Final Destination 5

Continuity mistake: During the bridge collapse scene, when Olivia is crawling on the beam, she is first seen on the part of the beam that is closer to Sam. Almost instantly afterwards, she is on the part of the them that is closer to Molly. The space between the two beams increases significantly between the two shots as well.


Continuity mistake: In the premonition right near the end, you see the truck hanging over the bridge and that is how the poles and that sheet of metal kill two of the main characters. Yet when they run to the end of the bridge, the truck is not hanging over the edge.

Continuity mistake: When the bus is falling into the river, some items fall down on to the window with Issac. However the camera cuts and the items have disappeared. (00:13:40)

Factual error: In Sam's premonition, when Isaac is still in the bus when it is falling down to the water, he is at the front of the bus. In reality the falling force should be pushing him to the back of the bus.

Continuity mistake: When Molly parks her car right at the start of the film, she parks and then the camera cuts to the two guys talking who walks over to Molly. When he walks over she parks her car again. (00:04:00)

William Bludworth: Death... doesn't like to be cheated.

Trivia: Roy's racecar in the photos of him on the bar at the end is the same car that causes the crash in FD4 - you can see it in the end credits rerun of prior film scenes.

Suggested correction: While it is the same vehicle from the previous film, it is not Roy's racecar. He is a plant worker and merely posing with the same car as a fan.

Which would still make it a trivia connection.

More trivia for Final Destination 5

Question: Bludworth states that he's, "Seen this before" referring to Death's Design. If the bridge incident takes place before Flight 180, and is the first, then how would he have seen it before? And why is the bridge incident not mentioned in the first film if it took place only two weeks earlier?

Answer: To answer your first question, Bludworth does in fact mention he has "seen this before", but this means he could have seen these events before the film series ever took place. It is possible that this is where he had learned a lot about death's design. This could even hint at another sequel/prequel. To answer your second question, none of the survivors had been alive to tell the tale of what happened to the survivors of the bridge collapse. In the first few movies, it is noted that the protagonist freaks out, thus, startling MANY people. In the 5th film, Sam is only seen freaking out inside the bus. Even if the FBI have the information, they could have finished the investigation completely, due to Sam, Molly, and Nathan surviving (Until the end of the movie, that is).
