Saw II

Saw II ★★★

Does way more than it has to for a sequel. The traps are very disturbing, the clock is constantly ticking and honestly, the acting is pretty good for the most part all things considered.

It's also really, really fucking stupid. Good by horror movie sequel standards, but even then, it just ends up leading to the dumber elements the series fell into.

That said, I still had a good time. As a kid, this was my favorite one next to the first and after a decade, my opinion hasn't changed.

As much as I hate this series, I admire its dedication to practical effects. I remember seeing a lot of behind-the-scenes videos on the old DVD as a ten year old kid. There's stuff to appreciate here, but overall it's not great.
