Like Final Destination before it, this is a more creative horror film. It's not a hack and slash, but more a dark comedy of sorts. The fun of this film comes not from the events leading to death, but death itself. Luckily there's a large cast and the inbetween time is quite enjoyable.
The scene that puts this movie over the top however, comes right at the start. Just like FD's plane explosion, it sets the pace for the entire movie. FD2's highway scene is simply an amazing event. It's jaw dropping, it's gruesome, and it's fun.
They thankfully went for a strong R rating, and didn't shy away from getting really gruesome. They also threw in biker babe who briefly flashes early in the film, which probably should have been left out. Otherwise though, the suspense to gore ratio is just about right.
Any fan of the horror/thriller genre should get quite a kick out of this offering. And to those who don't - LIGHTEN UP!!
The biggest surprise to me was the level of twisted humor that I found in this gory story. I was also entertained by the fact that I was never completely prepared for how people died or were killed. (Just one spoiler, be careful who you save, because you never know when flying barbwire will slice you into various thirds.)
It was interesting to hear that this movie followed the same formula as the first, because I do not usually enjoy seeing that type of predictability but there is always the exception to rules. (Again, see my opening paragraph.)
The delivery of this story was effective, if gruesome, and I enjoyed the performances that this cast provided. Not to provide an spoiler, but I must say that the ending made me jump and groan at the same time. (BBQ anybody?)
On to the extras, this is an Infinifilm Edition, and I have a personal bias for these productions. They provide a TON of extra features, and I really enjoy using the Infini feature to see where deleted scenes came from in the film, discovering bits of trivia and hearing interview clips based on certain scenes, but I also like the fact that I have the choice to watch it interactively or seperately in its entirety. (I haven't finished watching all of them, but I like to prolong the experience over repeated viewings or days when I just need some short bursts of entertainment.)
Overall, I would say that the DVD deserves a "B+" for the film, and an "A+" for the disc and features. (I would also say that fans of the "Scream" triology or the "Nightmare on Elm Street" series would enjoy this film.)

I like FD2 better than FD1.
Too much macho overacting in FD1.
