  • chanandre's rating of the film Jigsaw

    A morality tale of the highest kind. Almost religious experience. If the bad don't really atone they shall die. It's the good bad (à la Dexter) vs the selfish egotistical bad bad (who's given time and again a chance to repent yet always chooses the quick away: neglects its peer and chooses his/her life vs the other's). I criminally underestimated this franchise & must see it in another light. A masterpiece.Bergman-y♡

  • Steve Pulaski's rating of the film Jigsaw

    It's not a good thing when your franchise's return to the big-screen after lying dormant for so long plays like a direct-to-DVD sequel - and we're not talking about "Jeepers Creepers 3" either. "Jigsaw" is a wooden, visually ugly bore with a convoluted narrative compounded by a winded third act reveal so mishandled that it feels like the actors are panting through their lines to keep the film under 80 minutes.

  • Zachary T.'s rating of the film Jigsaw

    The fanboy in me balked at a glossy, funny revival. These films are unique because they reject the Whedon-esque diffusing of horror with humour; they commit to a tone. But, the laughs land, and they don't sabotage a thing. There are series highs aplenty, actually. The victims have never been so villainous, it's colourful and crisply shot, and Tobin Bell is on fire. He clearly missed the role. I missed him, too.

    a somewhat enjoyable throwback but also as tedious and predictable as any of the sequels that came before. leave it dead in the water plz.

  • James Mackin's rating of the film Jigsaw

    Being a teenager when the other films came out, I'm very glad I got to see a Saw film in the cinema. And this definitely had its moments of fun, and the Spierigs brought a unique visual flair. But we really didn't need an eighth Saw film, and the script didn't really make a strong case for rebuilding this franchise.

  • Diderot's rating of the film Jigsaw

    Trash. The cheap morality of the Saw franchise has really become exhausting at this point. I want one where someone violently shames Jigsaw himself for what counts as far more reprehensible behavior than that of practically all of his victims.

  • aurkihnowe's rating of the film Jigsaw

    Just when you thought the series was dead and buried, it's "alive!"....what drives people to watch these things? Schadenfreude is not a virtue, peeps...if you have an honest answer, feel free to leave a comment....UNWATCHED....

  • João R.'s rating of the film Jigsaw

    I was excited about this revival. A few aspects were steady - the twists and the blurred chronology -, but this was a disappointing entry that didn't deserve Jigsaw as its title - the traps weren't inventive and it was stalled to fill a full length. The original tone is lost and this was confusing in its goal. The accomplice of the hospital wasn't revealed, so I believe this is just a new (unwanted) beginning.
