Final Destination 5 (2011)
Director: Steven Quale
Main Stars: Nicholas D’Agosto, Emma Bell, Arlen Escarpeta, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood, Miles Fisher
Storyline: Someone has a vision of a bridge collapse and cheats death with his fellow friends and co-workers. Death feels cheated and wants revenge.
Review (Spoils): We are at number 5 with this series and the storyline is about the same. Someone has a vision and freaks out and escapes death and then death hunts them down in order with accidents. This time the opening is a bridge accident in which it collapses and people tumble to their death. Yes the opening was cool but they really need to stay away from the cheesy CGI effects (some of the effects were bad during this scene). We have such classics of the film such as impaling, burning flesh, bad eye surgery (Jacqueline MacInnes Wood) she’s a babe, gun shots and even a good ol’ mechanical hook through the face. The storyline is the same as the other movies but that is not a surprise but some of the kills are unique and different. The ending of the film was nice touch as it brings you back around to the first film. I just wish they would watch the CGI and make sure it is done right on all deaths.
Rating: This series is fun and that’s what it is suppose to be. Yes it has to come to an end and if this is really the last one they did it right. Love the AC/DC “If You Want Blood” sequence as they go through the best of. That alone is worth the drinking too.
