Final Destination 2 (DVD)
Locked away by her own choice in the perceived safety of a psychiatric hospital, the lone survivor from Final Destination lives in constant terror that Death is coming to claim her. She may be considered crazy, but she's not wrong. Death is moving toward suburban Route 23, heading south in Final Destination 2. Meanwhile, en route to a weekend getaway with her friends, Kimberly Corman (A.J. COOK) has a terrible premonition ... Shocked into action, Kimberly blocks traffic on a highway onramp. Drivers honk and complain--until Death tears up the highway in a massive pile-up, with those left on the onramp narrowly escaping with their lives. But Kimberly knows it's not over: Death won't be cheated so easily. Now this random group of strangers, who were all meant to die in the freeway disaster, must join Kimberly in a desperate attempt to stay alive.]]>

I remember seeing this movie very vividly. I had driven my friends to the theater so we could all watch this. We got a great audience that reacted with gasps and shocks and screams. The intro premonition set the tone of what was to come, and boy did this set the tone. Never before had anyone seen a car pileup in such horrific, and believable detail. That set piece alone should've won more awards.
I don't think anyone who's never seen this before will be able to view this introduction without looking away at some points. That's how visceral it was the first time watching. The rest of the movie is fun because everyone tries to figure out what will eventually kill a character. Will it be a pencil, some spaghetti, a tree branch falling on their head perhaps? The fact that there is no actual killer but Death itself means people could die in *any* way under any circumstance. I think that's what makes this series so fun.
When the movie ended, you have no idea how much I didn't want to drive at that point. You can bet I was really darn careful driving my friends and myself back home safely. For a thrilling ride, give it a watch today. Recommended.
That being said, the acting was probably on par with the first movie, and it was nice to see the continuation of more than just the theme by bringing back Clear Rivers. The gore ratio and variety was fine (about the same).. there were actually a couple of fairly original and tense scenes that surpassed similar films.
So I guess this one gets a four as well.. watching the first isn't necessary but might help if you're really trying to make solid movie night of it.
-- A log-hauler truck causes the deadliest highway pileup in the state's history and Kimberly foresees it at the on-ramp. She blocks traffic from merging onto the highway, effectively saving the lives of several people.
Like a Rube Goldberg machine, you watch the domino effect... waiting to see just what kills the victim, only to be pleasantly surprised by something altogether unrelated. I think you have to have a darker, more twisted sense of humor to truly appreciate the thought that is put into these elaborate death scenes and enjoy them for the entertainment it truly is. This is not my favorite movie in the franchise, but it does contain two of my top 5 "Best Deaths" from the franchise. Although a few of the deaths can be a bit brutal in nature, I view the franchise as horror-comedy.
I subtracted one star for the fact that although "death's design" is clearly outlined during the movie, it falters and deviates for no reason, taking one person completely out-of-turn. My husband, kids & I all debated the victim's death for almost 20 minutes with no sound reason or conclusion as to "why" they opted to do that. Yeah, I'll nitpick over that all day, but that really was the only negative thing I can say about the movie.
Tony Todd ("Candyman") returns to play the equally creepy crematorium / funeral home keeper. What a wonderfully terrifying addition to these movies (or maybe that's the leftover Candyman FEAR speaking). ;)
