    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.

    This movie is a great way to end the saw series, whoever gives this movie a low review is... well i just dont know how you can give this movie a low review. I have been a fan since the first one and this finally gives some conclusion to the story, amazingly amazing.

    Amazing btw.

    hell of a good time, people don't understand that pretty much all fiction ever made is unrealistic, with that mentality, saw 3d pretty much plucks you right out of the real world for some 80 minutes, and you won't mind one bit. Expand

    Sometimes in order to make something fresh and exciting again, you have to go back to the beginning, and that's exactly what Saw did. While I enjoyed all the movies, this one has less flashbacks, and is as creepy than ever before. If you are not on the edge of your seat for this one, there is something wrong with you! The final chapter as they claim it to be, might have been the best Saw film yet and the way they chose to end it will just blow your mind all over again. Even if you gave up after the first two or three, SEE THIS MOVIE! 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

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This is the worst film in the franchise! This was a terrible way to end the series! The acting was bad, the directing was bad, the plot twists were bad and the end was bad!! All the characters in this film annoyed me, I was soo happy when they died!! Yet, this film still leaves out some things that need to be explained, especially the fate of Bobby Dagen. If there is a Saw 8, it better not turn out like this!!! 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
