|Yep, it's here, the sequel no one was waiting for.|
I'll say one thing for "The Collection", it really ups the ante. This movie is so ridiculously over the top it's almost funny, almost.
|This is how I picture most raves anyhow|
|The place wasn't much cleaner before.|
One of the biggest problems with this movie and the original is the Collector himself.
He doesn't have anything distinctive about him. He's just a guy dressed in black, wearing a mask. There's no attempt to give him any personality either. He needs a more distinctive look and personality to make him unique. You also don't get any hint of why he's doing this until the very end of the movie.
I really think this movie was just a montage of leftover ideas from the "SAW" series. Writer/director Marcus Dunstan and co-writer Patrick Melton were responsible for the last four "SAW" movies, so this isn't surprising.
I will give the movie credit for something original. The ending was absolutely not what I was expecting. I won't give it away, but it certainly defied convention.
I can only hope there won't be a part three.
