FD5 is an improvement on it's predessor, With better effects, better acting, new story.
Final destination 5 is what you expect it to be. A crazy amount of gore, same plot in every film, Bad acting kids, etc. But FD5 proves somthing else. This time, You can take someone elses life to keep yourself alive. When I heard about this, I really thought that was semi-genius. The production got a new writer hoping to break the critical reaction to the FD films. But he sure did.
The gore was really great. looked more real than it's predessor. Some deaths made me go. OHHH!!! Really cool effects. Some were rather disturbing, Others were plain fun. It's like watching real life version of TRU tv's most shocking. Super impressed with the gore. It may have the 3D gimmicks, But some stuff makes you blink when coming at you.
The acting was a definate improvement on it's predessor. The kids seemed more real. But you had the same type of people. The premonition main dude, The Tom Cruise look a like douchebag, The blonde chick, The hot chick, The fat nerd, The douchebag's anti-hot girlfriend, The Mos def look-a-like. Some of these characters you end up finding funny. Until DEATH! The cast of FD5 are people youv'e never heard of. I remember the Tom Cruise look-A-Like from Superhero Movie. But that's it. My favorit FD character is Ali Larter and That one dude who warns the kids about death in FD5. I just felt like the acting in this film was rather: decent.
The ending shocked me, You might already know, but if you wan to understand this ending, YOU HAVE TO SEE THE FIRST FILM. Please do to understand this ending. Dont need to see 2,3, or 4, but see 1. This film had much more twist, which i like very much. I really like the writing in this film. It's much diffrent from the predessors. I thought it was a fun time, Just short. See it when you have the time. B+
