This film was as good as its predecessor, maybe even better. This film takes the formula and pacing from the first film and perfects it. It has more gore than the first and more deaths. The deaths are better spread out and the pacing is a little better. The Evan Ladder death or The Barb wire death are my favorite in the film. Totally a watch if you enjoyed the first film or enjoy horror films in general.


Rating: 8.3/10

Sequel to the okay first film features a spectacular opening sequence involving a multiple vehicle highway crash, but nothing in the rest of the film lives up to that opening. As with the first film, a teen has a premonition of death and their group of friends "cheat" death. They are then stalked by death in elaborate sequences leading to their inevitable demise. While the deaths in this film are satisfyingly unique and interesting, they lack the suspenseful and build up that "X-Files" veterans Glen Morgan and James Wong brought to the first film. What happens instead is that most of the deaths play out with it looking like a character has gotten away, but then suddenly get killed, which isn't all that clever after it's been done the first time. But overall, this film is still worth checking out for horror fans, though I'm not sure it'll satisfy casual horror fans. Oh, and it was fun to see Justina Machado, who's now famous as the mother on the Netflix remake of "One Day at a Time."

Final Destination 2 is perplexingly better than the original, and while it's just as dependent on over-the-top gore and illogical plotting as its predecessor, it still offers its share of deliciously gruesome kills and solid performances to make for an entertaining diversion.

"Probably the best film out of the franchise, yet still becomes a guilty pleasure."

The first movie was better than this

well, it doesn't really do any better or worse than its predecessor: the plot is still goofy, the setups amusingly grim but expected, and acting still average. still, it's leaps and bounds above many of the older generation of B-rate cheesy horror flicks (Prom Night, Graduation Day, Carrie, etc). if you don't get into it expecting much, you might just get something out of it.

fun horror movie at times. i enjoyed a lot of it but it got worse and worse. so many cheesy parts. i didn't like the actors. and they tried to go in depth with the original idea and it starts to lose you. it becomes a bunch of madness and made up ideas. the accident scenes were mostly awesome, especially the highway scene. (about 3 viewings)

Bloody, exciting, and decently performed. Final Destination 2 offers more of the over the top gory scenes than the predecessor while also offering a clever twist.

The story is not bad and the death sequences were creative.

A strong and witty adaption in a great horror series. Has the second-best opening in the franchise.

This is by far the best one in the series. The beginning sequence of events on the highway was amazing and the son's arm landing on the mother's plate at the end of the film was hilarious.

Quase tão legal quanto o primeiro! Interessante que linkam os personagens do primeiro a esse. Divertido :D

Final Destination 2 is much better than its predecessor doing a better job with foreshadowing and survival and creative killings of the characters though it may not have much thrills it doesn't have bad storytelling and it doesn't have cheap jump scares to make you jump out of your seat

So glad for this one

Although it's perplexingly better than the original, Final Destination 2 still doesn't earn its stripes because all it does is recycle the first film's plot and its only achievement lies within crafting more grotesque scenes of characters getting their insides ripped out.
