(at around 14 mins) When the SWAT team have their guns aimed at Jigsaw's heart (just after Matthews says "Hey - is this close enough?", we can see three laser guides on his chest.

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.
