Kill or be killed

While it was not a great or perfect film (particularly in the dialogue, ending and some of the acting), the first 'Final Destination' was entertaining and effective (especially with its terrific opening plane sequence and the creative deaths) with a fascinating idea done well.

The bigger and bolder 'Final Destination 2' had its flaws but was just as good and perhaps the best of the four sequels. 'Final Destination 3' is just as big and bold, as well as gorier, and is also as good. 'The Final Destination' was however a big disappointment, easily the series' worst and to me the only bad film in the series. After wearing off and becoming stale in 'The Final Destination', despite the more of the same structure, 'Final Destination 5' shows the novelty returning and being refreshed and refined. It's as good as the previous three and a huge improvement over 'The Final Destination'.

'Final Destination 5' isn't perfect. The down-time and exposition between the deaths is turgid and clumsily written, saying very little interesting.

Characters are as shallow as to be expected, the dialogue is just as flimsy and the effects look pretty cheap.

However, the opening bridge scene is spectacular and perhaps the best opening of the series. The ending is also the series' cleverest, the only truly shocking one and the least illogical and contrived. The story has more time to develop and while it uses the time it does it in a way that makes everything as tight as possible. Really enjoyed the interesting new plot rule that allows the tension and thrills to register strongly.

Standing out in particular are the deaths. They are very scary, very inventive in terms of being bold and elaborate and surprisingly witty. They are also quite gory, but not gratuitously so or in a way where it's overused and abused. The laser-eye surgery and acupuncture ones are especially well done.

Visually, 'Final Destination 5' is atmospheric and stylish. The music is suitably eerie and the direction shows a grasp and understanding of the genre and the ability to breathe life and freshness to a formula that should have been fatigued by now. In the acting stakes, it fares favourably too.

On the whole, good fun. 7/10 Bethany Cox

intriguing

All 5 movies were intriguing and very interesting. It kept me guessing throughout each movie who would die next but I was never right on who would die. The only thing I could figure out was the character Bludworth. The way he shows up and gives them advise on how to cheat death. I knew that he had to be death himself as he knew their names with out them telling them their names and the way in the second movie how Claire seemed to know him? Makes you kind of wonder, doesn't it

How does this have a 62% on Rotten Tomatoes?

Survivors of a suspension-bridge collapse learn there's no way you can cheat Death. I'm really trying to understand how this film is rated higher than the previous four in Rotten Tomatoes it's basically the exact same sh*t people die in the most over the top ways that you can think of. A chick falls from the window, a dude gets crashed by a statue, people fall from a bridge and die, cars fall on their heads i mean common how can anyone find stuff like this funny and entertaining? Don't get me wrong it's your life and opinion and you can like anything you want but this film is predictable from the deaths to the over the top ending where everyone dies. The cgi are horrendous, the acting is bad, the plot is unknown and the characters are forgettable. This is only for fans of the Series personally the previous 4 films were kinda OK some of them were mediocre at best and others really awful but this one? Without a doubt it's the worst of the Franchise. (0/10)
