Saw 3D Review

Saw3d

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.

Sir Jorge, i think entertain-girl-t is all you should be concerning yourself with when reveiwing films, most horror movies are not scary but they are marvellously entertaining and thats the most important thing, horror films ceased to be scary a long time ago but they are still by far the most entertaining genre of all (with science fiction a close second), always remember that when watching a horror movie entertain-girl-t is the most important thing not being scared.

To answer your question no Saw 3D is not the last in the series. Because the word's "final" are being promoted here expect at least one more sequel and then a remake.
I.e. The Final Friday: Jason Goes to Hell - Jason X, Friday the 13th (2009).
Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare - New Nightmare, Nightmare on Elm Street (2010).
Halloween H20: 20 Years Later - Halloween: Resurection, Halloween (2007).

bleeding dead over on your site it says you`re a hot chick so why are you using a picture of Uma Thur-girl for your profile?, i`d prefer to see one of you wearing a skimpi bikini, how about it baby. I`m sure Sir Jorge would agree.

Well jervaise your extensive list of celebrities of which you would bugger (as they were when they were 18, of course) was difficult to limit down. I was learning towards Nev Cambell since you expressed a more vivid description of what you'd do to her, specifically with your milt, but ultimately I decided to go with Uma in the light of her being in my favorite film.

But baby, like i said, you`re the one who i want to see in a bikini, why didn`t you say anything about that?. By the way, i`d love to bugger Uma as well (as she was in 1988 when she was 18, not as she is now obviously) i just wish she`d change the second syllable of her surname to "girl", thats how murderously homo-phobic i am.

Bleeding Dead said...

Sorry jervaise, just wasn't as attentative last night. If you put that aside I did change it for you, love. Here's hoping it satisfies all your hetrosexual needs.
