FINAL DESTINATION 5 (as R as you can get mainly for ongoing graphic blood-letting & extremely violent death scenes): It began in 2000 with a disaster flick in which one character has a premonition of the fatal crash of a plane for Paris; gets off with some of his classmates, to be temporarily saved, but then are horribly killed off one after another to satisfy destiny. Same plot continued in a series leading to this #5, in which our seer saves himself & friends from a fatal crash on a collapsing bridge. No choice involved when destiny calls, and the fated group, one by one, are gouged, slashed, electrocuted, stabbed, disembodied - all in gory close-ups.
Eric Heisserer's story & director Steve Quale's combined efforts rely little on their frankly banal script, the pitifully amateurish acting done by a lesser cast, and they totally ignore the fact that each killing is accepted only by suspending belief in any logical reasons for one unique disaster after another. The point, dear friends, is to provide one devilishly grizzly accident after another, stringing them together with an embarrassingly inadequate (possibly satirically funny?) chain of causes, just to rub our noses in each pornographically disgusting death - and it stretches fatally on for 95-minutes to a concluding series of hideous examples of dozens of similar deaths lifted from the earlier movies. If your focus of interest is not on traditional Hitchcock-type horror, then these eye-gougings, garrotings, decapitations, slicings, piercings, char-broilings, crushings, smashings, & other forms of rollercoaster mayhems are for you.
