Review by Steve Rhodes
1½ stars out of 4

You have to give one thing to FINAL DESTINATION 2, it does have an impressively frightening opening, most of which is shown in its trailers. A big, heavy, logging truck is going down a rain-slick, heavily-trafficked highway. Of course, its logs come loose, setting off a horrible chain reaction crash that takes dozens of people's lives. The sound of the accident is intense, and the stunt work is believable, which is more than you can say about the rest of the picture.

Just as FINAL DESTINATION was about people who cheat death by leaving just before disaster strikes, in FINAL DESTINATION 2 not everyone who was supposed to perish in the pile-up does. Kimberly Corman (A.J. Cook), a young driver who has a daydream that predicts the events that are about to unfold, saves the lives of many would-be goners. The rules for the FINAL DESTINATION series, however, require Mr. Death to come back later and collect the bodies on his list, and his manner of working isn't pretty. One guy, for example, is almost killed in a fire but ends up having his brain impaled by a heavy metal ladder.

The thin story isn't able to sustain anything approaching a full movie length. As a half-hour "Twilight Zone" episode, it might have been able to hold your attention, but at almost one-and-three-quarter hours, it just tests your patience. Let's hope that this is the final FINAL DESTINATION.

FINAL DESTINATION 2 runs 1:40. It is rated R for "strong violent/gruesome accidents, language, drug content and some nudity" and would be acceptable for older teenagers.
