Kim visits Clear Rivers Ali Larter , the only survivor of Flight 180 who is convinced to help out the survivors of Route 23. Indeed, the first death scene is both funny and horrific all in one because, like with many of the deaths in this movie, it can really seem as that can actually happen. I loved the first film, had a definite originality to it, if I'm honest the second instalment was always my favourite in the series. We also have a nice cameo of Tony Todd aka the Candyman as Bludworth, who plays the man at the morgue, he is suitably chilling, and is set to play a larger part in the sequel. Suspense wise this film doesn't fail either. I'm definitely looking forward to a Final Destination 3.
The story may not make sense at some scenes and the story is filled with holes. If this all sounds convoluted, watch the movie. The thing is, that doesn't make the movie all that bad - The deaths and thegore are the pay-offs, and great care has been taken to ensure that all ofthem would get a great reaction from a packed cinema theatre. Of course no horror movie is perfect. I wouldn't say the film is to scary but there are some moments that may leave with fear. I had seen this movie by chance and knew nothing about it. That didn't happen in his case.
Final Destination, or Flight 180' as it was titled right up until the last minute, was a surprise hit of 2000. Do not miss this guilty pleasure sequel. The first movie was a horror - this is'nt. Blocking the entrance with hercar, Kimberly watches in horror as the crash unfolds, thus saving herlife and that of the people in the queue behind her. The death scenes are unnecessary gory, and only that; practically no build-up to the scenes, and little to no excitement.
If you know a person is going to die as soon as the camera pans of them, and their all alone, then your waiting in anticipation for them to die, but there are many false scares along the way. Ellis directs with gusto: his freeway pile-up is an absolutely jaw-dropping piece of cinema—a brutal, bloody and disturbing set-piece—and the subsequent death scenes are masterfully orchestrated pieces of mayhem that tease the audience with several possible bloody conclusions, before delivering their always impressive pay-off gory fatalities are caused by a falling ladder, a sheet of glass, a faulty elevator, an air-bag, a flying wire fence, and a barbecue!!! It is not as widely recognized as the Scream trilogy, but in many respects it's better. Many movies would shy away from smashing up plastic ketchup-filled dummies, opting instead to avoid the gore. The acting was decent with the best being Ali Larter. I have to admit that when I first saw the previews for Final Destination, I didn't think much. Other than that, the movie was good. The highlight is the terrific opening car pile up, which is as high in the terror stakes as the opening plane sequence in the first.
Excepting some nice irony and that the exposition isn't as clumsy, the dialogue doesn't flow particularly well and reeks of cheese. Final Destination, thanks to an imaginative story, nice acting and some elaborate death scenes breathes new life into the tired genre of teen horror. Wow, did they do that??? In desperation, he attempts to contradict death for everyone remaining while under superstition of two disillusioned law enforcers. While it doesn't rate up there with the the best films of all time. James Wong X Files came up with the idea of the movie, about cheating death, and it does seem to have a kind of X Files ring to it.
It gets a quick reaction, like, ooh, I feel your pain man. Clear has to either risk her life helping others, or stay inside the hospital the rest of her life waiting for her death to come. Although there is a little too much of an over-reliance on gore, not all of it necessary, the death scenes are bolder, more elaborate and more creative. With no big name actors, and no major publicity the film did so well because of word of mouth and the word was it was damn good. She has a vision of a horrific traffic accident and so she blocks some of the cars from entering the highway. The plot may sound stupid but its actually not all that bad.
The film wastes no time depicting its setup. Story is intriguing, the suspense flows well throughout, and there are enough violent deaths to satisfy the target audience. There where parts in this movie that really kind of disturbed me but thats what made it so exciting and so suspenseful cause you new it was gonna happen just didn't know when. Worth a watch - you'll recoil in disgust and laugh more than you would watching most movies of this genre. The sheer surprise and execution of the executions made me jump and crawl. This movie gets 2 thumbs up from me. In amongst the graphic bloodletting, Ellis also finds time to throw in some very nice visual touches such as the tree shadows which resemble clutching skeletal hands and lots of delightfully dark humour gotta love that final shot! Also, it makes you think about death itself.
One day, she is approached by a girl named Kimberly who believes she had a premonition similar to her friend Alex who died. It gives you something to think about. What everyone was saying in the film was that if someone intervened in your death, Death skipped you and went to the next person. Scared for his life, and the others on the plane, he cause a fuss which sees him and several other classmates chucked off the plane. I have to say some of actors are pretty bad but the idea is fun and they always think of new crazy ways to kill people.
The best performances come from returning Ali Larter, providing a nifty link to the first, and a creepy Tony Todd. One day, she is approached by a girl named Kimberly who believes she had a premonition similar to her friend Alex who died. Bodies are slammed by trucks, heads are impaled, and limbs fly through the air. Liked the irony in some of the dialogue. This was a very solid sequel, really entertaining and fun to watch. Also the suspense is kept up throughout the movie, it doesn't seem to drag too much at any time.
