Saw II * * *

Who? Themos, Frankie, Dimitri
Where? Arclight Dome

The first Saw was a unique experience: Original, relentless, freaky. The 2nd Saw I don't think it as good, but it comes pretty close. I like this series because there isn't some magical monster that just wants to kill until it is killed. Here there is always a good reason for killing, and the killing itself is always interesting. I also like the fact that the bad guy has never killed anyone directly; only inderictly he forces people to perform badly. Saw is a movie with interesting story, dynamic direction and people that we care for some reason whether they will be killed or not. Thumbs up.
