Final Destination 5
In Final Destination 5, 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. -- (C) Warner Bros

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Tom Russo, Boston Globe
"The death sequences are fun; unfortunately, nearly everything in between is tedious and mechanical."
‑ Eric D. Snider,
"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.'"
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"The deaths are just as gruesome and fun as ever, but the script's utter lack of originality drags things down quite a bit."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"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 ."
‑ Linda Cook, KWQC-TV (Iowa)
"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."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"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."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"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."
‑ Ben Kendrick, ScreenRant
"when you finally get to the end of the film, it works in the context of the series and definitely tops the previous installment"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"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."
‑ John J. Puccio, Movie Metropolis
"A surprising infusion of energy and macabre humor reanimates this horror franchise."
‑ Bruce Diones, New Yorker
"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."
‑ Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"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."
‑ Ali Gray,
"The performances are amateur (at best), the formula is predictable, and there's nothing scary going on here."
‑ Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
"Not even a tacked on surprise ending can save this mess."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
