    Funnier than the original.

    Essentially dumb and sadistic, but it's not like that's something new for pop culture. What we've got here is a solid, grade-B genre sequel, not as scary as the original but a bit funnier, and with a nasty little sting in its tail.
  3. A series of Grand Guignol skits played for mean-spirited laughs.

    If this is your idea of fun, step right up.
  5. Alas, the laughs - courtesy of screenwriters J. Mackye Gruber and Eric Bress and director David R. Ellis - are unintentional.

    I wasn’t much scared by anything in Final Destination 2 which is silly and illogical.

    This risible thriller is merely a sadistic series of misread premonitions and vile murders.

    A slight step up from the original. Well acted and a more developed plot helps redeem the status of the Final Destination franchise. The thingA slight step up from the original. Well acted and a more developed plot helps redeem the status of the Final Destination franchise. The thing that makes this film stand out more then the original is that it has a clear beginning, middle and end. More mystery better deaths and higher production value. It's a pretty good cliche horror film. Expand

    Final Destination was brilliant and always will be. The first movie was never meant to be made into a series.

    Final Destination was brilliant and always will be. The first movie was never meant to be made into a series.
    This sequel is beyond lame and corny. All the effects are overdone and intended to shock you but they make you cringe and are overly gory. The movie provides more laughs than scares and in horror movies that's usually not the intention.
