When detective Eric Matthews is called to a crime scene of a victim of Jigsaw, he finds a lead to the place where he is hidden. Once there, he realizes that Jigsaw trapped his son Daniel Matthews with three women and four men in a shelter, and they are inhaling a lethal nerve gas. If they do not use an antidote within two hours, they will die. Eric follows with increasing desperation the death of each member of the group in monitors, while trying to convince Jigsaw to release his son. Written by

The key hidden inside the needle pit would open the steel door in the room. Although most of the audience believe that it would lead to the exit, the director confirmed in the commentary that it would reveal two more syringes with antidote. See more »
(at around 50 mins) When Xavier opens the door to the Syringe Pit, it shows a very short clip showing the timer on the door for the antidote. If you slow the clip down, you will see that the timer shows '4:00', in the next scene it shows '2:58'. See more »
Saw II is everything Saw 1 should have been .. and more!
I just got back from the midnight screening of the film and I must say -- It was an OK movie.
Most of all the cool "deaths" were already shown in either clips or on television... but the main highlight of the movie was the conversation between Eric Mathews and Jigsaw himself. You find out a lot more about him then what you think. You find out what makes him tick. Of course, it's not as Gory as what people are telling you, it's just a marketing scam.. However, there IS much more blood then Saw 1.
The ending... Grabs you by the hair and kicks you square in the nuts!.
And you know when they said they'd revisit some "old friends?" oh yes.. they do :) Darren Bousman definitely has a film career on his hands and I hope he goes far with it because the man has talent.
I can clearly see SAW becoming the next "Horror" franchise.
