TOMATOMETER

AUDIENCE SCORE

Critic Consensus: This sequel is little more than an excuse to stage elaborate, gory scenes of characters getting killed off.

Movie Info

Death lurks, and two teenage girls try to figure out where he's heading, in this sequel to the unexpected teen horror hit Final Destination. As Clear Rivers (Ali Larter), the only surviving passenger of the ill-fated Flight 180, waits in a mental institution, certain Death will claim her, Kim (A.J. Cook), who has begun to display precognitive powers, is driving along the highway when she sees a terrible accident in which several cars crash into a logging truck. Moments later, the horrible vision is gone, but Kim is certain she saw an accident that was supposed to happen but didn't...and now Death will track down the souls he meant to take that day who slipped through his fingers. A police officer, Thomas Burke (Michael Landes), believes there's a germ of truth in Kim's story, and teams her up with Clear in hopes that together they can help prevent Death from snuffing out any more of the people involves in the accident that wasn't. Tony Todd also returns from the first film as Mr. Bludworth.

Audience Reviews for Final Destination 2

½

This sequel deserves credit for its spectacular first sequence, which is really tense and well made. What follows, though, is more tongue-in-cheek, making fun of Death's ingenious traps and with an intriguing idea about how the plot is influenced by the events of the first film.

4 stars, and that only for the blow-you-outta-yer-seat opening. The rest is the series typical Death as an implacable, invisible prankster force-of-nature ... and I can live with that. Don't get too attached to any characters.
