When Kimberly has a violent premonition of a highway pileup she blocks the freeway, keeping a few others meant to die, safe. Or are they? The survivors mysteriously start dying and it's up to Kimberly to stop it before she's next.
Following Jigsaw's grisly demise, Mark Hoffman is commended as a hero, but Agent Strahm is suspicious, and delves into Hoffman's past. Meanwhile, another group of people are put through a series of gruesome tests.
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
Writers Eric Bress and J. Mackye Gruber came to write this film after Benderspink entertainment read "The Butterfly Effect". The writer agreed to do this if the studio would let them direct it. See more »
When Officer Burke searched the website for information on the Flight 180 survivors, he opens the picture of Tod Wagner hanging in the bathtub, with his hands at his neck (his hands fell down to the side upon his death) and his eyes looking forward to the right (instead of looking down to the left) and white without the petechial hemorrhaging.
That picture is obviously a picture of Chad Donella posing during the production of his character's death scene. See more »
Tomorrow marks the one-year anniversary since Velez Air Flight 180 exploded and crashed shortly after takeoff from JFK airport. It's a disaster that's affected many. None more so than Mt. Abraham High School, which lost 40 students and 4 faculty members in the crash. But it was the events after the crash that has turned this tragic story into something even stranger. The survivors that managed to get off the plane before it crashed died soon thereafter in a series of mysterious and...

Kimberly Corman has a terrifying vision that a highway pile up will claim her life and that of her friends. Blocking the entrance with her car, Kimberly watches in horror as the crash unfolds, thus saving her life and that of the people in the queue behind her. But the grim reaper is not impressed and he's coming to claim the deaths of all those who should have died in the crash.
For a sequel to truly work well it has to come up with something fresh, otherwise why do a sequel eh? Well the makers of Final Destination 2 choose to use the basic same formula of the hugely enjoyable first film, only adding more black humour into the crazy death design broth. Opening with a quite horrific highway pile up, FD 2 then takes us on a journey that sees an assortment of folk offed in various and gruesome ways. The story remains the same as the first film, even though writers Bress and Gruber think they are being intricate by weaving this plot into the original story, but ultimately it's just a devilishly nonsense fun picture. Ali Larter returns for a second helping, and she in turn is joined by a bunch of no mark actors waiting for death, which is perfectly fine for the genre discerning fan.
This is a riot, and as long as you don't look too deep into it (why would you really?) you may just find yourself having a real good time. 7/10
