All Movie Guide
When your number is up, just go with it. If there is anything to be learned from the Final Destination series, it's that piece of advice. Surviving a disaster of epic proportions (think plane crashes, mass freeway accidents, and rollercoaster derailment) puts Death in a bad mood. Make no mistake: a pissy Death is a mean Death. Luckily for audiences, the more cruelly Death snuffs out his victims, the better the film -- a fact that wasn't lost on director Steven Quale. Whether by impalement, a highly unlikely chain of electrical failures, or an acupuncture session gone horribly awry, Final Destination 5 delivers the gruesome goods. The fifth movie in the Final Destination series begins on a slightly different note than its predecessors; rather than a new crop of hapless yet attractive teens, the unfortunately fated few are made up of a group of slightly less hapless, equally attractive young adults. While on their way to a work-related weekend retreat, Sam (Heroes' Nicholas D'Agosto) is able to save seven of his friends from a grisly end after having a startlingly realistic premonition, which would come to fruition only moments later. Among the mostly temporarily living are Sam's on-again, off-again girlfriend (Emma Bell), the office lothario (P.J. Byrne), and David Koechner (The Office) in the role of their less-than-likable boss. Of the cannon fodder, these actors deliver surprisingly effective performances given the material they had to work with. Tom Cruise look-alike Miles Fisher is passable, though little more, as Sam's morally challenged best friend. The film also offers a new and unexpected twist: this time around, Death appears to be willing to bargain. If a survivor is able to kill another human being, Death may be appeased and allow the killer to live out the lifespan of the individual he killed (Tony Todd of Candyman fame is the deliverer of this particular blow). Though it hardly qualifies as thought-provoking (thank goodness for that; this isn't a think piece and doesn't pretend otherwise), Fisher, Bell, and D'Agosto usher in this new development with a tense discussion of how one determines who deserves to die or go on living. Should Final Destination 5 prove to be the last film in the franchise, it will have gone out with a spectacular bang. The ending sequence is a delightfully self-conscious shout-out to the "lucky" survivors of yesteryear, showing, if nothing else, that no one knows how to punish a cheater quite like Death.

this could be the best FD movie no you still can't cheat death no matter how hard you try so if they all died on the bridge then none of this would happen just like in all the other FD movies you can't chaet death . My mother and i seen this movie at the theaters and we loved it.

death does NOT like to be cheated... but in Final Destination 5, Sam Lawton trys when he has a vision. on their way to a company retreat an upcoming bridge will collapse and everyone will die, but when Sam stops the bus and saves everyone, death starts to come after them. one by one. will they survive or will death find them before they can try to stop it... again? this movie is full of special effect scenes. some of them are when the bridge is collapsing. also when the plane blows up in the end. there were lots of blood, people being ripped apart, and burned to death. i love these kind of effect because to me i find them sort of funny i would give the special effect a sold 3 out of 5. they just make the movie better and more interesting. the characters also made the movie ten times better. with all the emotions they portray, the anger, the sadness, the fear. especially when they find out that in order to live they have to kill someone. there was confusion, more anger, and disbelief. also when Peter Friedkin was trying to kill Molly Harper because her boyfriend Sam saved her in his vision. in that scene there was very intense anger and fear. overall this movie is an 8 out of 10 because of all the special effects and the emotion from the characters. but do remember death doesn't like to be cheated so when u think you've won watch you back!
