Dead bodies begin to turn up all over the city, each meeting their demise in a variety of grisly ways. All investigations begin to point the finger at deceased killer John Kramer.
good back-story, and good acting
It's hard to see any effort in the film. There's no comedy to speak of, no real drama and, worst of all.
A lot of perfectly good film show their cards early, establish a unique premise and let the audience explore a topic at a leisurely pace, without much in terms of surprise. this film is not one of those films.
It’s not bad or unwatchable but despite the amplitude of the spectacle, the end result is underwhelming.
I love the saw franchise, but man I hate to be this guy. Being a fan of the first 6. So 10 years later, bodys start appearing around the area. Obviously people point fingers at the jigsaw killer aka john Kramer or a copycat. As the boring dull police investigation drags, we see 5 victims stranded in a barn with tests yet to complete. Now, I was excited for this. After walking out of the theater, I wasn't just overwhelmed.. But I also thought to myself ".... I know the director of saw 2 didn't put any effort in part 4, but damn..." The traps were uninspired and less creative to the extreme. There was dread/fear in the previous saw movies especially the first 3 but in this one they take all of that away and rely on heavy CGI and easy tame ideas to get filming done quicker... cough cough GRAIN SILO.. cough... SILO WIRES...Borrowing all things from the first 7 and toning everything down is a big mistake especially for a hardcore saw fanatic. Everything felt unfinished and unsatisfying, but I still had high hopes for the "great ending" that the directors were hyping up about. spoilers but.. not just the horrible cgi at the end, but that twist really wasn't a twist to me. It just added something to the timeline that made everything even more complicated... not in a good way either. John CLEARLY said in 7 that Dr Gordon was his very first associate/apprentice. So I just dont see how the barn game/new apprentice thing was all before 1.. just makes it frustrating. overall it was just too tame. I know they were grabbing new viewers to see new life of the saw series but it really was overall recycled ideas executed in the most boring dullest ways... unsatisfying at best.
This movie's cinematography is actually quite good but the storyline is horribly paced. As the Saw franchise goes on, the sequels make the story even more hilarious with each new twist. And this movie certainly did not disappoint with its absolutely ridiculous twist! Overall, this movie is great as a comedy, but not so great as a dead serious horror film.
I personally believe that the story is told in the same way as it should have been. When you are watching a puzzled movie you should expect a perplexed storytelling which goes against your will, mind boggling twisted scenes and a very unpredictable climax. Everything shown in the movie are quite justified if you try to think it with different thoughts and not getting stuck with one. Altogether a very obvious beginning with an uncertain end.
The reviews are really bad!Come on guys.. it was really good + welcome Jig"saw" Dont listen to bad reviews.. just watch the movie and enjoy.
