Movie Review: Saw II

This is probably one of my favorite Saw moves. I like the first three of the franchise the best because I think they have the best story lines in my opinion. This film doesn’t have the best gore or the best traps, but the story is really the best part of this movie. Don’t get me wrong, the gore and the traps are the best parts of Saw IV-VI, but they lack a real story and dialogue.

If you watch the whole franchise, the movies reveal a little bit about Jigsaw in each film. This film, in my opinion, gives you more background on the games and tapes aspect of the film. Amanda, who has played the game before, is aware of Jigsaw’s nuances and quirks. She knows what to look for when the others are clueless. Jigsaw is a predictable serial killer, and you would think the people that were kidnapped would use that to their advantage, but you’d be wrong. I’ll give the characters a little bit of credit since it’s only the second movie, but they never seem to catch on in the later films.

I liked this film because Donnie Wahlberg, who plays Detective Matthews, and he actually does a great job acting in this movie. The plot basically revolves around him because every person that was kidnapped was set up by Detective Matthews and they were sent to jail because of evidence that he planted. That’s not really a spoiler because it’s not a pivotal part of the plot.

I liked the twist ending; I wasn’t expecting it when I saw this film the first time and I still think it’s a good ending even after watching it a few times. Normally, horror films don’t always have the best endings, but this one was satisfying to say the least.

My score: 7/10
