Gimmicky, tired, and over indulgent on blood and guts, the Saw franchise has ended on a lousy note.
15 January 2011 | by See all my reviews

Now first off, EVERYONE has to have some sort of guilty pleasure, one of mine just happens to be the Saw franchise. Most would accuse the series of being all gore indulgence, no plot. And the gore is indulgent, but I can't say there's no plot, especially for the first film, which is by far the greatest of the series, as it took a bizarre premise to tense, and nail biting grounds, and each subsequent film has been somewhat entertaining (Some more than others). Now with the release of the seventh film, my verdict is... STOP RIGHT HERE, and I don't mean that nicely, because the film isn't even the least bit enjoyable to watch.

Taking place where the last film left off, it shows the ever growing struggle between Detective Mark Hoffman (Played by Costas Mandylor), and Jill Tuck (Played by Betsy Russell), the latter of whom seeks protection from the police, as the two of them are engaged in a battle over the legacy of the late Jigsaw killer, John Kramer (Played by Tobin Bell). Meanwhile, survivors of previous Jigsaw captives are starting to come forth in their experiences, in the wake of the rise of fame of self help guru Bobby Dagen (Played by Sean Patrick Flanery), but Bobby's dark secrets are about to come back to haunt him, as the battle for Jigsaw's legacy comes to a destructive conclusion.

To those familiar with the series, this is really nothing new. Take a couple of dartboards, throw a dart at a board of random captives, a board of random traps, bring back previous cast members, heighten the blood and guts, add some more depth and exploration to John Kramer's back story, get lead singer of Linkin Park, Chester Bennington to feature in a cameo at the end of the film's first act, add in gimmicky 3D effects, and Voila! You've got Saw 3D, the weakest and most generic installment of the series.

This is not the fault of the actors, who honestly look like they're trying their hardest (Except for 2 or 3), but they can't elevate the film's screenplay, with logic gaps wider than ever, the dialogue too cheesy, and ridiculous narratives thrown in that don't even get much attention anyway, as they're overshadowed by the film's gore, which has become utterly repellent at this point of the franchise. The film just tries too hard to force tension and fear out of the traps that have simply become tired. I also thought the third act dragged along.

If this really IS the last installment of the series (I doubt it), then they've ended on a pretty sour note.

I give it *1/2 out of ****
