    Strange, dumb, and sometimes even fun.

    This seventh installment does at least provide a reasonably satisfying conclusion to the series in the unlikely event they choose to give it a rest.

    Like a stumpy limb requiring quick cauterization via steam pipe (our first cringe), the Saw series is begging for closure.

    Any signs of life the series showed in the last installment (Saw VI), a dash of humanity here and there, were premature.

    The original "Saw" was smart enough to tease its audience, to literally restrain its characters and gradually dial up the dread, setting the table for a truly shocking twist. The latest just wants bigger and bigger bangs.

    Saw 3-D is in 3-D. Really, really bad 3-D.

    There's also no point in paying the 3-D ticket price for occasional bits of gristle flying your way, or blurry action shots. Whereas the first "Saw" got marks for originality, the filmmakers have so lost their fastballs that this one's extreme gore provokes either laughter or sleep.

    I believe that this movie was a great ending to the saw series and also that negative feedback were people who probably just couldn't cope with horror movies, not the movie itself. Some argue that the movies predictable, however I don't think so, did we expect Hoffman to be in the body bag? no. In a nutshell, it was an excellent movie and I recommend it to people with a strong stomach and saw fans. Not people who go to watch the movie and give negative feedback just because they don't like the "torture porn." Also the movie contained greater suspense than ever like every saw movie :) Expand

    saw 3d is an insanely cool ending to the saw films, i couldn't have enjoyed it more, and the twist at the end is almost impossible to see coming.

    Saw 3D es una película que muestra un gran historia en su sipnosis, en donde todo está bien planeado para ejecutarse y así mantiene un buen ritmo de acción y emoción en el film. Expand

    "Saw 3D fails to grasp what it has going for it , tho some of the traps are clever & original but with its cheesy effects & laughable performances ii can't take it seriously. But its the perfect ending to a dragged out series lets hope it stays that way..." .. C+ Expand

    Saw 6 and Saw 7 (or Saw 3D as it's titled) went against the essence of the entire franchise. The greatness of the first five movies was the possibility of redemption, and how traps had the ability to teach lessons. Yet, the producers and directs have chosen gore and violence over cleverness, and it's so disappointing. I saw the movie in 3D and I don't think the 3D effects were used enough, and it's not like theaters are set up to spray you with red water when you see blood splatter so the 3D is really a gimmick. I can say, I'm glad the series has ended because what once had intriguing twists and outcomes eventually lost those very things that made it so great. Expand

    First of all, I won't comment on the 3D parts of this movie as I only watched the bluray copy. Secondly, I just hope this is the final one as they are never going to better the first 2 movies (yes, I liked the 2nd one!). THis film just expands the story a little more with completely pointless deaths. If they do decide to do another Saw movie then save everyone £$ and just make a load of death scenes and stick them on youtube. Expand

    BOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! The Saw series has gone soooooo off track since the first film. I enjoyed the first and the third, the 2nd and 4th were borderline a waste of time. Followed very closely by all the rest!!! I enjoyed the twist in the last movie but everything else was a sick explotation of murder and gore (seriously who needs to watch a piece of intestine fall from the ceiling on to the floor, followed by a 5 second close up of that same intestine). I expect this from Hostile but man the first one was so smart and intricately weaved with a briliant conclusion. Anyone says they like this movie is just DUMB!!! I'm sorry but DUMB!!! Expand
