As grisly as the movie is, you have to admire its twisted invention and the way it plays the audience like a piano.

...a wet wick of a film never able to ignite.

One of the rare horror sequels that actually helps the movie that inspired it.

As a half-hour "Twilight Zone" episode, it might have been able to hold your attention, but at almost one-and-three-quarter hours, it just tests your patience.

Once you get past the immediate question of how many 'final' destinations there can be (what's next, The Really Final %u2013 No Fooling %u2013 Destination?), this is an efficiently trashy horror flick of the Creative Death school.

"Final Destination 2" is, in a word, a hoot.

The killings aren't exactly slapstick, but they're surprisingly close, and some of them turn out to be fiendishly funny.

How the movie-going public hasn't become bored senseless with such tediously low-standard, so-called scary movies is beyond me.

With every killing played for comic effect, Final Destination 2 negates terror because it's not concerned with survival.

The sequel repeats exactly the far-fetched plot of the original, complete with elaborate chain-reaction deaths visited on the hapless characters and equally elaborate mumbo-jumbo about the fabric of Death's continuum to try to keep the suspense up.

It skillfully accomplishes the horror genre's most basic goal: scaring the hell out of you.

When a horror flick gets tedious, it's DOA.

A sloppy and graceless but fun sequel that serves to illustrate the difference between having a great story and a good screenplay. Still: a matinee idol in a world of false pin-ups.

'Final Destination 2' exploits the universal fear of death -- but it does so with a creepy, creative flair.

The moviegoers most likely to enjoy this aggressively stupid sequel will be those lovers of over-the-top gore effects who cheer out loud when a character is sliced into three pieces that slowly slide apart.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5

In director David R. Ellis's feeble and rancid offering Final Destination 2, we're treated to more of the same nonsensical gory goings-on. This disjointed display of recklessness is bluntly overwrought, blatantly numbing and downright laughable.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
