In the bridge sequence, the bus free falls with a passenger inside, who was initially in the back. The movie shows the man falling towards the front windshield during free fall, but in reality, the person would feel weightless, and float inside the bus, since both the person and bus were in free fall at the same time.

I had low expectations when I entered the theater to see the 5th installment of the FD series, because the 4th movie was such a disappointment. But after watching it, I was surprised.
First off,this movie was way,( and I mean), way better then the last two movies were. It was darker and had a lot of elements from the first movie, which I loved. I don't want to give away too much, but I do want to say that the last scene of the movie will leave you speechless. It had me thinking, "OMG, that was AMAZING how they came up with that twist."
One last thing I loved about this movie was that it was well planned out and thought of, unlike the forth movie which was a joke and in my opinion, shouldn't have never been made. The deaths weren't rushed as opposed to the deaths in the forth movie, and it gave more screen time to introduce us to the characters.
Note: I will say that there is one death scene in the movie that I didn't see coming, besides the ending.
I recommend you see this movie. It might have the same theme as the first four movies, but unlike the first four, it's on a much higher scale.
