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.

If you've bought into the Saw movies, II ups the violence without totally jumping the shark, and is a worthy follow-up to 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.

While Saw II isn't as good technically as its predecessor, its many clever twists, and exploration of Jigsaw's mind make the second entry a fun guilty pleasure watch.

In a fun house like this the elaborate tortures seem to leave behind the real world of pain and suffering for the realm of slapstick; they're the kind of horrors that make you scream and laugh at the same time.

Saw II only has one ambition -- to make us squirm. And it does. Just don't be surprised if you need to switch to an electric razor after this.

Wesley Lovell

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

Quite possibly Saw II sheds enough blood to satisfy horror aficionados.

John Anderson

Saw II -- better-acted than its predecessor, which isn't saying much -- is so gratuitously, sadistically violent, and to such little end, that it finally falls over dead on the far side of obscene.

Felix Vasquez Jr.
Cinema Crazed

In every way superior to its predecessor in terms of performances, story, characterization, gore, and climax.

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

I suppose that I am watching this for the sake of continuity.

After watching Saw 1, I was pleasantly suprised and was desperate to watch Saw 2, then go through all of them in order. That plan did fall through, but I did… More

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
