'Final Destination 2'
(Ali Larter, A.J. Cook / R / 90 mins / New Line)
Overview: This sequel to Final Destination follows another bunch of teen hotties who have premonitions, cheat death, and are then stalked by el Señor Grim Reaper.
Verdict: A film of leaden dialogue punctuated by fairly surreal and unexpectedly funny action sequences, ’Final Destination 2’ is for still very much an extremely gory good show for fans of R-rated horror mayhem. Sure it takes a good idea from the first film and pounds it relentlessly into the ground, but it is the way in which it does some of these that makes you wonder just how the images came to the Director’s mind in the first place ! But, as usual, it’s nothing more than expected and yet wonderfully entertaining enough to make you forget that you're watching little more than death warmed over!
