Final Destination 5
We all share a common destination.
In this fifth installment, Death is just as omnipresent as ever, and is unleashed after one man’s premonition saves a group of coworkers from a terrifying suspension bridge collapse. But this group of unsuspecting souls was never supposed to survive, and, in a terrifying race against time, the ill-fated group frantically tries to discover a way to escape Death’s sinister agenda.
I think Death just died of boredom.
There is absolutely NO need to GO OVER ALL THE RULES FOR THE FIFTH FUCKING TIME!
Having a formula doesn’t mean you have to be formulaic. At least get the deaths right, there is perhaps one death scene that is somewhat creative.
I sincerely hope that the Slapstick Horror genre has reached its final destination.
'Final Destination 5' is the first of this franchise which I have seen the whole way through. I've caught some of the deaths from earlier films but it was immediately apparent from the incredible opening 'vision' that the filmmakers had gone all out to think of the most ridiculous, unexpected and often hilarious death scenes possible.
Almost everything about this film was crap, with the exception of the death scenes, for which this entire film was essentially a vehicle. The writers were really in their element when setting the scene before an inevitable fatality, with the familiar score and an establishing shot making it immediately clear that it was time for someone to die. The playful nature in which the…
Despite the obvious 3D whoring, and the laughable kills. It really isn't the worst out of the bunch.
The rules have changed, and they actually get a fighting chance for once. Plus, the link it provided to the whole franchise was done beautifully.
There's 5 films so far. 5 films where a bunch of Homo sapiens die creepy mysterious deaths. It's always a group of people who knows each other, and they've all recently been involved in freak accidents, but survived because one of them had a dream/vision/premonition/acid trip, and got everyone (or at least the ones that matters, right?) out in time.
There is no murderer attached to the deaths, and no motive. Is no one wondering what the hell is going on yet? Police? Government? Television? Military? MiB? Anyone?
It must be possibly to find someone curious enough to do something about it. Looking into it a little beyond just recognising that "Yep! It's happening. Derp"
By part five, the formula for the Final Destination series is pretty set in stone, but it's still a big improvement from the half-assed previous entry. The strong cinematography and effects work here are much appreciated - director Steven Quale had worked as an effects supervisor on James Cameron's films since The Abyss, and he clearly learned a lot about how to make even the most over-the-top effects convincing. The characters are still ciphers (though not as annoying as those in part four) and the series has long been nothing more than a showcase for gruesome setpieces, but when it's done with this much chutzpah, it's hard to complain. The final twist is particularly inspired, and it was fun to…
"2 billion people can't be Wong"
A pretty solid conclusion to a franchise which has basically regurgitated the same plot for 5 consecutive movies.
But you don't watch these films for the plot. You certainly don't watch them for the acting. While I wouldn't say this film suffers from the law of diminishing returns (it's considerably better than part 4), it still lacks the spunk from parts 1 through 3.
Unlike its predecessor, this film manages to ramp up the tension in a couple of places, even being bold enough to throw in a red herring very early on which took me by surprise.
The humour early on is actually well handled and the comedic timing is on-the-money too. Oddly…
fun, entertaining and some very nice deaths with a clever ending.
Loved the twist at the end.
Bueno, al menos intentaron hacer una conexión con una explicación interesante.
Final Destination 5 works because of its new and clever ideas, inventive and creative death scenes and a great twist ending that is unpredictable. Sure it has its bad acting and pretty bad script as well as some awful looking CGI blood but its a fun time, not the best in the series but its enjoyable.
Being the best of the Final Destination bunch may not be saying much, but the fifth installment at least has fun riding out a tired concept. If you've seen any of its predecessors, you'll see the plot and most of its twists coming from a mile away, but the death set-pieces here are presented with morbid humour that make them fun on top of being gruesome. It's cheesy, but it knows it. The whole 'take a life to gain yours back' mechanic was interesting, but not explored enough for my liking. The ending was clever though, and managed to put a nostalgic smile on my face
ranking in order of best to worst:
1. final destination 5. is a lot more serious than the preceding films
2. final destination 3. not terrible, but also still kind of terrible
3. final destination. mediocre. the establishing force. i used that word because death
4. final destination 2. mediocre.
5. final destination 4. what is this fucking abomination? no.
For a film that completely relies on the absurdity of it's deaths and it's ridiculous premise, there is a serious lack of imagination and creativity in the way it kills off it's annoying characters.
Sure, there is a good amount of inventive build up but everything else about this film is either off-putting or silly without really ever being fun or humorous.
Final Destination 5 is fucking bollocks, shit, fuck, bastard, bullshit and cunt.
