Final Destination 5 (2011)


“Death… doesn’t like to be cheated.” – Bludworth

Number of Times Seen – 1 (8 Mar 2021)

Brief Synopsis – After being saved from a deadly bridge collapse, a group of teens try to avoid the Angel of Death.

My Take on it – As someone who is not a fan of horror movies at all, I decided to watch this entire series just to see what it was all about.

My overall opinon is that the series is fine and some of them are much better than other, yet still worthwhile seeing what the series has to offer.

Final film in the series (so far) that is able to make things a bit more interesting that they were able to in the previous film.

This film actually has some familiar faces in the cast and that helps a bit in raising the level of suspense and tension along the way.

The special effects used for the opening tragedy scene are quite convincing and of the 5 disasters depicted in the series, this is the second most realistic one IMHO.

The added fact that this kind of tragedy is plausible also helps make things more engaging and thrilling to watch unfold along the way.

Like in all the films in the series, the characters aren’t developed at all, but that is useful in making them all seem like true horror film cannon fodder.

The story moves along in an intriguing fashion and they add some nice twists into things that helps make it all feel even more enjoyable to watch unfold.

This film also has some great philosophical debates about fate, destiny and death that work well within the context of it all.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Features the longest “opening disaster” out of all five films in the series. The bridge disaster lasts 4 minutes and 44 seconds. (From IMDB)

Rating – BAFTA Worthy (6/10)
