The sequel to the surprise horror hit of makes it to video and DVD this week, but does it live up to the origional or is it all about making money?

This time around the film centres on Kimberly Corman (A.J. Cook) who has a premonition whilst waiting to go onto the freeway, that herself, her friends and the passengers in the cars behind her are all about to die in a huge pile-up. Despite everyones protests she blocks the road with her SUV and sure as fate the accident occurs right in front of the stunned groups faces. Kimberly knows however that something is wrong, and with the help of the only survivor from the first film(Ali Larter's Clear Rivers) the group try to stay one step ahead of death.

This film is awesome!! I cannot remember a sequel being better than it's forerunner since 'Scream ' and when I say that, I don't necessarily mean that the first films are bad, I just mean that the sequels manage to outdo them in terms of gory set pieces.

For starters I didn't think anyone would ever top the origional Final Destination's plane crash but boy do they succeed!! The film opens with one of the best action sequences I have ever seen, and constantly produces some of the most morbid and gut-wrenching death scenes I have ever witnessed.

The cast are all very likeable and really make you care for their characters. The film is never self referential but rather uses subtle humour and pop-culture references to achieve it's laughs (was I the only one who got the Different Strokes joke?).

Also the film adds new rules to those set up in the first film, which really worked well for me without ever forcing too much info into my head. Many critics felt that the ending ruined the film but if you understand the humour, you'll think it develishly clever.

OVERALL SUMMARY
I am so glad that the team behind this film took the time to develop it properly, as their planning pays off big time, and as a result we are treated to not only a worthy sequel, but a new entry to the genre hall of fame.
