We gave it a C-

Another day, another herd of victims to torture in a dank house rigged with booby traps. So it goes for Jigsaw (Tobin Bell), the serial killer from 2004’s Saw who preys on those he thinks short on morals. In Saw II, he’s after a corrupt cop (Donnie Wahlberg).

EXTRAS include an excruciating faux doc about the killings. In a making-of, Wahlberg explains, ”It’s got to make you go, ‘Oh, s—!”’ We’re guessing he means the twist ending, not the realization that you forked over cash for a two-disc set that’s no better than last winter’s original release.
