    Whereas the later "Saw" films were hampered by bloated backstory, various ostentatious agendas, and self-satisfied sadism, The Collection feels utterly unburdened by anything but its lean, fleet-footed plot.

    Remarkably, the result manages to be both more preposterous and more efficient than its predecessor, with a couple of deaths occurring so swiftly they border on the subliminal.

  • Ian Buckwalter

    Genre aficionados are likely to revel in every crunched bone, gratuitous decapitation and slow-motion iron-maiden impaling.

  • Nick Pinkerton

    The Collection doesn't have much to recommend it beyond a first-reel bloodbath rivaling "Blade" and "Death Ship."

  • Wesley Morris

    The Collection is an honest title. The movie is just a lot of other people's greatest hits.

  • Frank Scheck

    Unfortunately, the Collector simply isn't a very interesting screen villain. Clad in a black mask that reveals only his eyes and mouth, he mainly communicates by heavy breathing. It makes one yearn for the perversely witty chatter of Jigsaw.

  • Geoff Berkshire

    An energetic but utterly weightless exercise in slice-and-dice cinema. This sequel to 2009 chiller "The Collector" is in many ways bigger (more characters, more locations, more carnage), but in no way better than its predecessor.

  • Eric Kohn

    The whole thing is a fairly yawn-a-rific affair until the vengeful prologue establishes a wicked role reversal, hinting at the better movie that filmmakers more interested in storytelling would have made.

  • Keith Phipps

    It also has enough nutty energy and oddball touches - "The Wire's" Andre Royo shows up as a gun-toting, faux-hawk-sporting badass - that it's never boring. Dumb, gross, gratuitous, and overly familiar, sure. But never boring.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    The movie's a smorgasbord of horror, and, ironically, that takes the teeth out of it. We're not really in this villain's world, because we don't know what his world is, or what he is, or what he's trying to even do. It's like a nightmare designed by someone who's heard a lot about nightmares but has never actually had one.

    Melton and Dunstan have created little more than a hollow shell for an empty box.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    Dull and repetitive, even by the standards of an already repetitive genre.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Marjorie Baumgarten

    An exercise in pure sadism, The Collection moves at a clip that leaps over plot holes in its race to elicit fright.

  • Nicole Herrington

    A pointless exercise in sadism.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Mick LaSalle

    The Collection is bloody, disgusting and ridiculous, but the one thing it's not is horror, not real horror, not in the sense of tense or scary. It's not cinema, either. It's not even fun.
