Just the fact that it manages to keep the viewer involved despite the plot's general ridiculousness makes it the most effective Vancouver-shot horror flick in years.

Now that the ground rules have been established for the Final Destination movies, the fun lies in seeing the inventive ways in which the writers dispatch the various characters in the sequel.

Decent at best this is a lighter, campier, but gorier sequel to the original.

Even more than Part 1, the real stars of this movie are the elegantly choreographed freak accidents.

One by one these people get bumped off, one by one the people in the audience laugh their asses off.

Albert Einstein... noted, 'God does not play dice with the universe.' [T]he makers of... Final Destination... have... decided that Death likes to play Mouse Trap.

Perhaps you can't cheat death in Final Destination 2, but apparently you can kill originality.

'Make no mistake, without the slicing, dicing, filleting, and pureeing, this flick is a recipe for boredom. But like its predecessor, I was expecting a bloodless teen snorefest and got something several sanguineous degrees better!'

Gets more convoluted and thus less involving as it goes along.

It's filled with scenes laden with irony and coincidence that the audience can anticipate and snicker at with just a bit of nervousness.

Premonição 2 certamente não é tão tenso quanto seu predecessor, embora seja igualmente divertido.

Fully aware that this is a rehash of what was supposed to be a one-trick pony, the filmmakers have upped the ante by delivering some gratifyingly gruesome death scenes.

The most well-rounded character in this movie is Death himself.

Same concept, more fun... if you're the kind of moviegoer that thinks creative carnage and watching frantic, screaming people die horribly is fun.

Ali Larter is a fine performer and all, but when she's the big celebrity guest star of a movie, you know there's desperation in the air.

History has shown us - quite brutally at times - that sequels are often little more than shameless cash-ins. 'Final Destination 2' conforms ruthlessly to this trend.

The film does mostly follow its predecessor?s routine, a wise choice; although it has become a less enticing, second lap around the same track.

We don't want logic or complex characterizations in a horror flick - we want to see violent death and dismemberment on the most in-ventive and disgusting scale imaginable, right? On its own terms - elusive as they might be - 'Final Destination 2' delivers
| Original Score: 2/4

Surprisingly good of its kind... if you like gross-out gore, that is.
