A little more then an hour of gore, blood and dismembering so if that's what you are looking for don't miss this. I say C-
19 February 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"You're not strong enough, you're never gonna make it." Arkin (Stewart) escapes from The Collector's house and is going to the hospital trying to recover, before he can get there he is once again abducted and is forced to help a wealthy man rescue his daughter from yet another booby trapped house. Can Arkin survive another round of hell? I will admit that I did like the Saw series, but because of the actual story line and not because of the huge amounts of gore, although I will say that did add to the story. The Collector was trying so hard to be Saw but never quite got there. I'm not sure why they made a sequel but I sat down to watch. While this one had much more gore and many more people being cut up it was essentially the same movie as the first one. I realize people that watch these aren't in it for the plot, but there needs to be some difference to warrant a sequel I think. On the other hand this movie is pretty much just made for people who love gore so I could be wrong. Overall, a little over an hour of blood and dismembering, so if you are into that then this is for you. I give it a C-.
