Storyline

Whilst heading onto the highway, Kimberly Corman has a vision of a huge car accident. Bringing the traffic to a halt, Kimberly is horrified when the accident actually happens. Kimberly links the occurrence with a similar event a year earlier: the Flight 180 disaster. After speaking with Clear Rivers, the only remaining survivor of the Flight 180 disaster, Kimberly discovers that Death's pattern has been disturbed, meaning everyone who was originally supposed to die will now be killed in separate freak accidents. Kimberly and the rest of the survivors must work with Clear to try and stop Death from repeating its process. Written by Film_Fan

Goofs

(at around 10 mins) During the big pile up scene in the beginning of the movie we see many cars roll over and as a result we see the undercarriage of many vehicles. However, upon closer inspection you can see the round cylinders on one side of the undercarriage which are part of the mechanism that, when activated, uses an explosive charge to flip the car over. This usually involves what is essentially, shooting a large piece of telephone pole at an explosive rate of speed down through the underside of the car and onto the ground which acts as a jack of sorts. But at the rate of speed it happens due to the explosive charge, it not only lifts the car up off the ground but flips it over violently. See more »

Alternate Versions

The theatrical release features a shot that is missing from all DVD versions: when Evan gets his hand stuck in his kitchen sink trying to retrieve his ring, the disposal blades below are not shown. The commentary track on the DVD mentions that this was a last moment add-on which heightened both the menace and tension of the scene. The commentators were seemingly unaware that the print used for the DVD was one where this "last minute addition" had not yet been added. Two brief glimpses of this missing shot can still be seen in the theatrical trailer. See more »

Entertaining sequel and again with horrifying killings
31 January 2008 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

This sequel of successful original by James Wong deals about beautiful girl(A.J.Cook)has a vision of car crash and aware which by avoiding it, she and others(Michael Lastres, Lynda Boyd, James Kirk,Sarah Carter,Jonathan Cherry, Kevin Connor, among them) around her have saved but soon begin dying in bizarre accidents. Being the sole character repeating from Ali Larter who now finds herself locked into sanatorium.

This sequel displays suspense, tension, thrills, and creepy death. The chief excitement lies in seeing what new and astonishing victim can be dreamt by the believable FX technicians. Movie exist for only aim of murdering its protagonists and all around in terrifying realistic detail . Death seem to dispatch new weird killing every few minutes of movie, throughout car crashing, beheading, blowing up, glass crushing, fire, etc. It's frightening entertaining though predictable but we have seen the original with similar and interesting premise. Although its predictability is redeemed in part by the charismatic acting of protagonists and all around. The motion picture is well directed by David R Ellis. He has a long career as stunts coordinator, assistant director and finally filmmaker, directing Box office success such as ¨Cellular and Snakes on plane¨. Followed by a second sequel.
