Rated R
Running time: 92 minutes

Overall Score: 3.5 out of 5 stars

Before I even start, this film is meant to be viewed in 3D and it is really the only way I prefer it. I would have given this disc a 5/5 stars if it was in 3D, especially since it has some decent bonus features. The film itself honestly the best in the whole “Final Destination” series. If you know the series then you know how this film’s main goal is provide shocking and kick-ass death scenes (and they looked the best in 3D). The 2D Blu-ray still looks amazing and the film is still major kick-ass. The video is very sharp…most importantly the kills still looks cool. The film also has some pretty intense moments and the DTS-HD Master Audio is really clear and works well wit the action scenes.

This release contains a two-disc combo pack featuring the high-definition Blu-ray and the DVD. The first extra is called “Final Destination 5: Circle of Death, Your Final Destination,” which is a five-minute featurette which connects each film in the series. Next up is about fifteen minutes of  alternate death scenes, which features some pretty cool ideas.   I really enjoyed the extra “Visual Effects of Death” and the “Collapsing Bridge” sections as well. Lastly, I have really been enjoying the new way for the studios to include digital copy with UltraViolet Digital Copy on Flixster!  You are able to watch on computers, tablets or smartphones.  It is the future of digital copies and instead of wasting a disc you can stream your film right from your Flixster account.

Synopsis: In “Final Destination 5,” Death is just as omnipresent as ever, first revealing its menacing reality to a group of coworkers headed for a corporate retreat. During the bus ride, Sam (Nicholas D’Agosto) has a premonition in which he and most of his friends, as well as numerous others, die in a horrific bridge collapse. When his vision ends, events begin to mirror what he had seen, and he frantically ushers as many of his colleagues?including his friend, Peter (Miles Fisher), and girlfriend, Molly (Emma Bell)?away from the disaster before Death can claim them. But these unsuspecting souls were never supposed to survive and, in a terrifying race against time, the ill-fated group tries to discover a way to escape Death’s sinister agenda. No matter where you run, no matter where you hide…you can’t cheat death. Or can you?
