Trivia

The police officer radios in an accident at mile marker 180 (the accident where the news van eventually blows up). Also when Kim is standing next to her SUV at the exit ramp just before the officer pulls her out of the way of a truck, she sees a road work sign "next 180 feet". These are references to flight 180 in the first movie. See more »

Goofs

At 7 minutes into the movie, where Kimberly's Suburban is blinking the Check Engine light on the dash - first, the light will flash only in case of a serious malfunction of the engine, such as a spark plug misfiring, which requires immediate attention. Losing transmission fluid is not an engine problem, and in fact the transmission overdrive indicator would blink, indicating a transmission problem. Two, the Check Engine light never has a beep associated with the light. See more »

Horror makes way for humour and gore
30 July 2004 | by (Glasgow, Scotland) – See all my reviews

Final Destination was a decent film. Original idea, pretty suspenseful directing, and some death scenes that while inventive, were creepy to boot.

This time around, with a new director and a new approach, we get a very different film. The first movie was a horror - this is'nt. In fact its not even a thriller, its basically a load of silly dialogue acted out badly by very silly actors, with some dead people in-between.

The thing is, that doesn't make the movie all that bad - The deaths and the gore are the pay-offs, and great care has been taken to ensure that all of them would get a great reaction from a packed cinema theatre.

The car pile up at the start is bone crunchingly violent, with buckets of blood being splattered everywhere - and its very entertaining stuff.

Various methods have been used here for the subsequent death scenes (CG, green screens, puppets, models) but it all cuts together very well, and most of the deaths would have your average cinema audience whooping with crimson tainted delight...

The impressive trickery used in killing off each character, intertwining supsense and surprise, is so effective, that many people will come away from this film forgetting that there wasn't actually anything else good about it

  • apart from the eye candy of course.




Worth a watch - you'll recoil in disgust and laugh more than you would watching most movies of this genre. try to catch it before you die.
