He then has to go through numerous, deadly traps in order to retrieve his long lost son, who is also a drug addict, including throwing a man off a ledge for his own survival. The movie had one of the best openings that i have seen in a long time. Joseph leaves the player and Michael is led to a factory, where the next victim is. Joseph also kills Sarah in a train station, but is later killed himself by Michael. Michael also sees Jennings Foster, a forensics specialist who was a survivor of the first Saw game. The tag line says it all: Oh yes, there will be blood! I wasn't used to hear people applauding at the theater and it created some kind of psycho ambiance in the room that I kinda really enjoyed.
It was also revealed that David Tapp, Michael's father, discovered this operation while chasing Jigsaw but was more interested in pursuing him rather than corrupt cops. In the factory, Henry attacks Michael to silence him but Michael escapes. Off course, there was some magic that night, considering the fact that there were hundreds of horror fans expecting a gory sequel to the Saw installment and they got served! Michael continues through the hotel, traversing traps, and rescuing a pedophile named Zeke. The sadistic approach of the Jigsaw killer is still pretty impressive! Without stating any spoilers, let me confirm that the movie is packed with bloody action and gore at its best. Just when things start to come together there is another twist to leave the viewer on the edge of their seat for what may come next. This was one of them. It is revealed she was smuggling drugs from the hospital to sell illegally.
He sees Chief of Police Henry Jacobs, a detective named Joseph, and David Tapp's reclusive neighbor Sarah. This movie has just mad a quantum leap in horror films. Few movies keep me on the edge of my seat. Immediately afterwards, Michael finds Chief of Police Henry Jacobs in a trap because of being corrupt and selling drugs on the streets. Like Saw, this sequel is more than a little bloody in some places, but that's to be understood. From the start until the end, you'll be given puzzling situation in which you wouldn't like to be part of at any time in your life. .
After being abandoned by another victim, Solomon Bates, Michael is given another chance. In fact, there's virtually nowhere in this film, where you can say that you've got it figured out. It is rare to see a sequel that beats its predecessor but in this case, it does! Without telling you more, go watch it with some friends that will be able to tolerate blood in gallons and you'll be served! Upon being freed, Sarah flees and Michael continues through the hotel to save his next victim. Upon being saved, Henry pretends to be grateful but later meets up with another corrupt policeman, Joseph Poltzer, who together decide to kill Michael because he learned about their drug smuggling operation. Near the end of the movie, the twisted game gets even more spicy.
Before Joseph can confront Michael, however, he is kidnapped by Pighead and is forced into a vise-trap which Michael must save him from. Upon being saved by Michael, Bates reveals that Henry Jacobs, Joseph Poltzer, Sarah Blalock, Carla Song, and himself were all part of a large drug operation. After Campbell's sections, the game then cuts to Michael Tapp at his father's apartment after his suicide. Without seeming to give everything away the movie was made to give it all away, but no one can catch all the clues because they have been pulled so deep into the movie. It features David Tapp's son, Michael, as the new protagonist as he searches for clues behind his father's death.
He next saves Carla Song, a hospital intern from the first Saw film, from an elevator trap which would rip her in half. In doing so, Michael becomes a target of the Jigsaw Killer and his mysterious apprentice wearing a Pighead costume. Those who liked the Jigsaw's strategy of allowing him the chance of survival to its victims by giving them a puzzle to solve, this time it goes even further. Solomon is pushed into a pit of needles by Pighead and never seen again. Along the way, Carla is murdered by Henry to eliminate loose ends, while Henry is later killed by Pighead while Michael witnesses. Before finding his son, the player is forced to choose either sacrificing Campbell for the sake of a stranger, or saving himself. Bates altered finances and forged books to cover for a larger group of criminals.
The first victim Michael must save is a college student named Griff whom his father arrested for raping his professor. Michael then saves Sarah Blalock who he met earlier but turns out to be a drug addict from being drowned in a glass case. It was never promoted as a walk in the park. After killing Joseph, Michael sees and chases Jigsaw to a room where it is revealed that Campbell, the man from the beginning, has chosen Michael's fate by either sacrificing or saving himself. And this movie left more than a few folks in the audience waiting for another sequel.
The first Saw really through me through some spins and caught me off guard for originality, Saw 2 is leagues above the first. Michael is then kidnapped by Pighead and forced to play Jigsaw's game in order to investigate his father's death. If you're in the mood for a thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seat, this is worth a try. Saw 2 runs with the same game based theme as the first, with clues for both the characters and the audience about what might happen next, but it takes the game to a completely different level. With a great blend of suspense, acting, and oh yes there was a lot of blood. I highly recommend this one.
The files, in which David admitted that his raid on Jigsaw's lair was without a warrant, was used as grounds by the corrupt Henry Jacobs to fire David to cover up his drug ring. Michael also admits to stealing his father's files on Jigsaw, and using the files to advance his reporting career. Michael's last victim is Solomon Bates, the third partner of John Kramer and Art Blank. There was no one dozing off during this flick. . .
