The night it came out, a few of my friends came back telling me how much they liked it. Some of them mentioned that the acting had gotten better and that it was indeed better than the second one.
Now, seeing as how I didn't really like either of the first two I should have suspected the same with the third installment of this trilogy. I figured I'd give it a chance, however. The only added benefit was that a few of my friends were getting dressed up and went out on Halloween night to see it. That turned out to be the only good part of the night.
Saw III tries to be an eye covering gore fest and fails miserably. I thought it made a better comedy than anything. At no point during the movie did I ever feel tension. I sat watching the movie in complete disappointment waiting for a moment of tension to build. It never came.
I was suspecting the movie to rely on pure shock and "surprise" scares, which it did. The only problem with it is that none of them worked. Every time something happened that was meant to scare people I either was filled with a, "Is that the best you can do?" feeling or I laughed.
The acting has not gotten any better and by the end of the movie I was really getting tired of hearing Jigsaw say he wanted to play a game. I suppose after three movies it's bound to get annoying.
Super fast cuts fashioned into strobing type of shots and constant change from very dark scenes to highly contrasted scenes filled with white light only supported a headache through the film.
Don't believe the hype of this movie. If you want to see gore or be truly frightened, look elsewhere because Saw III definitely does not deliver on either point.
I should have went to see The Prestige instead.
