Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
|Who has been helping Jigsaw all along?||Saw II
Amanda. Amanda and Daniel find Jonas' body with the bat when they're chased by Xavier and they wedge the bat between the wood floor and the door to save themselves. They find a trapdoor in the floor, outlined by Jonas' blood, so they move the safe and go inside. They use the key from the beginning and open the door. They follow a long hall closely followed by Xavier and they head into a bathroom; the same one from "Saw I". They close the door and turn on the lights to find the bodies of Zep and Adam (as well as Gordon's foot). Xavier makes it in and slices the number off the back of his neck. Daniel and Amanda fight him with the old hacksaw that Gordon used.
When Matthews arrives at the house, John gives him a key and he goes inside. The police arrive shortly after, and the police remaining at the factory can't see them on the cameras. In the basement, Matthews finds the dead bodies (including Xavier's) and a hand over the rim of the bathtub. When he looks inside, the pig mask pops out and someone stabs him with a syringe.
When the timer runs out, a safe opens in the factory and the police find Daniel safe inside (after all, he was in 'a safe and secure place'). Apparently, Matthews didn't talk to John long enough. It turns out that they weren't getting a live feed, and everything had happened hours earlier. Matthews wakes up in a room and finds a tape recorder. When it plays he hears Amanda's voice. She says that she met Jigsaw in prison (because she was wrongfully arrested by Matthews) and she started using drugs. She was Jigsaw's first 'player' in the game and she planned to follow in his footsteps by teaching life lessons. She slams the bathroom door and leaves him for dead.
|What number does Xavier find on the back of Gus' neck?||Saw II
2. This is what Jigsaw meant by saying that the clues are in the back of their minds. The numbers are colour-coded, so they know that the clue is 'somewhere over the rainbow'. When Xavier discovers this, he tries to kill Jonas. Jonas starts to win the fight, but he starts coughing up blood, and Xavier gets the chance to kill him with the nail bat. Meanwhile, Laura finds a picture with an X on it and they look behind it to find a picture of Matthews and Daniel. They all realize that Matthews and Daniel are father and son and that Matthews put them in jail by planting evidence. Laura starts convulsing on the floor and she dies while Addison goes off on her own.
|Who does Xavier throw into the needle pit?||Saw II
Amanda. The group comes across an unlocked door on the second floor, but it seems to be blocked. Xavier forces it open and a three minute timer starts on the door on the opposite side of the room. They find a tape for Xavier and play it and Jigsaw tells them about a key for the door. The key is under the bed in a pit full of syringes. Jigsaw does this because Xavier is a drug dealer and he gives hope to the desperate. With a minute left, Xavier throws Amanda into the pit and she digs around for the key in a very disturbing scene. She finds the key, but it's too late. The door locks less than a second later.
|What disease does John have?||Saw II
Cancer. Matthews continues to listen to John talk in order to ensure the safety of his son. John says that he appreciates things differently since he knows that the clock is ticking and he basically has a deadline before he meets his own demise. We also learn that Lawrence Gordon was John's oncologist (as shown in "Saw I"). Apparently, John tried to kill himself once by driving off a cliff, but he survived. His failed suicide attempt showed him that he was strong enough to survive many things, but not the cancer cells. This helped him decide to change his life and teach people lessons to help them appreciate life.
|Which 'player' of Jigsaw's game was responsible for capturing the others for Jigsaw?||Saw II
Obi. After Gus is killed, the door with the gun unlocks and opens, so the group leaves the main room. Xavier finds a bat with nails sticking out of it and picks it up and he tries breaking down a door that says 'exit' on it, but he finds steel bars behind it.
While Matthews negotiates with John (who tells him that Daniel will be safe if he sits and talks with him), he learns that Jigsaw only gouged jigsaw pieces out of his victims because those people were missing their survival instincts.
After this, Laura finds a door to the basement and the group investigates. They find a mannequin with a knife in its chest and a note to Obi with a tape. Jigsaw tells Obi that he can now redeem himself (because he burned everyone with lies and cons). There are two antidotes in the oven. One for himself and one for another person. They force Obi to go into the oven for kidnapping them and he gets the first antidote. When he pulls the second one down, the oven door shuts and the oven turns on. He tries to beat away the flames and the others break open a glass window in the oven, but it's no use. Obi cooks alive and the antidotes don't make it out.
|Where does Amanda find the first tape?||Saw II
In the wall. When Amanda wakes up in the house, she immediately knows who's responsible and searches around the room for the tape. When she finds it in the wall, she says that everything they'll need to know will be on the tape. When it's played, Jigsaw says that the doors to the house will open in three hours, but of course all of the people have only two hours to live because they're breathing in a deadly nerve agent. In order to prevent themselves from dying a horrible, painful death is to find an antidote (and there are many throughout the house). One antidote is in the safe, and the combination is in the back of their minds. Also with the tape is a key and a note saying "Do not attempt to use this key on the door to this room". Amanda knows better and tries to tell everyone, but they decide to try it anyways. While Xavier tries the key, Gus looks through the peephole. The key triggers a mechanism which fires a gun through the peephole.
|When the cops first look at the monitors at the steel factory, how much time is remaining on the timer?||Saw II
1:57. When they investigate John's hide-out, the police come across a table of TV screens hiding under a dropcloth. While watching them, Matthews finds his son sitting in the corner and John explains that he's in a house somewhere, and he will soon be breathing in a deadly toxin that will slowly deteriorate his body, causing him to bleed out of every orifice. He assures Matthews that Daniel is in a safe place, and the people in the house start waking up.
|What is the name of Detective Matthews' son?||Saw II
Daniel. Detective Matthews is concerned about his son because he continuously pickpockets and steals. When Matthews lets him go at the police station, he doesn't hear from him again until he finds John (Jigsaw) and discovers he's in the house. After letting Daniel go, Matthews investigates Michael's murder and finds a jigsaw mark on the body. When Matthews finds an emblem on the contraption, he sends a squad to the Wilson Steel Company, and they find John.
|What is the name of the death mask victim?||Saw II
Michael. In the beginning of the movie, we are shown that Jigsaw is still up to his old tricks. His first victim of the movie, Michael, is in a chair with a large device around his neck that resembles Amanda's bear trap in "Saw I". Using a make-up mirror, he is able to see his swollen eye and the deadly contraption he is in. Just then, a TV comes on and the friendly jigsaw puppet explains everything. He says that while some may think of Michael as a rat or a snitch, Jigsaw thinks he's unworthy. To get out of the trap, Michael has to sacrifice what he's used to do his horrible deeds. By cutting out his right eye with a scalpel in the room, he can get the key to open the trap (which was surgically placed into him two hours earlier). He attempts this, but the pain is too much, and the trap snaps shut.
|Who gets their hands and wrists sliced in the hand trap?||Saw II
Addison. Addison walks in a room and finds an antidote in a box. She is so weary that she doesn't see the lock and key on the other side of it and ends up getting her hands trapped. Xavier finds her and gets the number on the back of her neck. She is left to bleed to death.
|Who does Xavier throw into the pit of needles?||Saw II
Amanda. Xavier doesn't want to go in the needle pit, so he chooses someone to go for him. He sees Amanda and decides to make her go. Amanda finds the key, but she is too late.
|Who coined the name Jigsaw?||Saw II
the police and the press. After Detective Mathews meets John, he asks him why he likes to be called Jigsaw. John says that the police and the press coined his nickname and that he never wanted it. This is towards the middle of the movie.
|Does Amanda really freak out, for real, when she first wakes up?||Saw II
No. Amanda simply gets up when she felt the time was right. She has to pretend to be unconscious so no one would suspect anything of her. Amanda has to protect Daniel so that later, he can be found in a safe place.
|How many people are trapped in the room?||Saw II
8. The eight people trapped in the room are: Obi, Daniel, Xavier, Jonas, Addison, Laura, Gus, and Amanda. Gus is the first one to get killed. When Xavier puts the key in the door, a gun fires, shooting Gus in the head.
|What does the message that Jigsaw left on the ceiling for Detective Mathews say?||Saw II
Look Closer Detective Mathews. The message is on the ceiling of the room where Michael was killed by the death mask and can be seen a few minutes into the movie. Jigsaw wants Detective Mathews to take a closer look at the body to notice the company name on the death mask. Jigsaw has everything planned and wants to be found by the police.
|What is the name of Detective Mathews' son?||Saw II
Daniel. Jigsaw uses Daniel to test Detective Mathews, to see if he can remain calm while he knows that his son is in danger. The whole time Jigsaw is talking to Detective Mathews, Daniel is in a safe.
|At the beginning of the movie, what object is behind Michael's eye, that he must cut out in order to survive?||Saw II
key. Jigsaw has surgically placed a key behind Michael's eye, that will unlock the death mask. Michael has less than a minute to get the key out with a scalpel. Unfortunately, he does not make it.
Best Villain. Unfortunately, Tobin Bell did not win the award. At the Teen Choice Awards the movie was nominated for Choice Scream (Donnie Wahlberg) and Choice Trailer. The Directors Guild of Canada nominated it for Outstanding Sound Editing in a Feature Film. "Saw II" was nominated at other award shows as well.
|The promotional posters for "Saw II" had to been changed because the MPAA said that the severed fingers did not meet the guidelines. What does MPAA stand for?||"Saw II" Facts
Motion Picture Association of America. The MPAA has to approve every component of a movie, from the trailers to the promotional posters. The MPAA has to approve every movie that goes into theaters, which in 2006 was a total of 607 movies!
Toronto. Donnie Wahlberg (Detective Matthews) was able to go home to be with his wife and kids during production because it was so close. "Saw III" was also shot in Toronto and "Saw" was shot in LA.
t. It was a secret that her daughter let slip to the director/writer Darren Lynn Bousman. However, it wouldn't have affected filming because she didn't get any bigger in the entire 25 days the movie was shot!
|The script for "Saw II" was actually meant to be called something else. What was its name?||"Saw II" Facts
The Desperate. Darren Lynn Bousman wrote the original script, however it kept getting pushed away because it was considered to be too violent. However, the producers noticed that "Saw" was a big hit in the box offices and called Darren the next day to seal the deal.
Forget To Remember. Chad Gray, the lead singer of Mudvayne, wrote this song. The song was on Mudvayne's album, "Lost and Found". "Not Falling" was actually used in the movie "Ghost Ship".
Leigh Whannell/Darren Lynn Bousman. Leigh Whannell also played Adam in the "Saw" movies. He also was a co-writer for the first "Saw" and an Executive Producer for "Saw II". Darren Lynn Bousman was the director for "Saw III" also. Tobin Bell played Jigsaw and Glenn Plummer played Jonas. The rest of the men were executive producers.
Daniel. There is Xavier, who we have just seen get killed by Daniel with one of the saws from the first film. Also from the first film, are the bodies of Zep Hindle, the hospital orderly, and Adam, the photographer who was locked in with Dr. Lawrence Gordon.
Eric Matthews ends up here, after John finally declares "Game Over", and takes him there. He ends up in the bvathroom we have just seen Daniel and Amanda in, however we have just learnt that the whole thing was pre-recorded, so Amanda has long since taken Daniel out of there. Eric is then attacked and left there chained up by Amanda, but is still alive.
Jonas. Xavier originally has the key, but throws it down when it doesn't work in the door and causes Gus to be shot in the face. Jonas picks it up and Daniel retrieves it from his pocket when he and Amanda notice the trapdoor under the safe, in the room they started in.
Eric Matthews. All of them, excluding Daniel, have been set up in the past by Detective Matthews, in order for him to make a conviction. Daniel is of course his son. When the others find out about his connection to the detective from a photograph of the pair, hidden in a picture frame, Amanda helps him to get away from Xavier. We later find out that she is meant to help him survive, the test is not for Daniel to survive, but for Eric, and to see if he can follow the rules. Which, as we see by the end of the film, he does not.
Laura. Gus is shot when Xavier tries to unlock the door; Obi dies in the furnace; Addison dies from blood loss when her hands are trapped in the razor blade trap; Jonas is killed by Xavier hitting him on the back of the head with the baseball bat, because he wants the number from his neck, and Xavier dies when his throat is cut by Daniel. Amanda and Daniel both survive.
Laura. Whilst Jonas, Addison and Xavier are all arguing about being in prison, Laura is looking round the house for ways of escape. She comes to a panel in one of the walls and finds a hidden door, leading down into the basement. This is where Obi's secret is discovered, and where the furnace for his challenge is situated.
|Victims are found with a piece of flesh missing, in the shape of a jigsaw puzzle piece. According to the Jigsaw Killer, what does this represent?
||"Saw II" - Let's Play Again
A missing piece of human instinct. "It is a symbol that that subject was missing something, a vital piece of the human puzzle...the survival instinct." Not, as Detective Matthews suggests, to represent his nickname of the Jigsaw Killer. This, John tells us, is a name made up by the police and journalists.
For him to listen to him. Jigsaw: "Sit here and talk to me. Listen to me. If you do that for long enough, you will find your son in a safe place."
If Eric had just listened to John, and sat with him until the timer ran out, he would see, as we do, next to John there is a safe which opens, and Daniel is inside, alive, with an oxygen mask on. Unfortunately this is not the case as Eric cannot take anymore and attacks John. He makes John take him to where he thinks his son is being held.
