Noel Penaflor’s review published on Letterboxd:
My favorite of the Saw sequels, which isn't saying much since most of them are unintentional comedies.
Uses the formula before the formula got really hackneyed 1 movie later.
Since you know where all the scares are coming from, the only real creativity comes from the kills. Again, that's not saying much.
I'll always remember this as the one with the New Kid on the Block, as nothing in the rest of this movie is really worth remembering.
You already know what you're getting into. But at least it's not Saws 3-19.
