Micro Review: Final Destination 5

I'm an unashamed fan of the Final Destination series. Like the original run of Friday the 13th films, these movies are all about death and how death rolls. The formula is the same with each film, but it's the way the carnage plays out that makes them fun and highly entertaining. The fourth entry is the weakest link, so it's nice to see the fifth installment return to the series's glory. There's a great opening sequence on a bridge and the final thrill is a great one that brings the series full circle. The acting doesn't matter here, it's the effects and the kills that are the true stars, and they shine! And yes, the Tom Cruise lookalike does die . . . twice! That's Good for me.
