Corrected entry: When Rory gets cut into thirds, in the background you can faintly hear someone cheer and say beautiful, perhaps because the stunt went so well.
Corrected entry: After Kimberly has the vision of the pile-up, she pulls her car across the on-ramp. She is still behind the concrete separator, so how did the truck actually hit her car later on? There was no evidence that the concrete was ever there. The truck got her cleanly.
Corrected entry: Flight 180 was due on May 13. In FD-2, when the survivors of the car accident are reminiscing how they had managed to cheat death in their past, Kat Jennings says that last May she was supposed to die at some hotel of the gas leak but she didn't get there as the bus she was on hit Terry Chaney. It couldn't happen in May, because Terry was present at the memorial opening which took place 39 days after the air crash. So she couldn't die earlier than in June.
Corrected entry: After Kimberly has the premonition of Dr. Kalarjian wheeling the ECG machine, she doesn't say anything about it to the cop or to Clear. Yet the cop says to her a few seconds later something like- 'Okay, so you saw an ECG machine and what else?'. How did he know if Kimberly never said anything? [NOTE-This is on the DVD under one of the subtitles.]
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.YourFinalDestination
Corrected entry: At least two events from each film are based on real life tragedies or accidents. For this film, the crash scene is based on a 125 car pile-up that happened in Ringgold, Georgia in 2002, and Nora's death is based on an accident where an intern at St. Joseph's Hospital in Texas was decapitated by a faulty elevator.Jazetopher
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.
Corrected entry: When Kimberly is talking to her Dad outside her house in the first scene, the extra doing yard work in the is raking one minute, clipping hedges the next and then raking again as Kimberly drives away. The time lapses between shots aren't long enough for him to go and get a clippers or rake (neither are visible on the ground or nearby while the other is in use).Shay
Corrected entry: In the scene where the white van crashes into the field, as the camera moves down over the van, the log sticking out of the side door is extremely long. When the kid tries to help Kat remove the log, you can see it's shorter then before.
Corrected entry: In the beginning when Kimberly is driving she passes a car with a kid and a father in. Look at the kid, he is playing with two toys, a red SUV and a dirty truck. He is holding them up and banging them together. Kimberly is driving a red SUV and it's a dirty great truck that causes the accident.pierpp
Corrected entry: When logs fall out of a truck, they don't bounce like the ones in the movie, (this is pointed out on the DVD).
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.
Corrected entry: On the freeway scene, the drug guy is in a mustang convertible with the top down. In the very next scene, he is in a hard top vehicle. There's no way possible this could happen even in her premonition.
Corrected entry: In Kimberley's premonition scene, after the log comes off the truck and goes through the cop car, you see the guy on the motorcycle locks up his brakes and falls off the bike. If you pay attention the bike starts sliding in front of him, but ends up crushing him against the Log. How in the world did he manage to get back in front of a sliding bike when he was behind it to begin with?
Corrected entry: After the explosion in the hospital, Kimberly runs out to the ambulance to crash it while the cop is trapped in the hospital by the electrical doors shorting out. The cop is next on the list, yet death keeps him away from Kimberly who is trying to kill herself. But death should have actually stopped Kimberly because she wasn't next.
Corrected entry: At the end of the pile up scene, an instant right before the truck hits her friends, the fat kid's head disappears from the window, showing that the car is empty. You can see it in slow motion.
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.
Corrected entry: In the end of Final Destination 2, Kimberly runs the van into the lake for her big heroic New Life, but according to Death's Design, the police officer should have been the next one to be killed, he was never almost killed and nobody intervened to save his life. The film makes a point to show you during the movie that you can't die outside of death's design, but somehow Kimberly does.
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.
Corrected entry: When the kid is crushed by the pane of glass, if you watch it in slow-motion you can see that he is almost completely crushed and the pane is almost at the ground when it switches to a different shot, where suddenly the glass is still just crushing his head.
Corrected entry: When Evan arrives at his apartment, he opens a window. Later on when the apartment is on fire, two windows close by themselves. He never opened a second window.
Corrected entry: On the website about the survivors of flight 180, it states that Alex was nineteen at the time of his death, yet in the beginning of the original film, his father says he is seventeen. How did he manage this when only one year has passed? The events of Final Destination 2 take place on the one year anniversary of the plane crash, Carter was killed a little over 7 months after the plane crash, not one year, and Alex dies somewhere in between. Even if Alex turned 18 the day after we see his dad saying that he's 17 he still couldn't possibly have turned 19 before his death.
Corrected entry: If they are 'safe proofing' the house, why is the bike still hanging on the wall? This would be one of the first things to remove.
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.
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?
Corrected entry: After Kimberley's premonition, the truck crashes and when this happens everyone in the car can see the whole thing. However, Dano, in the end seat of the car, is looking in totally the opposite direction.
Corrected entry: The news van with the call letters WWED is WAY out of its area. Radio and television stations in the US begin with 'W' if located east of the Mississippi or a 'K' if west of it. The movie is supposed to take place on the US West Coast, therefore the news van should have call letters beginning with a 'K'.
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?
Corrected entry: All the vehicles are equipped with New York license plates yet none have registration or inspection stickers in the lower driver's side corner of the front windshield.
Corrected entry: The part where Eugene is nearly killed by the kayak makes no sense. We know he was never meant to die, given the events with the gun a few minutes later, yet he is only saved by Claire pulling him away at the last second. There is no way that Death could have known that Claire would have intervened, and it's safe to day that Death can't control spontaneous human reactions - if it could then it'd make people throw themselves off buildings, slit their own wrists etc. Even if he was meant to die, then surely after this escape he should have gone behind Kimberly in the list order. And even if Eugene was never meant to be hit by the kayak in the first place, and Claire was always meant to save his life, then why did Death bother in the first place?
Corrected entry: In the scene where the firefighters are using the jaws of life to get the girl out of the van, the jaws make a sound like a chainsaw. The last time I checked, the jaws were pneumatic and while the air compressor would make an engine type of noise, it is nowhere near the sound like a chainsaw.
Corrected entry: When the people in the SUV are talking about how they cheated death before the one woman talks about the bus she was on hit some girl on the road. Later Clear says that girl was Terry Chaney (from FD1) but the bus that hit Terry was empty.
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.
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.
Corrected entry: Timmy's mom comes into his bedroom and gives him his medicine tablet to swallow. If you watch his hand, he pinches the tablet and seems to put it in his mouth. When he drops his hand, though, you notice that he is pinching his finger and thumb down; most likely he is still holding the tablet, which has never been swallowed.
Corrected entry: Eugene should not be on Death's list before the film even begins- he says that he was transferred because of Val Lewton's death but she would have died in the plane crash if everything had gone to Death's plan- her job would have been available if Alex hadn't got her off the plane. Even if you argued that he was appointed rather than someone else because she died slightly later (her job may have been available at a different time and thus to a different person) she quit her job after the accident. The job was not affected by Alex's premonition and so neither was Eugene's design.
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.
Corrected entry: Modern airbags, when activated, deflate almost instantly after impact, unlike what's seen in the car wreck scene.
Corrected entry: Clear Rivers has had herself committed and is now afraid that death will get her. She does not allow anything in the room that may harm her. She obviously doesn't mind a television with its high vacuum tube and high voltage circuitry. One spark and that padding she finds so comforting will go up in smoke. Then the tube explodes, splattering her head on the rear wall. More unbelievable things have happened.
Corrected entry: In the Stoneybrook Institute, the nurse lists sharp objects, saying shoelaces higher in the list than penknives.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Corrected entry: If Death's design has been totally messed up and was started all over again the death of the boy at the end of the movie makes no sense. He may have to be dead according to the old plan because his life causes a new rift, but the old plan does not count anymore. His spectacular death would be obvious if the old design would still work, but in this case it means his original place in the new design expects him to explode on a barbecue, what seems quite odd.
Corrected entry: The scene where the chain snaps and makes the logs fall off the semi-trailer isn't consistent with real loads. Normally on a flat bed trailer there are 8 chains along with side rails to prevent a spill. Also the weight of those logs would have been on a semi-trailer with an extra set of wheel assemblies. Bottom line, one chain snapping would not have made the logs fall off. Plus log trailers do not rely on chains alone to hold the logs on. There are poles made of 4" box tubing on the sides of the trailer.
Corrected entry: When Clear opens the door of her cell first she already stands in the back of the room. When she opens it next time the button is right next to the door, what means she would have stood there the first time, too.
Corrected entry: The kid that got killed by a gas grill that blew up was originally meant to get hit by a news van when the entire car collision occurred. I don't think he was meant to die there because none of those people should have been alive in the first place and the entire car collision in the fields was never supposed to exist.
Corrected entry: Clear is very pale, from not being outside in several months. When we first see her yet she magically gets some color by the time she reaches Kim's house.
Corrected entry: When the pigeon smashes through the window at the dentist, the colours on its back, change colour between shots.
Corrected entry: When the rescue crew is using the jaws of life to get the one girl out of the car, wouldn't it be standard procedure to disable the air bag? Or at the very least remove the 12 inch spike right behind her head?
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?
Corrected entry: When Timmy is choking on a plastic fish at the dentists', he is unable to remove it as the Nitrous Oxide stops him from being able to move properly. However, when the nurse comes in an removes the fish, Timmy gasps, sits up a little bit and very quickly moves his hand from his chest to his side. What happened to the paralysis?
Corrected entry: I know that journalists can't drive, but they would surely notice reversing onto a pile of rocks hard enough to damage the fuel tank? But they didn't even acknowledge it at all.
Corrected entry: When Kimberly pulls out in front of the traffic after her vision there are heaps of cars held up. If she hadn't stopped way more people would have been killed than just Norma, Timmy, Rory, Kat and Eugine, Isabella, the baby and the cop.
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.
Corrected entry: In the premonition car crash sequence Kimberley's blonde friend can be seen momentarily with her head outside the red van (through a sun-roof or window). The van then flips on that side squashing her head, cut to an interior shot and the blonde is a bit bloody but still alive and conscious.
Corrected entry: If Clear was so concerned about her safety, then surely she would have avoided bleaching her hair from dark in the 1st film to blonde in this sequel, think of all those nasty chemicals. Plus why volunteer to stay in a locked padded cell? Surely the risk of being trapped in a possible fire at the institution or failed air supply causing suffocation would have entered her head?pierpp
Corrected entry: When the lottery winner gets his hand and watch stuck in the disposal, he finally pulls out his hand without the watch. Yet when he's climbing down the fire escape, he's wearing it again.
Corrected entry: After Kimberly has blocked the on ramp with her 4x4 she is parked parallel with the traffic flow, yet the second truck demolishes her vehicle by hitting it full on, on the left hand side. If the 4x4 was hit on the left in its original position it would have been driven up the on ramp into the rest of the parked traffic.
Corrected entry: Final Destination ends one year after the plane crashed. That is the same day the second movie begins. But at the end of the first movie, there are still two people alive. So the second died between the two movies, when? If this isn't convincing: one of the victims, Rory, witnessed the death of the last victim shown in the first movie. How could he be in two places at the same time?
Corrected entry: If Death was working backwards through the order people would have died, Clear should have been last on the list to die, as she was the one who defied death first.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Kimberley has the premonition about the road crash, she had been driving on the highway for a while before the truck with the logs passed her, then subsequently crashed. However, back in reality, the log truck passed and crashed virtually right in front of them - within yards of the junction. If they had actually driven onto the highway when the lights turned green, they would have been miles ahead of the crash scene.
