Saw II is a 2005 American horror film directed by Darren Lynn Bousman and written by Leigh Whannell and Bousman. It is the second installment in the Saw franchise. The film stars Donnie Wahlberg, Franky G, Dina Meyer, Shawnee Smith, and Tobin Bell. The film features Jigsaw being apprehended by the police, but trapping detective Eric Matthews in one of his own games while showing another game of eight people — including the his son Daniel — in progress on TV monitors at another location. The film also explores some of John Kramer's backstory, providing a partial explanation of his reason for becoming Jigsaw. A sequel, titled Saw III, was released in 2006.
In addition to the DVD bonus material was included a short film named The Scott Tibbs Documentary directed by Kelly Lynn Pancho. This is a pseudo-documentary, taking place during and shortly after the events of the film. The documentary focuses on Adam's best friend and frontman of rock band Scott Tibbs (Zach Starr), who decides to film a documentary about the Jigsaw.
The following weapons were used in the film Saw II:
One of the police officers who arrived to detain Jigsaw at Wilson Steel Plant holds what appears to be a Glock 17. The same guns are also seen in SWAT officer's holsters.
One of the police officers who arrived to detain Jigsaw at Wilson Steel Plant holds what appears to be a Glock 19.
A Ruger GP100 is used in a "Magnum Eyehole" trap in the first half of the film. The trap consistes of a metal contraption with mounted revolver, which was mounted to a door. Its barrel aimes directly at the door's peephole, and the trigger connected to a chain and a pulley, which in turn were connected to the lock of the door. When Xavier Chavez (Franky G) turns the key in the lock of a door and Gus (Tony Nappo) gets shot in the head as he looks through the peephole. Later, Xavier, Jonas (Glenn Plummer) and Amanda Young (Shawnee Smith) examine the device of the trap and revolver. In the final act, Amanda and Daniel Matthews (Erik Knudsen), hiding from Xavier, came back to the safe room where they saw the revolver again.
Detective Allison Kerry (Dina Meyer) carries a SIG-Sauer P226 as her sidearm throughout the movie. Like Eric, she pulls a pistol from her holster when the first SWAT group is trapped in Electrified Staircase. She also uses the pistol several times inside the building, most notably when the time of the game comes out and the mysterious safe opens.
Smith & Wesson 5946
Detective Eric Matthews (Donnie Wahlberg) carries a Smith & Wesson 5946 as his service weapon throughout the film. For the first time a pistol is seen in holster at his home. After arriving from the place where Michael Marks' game takes place to the police station, Eric puts the holster with the gun on the table. He pulls a pistol from his holster when the first SWAT team storm Wilson Steel Plant, and then takes aim, removing cloth from the monitors. However, when it seems that Jigsaw (Tobin Bell) has already been arrested, it turns out that the detective have to play another game. So he puts out the gun and speaks to the killer. Later, when Eric's nerves begin to fail, he takes the gun and threatens Jigsaw, beating him. Arriving at the Nerve Gas House, Matthews holds a pistol at the ready, but loses it after being attacked by a Pig Mask Man.
Smith & Wesson Model 10
What appears to be a Smith & Wesson Model 10 is seen in the paper with photographs of evidence.
Heckler & Koch MP5A3
The SWAT team members, including Daniel Rigg (Lyriq Bent), Joe (Vincent Rother), and Pete Baker (Kelly Jones), are armed with Heckler & Koch MP5A3s with SEF trigger group during the assault on Jigsaw's hideout in Wilson Steel Plant. The first time it is seen when the first assault team storms the building and falls into a trap. However, they manage to surround Kramer, and after that, throughout the rest of the film, officers constantly appear with submachine guns in the background. At the end, the SWAT group led by Rigg drives to the Nerve Gas House, where they use their MP5s again.
Several SWAT officers armed with newer Heckler & Koch MP5A3s with Navy trigger group. Due to a continuity error, Rigg's MP5 with SEF trigger group turns into MP5 with Navy trigger group, which he uses until the end of the film.
Several pictures with pistols are visible on the map in the police station after arriving from the place where Michael Marks' game takes place.
