It goes for a darker edge and leaves out the comedy of the previous instalments. This results in a lot more character development. A lot more for a Final Destination movie that is. The survivors seem to actually care about living, which at least gives us some connection as an audience. Unfortunately it lacks in the kills department. It sets up these elaborate death sequences on cartoon proportions, but decides to suddenly throw in something you didn't see coming. Usually this is something dull, like falling down or something falling on them. It kind of makes it an anticlimax. Again it tries to add a new rule to the franchise, where killing people adds their life to yours. Some kills are fun, but I actually stopped caring about how they were going to die. The only death that had me flinching was the gymnastic scene. The acting was fairly credible, but with so many deaths I still think people would act differently, possibly manic. Saw a little bit of this with the Christian Bale/Tom Cruise crossbreed guy. If you still want more after the last four, by all means you should see this.
