Final Destination 5

People die. Then they don't die. Then they die again by the most absurd means possible. There's a twist, which isn't a twist, because this is the fifth picture of the series. The end.

That's pretty much Final Destination 5. I will say in damning with fainting praise mode that the series is remarkably consistent. There might be a quarter star difference between Final Destination 1 and 5 but for the most part you know exactly what you are in for when you slip the DVD in. Honestly, I sort of dig the series. I enjoy the idea that death would go to all the trouble to kill someone with a can of coke, a feather, a toaster, and five fifths of gin. This version of death seems like the type of being that would get way too into model trains. Specially if it could blow them up at the end.

About the only difference in this version is that they tried for a bit more gore here in the deaths. They also hired David Koechner to add a bit more comedy to show. If they keep hiring more comedians I can see in the future people literally slipping on banana peels to their death.

Anyway, if you want to see something both gory and silly this isn't too bad.
