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.

The deaths are just as gruesome and fun as ever, but the script's utter lack of originality drags things down quite a bit.

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

The performances are amateur (at best), the formula is predictable, and there's nothing scary going on here.

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 .

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.

Not even a tacked on surprise ending can save this mess.

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

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 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.

Final Destination 5 is moderately enjoyable splatter for those in an undemanding mood but never attains any real scares or resonant moments.

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