Final Destination 5 Reviews

Georgia Straight

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.

when you finally get to the end of the film, it works in the context of the series and definitely tops the previous installment

Does clever writing a horror movie make? I think it does. And if you do too, then set your GPS for 'Final Destination 5,' one of the best of the dark-humored, grisly components in the franchise about people meeting their demise in bizarre ways .

Movie Metropolis

It's a neat, tidy, tightly wound little horror picture with a single-minded intent to startle you out of your seat while causing you to laugh immoderately.

we just like good-looking young people being killed off in inventive and gruesome ways! Death is a sick puppy . . . and so are we!

Reel Film Reviews

The end result is a better-than-average sequel that will surely thrill fans of the Final Destination movies, and it's ultimately difficult to recall a horror franchise that has fared as well (and remained as entertaining) as this.

If you don't mind repetition, love a brilliantly horrible death, and like having your peepers assaulted - FD5 could be the Friday night film of the year.

...had me holding my hands over my eyes for the first time since Natalie Portman did horrible things to her cuticles in Black Swan.

FD5 is a perfect example of what 3D ultimately does best, which is to make you squirm, shudder and jump in your seat. Enjoy.

It's a spectacle that requires a certain detachment and a strong stomach, but it's highly recommended.

As sick and sorry as some of the outcomes prove to be in FD5, there can be no denying there is often some wild imagination and genuine inspiration in play.

The best all-around installment of the series (since the original) with an opening sequence that just misses rivaling the intro to the #2 freeway pileup.

Ironically enough, it's the journey, not the destination, that makes these movies so damn fun.

I have to admit it appealed to my wanton inner child, though if asked to name my favourite premonition movie it would be Ealing Studios' classic Dead of Night.

Quale knows exactly how to toy with the expectations of his victims (and his viewers) before bringing down the fatal blow from an angle that no-one quite saw coming.What's more, he is not afraid to embrace 3D for the tawdry gimmick that it is

Final Destination 5 is a much-improved installment for the series on the heels of the terrible fourth film, The Final Destination, and an example of getting what you pay for in a suitably satisfying manner.

Works, and works well, thanks to some terrific droll humour and the best 3D to hit cinemas all year.
