At the spa, just before the needles are put on to Isaac, he jokes with the masseur saying, "All right, Let's do this! Two billion people cannot be wong" Apart from being a pun, it could also be a tribute to Final Destination's first part director, James Wong. See more »
The LASIK machine would never do what's shown in the film. In fact, once the eyes look away from the green tracking laser, the machine should automatically shut off. The patient is instructed to always stare at the green laser while the red one does the work. Once eyes are diverted, it's designed to shut off. See more »
Yeah, that's a bummer about Candice. Guess we all should have seen that coming.

What? You see the crazy shit those gymnasts do. I'm surprised it doesn't happen more often.

The opening credits show various objects smashing through glass panels, such as kitchen knives, fire escape ladder, Logs, Coaster pieces, etc which are reference to all the deaths (including the premonitions) from the first 4 Final Destination installments. See more »
I really loved the opening credits of this film. It introduces the killers of the series. Random objects are the true killers of the these movies. They jump out of the screen and shows us how dangerous they are. Even the most innocent objects can be dangerous. The mysteriousness of the intro is obvious and it became intense when a dead corpse flies out of the screen then random blood splatters the broken glass. The film itself is a remake of the last four films. They added some new rules here but it doesn't change anything. At least this is better than the fourth one but in the end, this is just another sequel(or remake).
Here's the thing about Final Destination. It's an intriguing high concept horror movie. But after the second film, they decided to repeat all the things from the first movie and make the deaths more gory than ever. They added new things here like the "Kill or Be Killed" concept. It's pretty interesting but it doesn't make any changes. That concept just made the climax more psychological and create some twists. Like I say, this is just another Final Destination sequel.
If you're a fan of the film then you might enjoy it by its silly death scenes. Yep, the 3D use is gimmicky. Dangerous stuff, even the ones that aren't dangerous jumps out of the screen. Blood and gore throughout. See how fragile these people are. Here's the big problem, The film points at Molly as the important character of the film but she is really/very bland among all of them.
Final Destination 5 is just another Final Destination movie. Told some new rules but still no changes. The twist in the end reveals something intriguing but after that, it became pointless. This series means nothing but to show how dumb gory violence can happen by random accidents and little objects. The movie itself will make you unsatisfied but if you are seeing this for the stupid gory violence then this repetitive sequel is your satisfactory. Kind of.
