Final Destination 2 is likely only to be enjoyed by devotees of grueling amusement-park rides. It revels in the vicious "Can you take this?" thrills found in the most gut-churning roller coasters and centrifugal-force-based whirligigs. But that's not a huge surprise; what is most shocking about director David R. Ellis' clever and extremely gory film is that it's one of few horror sequels to outdo the original.
The premise of the first film involved a group of kids who cheat death after one foresees a horrific plane crash. Though these lucky few elude their fate at first, they subsequently start expiring in grisly and unexpected ways. One of the youths, Clear Rivers (Ali Larter), survives the Grim Reaper's scythe and shows up to offer assistance to FD2's protagonist, Kimberly Corman (A.J. Cook).
