***One of the best of the franchise, if not THE best***
The first “Final Destination” movie in 2000 was a rather innovative ‘Dead Teenager Movie’ in that the killer was Death itself, an invisible spirit. A group of people, mostly youths, escape a great tragedy due to a premonition of one of them and the rest of the movie involves the Grim Reaper systematically slaying the kids who cheated Death in various creative ways, usually an unlikely chain of events. The opening tragedy in the first film was a plane crash, in the second a highway pile-up, in the third a rollercoaster mishap, in the fourth a racetrack calamity. In this fifth and most recent film (2011) it’s a spectacular bridge collapse and it’s probably the best opening tragedy of the franchise.
All of the movies in the series tell the same basic story with different characters and minor nuances; all of them are of the same high quality of technical filmmaking. Whether you prefer one or another depends on your preference for cast members and the death sequences (and the locations). Other than these factors they’re all basically the same.
“Final Destination 5” features Nicholas D’Agosto as the main protagonist with Emma Bell as his blonde girlfriend. Tom Cruise lookalike, Miles Fisher, is also on hand while Ellen Wroe plays the gymnast. Meanwhile Tony Todd returns as the creepy coroner who seems to know more about the situation than he should.
While it’s true that you know exactly how this film will play out if you’ve seen the first four installments, or any of them, there are some highlights beyond the females. For one, this movie has a superb score and soundtrack, at least on par with the previous installment. Aside from featuring the most thrilling opening tragedy, there are several creative death scenes involving a gymnast accident, an Asian spa, eye surgery, a factory mishap and a restaurant altercation. This entry also throws in a unique twist that I’m not going to give away (but if you’ve seen the trailer you already know what it is). There’s an additional surprise at the end, which nicely wraps up the five-movie franchise.
The film runs 92 minutes and, like the first three films, was shot in the Vancouver area (the fourth film was shot in the East).
You spin me right round baby right round like a record baby.
Hee, no surprise to find great division among horror fanatics, whatever the film or franchise, hot debate – even furious anger – can be found. FD5 has unsurprisingly garnered mixed reactions, but even allowing for the fact that as an idea it’s a series that can’t get better, part 5 is a considerable step up from the very poor part 4. It also boasts a neat trick of the tail, where some ingenuity is used to bring the series full circle, with a glint in the eye and a bloody tongue in the cheek.
Once again the opening and closing credit sequences are superb, doffing its cap to what is undoubtedly a very popular horror franchise. The disaster that underpins the formula is one of the best to be staged, a mighty bridge collapse that terrifies and thrills in equal measure. Then of course it’s same old same old, which you would think anyone venturing into watch would expect anyway. Acting is as usual mixed, but the deaths are up to the ingenious standard set throughout all the other films, and then a narrative twist at the finale arrives to seal the deal for a rollicking good time. We even get a welcome return of Tony Todd – Bonus! If it proves to be the final Final Destination then it’s a fitting closure, because there is thought here. Anyone taking on another will have to come up with a whole new idea to appease the horror hordes.
Enough Now. 7.5/10
The Best Sequel Yet!
Most likely, you’re not reading this unless you’re a fan and already plan to see the film. And if you are, then know that my review is based on my fandom and in relation to the series itself. Therefore, it will be in the context of horror films, slasher films, and more importantly, the series itself. With that out of the way, who would have though the fifth film would be the one. Ever since the original, the series has sort of meandered around, trying to recapture the initial wonder of death playing the part of a slasher and killing off a group of people.
Yes, Final Destination 5 is truly the best sequel since the first. There hasn’t been this much tension and creativity since the original, and practically every scene is filled with an uncomfortable level of anxiety. This is what the film has truly been missing, whether spoiled by the trailers before it or just a lack of creativity. For the most part, Final Destination 3 and 4 (TFD) lacked the necessary level of creativity and menace that was present in the first film, and even in the second. However, we have plenty of that here and a few nice twists as well. While the kills are also pretty ridiculous, most are plausible and, unlike TFD, should please fans with their level of gore and brutality.
The filmmaking qualities here reach above the standard the film has set. It looks great, with plenty of swift and enticing editing that will make your skin crawl with anticipation. The acting, while still not of any award winning caliber, or even really all that great, is decent enough here. The portrayals are more realistic this time around. While the film had though to settle into the I-found-the-answers-on-the-internet routine, here we have a smooth flow in which characters sort of lose their mind trying to figure things out. And while some might have called the main couple’s relationship cringe worthy, I actually found it to be quite well played out as the couple has real issues they work through on top of everything that’s going on. Suffice to say, it’s nice to see the FD series making better attempts at developing it’s characters. Still not great, but better.
With that said, this is Final Destination, and problems persist. Despite better attempts at character development, the majority still play fodder for death’s machinations. Sure, we learn a little about them, but it’s not any more than the bare minimum: this guys a jerk, that girls wild, etc etc. There is also one kill, in particular, that, while brutal, defies logic. Sure, it’s FD, but there is a certain point of ridiculousness where the line is drawn. The characters trying to figure out what’s going on is also getting old. There’s certainly a reason here, which I won’t spoil, why our characters don’t know about what is happening in the same way characters from previous films know. But this leads to the problem of it being explained too quickly. This might contradict what I said above, but what I mean is that Tony Todd’s character if far too quick to reveal information and the new twist. In comparison to FD1, where things had a slow, natural pacing, here we get a couple death scenes, and explanation, and then more death scenes. The progression is better, but still not as good as the first two films.
Fans will truly enjoy this solid sequel. There are a couple twists, and the final scene will blow everyone away. It’s beyond what you would expect, and very nearly worth seeing the film alone. But with a handful of creative and brutal twists and a decently put together film, this should certainly warrant a decent box office and, maybe unfortunately, another sequel or two.
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.
