Goofs

John Kramer says he doesn't care about the cost of surgery since he is very wealthy. However, when his insurance claim for an overseas treatment is denied by William, he seemingly forgets this fact. He simply derides William and just accepts defeat despite the fact that he, by his own admission, could afford to just travel overseas and receive the treatment anyway. Furthermore, why would John, who in a flashback castigated William for his immoral business practices, take insurance from him in the first place? See more »

I can't be the only one...
24 October 2009 | by Meven_StoffatSee all my reviews

While I'll admit that this was indeed better than Saw V, I still did not like this movie at all. Ever since Saw IV, the series has become a total "Let's-try-to-come-up-with-as-many-gory-deaths-as-possible" game. I'm betting that a lot of the positive reviewers are either:

A)Easily pleased B)People who have not seen the movie and are giving it good reviews because they love the Saw movies C)A.D.D. teenagers who have not seen very many movies

Here, we've got Kevin Greutert in the director's chair. Now direction wise, he does a much better job than David HACKl. (I capitalized the first four letters for a reason- that's what HACKl is when it comes to directing). That said, this movie still sucked. It suffers from the same issues as Saw V- Too many flashbacks, rushed pacing, too many ideas with not enough time to pay attention to one specific detail.

However, where this is an improvement over Saw V is in many things. Tobin always delivers as Jigsaw and here he gives his best performance as Jigsaw. Jill is great too. I liked the overall look of the movie, and the gore was realistic looking too- not the CG crap like in Saw IV and V.

That is unfortunately where it stops. None of the traps are creative at all (the janitor trap? WTF). The movie was 75% flashbacks, which bored the hell out of me. The acting was bad as usual- but then again, with the exception of Jigsaw,when has the acting ever been good in a Saw movie. And that ending.Total bullshit! The second it was over, I thought "What the hell was that????".

In short, will I see Saw VII? Yes, but only because I just wanna see how the series will end up. It's impossible for one to think this would be a Freddy/Jason series, but it has turned out that way.
