    A reviewer

    "Saw" was one of those brilliant masterpieces that didn't need a sequel "like "A Nightmare on Elm Street"", but that doesn't mean that this movie isn't worth watching. "Saw II" features a very complex perdicament for the eight protagonist while concurrently providing backstory for Jigsaw straight from the man himself, and both plot devices, while genius, could have used some work. The characters locked in the sarin-filled house, for one, needed some fleshing out, and less time should have been spent on Jigsaw's borderline-emo prattling and more on the traps. Which leads me to my positive points: the traps of this movie were all chillingly cunning. From the complex opening one "ouch!" to the simple "nothing really beats fear of fire or needles", the few minutes of horror scattered throughout are top-rate. The acting was better than that of its predecessor, and the twist ending comes very close to rivalling "Saw"'s. One other complaint was that the structure was too complicated, with characters falling victim other characters' traps. A little simplicity would have helped, just have everybody die in their own traps and call it a movie. "Saw II" is still a good follow-up, though, and I recommend watching it, even if you agree that the original would be better as a stand-alone.

    For a good twist and scare check this out

    I had just recently checked out saw 2. WOW. The twists and plots were outstanding It totally blew me away. But with all films of the horror genre alot of the times things become a bit too predictable. As much as I was impressed I was also...well you get the point. I would like to see a film where I would be things would'nt be so ...well predictable. I've seen tons of horror movies and can say without argument that Saw 2 is probably one of the best. Ever.
