Saw 3D Review
Saw 3D pwned the competition this weekend, and I was one of the millions of idiots that went to see it. First let's get it out of the way, SAW 3D is not a scary movie, as much as it is a tie up of the rest of the films in one gorey mess.
The film follows the story of a support group and the fight between the last two pieces of the Jigsaw puzzle, or so you think. While the ongoing struggle to show people that they should appreciate their lives continues, the whole plot is a convoluted mess of what we've already seen. The film travels on paths already done by previous Saw films, and NOT as well as the first film at all.
That being said, the Doctor Gordon character comes back and he's more cynical than ever, and I liked how he turned out the lights on the whole series, and the writers made it work in a sense. He didn't seem out of place, nor thrown in, as he makes the film a positive. The rest of the movie?
Well. There's a lot of gore, and the 3D is done quite well. The film feels solid, and it flows really simple. In fact, I enjoyed the movie for the most part, and feel like it truly can be over.
Will it die?
I don't know. Will it be a legacy? Maybe.
One thing is for sure, I'll buy a box set if they group all the films together. However, you really only need to see a few of the films to get the whole series, but the first and last compliment each other in a way that the others don't. I liked it for what it was, and enjoyed the last 7 years of investing $20 to see these films.
I can't wait for some other series to try and take the cake, and i hope it's not Paranormal Activity, cause that film sucked.
That's that. Saw 3D did a good job at entertaining me, just not scaring me.
