SAW II (Theatrical Release USA 2005)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Saw II
—while not quite as good as the original Saw movie—maintains intensity and begs for a sequel. Donnie Wahlberg portrays policeman Eric Matthews to perfection. The film contains a higher level of graphic gore than its prequel with more realistic deaths. It’s a high-end thriller/horror film.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. The film performs for an adult audience. This film has the chutzpah to make a strong shove to establish itself as one of the best in the horror/thriller genre.
