Syringes. That's all I remember and all I have to. If a movie is made with the sole purpose to make you squirm and it delivers, is it a good movie? This movie stands to prove that no, it isn't.

Truly a prefect sequel to it's original it incorporates the formula that made the first one so well liked into an all new scenerio, display that the series was finally realizing itself and what it was trying to accomplish.

Plenty of brutality and gore with absolutely nothing else to back it up. It's much more uninspired and makes no other improvements from the first film while also lacking the inspired idea of the original that made it half decent. The plotline remains just about adequate, but the film relies substancially on the success of its predecessor.

I was always a fan of the scenes between Tobin Bell and Donnie Wahlberg in this movie, as both are underrated actors. Bell in particular is very impressive as he brings a lot of menace to the Jigsaw character. Unofrtunately, everything else in this movie just really doesn't work. It lacks the creativity of the first one, and the violence feels tacked on and uneccesary. A disappointing sequel, and a good clue to the crap that was to come.

Not sure how to give this a numerical rating, as it fulfills its duty to keep you watching for the length of the movie and creeps you out and makes you think how much it would suck to be one of them. But it's also really only worth it the first time you watch it. I like the Saw series, but more as guilty pleasures of horror movies with a bit of a point.

loses some of the intensity and feeling of isolation from the first movie when there are more victims together. Has more in common with movies like Cube and The Collection. I actually liked the twists, but it follows the rule of sequels diminishing in quality for each iteration.

Saw continues to breathe life into the horror/suspense genre with this (dare I say it) improvement on the first installment. With enough plot twists to give you whiplash, and some truly seedy characters, this is definitely a must own movie for horror fans.

The sequel to Saw, Saw 2 captures the excellent atmosphere, twists, and even the relatively uninspiring acting of its' predecessor and improves on almost all of it. While it is not nessecary to watch Saw1, you won't be able to truly appreciate Saw 2 until you do and it will spoil most of Saw 1's plot. A great suspense/horror film amongst a muddy lake.

Wow! A sequal that is as good, if not better, than the orignal. You don't get that very often, but Saw 2 is an awsome example. Once again a brilliant storyline from Leigh Whannell and James Wan. Original "games" and deaths, and also some background story on Jigsaw....which is very good. If you liked the first then you HAVE to see this one!

When tobin bell isn't on screen the film is bland. He is so intense and quietly nuanced as jigsaw all of his scenes are gripping. The drama and gore that play out in the house are pretty standard horror even in 05 but not atrocious(speaking as a genre fan that is). Not as intimate as the original but it still has a sense of mystery and the twist at the end is a good payoff.

A tolerable, second-rate sequel with not much to add to the franchise, except more bloodshed and mystery. It was fairly enjoyable and the ending tied things up nicely. That's what I like about how they end both Saw movies. Sort of a recap of everything explaining it in a trailer-like montage. Though the acting leaves for something more.

I guess this movie was alright. It seemed as if I expected the twist at the end after watching the first.. I just wasn't that impressed by this movie. The first movie did more and was a better movie with a lower budget and fewer stars.. I don't know if would be interested in seeing a third in this series. It's worth a watch if you are a horror fan.. Although its more of a thriller.

The premise of Saw II is rather interesting and actually kept me entertained for the most part. Though I've put off watching the franchise because of how bad I know it gets, Saw II survives the cut on pure interest factor. Yeah, the acting sucks and the editing is mind numbingly edgy, but I still kinda liked it.

Having never actually seen this one(for some reason I skipped this one)when the twist hit I was genuinely surprised. The needle pit scene is arguably one of the most unnerving scene I've ever seen. There's a certain bleakness to the puzzle that Amanda creates where multiple people are pawns in a game(lol) to fuck over one man as more of a revenge fantasy than a lesson teaching. I dunno I'm thinking too much about Saw 2

Yet another pointless sequel to a mediocre original. This film is the original film, with new actors and worse set-ups. They even added the whole Lifetime scenario with the killer having terminal cancer. This film is the perfect example of why motion pictures today lack all creativity and substance.

Yeah I'm doing it. I think the fact everybody is so bad at the puzzles is funny. I guess it sorts of take away from the traps if people don't need those to end up dead though, but the second of a series can do whatever it wants, it didn't have the expectations of being only about traps back then

Effectively tense and horrific, but also horrifically idiotic and banal in every conceivable way. It took until the aughties for "torture porn" to become a fad and for the graphic horror genre to finally draw big production money from the studios. Sadly, like everything highly commercialized in America, this resulted in just really slick stinkers like this.

It's not entirely horrible, but it certainly isn't very good. Loses the intriguing premise of the first film in favor of two pretty longwinded plots, none of which I found myself caring that much about. The end twist is hilariously predictable and it all comes together horribly with things making less sense even as they are being explained. It does star Mark Wahlberg's brother though, so it's almost funny for that reason alone.

After marathoning the seven original Saw movies, I can say that this one was my favorite (even over the original): the expanded presence of Tobin Bell's jigsaw makes for one hell of a charismatic mastermind villain, it has the most natural and compelling blending of the police investigation with the death game, it has one of the best twists, and the death game itself is satisfyingly horrific without becoming overly exploitative.

Better than the first but still suffers from piss-poor plotting, where characters suddenly have flashbacks to previously unseen events every time they need to resolve a situation. The supposed twist of the real killer's identity was painfully obvious after the whole "likes to be in the trap" setup of the original. And on the needle pit, possibly one of the most sickening scenes in recent movie history, and this is a definite miss.

Going in to the film not expecting much, I was actually enjoying the movie until the twist at the end. Not saying the acting was good or anything like that but it was acceptable. The end ruined it. A movie that is part of a series of movies should be able to stand on its own. This one didn't.

Considerably stupider than the first installment, but somewhat more watchable. Now that I think about it, that makes sense. I always assumed the draw for these things was visceral gore but I'm still not seeing anything too remarkable; I guess the real draw is mind-numbingly obvious plot twists where you have the diagram drawn for you at the end anyway. God help me I might just slough through the rest of this series.

Too early to introduce an apprentice - as we get some backstory on how Jigsaw was 'born' - but at least Amanda makes the case for an interesting character (syringe pool is cool). It works mostly as an expanded version of the first - self-contained space with traps, now 8 participants, lot of exposition left for last - and it definitely feels as sadistic as moralistic -- Jigsaw doesn't 'kill', just punishes people who hate/waste life (again, Seven-style). At least a dirty cop is on the line.

Definitely lacks the unique and disturbing flare of the first, but I do like it more than some people. You can tell Donnie Wahlberg is having fun with this and he does make most of his scenes a little more entertaining. The "characters" or more so bodies used at the expense of the game are fine, and two of them are semi decent, but overall you still don't really care. The traps and gore are still interesting, and do give the movie a bump. It's definitely a solid sequel.
