Default Final Destination 2

Who would have imagined that death could be so bound up in rules and regulations?

In the horrific yet wooden Final Destination 2, a teenager who inexplicably has the skinny on death's not-so-subtle ways explains: "You die in the order that you were originally meant to." But if someone intervenes to save you, then you step out of order and go last.

Since when was actual mathematics involved in determining when your number is up?

Perhaps the filmmakers' time would have been better spent taking a course in logic. When Final Destination 2 opens, it literally sets itself up as a disaster waiting to happen. The first scene seems to drag on forever, sometimes in dull silence, in an attempt to create suspense. But by the time the big pay-off happens a fiery, prolonged multi-car crash it just seems anti-climactic.

The editing is sloppy, and the dialogue and reactions of the characters seem as if they're delivered a beat or two off. The cast is so amateurish and the plot so incoherent that you get the sense of watching a student film.

A small group of drivers escapes that massive highway pile-up just as those in the first Final Destination evaded death in a plane crash. But we soon learn they were meant to die.

From there, the movie's sole reason for existence is to gorily depict the various ways these unlucky survivors can be impaled, stabbed and torn asunder.

How does someone die freakishly? Let us count the ways: A recent lottery winner is devoured by a garbage disposal as he struggles to retrieve a gaudy ring. A boy suffers torture at the hand of an incompetent dentist and then is pulverized by a falling plate-glass window. A motorcyclist is impaled through the eye. A driver is sliced in half.

As if the world, at the brink of war, isn't perilous enough.

Final Destination 2 is described in production notes as "a supernatural thriller." That would put this reprehensible gore-fest in the same category as such well-made films as The Exorcist and The Sixth Sense. But this is a slasher flick, pure and simple. Here the slasher is fate itself, no less malevolent than Freddie or Jason. Though somehow the goings-on seem worse.

That there is an audience for a movie in which innocent people suffer hideous accidental deaths is troubling enough, but that a group of creative people chose to direct their energies on this repulsive spectacle simply provokes disgust.
_____________________________________________
I really REALLY did not like this movie. This is nowhere as near as scary as F.D 1 and the only thing I liked about the film was the way some of the characters got killed...and the ways that they COULD have been killed. Gives me ideas...
