Beside the impressive 3D gimmicks there's no reason to see the same scare tricks all over again for the fifth time // instagram: moviesmaniax
I guess to this point, the least disappointing thing about this film is the 3D. After four films and two spin-offs, it's clear now that this franchise needs to end and that cooking up the same scare tricks for the fifth time here just doesn't work anymore. While the trailer makes it look like it could take a fresh direction, it really isn't even though it manages to tie most unanswered questions up in this one but not in a surprising way enough to differentiate itself from the rest of the franchise. The SCARES here are all jumpy ones and if you are familiar with the franchise, there's nothing new or exciting to see here, except the 3D. The 3D here really brings the whole movie out to a new dimension with its unique depth as well as throw-in-your-face-scare and gimmick and it's a fun distraction to the typical slow-build story in the first half despite some horrible CGI effects toward the end. And as we all know, GORES are not the main selling point here so don't expect lots of that. Overall, this may still be a fun 3D horror film for those who haven't seen the franchise before, but for those who did, beside the impressive 3D gimmicks there's no reason to see the same scare tricks all over again for the fifth time.
