While Urban Legends: Final Cut is not nearly as terrifying or inventive as its predecessor, the film does offer up a fairly suspenseful whodunit that fans of the teen-horror genre will likely appreciate. Amy Mayfield, the film's heroine (played by fresh-faced Jennifer Morrison), the daughter of an Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker, is trying to make a name for herself at Alpine University, "the greatest film school that ever existed". Along with several other students she is competing for the coveted Hitchcock award, which virtually guarantees the winner a successful career in Hollywood. When the film school's resident genius and likely winner of the award is found dead, suspicions arise. As other film students are killed off one by one, everyone becomes a suspect. Would someone kill to win the prestigious award? While striving to be Hitchcockian in theme (as evidenced by its multiple references to the director himself), the film never quite moves beyond cliché. Many scenes are a little too reminiscent of other popular teen-horror flicks such as Scream (the anonymous masked killer, though not nearly as frightening), The Blair Witch Project (Amy is chased through desolate woods by her stalker), and Friday the 13th (Amy hides from the killer in a lake setting eerily similar to the one where Jason lurked so many years ago). These elements seem just a little worn out. Morrison gives a serviceable performance, and Loretta Devine, from the original Urban Legend, adds humour as a Foxy Brown-worshiping security guard. The film manages to keep you guessing until its conclusion, and a sequence set in an abandoned amusement park is truly creepy. But ultimately Urban Legends: Final Cut lacks the originality to make a name for itself among the many films of its genre. --Mindy Ruehmann, Amazon.comSee all Product Description

The novelty value has gone, in this 2000 sequel, so the film seems a little slower than the first and -other then the first murder, there seems to be less 'slash & gore'. Don't get me wrong, this is probably better written than the first but it seems to follow the same basic story arc, only with different murders and settings [lose a *]. It also plays very similar to Scream 3 which was released 7 months earlier [lose another *].
This single disc opens to a main menu featuring much the same bonus material as the first film; Language [German or English], subtitles [reduced to 8 European] scene selection, Extra features [trailer, behind the scenes, commentary, making of & talent profiles] and Play.
The film is entertaining but plays like a remake of the first so many will be disappointed. Personally, I still enjoyed it, but although it should get a *** I'm going to give it a grudging **** as it does have some good moments and was entertaining.
The storyline is almost exactly the same, a killer doing Urban Legends on campus. Its not as fast paced or interesting as the first, the acting is good with Jennifer Morrison as the lead. I think it has some good parts but has a lot of deaths that are similar to other films of its genre.
This is a good film, worth having if you enjoyed the first Urban Legends film.
She needs help to complete her thesis on Pendleton's 'urban legends' theme for Professor Solomon's film class.
After the volunteers fall victim one by one to new urban legend-copycat-killings, both desperately dig for the truth to save themselves and hopefully their friends, all suspect as well as staff...
Did we need a sequel to the original? I don't think so.
But, even though it'ss one of the most pointless horrors going, it's really good for a comedy.
devoid of any scares or ability have any element of fear in the film, we have to rely on the (some) now famous faces to provide something else other than scares. And they sort of give us what we want.
The main story is like some watered down version of Scream 3 (a film that isn't very good either). Now while that movie takes itself very seriously, this thankfully doesn't.
I don't know whether it was the makers intentions, but everybody has an 'evil' look about them during one scene in the film. It happens that much, that you really have no idea who the killer is until the big reveal at the end.
So all in all, as a horror movie, it stinks, as a sequel, it stinks.
As a diverting piece of humour it works, and for some reason, it's ever so surreal.
This is an above average slasher movie with a reasonably good cast. The only problem I had with this movie was that, with the exception of the first death (which was also the best and the only gory in one in the movie), I hadn't actually heard of any of the "urban legends" before. This didnt't really spoil the movie but I just thought I'd warn people in case you were dissapointed by this.
As well as horror this movie also managed some humour which I usually like in a horror movie.
The DVD has:
>Making-of and Behind-the-Scenes Featurette
Overall an enjoyable movie which I recommend for fans of horror
Part 2 was the best among 3.
Part 3 has completely nothing to do with the first 2, great actresses but might due to the low budget, or the director, so it turns out a bit crap. Could have been better, one thing worth mentioning, the theme song "I Will Always Be There" by Niki Harris (friend and backing vocalist for Madonna) was good.
In terms of the horror quotient, I would not classify this movie as particularly scary. There is a masked killer chasing people down and killing them, but there's nothing here to make you jump out of your seat. The special effects are pretty good, and there is a nice variety to be found in the manner of the murders (which does include one beheading, which is something no horror film should be without). The movie has its lighter side, as well, obviously not taking itself too seriously.Read more ›
