Jeremy of We Got This Covered wrote, "Death is at it again with the latest Final Destination film. Final Destination 5 marks the return of the popular horror series and with its return brings 3D, unique deaths and horrible dialogue. The series hasn't been known for its elaborate stories or intriguing characters and director Steven Quale understands that. With Final Destination 5 he attempts to recreate the suspenseful moments leading to the deaths and he also takes full advantage of the extra dimension with a constant flow of blood and body parts flying off the screen in every direction. Fans of the series will fall in the middle with this film because it does offer better kills than the previous two films, but it doesn't further the concept of cheating death."
