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 »

Final Destination 5 Goes Hard! No spoilers
18 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So first off, I was able to catch an early screening in Pierce County and went in with somewhat lukewarm expectations. With the cast, director, writer, and budget on board I felt it could be good but I had a lot more fun than anticipated. Opening scene was one of the more intense and crazy. (I'm a fan of the 2nd). Very much improved visual effects here. The 3D was executed better than the 4th as well. Character wise it was obvious they did better casting (Nicholas, Tony, Emma). I truly wanted some of these randoms to live. Deaths here are top notch, very blunt and very cringe worthy. This movie truly did improve on all aspects that the 3rd and 4th lacked...a creepy realistic feel. A few new aspects are thrown in as well which help keep the story fresh and not feel repetitive. If you are ready for this 3D roller-coaster then go see this well made guilty pleasure.
