I saw this movie about a month ago at the test screening, and I must say that, in my opinion, this is the most brutal, the most gruesome, and the most clever movie of the entire franchise. It has many well-thought out death scenes, and one death scene in the movie made me cringe and look away, and trust me, I watched A LOT of slasher/gornography films. One of the most famous scene is the lasik surgery which I thought was pretty good. I'm not going to spoil it for you.
First off, this movie has a very interesting plotline. As you heard from the trailer, you know the new death rule, and I think it is pretty clever. But, why didn't Bludworth tell it to the others? Hmmm...?
Second of all, the characters are very very relatable. You can actually tell if one hates the other, and one is friends with the other for a long time. Also, you can actually feel bad for a character when he/she gets hurt or dies. The acting is very impressive, hence the proffesional and experienced actors. I think this is one of the reasons why this movie made it to my highest rank of the "Final Destination" franchise.
Third, what is this franchise famous of? Exactly, the unique death scenes that happens from the materials/places we see/go to everyday. There are some death scenes here that are very gruesome that if I picture it, I either cringe or smile on how good the death scenes are. One death scene made it to my top 15 most brutal death scenes I have ever seen. Some of you might know it, some of you might not. One thing for sure is, you will know it when you see the movie in August.
Lastly, the ending of the whole movie.Read more ›
I felt like the 3D effects were awesome and effective. Not only did many of the (gruesome and gory) deaths utilize the 3D effect well, many scenes in the movie - whether it was a transition scene or just a scene with the characters speaking - used the effect too, creating moments of depth with people and objects. There were also moments in which objects flew or poked out of the screen (for all of you that want that effect). :D
Overall, I really enjoyed this movie, and I would recommend purchasing it, however, not from Amazon.com. This is currently being sold at Best Buy for around 25 bucks, so I would definitely go there. Also, I used my VIZIO passive 3D set with some RealD glasses to watch the movie and the effect was fantastic. I feel like the effects look crisper and cleaner on a passive 3D screen, though that may not be true for everyone.
I really think that 5, while clearly more intelligent, psychological, and well-written and acted than any of the others, bar none, still lacks what I thought made 2, which is IMO the best in the whole series, stand out: Suspense, brutality, and of course, Clear Rivers, the only person to survive the original FD, but not unscathed, to say the least.
See, 5's deaths are just not all that interesting. When you compare them to what happened in the far more brutal 2 and 3, they just aren't as interesting. I didn't find any of them particularly memorable (except the very last, of course, which is a huge WHAM of an ending that you might even see coming from a few hints in the beginning), and I can't agree that the eye surgery scene was that gruesome. Yes, we get Bludworth again, and this time his role really means something. We also get another suspicious cop who thinks the whole thing is screwed up (which, if you don't know the ending of this one, you can't understand why he doesn't sympathize like the other cop in FD2), and the film seems to take itself seriously for once.
Like video game exploits that are patched up after release, the FD series seems to add some new mechanic that can potentially foil Death's plan. This time, though, that *really* makes for a killer ending. (As they say, love makes you crazy...especially when you're doomed to die, anyway.Read more ›
