Storyline

Whilst heading onto the highway, Kimberly Corman has a vision of a huge car accident. Bringing the traffic to a halt, Kimberly is horrified when the accident actually happens. Kimberly links the occurrence with a similar event a year earlier: the Flight 180 disaster. After speaking with Clear Rivers, the only remaining survivor of the Flight 180 disaster, Kimberly discovers that Death's pattern has been disturbed, meaning everyone who was originally supposed to die will now be killed in separate freak accidents. Kimberly and the rest of the survivors must work with Clear to try and stop Death from repeating its process. Written by Film_Fan

Alternate Versions

The theatrical release features a shot that is missing from all DVD versions: when Evan gets his hand stuck in his kitchen sink trying to retrieve his lost ring, the disposal blades below are not shown. The commentary track on the DVD mentions that this was a last moment add-on which heightened the menace and tension of the scene considerably. The commentators were seemingly unaware that the print used for the DVD was one were this "last minute" addition had not yet been added. Two brief glimpses of this missing shot can still be seen in the theatrical trailer. See more »

More gory than the first, but not as good
22 December 2003 | by TBJCSKCNRRQTreviewsSee all my reviews

The director obviously thought that when making a sequel, everything has to be bigger and heavier. But bigger doesn't equal better, and it definitely isn't the case here. The death scenes are unnecessary gory, and only that; practically no build-up to the scenes, and little to no excitement. Unless you enjoy watching extremely bloody, gory death scenes, you won't like this movie. In fact, you will most likely hate it, unless you're a big fan of the genre, or of the first Final Destination. It's a huge gore fest, and probably made for(and maybe even by) fans of the old "body-count" movies, from the 1980's. It has very little realism; whereas the first Final Destination had some realism in the death scenes, this had little to none at all. As many other slasher movies, it has the little "twist-in-the-end" at the very end, but it is very weak, considering what it could have been. The first movie is a lot better, but if you *need* to watch a gory movie where you pretty much sit around and wait for people to die, this isn't the worst you can watch. But if the choice is between this and the first, I would definitely choose the first. 7/10
