Final Destination 5
Final Destination 5 starring Nicholas D'Agosto: DVD Cover A group of employees from Presage Paper prepares to go on a business retreat. Sam Lawton (Nicholas D'Agosto), who would rather be a chef than a salesman, has a fearful premonition while riding on the bus; a bridge collapses, killing dozens. Acting quickly, he saves his girlfriend Molly (Emma Bell), his boss (David Koechner), and five other co-workers. Unfortunately, since they were really supposed to die on the bridge, death begins stalking these survivors, one by one, killing them in "random" accidents. Can the survivors discover a way to break the chain?

The characters here are a bit more sympathetic, and humorous, and, unlike the fourth film in this successful series, they tend to show empathy for their fallen friends and co-workers. The death sequences, as always, are elaborate Rube Goldberg-like traps, with misdirection and deception at every turn. A lot of the traps involve loose screws, and it's fascinating that these sequences elicit a squirmy, giggly reaction from the audience, rather than dread or terror. This is a purely cathartic, visceral experience, not having anything to do with characters or plot. But other than that, any redeeming social value is negligible.

Final Destination 5 is the feature directorial debut of Steven Quale, who was a second-unit director on Avatar and also made the documentary Aliens of the Deep. The 3D effects are quite good, especially the smashing title sequence all of which make the film considerably better than its predecessors.
