    For fans, however, Saw VI is, pardon the pun, a cut above the rest but not, sadly, by much.
  2. The thinnest, draggiest, and most tediously preachy of the Saw films.
  3. One we wish we hadn't seen

    Taken just as an objet d’art, Saw VI — gray, grisly, solemn, stupid — would be about the most dismal thing I’ve ever laid eyes on, the argument against film preservation. But it vaults into the realm of real detestability through pretensions of relevance.

    Terrible acting, zero suspense, laughable logic and the promise of another one next year. How can we get this policy canceled?

    I expected "Saw 6" as my final Saw movie. Turns out the movie is better than its prequel; it has the theme of blood, gore, horror, a appropriate (but still Cliched) plot twist, and redemption. Bravo Mr. Greutert! Full Review »

    This is an amazing film. While they are dragging the series on, this is a great movie. It answers a lot of questions from previous installments as well as an amazing storyline that takes a stab at the failing healthcare system. Full Review »

    "Do you want to play a game". No thanks Jigsaw I`ll pass.

    Gets a "1" because you can re-use the DVD as a coaster.

    Metacritic actually
    insists that I write more about this movie, even though I don't want to. There is actually nothing else to say about it. Apart from that there should be a ban on releasing sequels that take a franchise beyond a trilogy. I`m all for artistic expression, but the ideas in this film were artistically expressed enough long ago. And really, if you can't tell a story in three films maybe it would be better off as a book.
