Our Score
OK, so the novelty has slightly worn off, but Darren Lynn Bousman's sequel is just as deliciously twisted, fiendishly clever and gruesomely gory as the first life-or-death-game instalment. Eight people imprisoned in a booby-trapped slum by Jigsaw (a remarkable Tobin Bell) must discover their association to unlock the antidote to a poison gas that's gradually killing them. The son of burnt-out detective Donnie Wahlberg is one of the victims, but Wahlberg apprehending Bell's cancer-ridden madman turns out to be just another devious part of a much grander master plan. This movie connects neatly to its unnerving predecessor in cunningly wicked ways - once more it's the imaginatively brutal torture contraptions and diabolical demises that delight and disturb. Guns, syringes and razor blades are among the instruments of pain contained within the pulse-pounding set pieces that this nascent fear franchise has made its own.


The sinister criminal Jigsaw is preparing to mete out his deranged and sadistic form of justice on more hapless victims. Meanwhile, a cop is desperately searching for the madman and the gruesome prison where he is holding eight terrified strangers. Horror sequel, starring Tobin Bell, Donnie Wahlberg, Shawnee Smith and Franky G.
