Critic Reviews for Final Destination 5
Stabs at the dramatic don't amount to anything that makes us care, even for Bell, who has been solid on AMC's The Walking Dead and in the chairlift chiller Frozen.
The opening credits sequence is a work of mad genius. And then, unfortunately, the movie starts.
Though not a great horror film by any means, Final Destination 5 succeeds as a comedic splatter fest solely by sticking to Stephen King's old motto: 'If in doubt, gross 'em out.'
Final Destination 5 benefits from smart 3D, but even in 2D, the set-pieces will satisfy -- presenting some of the most outrageous kill sequences in franchise history.
It's testament to the 2000 original that there's still so much mileage left in the 'death is coming for you' concept 11 years later.
Audience Reviews for Final Destination 5
Funnily enough, I didn't hate this. I am still not sure why...
I am constantly amazed when I see folks knocking this series. Unlike me, they must have no sense of humor. For me, this series represents some of the greatest comedies ever made. Even if I've seen one of them before, I still love to watch the build up to the way in which the next victim will meet his/her demise, and when it happens, I roar with laughter -- even after multiple viewings. Now that's my definition of a good movie. This one actually is one of the funnier ones, and the effects continue in their groundbreaking fashion. The freaky death of the gymnast, that final positon on the mat, hilarious, I kid you not. Seriously, for good laughs, you must watch this series. When you think about it, these are kind of an extension of 1000 Ways To Die. I look forward to the next installment with great anticipation.
Always been a fool for this series, and this fifth installment is no exception.
