    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    The cheap thrills wear off way fast, and we're left with atrocious acting, feeble writing and clueless directing (from first-timer Steven Quale). The horror! The horror! show more

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Final Destination 5 is irresistible, and the reason it's irresistible is that it speaks to us in the language we all understand, which is fear. show more

    Even by today's horror standards, Destination has some ghastly scenes. After seeing them, parents may want to reconsider letting their daughters try gymnastics or laser eye surgery. show more

    Philadelphia Inquirer

    Director Steven Quale is economical: He ditches plot altogether, delivering instead nothing but set pieces. He does come up with a few genuinely creepy moments of Hitchcockian edge-of-your-seat suspense and a few very inventive deaths. show more

    Quale has brought this anemic franchise back to life, with an unexpected infusion of humor and energy. show more

    To borrow from TV terminology, the series hasn't jumped the shark yet, but the strain of inventing bizarre deaths is beginning to show. show more

    Aside from the showy, overwrought credits sequence, it's silly and self-conscious and still scary as hell. show more

    If the series really does end here, may this final installment be hailed as a triumph of poetic justice. show more

    Final Destination 5, which, despite its lowbrow story, turns out to be one of the fastest-moving films of the year, is a suspenseful and macabre exercise in dread for the absurdly cosseted. show more

    They (fans) know what they enjoy. They don't want no damn movies with damn surprises. I am always pleased when moviegoers have a good time; perhaps they will return to a theater and someday see a good movie by accident, and it will start them thinking. show more

    One of the better Final Destinations. Although the acting was bad, the ending was really good. I was really surprised by the ending so I give it a 5 star rating just based on the ending and the 3D effects were very good.
