San Francisco Chronicle
Funnier than the original.

The horror sequel is less philosophical than the original, but it's just as intelligent.

It ain't art. But as a cinematic house of horrors, it more than fills the bill.

Chicago Sun-Times
Perhaps movies are like history, and repeat themselves, first as tragedy, then as farce.

New York Daily News
The movie doesn't even have novelty on its side, since we're basically watching the original "Final Destination" all over again, minus the smarts and humor.

New York Post
Alas, the laughs - courtesy of screenwriters J. Mackye Gruber and Eric Bress and director David R. Ellis - are unintentional.

ReelViews
The movie mandates complete gullibility and vacuous attention in order to work on any level.

Entertainment Weekly
The only pleasure to be derived from the resulting carnage comes from the Rube Goldbergesque chain reactions that precede each fatality.
25
That a group of creative people chose to direct their energies on this repulsive spectacle simply provokes disgust.

By the time I saw poor Tim crushed, head to toe, by a falling sheet of plate glass, I was certain I hadn't signed up for anything this punishing.
25
Despite some imaginative fatalities, is less a movie than a slick video game.

The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
This is a miserable sequel to the modestly well-reviewed Final Destination.
