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.

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 deepens the series' mythology without desperately over-extending itself... In fact, it's one of the better second entries from any big-hitter horror franchise.

To enjoy Saw II, one must have enjoyed Saw. This is a given. As to which is better, this is a fairly pointless question given how bad both of these movies are.

More blood and more gore, but less imagination than last year's rather goofy original.

This macabre follow-up to 2004's low-budget horror smash can't rival its predecessor's fiendish ingenuity. But it makes up for it with a deliciously devious plot and enough gory shocks for a dozen Halloweens.

Unable to deliver the single novel concept or unexpected surprise that might justify its existence.

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.

Just as fascinating as the first Saw movie, this sequel works as an ingenious labyrinth of horrors, full of more gruesome and densely macabre scenes - and once… 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

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

I didn't think they could do a sequal so diffrent from the first one...but still this good. And the twist at the end....I don't see how it could be… 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
