Consensus: Saw II is likely to please the gore-happy fans of the original, though it may be too gruesome for those not familiar with first film's premise.

The film doesn't take the direction most sequels do and manages to adequately follow up the original.

As it was in the first Saw, audiences are faced with insane leaps in logic that sabotage the last part of the film.

Saw II has teeth, and this house-of-horrors franchise has legs, though they're manacled to the radiator.

Not as good as the original but nowhere near as good as the third, this movie left a bad taste in my mouth. The characters were flat and forgettable, with most… More

Saw 2 is the sequel to the incredible first installment, and to be honest I was sort of dissapointed. The plot of the film was not even close to the twists and… More
