Consensus: It's still only for the gore-thirsty faithful, but Final Destination 5 represents a surprising return to form for the franchise.

Tom Russo
Boston Globe

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.

The death sequences are fun; unfortunately, nearly everything in between is tedious and mechanical.

Final Destination 5 won't be known for any stellar performances, but first-time feature director Steven Qualye can rest assured he scared the daylights out his audiences.

Time Out

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.

Liam Lacey
Globe and Mail

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.

The opening credits sequence is a work of mad genius. And then, unfortunately, the movie starts.

New Yorker

A surprising infusion of energy and macabre humor reanimates this horror franchise.

Entertainment Weekly

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.

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.'

A decent entry into the series, a step up from the 4th. I didn't get to see it in 3d but imagine it was pretty good. Very big opening scene, and plenty of… More

I am constantly amazed when I see folks knocking this series. Unlike me, they must have no sense of humor. For me, this series represents some of the greatest… More

Supposedly finished with the last movie, this is a decent whack at the original format. Although pretty much all the deaths were foretold in the trailer, there… More

Always been a fool for this series, and this fifth installment is no exception.

It's not often that the fifth entry in a series is one of the best efforts, but Final Destination 5 pulls it off. It's still mostly the same scenario… More
