Final Destination 5 Theatrical Review

By John Delia, Aug 11, 2011 06:57 PM EST
Shattering, piercing, gut wrenching, queasy, bloody, gouging, bone breaking, mind blowing, and yet mesmerizing that's what Final Destination 5 is all about, especially in 3D.  This is one of those select few films that use 3 Dimension well and it will blow your mind.  If you have never seen a Final Destination movie or are a big fan of the guts and gore they deliver, then rush to see Final Destination 5, but do not go over a bridge on your way.
 
The premise behind all 5 of the Final Destinations is that you cannot cheat death.  In the first film 8 students get off an airplane as one of them sees a vision that it is going to crash.  One by one the students find that life is an elusive commodity. The next three sequels feature a horrifying highway wreck, a roller coaster ride gone wrong and a car that explodes into the stands at a racetrack.
 
But this Final Destination features something only in nightmares, a bridge coming apart with bumper-to-bumper traffic.  Here novice Director Steven Quale puts engineering to the test as he rips his bridge to shreds hundreds of feet above a river.  Buses, cars, people falling dismembered and, well you get the idea. The images are so real that they had me gasping for air, gripping my seat and in some cases groaning audibly. If you have a fear of heights, then this film may trigger the malady, as the 3D effects are amazingly realistic.
 
The special effects, make-up, computer graphics imaging and motion capture are amazing and the real stars of the film.  The opening credits have so much coming at you that it startles.  If you have seen the first four films then you will find most of the weapons of death used in those flicks popping into view.
 
The acting in Final Destination 5 comes in above average with some performances exceptionally good especially Jacqueline MacInnes-Wood as the arrogant Olivia Castle who you lean to love to hate for her snotty selfishness.  When her time comes to meet her maker the ‘eyes' have it.
 
The film is rated R for strong violent/gruesome accidents, and some language.  If gore makes you ill you may want to stay away from this gross-out.
