You should know the story by now. Premonition. A kid saves his friends from death. Death still wants their souls and starts picking them off one by one. But what does this one do that's new?
Survivors of a suspension-bridge collapse learn there's no way you can cheat Death.
Who's In It
Nicholas D'Agosto - (who?) the premonition kid
A bunch of other no name kids, not worth mentioning
Tony Todd! The Candyman!
What I Thought
So what does this one do that's new? Well if the formula ain't broke, don't try to fix it.
Rather than do a review I thought I'd focus on the death scenes - most of which I thought were weak - and play on any irrational fears you may have.
Don't watch this movie if you:
- Planning any trips over bridges
- Are a gymnast
- Work with steaming containers of tar
- Are planning to have Chinese acupuncture
- Are planning on having corrective laser eye surgery
- Work in a factory with large industrial crane hooks
- Work with large hand tools like spanners
I did think the ending has a nice twist with a clever nod to a previous movie in the series.
And also, be sure to keep watching after the movie has finished as you'll be treated to a montage on deaths from the previous four movies, one bloody scene after the other.
- "Do you come with sub titles?"
- "2 billion people can't be Wong. I said Wong. Do you follow me."
- "How's your French?"
2/5 - For fans of the series
You can see preludes to some of the deaths I mention above
