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.
It sticks to gimmicky scenes in which twentysomethings are dispatched in ingenious ways, but first-time director Steven Quayle delivers cheap fun that will keep fans happy.
A surprising infusion of energy and macabre humor reanimates this horror franchise.
The death sequences are fun; unfortunately, nearly everything in between is tedious and mechanical.
Director Steven Quale stages the death scenes with intermittently effective black humour to juice up a premise that, essentially, has all the suspense of watching the line at an abattoir.
Under the direction of James Cameron protegé Steven Quayle, the visual effects from Ariel Velasco Shaw (who has crafted mayhem on everything from 300 to Freddy vs. Jason) ensure that no industrial hook through a skull is left unimagined.
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.
