Saw: The Final Chapter (Saw3D / Saw 7) (2010)

Hello, Evan. I want to play a game. The situation you find yourself in... is of your own doing.

Like the Friday the 13th franchise you really know what to expect from a Saw movie. It will have ingenious traps, lots of blood, make you squirm perhaps and include a twist. This final instalment manages to do all of these things marginally well making it a solid entry into the series. Its certainly better then the last two both of which I found to be eminently forgettable.

The story is a simply convoluted as always, the hardcore fans will pick up on the myriad threads running here, myself I am simply happy to watch the gore. vlcsnap-2012-03-20-20h17m06s101

I did find the trap escapes to be rather less enthralling this time around, mainly because they were all about saving another and not oneself. Ideas are obviously lacking. One thing that I do applaud is the decision to wrap up the story as it has almost become as great a joke AS Friday the 13th. vlcsnap-2012-03-20-21h07m44s180

Like all 3D films it also subjects the viewer to an overuse of “out of the screen” gimmicks which I found rather annoying. I will never be convinced by 3D i am afraid.

Despite its flaws Saw 7 is worth a look.
