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. Read full review
The Collection is an honest title. The movie is just a lot of other people's greatest hits. Read full review
The Collection doesn't have much to recommend it beyond a first-reel bloodbath rivaling "Blade" and "Death Ship." Read full review
