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.]]>

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). ;)
Plot: After a devastating car crash massacre the remaining survivors think there safe but one of them saw the crash before it actually happened.... and now as before they are starting to be killed one by one and the only one who can stop it is the one who sees each death and the crash before it occurred.... Her name is Kimberly Corman (A.J. Cook "Night Skies".) Who will survive at there Final Destination!
Review: This film was only slightly over decent! It is definitely better that parts 3 and 4 but it can't compare to the original in the originality concept.... In some aspects though the film is rather cheesy and the guy in the elevators Chewbacca scream isn't exactly the best acting I've seen out of this series! The deaths were good but the special effects were only decent! The soundtrack in my opinion was forgettable but this movie was far gorier than part one! It is definitely a Thriller/Chiller and some scenes will make the hairs on the back of your neck stick way up! I had a good time watching it and I bet you will to!
Acting: I didn't know that Chewbacca had a part in this movie.. Oh wait... it's just that guy in the elevator who is screaming because a woman has just been decapitated right in front of his eyes! Now that I have insulted that scene enough I must say that the film's acting isn't terrible but it could've been better especially the mothers reaction to her sons death at the end what can I say... I'm a cruel critic... but I do believe it could've been much more real!
Gore: a body chopped into three sections with a barbed wire fence, a decapitation, some burnt/burning bodies, a ladder impaled into someone's eye, a body crushed by a giant glass pane, a head impaled on a spike, a severed arm and some more! Wicked fun, wicked graphic, wicked wickedness!
Bottom Line: A good buttery popcorn flick! It does lack some much needed aspects majorly a more original plot and story... but in the end it works!
Rated: "R" for strong violent/gruesome accidents, language, drug content and some nudity
