I find Saw 2 almost as great as the first Saw based on a few things.
Saw 2: A detective and his team must rescue eight people trapped in a factory by the twisted serial killer known as Jigsaw.
I really like the concept of a group of people trapped in a house, having to go through traps in order to find something they need to survive. I also like the clever clues and the hidden messages in every tape. The mix of different characters are good.
Saw 2 opens up with my favorite trap of all the Saw movies, the Venus Flytrap. The other traps in Saw 2 are great aswell and the box with the wrist cutters is also a favorite of mine. The lighting in this one is also very good, the green/yellow light is perfect for the setting and the mood of the film. I also enjoyed the ending and I thought that is was very clever made.
Grading: 9 out of 10.
