About standard but a nice way to wrap it up (if they do)

Final Destination, when it was first released in the year 2000, was my favourite film for a number of years, so I've made a point of seeing all of the sequels. Very few film series get this privilege on my part (Saw and Paranormal Activity are some of the few that come to mind for me). And if there's one thing I've learnt along the way from the Final Destination films, it's that there isn't a lot of areas to continue to be creative in. In fact for me the only interchangeable area is really how the characters die. And fortunately that's been enough to keep some of us coming back. So was Final Destination 5 inventive enough with the death scenes? Not in my opinion no. It all felt very 'seen it all before' and while they were able to shock us occasionally with the resulting method of death, there still wasn't enough surprise there. I think Final Destination 5 needs to be the last film in the series. And not just because it's all getting a bit stale, but also because it was a really good way to wrap it up. At the end of the film we are treated to a twist that the whole film was in fact a prequel to the first Final Destination. And no they didn't cheat, there were indeed hints to it throughout the film. This was a nice touch and would mean that the fourth film in the series 'The Final Destination' was actually still somewhat true to its title. A really great series that I will remember for a long time, I just hope it stops here.

Kill or be killed

While it was not a great or perfect film (particularly in the dialogue, ending and some of the acting), the first 'Final Destination' was entertaining and effective (especially with its terrific opening plane sequence and the creative deaths) with a fascinating idea done well. The bigger and bolder 'Final Destination 2' had its flaws but was just as good and perhaps the best of the four sequels. 'Final Destination 3' is just as big and bold, as well as gorier, and is also as good. 'The Final Destination' was however a big disappointment, easily the series' worst and to me the only bad film in the series. After wearing off and becoming stale in 'The Final Destination', despite the more of the same structure, 'Final Destination 5' shows the novelty returning and being refreshed and refined. It's as good as the previous three and a huge improvement over 'The Final Destination'. 'Final Destination 5' isn't perfect. The down-time and exposition between the deaths is turgid and clumsily written, saying very little interesting. Characters are as shallow as to be expected, the dialogue is just as flimsy and the effects look pretty cheap. However, the opening bridge scene is spectacular and perhaps the best opening of the series. The ending is also the series' cleverest, the only truly shocking one and the least illogical and contrived. The story has more time to develop and while it uses the time it does it in a way that makes everything as tight as possible. Really enjoyed the interesting new plot rule that allows the tension and thrills to register strongly. Standing out in particular are the deaths. They are very scary, very inventive in terms of being bold and elaborate and surprisingly witty. They are also quite gory, but not gratuitously so or in a way where it's overused and abused. The laser-eye surgery and acupuncture ones are especially well done. Visually, 'Final Destination 5' is atmospheric and stylish. The music is suitably eerie and the direction shows a grasp and understanding of the genre and the ability to breathe life and freshness to a formula that should have been fatigued by now. In the acting stakes, it fares favourably too. On the whole, good fun. 7/10 Bethany Cox

intriguing

All 5 movies were intriguing and very interesting. It kept me guessing throughout each movie who would die next but I was never right on who would die. The only thing I could figure out was the character Bludworth. The way he shows up and gives them advise on how to cheat death. I knew that he had to be death himself as he knew their names with out them telling them their names and the way in the second movie how Claire seemed to know him? Makes you kind of wonder, doesn't it
