Corrected entry: The whole basis of FD2 is how to stop death, by giving new life. Technically this would have happened in the first film when Alex died by electrocution when saving Clear, then was brought back to life.

Correction: Yeah, but then that's not NEW life - just the return of an old one. The only ways to make NEW life is with a baby or cloning.

Corrected entry: In the Stoneybrook Institute, the nurse lists sharp objects, saying shoelaces higher in the list than penknives.

Correction: Who cares what order she says them in? She doesn't specifically say "In order of importance" So maybe she is just reading the list as Clear gave it to her...

Corrected entry: It is said that all would be over when new life defeats death, what means that someone has to be dead and then revived. Unfortunately this already happened in Final Destination 1. When Alex saves Clear by holding the wire his heart stops beating. You can tell because the FBI-Agent says so and tries CPR. Alex survives, so this should count as a new life. In this case, all would have been over even before Carter dies at the end of part 1.

Correction: The "new life" thing only worked to close the rift between the two sets. This is the same reason why Death acts in reverse in the second group, to close the rift. In the original movie, there is only one set working forward, thus no rift.

Correction: "New life" means the birth of a baby; the characters say so themselves.

They thought the "New Life" meant the birth of the baby but Kimberly sees her vision again and sees that the pregnant woman was not involved in the accident in her vision. That is why Clear and Eugene die after the birth of the baby.

Corrected entry: When all of the characters are driving in the car, discussing how they had something to do with the survivors of Flight 180s' deaths, Eugene says that the teacher he replaced was killed by a kid who came in to school with a knife and stabbed her. Then, not even two minutes later, he says that she wasn't killed by being stabbed, but reveals that it was Miss Lewton, and did in fact die in the explosion in her house, and not by being stabbed by a kid at school.


Correction: No, the teacher that was stabbed and killed by the student was at his original school. He left two days before that event to replace the already dead teacher from the first film.


Corrected entry: The dental assistant intervenes to save Timmy from choking to death on the plastic fish. Nora should be next on death's list, however Timmy is killed by the falling sheet of glass anyway.

Correction: The dental assistant, not having any form of premonition and not being one of the unintended survivors, doesn't count as having intervened.

Correction: Because Timmy wasn't supposed to die there but outside by the falling glass.

Corrected entry: On the the site with the victims/survivors of flight 180, that the officer is looking on, under the photo of Billy Hitchcock you'll find written in red letters "Decapitated by train". Which is not really correct. When the train passed by, it caused a piece of metal, that was lying near or between the tracks, to "fly". This piece of metal decapitated Billy.

Correction: Should they have written "Decapitated by a piece of metal that has been lifted by a train passing by and hit Billy's neck"? This is a rather long explanation for a picture title.

Corrected entry: The spaghetti Evan tossed out the window when he got home couldn't have possibly landed right under the ladder, therefore, Evan should have been able to escape.

Correction: All the vitims die an impossible death, which is why the spaghetti helped kill him.

Corrected entry: When Eugene's room explodes, the entire volume of air bursts into flames. However, oxygen is not flammable by itself, there should be another flammable gas in the room to cause such explosion and there wasn't. (01:18:55)

Correction: The problem is, just about anything is flammable in pure oxygen. In the Apollo 1 fire, for example, it was Velcro, only later found to be flammable in 100% oxygen, that was the primary culprit. So in a room full of pure oxygen, almost anything might become flammable, burn, release enough gas to combine with the oxygen, and result in a fire/explosion.

Corrected entry: Kimberly, Tom, Eugene, Kat and Rory explain how they cheated death because the characters from the previous movie intervened, but it never explains how Evan, Tim and Nora cheated death because Tod intervened Kimberly; Terry intervened Kat, Ms. Lewton intervened Eugene; Billy intervened Tom; and Carter intervened Rory. How did Evan, Tim and Nora cheat death when there are no characters left from FD1 to intervene?

Correction: They weren't supposed to die during FD1. The fact that they were saved from the car accident is why they were killed.

Correction: Just because they had no stories to tell doesn't mean that it was necessary. Added to that, nobody could have known anyway since it was never brought up until later in the movie, i.e. the scene in the field.

Corrected entry: At the gas station Tom mentions to Clear and Kimberley that that there was a pregnant girl in a white van. He had not seen her at all during the blockage at the highway, so how does he know?

Correction: The pregnant woman gets out of her van to ask him if people can drive around Kimberly's SUV.

Corrected entry: After the big crash in the beginning of the movie, Evan, the lotto winner, is walking up the stairs to his apartment with a couple boxes. As he struggles to get to his door, he almost trips over a toy baby and an ambulance. This seems to foreshadow the plot point later on about the pregnant lady and the 'new life' at the end.

Correction: The baby is meant to foreshadow Evan's death because if you look closely it only has one eye.(this is mentioned on the DVD).

Corrected entry: In this film, Death's Design is: whoever Kimberley sees dying first in her premonition will die last. Thus, whoever was first on Death's list is now last. Claire was originally the first person on Death's list, being the only survivor from the first film. Thus, she should now be last on the list in this film, after Kimberley. Claire's death doesn't make sense. She should have been either the first person to die, or the last. Her death is just random - she dies at the same time as Eugene - and surely can't be accounted for in the list.

Correction: Clear was on a different list than the survivors of the pileup. Since she was the sole survivor from the Flight 180 list, she was able to be killed at any time.


Corrected entry: The guy in the elevator says that he had "wrote to management two weeks ago about those friggin' bumpers" but two weeks ago Nora's design was to be killed in the pile-up. Death wouldn't mess with the elevator bumpers that early because it had prepared for Nora to die another way.

Correction: The faulty elevators were never Death's doing. They were genuinely faulty for mechanical reasons, so after Nora survived the crash and ended up in the apartment block - which again is nothing Death could have preplanned - it was forced to improvise.

Corrected entry: Kimberley is scared when Bloodworth knows her name ("How do you know my name?") but in the cell, she seems perfectly fine with Clear calling her Kimberley when she hasn't introduced herself by name.

Correction: Obviously as she is visiting a mental institution, she would have to give her name, either for registration in a guest book, or for Clear to agree to see her.

Corrected entry: On paper I'm sure it sounds fine but the 'ripple effect' theory doesn't make sense. Even if they died in the opposite order, people who died later like Rory and Kat still affected the lives of others. Even the kid at the end could have affected someone's chain of events in his last few days- the ripple would continue.

Correction: Hence the possibility for an FD3.

Corrected entry: When the pigeon smashes through the window at the dentist, the colours on its back, change colour between shots.

Correction: They are not the same pidgeons.

Corrected entry: When the pregnant lady has her baby, she gives birth to a fully grown 4 month old kid. No wonder she was screaming so much.


Correction: The baby was not 4 months old, if you watch the movie on DVD with infinifilm, it will tell you during the birth scene that the baby is only a few weeks old.

Corrected entry: In the scene where the boy gets squashed by the falling glass, the glass seems to fall straight to the ground and all we can see is blood - no body. It looks as though the glass just squashed him to a pulp - yet a few shots later we see him in a body bag getting lifted in to an ambulance with the outline of his body perfectly clear. How is this possible when there was no body to pick up?

Correction: If you just glance at the body bag, you can see that there is no distinct outline of any body whatsoever. It appears to be an empty body bag.

Corrected entry: Why would Ewan die as the first one? In the pile-up scene, he dies as one of the last persons. Yet in the first movie they die in the order in which they would have died.

Correction: It is made clear in the movie that this time Death's design is different than FD1, the people who die in FD2 are dying in reverse, so Ewen being the last to die in the pile-up dies first.

Corrected entry: In the deleted scene when Kim is avoiding the cops they drive by a Canadian flag even though they are supposed to be in New York.

Correction: It's a deleted scene. That may be one reason it was scrapped. However if this isn't the reason, you can see flags of all types everywhere around New York, I have a German flag hanging outside my home.

Continuity mistake: When the lottery winner is going to die, the beer bottle he takes out of the fridge moves all over the place. It even vanishes a couple of times.

Question: In the dentist office scene, Tim almost chokes to death when the toy puffer fish falls into his mouth, but the nurse saves him by pulling it out. Nora should be next, but Tim gets crushed by the glass pane anyway. This is a major mistake on death's list.


Chosen answer: No it simply means that Tim was not supposed to die by the puffer fish. He was meant to be saved so that he could die later. The movie shows multiple instances where someone almost dies, but at the last second is saved. It's a common way to build suspense.
