Mary Elizabeth Winstead,
Special Agent Strahm is dead, and Detective Hoffman has emerged as the unchallenged successor to Jigsaw's legacy. However, when the FBI draws closer to Hoffman, he is forced to set a game into motion, and Jigsaw's grand scheme is finally understood. Written by
In the early planning stages, one discarded story idea had Detective Hoffman taking on the mafia. See more »
(at around 30 mins) When Simone is in the hospital, and Detective Hoffman visits her, there is a hand on her shoulder in the "close up" view to clam her down after Hoffman asks her if she "learned." However, when the camera zooms out a few seconds later, the nurse is just then going up toward her, to put her hand on Simone's shoulder. See more »
SPOILER: There's an extra scene after the end credits: Amanda comes to the door of the place holding the little girl (the one that Hoffman "saves" at the end of Saw IV) and tells her "not to trust the one who saves her". See more »
I honestly can say the Saw VI has restored my faith back into the series. I remember leaving the theater after Saw V in utter disappointment. I thought V was terrible, and the twist was...well, non existent. As far as VI goes, there are SEVERAL twists and turns, and its exciting to see the spirit of the first trilogy back in the last film of the second trilogy.
The acting was pretty good except for a few parts, (although I still maintain that Betsy Russell can't act...sorry) and the main character was more fleshed out than most of the other players from past films...Which brings me to a new point..
I think this was the most mature saw film since the first one...This one, with the exception of opening with a gruesome trap, spent more time with the characters, and allowed them time to develop better than in the previous installments. I really hope they decide to have Kevin Gretuert (sP) do Saw VII, instead of Hackl (no offense). I don't know if it was Hackl's fault or the screenwriter's for Saw V being such a weak entry, but all I know is Gretuert knows what he's doing, and is a much more decisive and talented director. I hope he does more than Saw films in the future! The only thing that disappointed me was no mentioning of the events (with the exception of Hoffman as the new Jigsaw, and Strahm's death) from Saw V...For instance, what was the point of the people in the traps in V? I know that was more than likely intentional to keep the suspense going for future sequels, but DAMNIT, I want to know what happened to Julie Benz's character, and why that game was so important.
Overall, I give saw 9.5/10
