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.
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.
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.
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.
