Saw 2

Welcome to what has now become Movie Week here at Mordant Orange! For the last few months my movie watching habits have sagged a little. It might be because of my schedule or that there hasn't been that much great stuff out there to watch. But as you can tell I seem to back in full swing of movie watching.

I went and saw SAW II as a result of being shut out for Just Friends. I really enjoyed the original Saw but I was curious to see how they would overcome the fact that everyone knows the hook from the first movie that made it so great.

Saw II doesn't quite live up to its predecessor. It has its fair share of twists but I was disappointed with the majority of the action that takes place in the house. I could've done with out the chase and gore sequence of the drug dealer chasing everyone in the house and more of the mind puzzles that Jigsaw uses to give people a chance to save themselves.

If you haven't seen it already you're probably not going to run out and watch it anyway. Do yourself a favor and rent it when it comes out on DVD.
