The opening sequence to the 2000 supernatural thriller/horror Final Destination is one of the most tense scenes I had ever experienced at the time. After seeing the trailers and understanding the concept, I watched these kids board a plane that I knew was going to blow up and I was screaming internally for them to get off. Watching Alex’s nightmare unfold and each and every horrific moment of the mid-air explosion splashed across the screen, it was enough to scar me forever when it comes to flying. I still get creeped out right before take off, no matter how many times I’ve flown.
While perusing through YouTube, I stumbled across a new video that offers an alternate theory as to why the plane exploded in Final Destination and it all stems from one hardened and pissed off New York police officer by the name of John McClane. Yup, you read that right! A faux alternate opening to Final Destination – which is being labelled as an alternate ending to Die Hard 2 – takes scenes from both films to create a fantastic and, in my opinion, hilarious mashup.
Yippee-Ki-Yay, mother fuckers!
