two tragedies or accidents in each of the three final Destination films are based on real life events. In this movie, Flight 180 was based on Trans World Flight 800, which also crashed right after takeoff, leaving JFK for Paris' Charles de Gaulle airport, and both were carrying a group of students going to Paris on a class trip.Jazetopher
Corrected entry: At the start when you see Alex, Tod and co. walking down the walkway to the plane you can see that their heads are almost touching the ceiling. You can tell it was shortened to make the path longer for the appropriate sequence and then after when they reach the turning the ceiling is much higher. (00:09:45)
Corrected entry: The teacher pours vodka in her mug which cracks. The vodka drops down as she walks into the living room. If really she lost so much vodka like we see catching fire later, it must have been a real waterfall, so why didn't she notice that?
Corrected entry: In the scene inside the airport right as you see the plane take off, Sean William Scott jumps and yells way before the plane actually explodes on screen.
Corrected entry: When they are about to enter the plane, we see Alex, Todd and his brother walking the hallway to the plane, and right behind them, you can see Carter and his girl, but when they turn 90 degrees, we see Alex , Todd and his brother, but Carter and his girl are gone.
Corrected entry: In the "original" version of the plane crash you can see that Alex fastens his seatbelt in a direct closeup shot. When he awakens from his premonition the seatbelt should be fastened because he did so before Christa and Blake asked him to change places. He doesn't remove it though in the second version of the plane crash before he rushes to Todd.
Corrected entry: When Terri steps onto the road and is killed by the speeding bus, the bus is travelling from left to right when it hits her. But, if you look further down the street, where the bus supposedly had just come from (a few seconds earlier, during the dialogue between the other characters), the camera pans round and you can see a large yellow crane blocking off the entire road, so the bus could not have actually come from that direction.scott69
Corrected entry: When Alex wakes up after his vision of the crash, he leaps out of his seat and tries to get off the plane. The male French teacher says 'Alex, qu'est-ce que c'est?' Literally translated, this means 'Alex, what is it?', but in a very literal sense; for example, you would say 'qu'est-ce que c'est' if you were asking what an unfamiliar object is. To say 'what is it' as in 'what's the matter', the teacher should have said 'Alex, qu'est-ce qu'il y a?' Would a 'veteran' French teacher have got this wrong?
Corrected entry: After Tod has died, Alex is walking under some trees and a leaf falls to the ground. The wire attached to the leaf is visible as it falls.
Corrected entry: When Billy looks out of the airport window, you can see that there was a model plane used when you see it take off. (00:18:00)
Corrected entry: In the last scene where Carter, Clear and Alex are in Paris, Clear sees the reflection of the bus. Shortly after that the bus hits the pole that flies up and unleashes the billboard that kills Carter. The pole cannot fly so high and cut the billboard loose.
Corrected entry: The plane explodes creating a rather small fireball. this shows us that it happened far away. Nevertheless the airport's windows are blown into pieces. Did you ever notice how heavy these windows usually are? They would never have been smashed by an explosion that far away. Could be argued that the plane was close enough to smash the windows, in which case the plane and explosion are too small. A mistake one way or another.
Corrected entry: When Carter pulls up in his new Nova, he is playing the Nine Inch Nails song, 'Into the Void' and just after he sees Alex he drives on when the song is on the first verse, but 3 seconds later it is right near the end, the song has skipped over 2 minutes.
Corrected entry: When Alex checks in his suitcase, watch carefully. The ticket that's attached to his suitcase says "Final destination".
Corrected entry: The CG is very obvious when Ms. Lewton is wiping her teapot then sees the apparition reflected in it.
Corrected entry: When the girl is hit by the bus, if you frame-by-frame, you see that the bus has no one on it, including a driver.
Corrected entry: After they got kicked out of the plane, the pilot says to the police officer that nobody gets back on the plane, and that it is his call. He only has 3 stripes, so he is only a First Officer, and has virtually nothing to say on the plane when the Captain (4 stripes) is still alive.Ronnie Bischof
Corrected entry: When Alex and Clear are sitting on the beach Clear tells Alex that her father was killed when she was 10. Later on in the movie Clear looks at a picture of her and her father on a fishing trip. The back of the picture says me and dad "1986". If she is a high school senior that would make her 18 years old. In the picture she appears to be about 10 years old. If she was 10 in 1986 that would make her about 23 in the movie - a little old for a high school senior.
Corrected entry: When the billboard is cut loose at the end, it first swings next to the building. When Carter asks who's next, the billboard suddenly comes from behind him.
Corrected entry: After Alex and the other five get off of the plane, after Alex's premonition, the go back to the airport gate lounge and you can see that the appearance has totally changed than what it was before boarding the plane, (e.g. the cappuccino bar.). (00:16:25)
Corrected entry: After Alex has the dream about the plane exploding and they're back in the airport, Billy says that he was in the bathroom and he doesn't know what was going on. But in Alex's dream everything happened exactly to what happened in real life, but he wasn't in the bathroom in the dream.
Corrected entry: So in the movie, we find out that there is a pattern to how everybody dies. its in the order they would've died in Alex's vision. But at the very end, Alex realizes that he never moved, and so Clear was supposed to die before. The problem with that is he did move in his vision. That means that we are not going by his vision, but where everybody sat down in what really happened. If this is so, then Billy should not have died because though he got on the plane in Alex's vision, he never actually got on the plane or sat down in what really happened (Remember, he wasn't allowed on the plane because they had gotten in the fight and he was late coming from the bathroom).
Corrected entry: At the memorial, when Billy is telling Alex about his driving test, if you look closely behind Alex you can see Todd walking towards the eagle sculpture with a rose in his hand. But then Billy walks away and it shows Todd and his parents in their seats and Todd is about to go up and put the same flower on the eagle.
Corrected entry: As for the train scene, when Alex is trying to pull Carter out of the car, you see the train from over his shoulder, and it's about 50 feet away. Yet, they continue to struggle for about 30 seconds.
Corrected entry: When Tod is getting strangled by the wire there is a quick shot of Tod's dad downstairs asleep, and when it changes back to Tod being strangled, in the first shot, you can see that the wire has gone. (00:34:45)
Corrected entry: When they were boarding the plane "a 747", he looks out the window and sees the trailing edge of the wing "flap assembly". However, his seat position in the aircraft would actually put him about 4 rows in front of the wing. This is even depicted on the little diagram he drew of the plane, while tracing the 'fire path' from his seat location.
Corrected entry: When the water leaks in Tod's bathroom, if you look carefully at the tiles they are not in very good shape. This was deliberately achieved for the water to make its path. (00:32:55)
Corrected entry: When Alex is at the airport at the start of the film he takes his luggage and proceeds to a luggage belt counter where he talks to a French woman. She says that the return date is September 25. At the start credits you see Alex's flight ticket and the date of departure is May 13 and they are on their trip for ten days. If their return date was in September, they would be in France for about four/five months.
Corrected entry: She then puts the mug on the rear topside of her computer screen, but only for a second. Nevertheless there are gallons of vodka on and in the rear end of the screen, enough to cause a short-circuit!
Corrected entry: Carter is driving, while Alex is talking to Billy and Clear. When the camera shows Carter, you can see that the shops in the background pass a number of times. For example, a bright coloured neon sign surrounding a shop is the best one to spot. This indicates they are just going around in circles.
Corrected entry: Billy said that the FBI was looking for Alex in connection with the teacher's death. His footprints were found in the blood and his fingerprints where found all over the knife. This would be suitable evidence to put him away for a long time, yet after he almost dies they just let him go. He goes to Paris in the end. Surely they wouldn't allow this?
Corrected entry: At the end, with Alex, Carter and Clear sitting around the table, Alex pulls out the diagram of where everyone was sitting. He is marked as sitting next to the window but when you saw him on the plane, he was one seat in from the window which means he marked his seat wrong.
Corrected entry: In Final Destination part 2 the girl has to die and then come back to life in the end in order to stop death and the plan that death has to kill them all, so she drowns herself and then they reanimate her and it ends. But in Final Destination 1 Alex dies in the end of the movie because he grabs the cable of Clears car and gets shocked and when he's lying on the ground the officer checks his pulse and says he's not breathing so that means he's dead and they reanimated him because you see him in France later in the movie and death still hasn't stop killing..
Corrected entry: At the end of the film, when Alex, Clear and Carter are sitting outside of the cafe in Paris, they all talk about Alex being next. Alex starts noticing things around him and he walks off, telling Clear and Carter to return to the hotel, clear sees the bus in the reflection and calls out Alex by his name and saves his life. The bus leads to some events that lead to Carter saving Alex's life and making Carter the next one on the list, you can see the sign coming down and killing him. With Carter dead, that would make Clear next on the list but in the 2nd film, Clear says she had to look after and was responsible for Alex and he died before she did but Clear was suppose to be next on death's list, not Alex so the film makers got it the wrong way around.
Corrected entry: In the scene at the beginning when some of the students have left the plane after Alex has had his bad dream, the plane starts to leave without them. Alex and his fellow classmates exchange a few words, have a fight and they see the plane fly off without them and then it explodes. Thing is, is that there is no way in the short space of time that they were fighting and talking that the plane could leave the boarding gate, taxi to the runway, wait for another take off slot, take off, fly for about a minute or two then explode.
Corrected entry: If Alex thinks that the fishing hook in the cabin was an attack on his life he would have considered that he has been skipped and that Clears next. Unlikely he doesn't leave the cabin to protect Clear...
Corrected entry: In the scene where Clear is in the car and Alex is grabbing the electrical wire, most electrical wires have insulation around them (rubber or something like that) so it wouldn't electrocute him. But, lets just say there wasn't insulation around the wire, he could have just put his hands inside his jacket or shirt and that would have insulated the wire and he would not have been electrocuted.
Corrected entry: When Alex is watching the TV on how the plane crashed, and he says that the first explosion happened right above Todd's seat, it wasn't Todd's seat, it was the one Alex was sitting in in his dream.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the train hits Carter's car, the train does not stop. Surely the train driver would attempt to slow down afterwards.
Corrected entry: When Mrs. Lewton (the teacher) is in her house, she gets a piece of computer screen stuck in her throat. She runs to the kitchen, and when she falls, she tries to get the dish towel to wipe up the blood. When the knife came down into her chest, and the chair fell on her (to push the knife in farther) you can see the knife fall flat. In the next scene the knife is straight up again.
Corrected entry: In the beginning when the students are told they won't be allowed onto the plane, it seems that the plane leaves right after the teacher gets back on. There is absolutely no way their luggage would be allowed on the plane without them. Their bags would have to be found and removed, and then the plane could take off.
Corrected entry: There are only 2 teachers going to Paris with the class, so when both teachers get off the plane Mrs. Lewton tells the security guard that one of them has to get back on because they can't send a class of students without a teacher with them. Then later when Alex is watching the news it says there were 4 teachers on the plane. Why would Mrs. Lewton say that one of them had to be on the plane, if there were still 2 other teachers on board with them? (00:16:30)
Corrected entry: The whole premise of the teacher's death scene is very unbelievable. Along with the other mistakes noted above about this scene there are a couple more. Instead of vodka she must have been drinking nothing short of gasoline noting the height and intensity of the flames. Also, when the house was on fire, what made it explode with such violence. A gas stove would not even come close to creating such an explosion.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Alex has a premonition of the plane crash then wakes up, Carter gets in a fight with him and they get thrown off the plane, yet when it shows Carter going out the jet-way he does not have his jacket with him. In the next scene when they are all in one room, he has his jacket on. How can that be when he leaves it on the plane?
Corrected entry: When the plane has taken off in Alex's vision there is some minor turbulance, then some major turbulance, then the side of the plane is rippd off, then abit of a struggle and it finally blows up. Yet when it shows the disaster in the background from the airport, it blows up seconds after takeoff.gandolfs dad
Corrected entry: As a consequence of the short-circuit the screen explodes and she gets hit by a big piece of glass. But this was a regular screen with a CRT inside. Such a screen can not explode. There might have been an implosion...
Corrected entry: This movie seems to change all the laws of physics. When Alex is rolling down the hill he miraculously stops himself from getting impaled. He would never to stop dead like that with the momentum he built up.
Corrected entry: After all the students arrive at the top of the escalator at the airport, the old guy teacher says something in French as he stops them as an announcement comes on. What he says, literally translated, is "What is it's name?" Why would he be asking this question when he's stopping them to hear an announcement about the airport?
Corrected entry: After Billy's beheading, Alex has a little panic, and Clear shouts at him to calm down, except that she calls him Billy.
Corrected entry: If the movie supposedly takes place in south-eastern New York, why are all of the announcements in the public address system spoken in French? I don't think so, not in the USA.
