A trailer for the upcoming movie Final Destination 5 has been released and it looks as though producers have taking fan criticism onboard.
Many people have been complaining that the Final Destination series has gotten stale, seriously how many times can you make the same movie. The first too were great, because they had a link to each other, the third one introduced the photos which was a fun way to get the audience guessing, but the fourth just ditched the cleverness and went for 3D instead. The result was an overly bright example of how bad some actors are.
The trailer for Final Destination 5 shows that the franchise is going back to its roots. It’s darker and the deaths are less comical and more cringe worthy. The opening deaths are always one of my favourite parts. However, the writers try to make each opening better than the last and number three’s rollercoaster was hard to beat, four failed, but I think five might have succeeded.
Number five’s premonition takes place on a wire bridge. It doesn’t sound like much, but it looks great. There’s so much going on and so many characters to choose from, I’m already wondering who survives. Those that do survive will have a good chance of clinging on to their survivor status, because this movie will see the return of Bludworth (played by actor Tony Todd) who was last seen in Final Destination 2 and last heard in Final Destination 3. I was worried that he would appear for a few seconds, but from the trailer I can see he gives a whole speech to the survivors. I’m excited to see how they find him considering that all the survivors from the movies that featured him are dead.
Another good point about the trailer is that, and I could be wrong here, but it looks like the actors can act. I know I’m as shocked as you are. I never had a problem with the actors in the original trilogy, I hate to keep picking on it, but it was only four that I thought had really bad actors. Other people think the bad acting goes back furthered, but I think we can all hope that it ended with number four. We won’t really know until we see more though, but enjoy the trailer and let me know what you think by voting and leaving a comment below. Also don’t forget to subscribe.
