Saw II (DVD)
Advantages: An excellent immediate follow on, the 2nd in the story
Disadvantages: This has more moments to make you squirm
As mentioned previously, These 5 films all link together well. They are all set around the same time, and all add to the storyline of each other. This tells the next chapter of the story, where the next cop on the track of Jigsaw, manages to track him down with his team, only to find out his son is there on a screen in front of him, in a house filled with crooks he put away in the previous years.
Jigsaw as usual has everything mapped out. He gives the cop an instruction which will save himself and his son. Can the cop follow this instruction? Meanwhile there he is watching the TV, watching all these crooks and his son be tested, in order to try and escape the house, to try and escape their poisoning? Is everything as it seems? Will the cop rescue his son? Will they catch the Jigsaw? You'll have to watch to find out.
This movie is set to follow on pretty much immediately from the first. We now start to discover who the Jigsaw is and what he is all about. There is far more gore and cringe worthy moments in this one. Questions you were left wondering from the first start to get answered, new questions arise. The overall story starts making more sense but there is clearly lots more left to be told.
This movie can be watched on its own, and it will make sense, but it will always make more sense with the other movies. This is definitely one to watch an excellent movie.
Summary: You must watch this movie, especially straight after the first
