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

A Reloaded style one-up in which more people are trapped in bigger places and forced to perform scarier tasks with nastier results. Wow.

Quite hideous.

The ornate sadism isn't enough to carry our interest this time around.

Ultimately uninteresting.

The slaughter in Saw II is pretty much non-stop, but you always see it coming. The movie's not really that scary, just gross in what by now is a fairly routine way.

It's an unpleasant film with grotesque imagery, but Nine Inch Nails' "Closer" video is more unsettling than this mostly predictable bloodbath.

Saw II is a nasty piece of work ...

Saw II feels like an episode of Fear Factor or Big Brother with Rob Zombie at the helm, and if that doesn't scare you away from this ridiculous movie, well, feel free to indulge your questionable tastes.

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.

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.

[Jigsaw] is like John Keating from Dead Poet's Society, if Keating used hypodermic needles and hacksaws instead of Walt Whitman.

It's not slick, it's not empowering, and it's not pretty. But what it does -- efficiently exploiting our primal fears -- it does pretty well.

Saw II is pure schlock, which was clearly the intention: grimy grainy photography, flashbacks that strike like lightning bolts, plot holes galore and no jokes to speak of.
