Our Score: 4.5 out of 5 stars

This film is simply the best in the series. If you have seen one “Final Destination”, you know what to except from this film. The last film in the series was titled “The Final Destination” but it kicked started the series and especially since it was in 3D. This film does follow a similar path but the death scenes are the best by far, the 3D is beyond cool and it takes the series in a new direction. Sit back get ready to cover those eyes, laugh, scream and enjoy the hell out of this movie.

The story is similar than its predecessors, Sam Lawton, (Nicholas D’Agosto) and he co-workers are heading on a retreat for work and he has a premonition that the suspension bridge they are on will collapse. As the vision becomes reality, Sam and his friends that maybe they shouldn’t have survive. They start getting picked off one by one in the order that they died in the premonition. They need to find a way to cheat death and survive.

The film stars Nicholas D’Agosto, Emma Bell, Miles Fisher, Arlen Escarpeta, David Koechner, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood, Ellen Wroe, P.J. Byrne, Courtney B. Vance and Tony Todd. I have had the chance to interview quite of few of the cast and I have heard some really great stories about this film and how much fun it was to work on. What is great about this cast is that it has a little bit of comedy spread through it, so the film is laced with a nice combination of horror and comedy. Because if you don’t by know this series like to have fun with it death scenes and make you both laugh and scream at the same time.

So even though “The Final Destination” was in 3D, this film takes it to a whole new level right from the opening credits. You had people jumping and screaming throughout the film. I haven’t been in a theater in a long time when the audience reacted the way that they did for this. The death scenes were so well planned and over the top like always but nothing was predictable this time around. Every horror fan should see this film and especially if you are a fan of the series. It is hard to believe that a franchise that is entering its fifth film in the series could have this much steam left…but hey look at “The Fast and the Furious” series.
