Storyline:

Death may be closer than it appears. Voluntarily locked away in the perceived safety of a psychiatric hospital, the lone survivor from “Final Destination” lives in constant fear that Death is coming to claim her. She may be considered crazy, but she is also right. 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 has a terrible premonition. Shocked into action, Kimberly blocks traffic on a highway on-ramp. Drivers honk and complain, until death tears up the highway in a massive pile-up, with those left on the on-ramp 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.

One review

  • The first “Final Destination” took the time to follow teen horror flick conventions, to develop characters -as thin as they were- and to throw in some theories about why all these people were dying. In the second movie, all these time-fillers are skipped… Poorly written and lacking originality in my opinion. Unfortunately with more and more deaths, each death has less impact. We don’t know nor care for the characters, and there is less build up to each death. Here, the characters spend too long looking for clues with no real way of stopping the deaths thus making the whole vision thing rather redundant. But there were some good points too. The opening disaster was fantastic, I love the stuntwork and the effects. There are some funny moments. And it at least seemed like they were trying really hard to make this a good sequel. Overall, this sequel was very enjoyable but not a patch on the original.
