1 I disagree with the reason of Saw III "Became too much like Hostel." Saw came before Hostel did. More like, Hostel was trying to be like Saw in every way. -- Submitted By: () on April 21, 2015, 8:24 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Saw should have stopped at III. It would've made a good trilogy. But, they decided to continue it until it got quite pretentious in itself. I've watched the series up until VI and I haven't mustered up the interest to watch the "Final Chapter". Not because I got queasy, but because it got stupid and literally became a trend of "how can this victim get killed in the most horrendous way possible?" theme. -- Submitted By: () on March 18, 2014, 11:18 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 I liked Saw for the first few films but then they kept going with it until that tuna bled. -- Submitted By: (Jp) on October 13, 2011, 6:01 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Unpopular as the opinion may be, I found Saw I-III to be very engaging thrillers with a nice dose of social commentary and character study. The series came close to boning the fish with part IV's change in writers, introducing a dull reason for testing the protagonist, a random replacement for Jigsaw, and mediocre at absolute best plot resolutions. Part V was a huge jumping point by confirming said plot points null and void for good and introducing even less inspired social commentary. Saw VI was a step up, but far from a masterpiece, and "3D" was just lazy in every possible way thanks to the divergent story going from IV, which V solidified. -- Submitted By: (MrBriggsInc) on June 1, 2011, 12:26 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 The later on we go with this movie series, the more it is about seeing how people could get killed. One of many examples of how horror movies are the most abused when it comes to sequels, hell, the people that keep these horror movies rolling make Disney look like saints when it comes to making sequels. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on April 4, 2010, 9:37 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 As of yet, the story still holds my attention and intrigues me for what it's worth. I never expected much when I "Saw" the first one, and was pleasantly surprised. The sequels were nothing like the first, but continued to live up to my lowered expectations, therefore I have to admit, this series has yet to bone the fish. Give it time, I am sure it will. I know they have number 7 coming soon, and are planning the 8th. It should bone somewhere around then. -- Submitted By: (Shiddy_Smell) on April 4, 2010, 5:55 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Infact the closest thing Saw III had to a redeeming feature was a sense of finality in bringing Jigsaw to his final end (even if typically this meant the villain having to have a bridge dropped on him). But even that became invalidated when they carried it on with the next three Saw films in what looks to be a depressingly dragged out, never ending film franchise that should have just been a one off. -- Submitted By: (Tanlee) on October 28, 2009, 7:49 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Saw III is where it really jumped. The second film wasn't that good to be honest (and the twist was an absolute cheat) but at least it had some wit and had some sense that it was about something more than just torture and misery and cruelty. But Saw III is to my mind just a nasty, reprehensible film that has to render its characters really inept and stupid in doing things to get themselves killed in the most horribly contrived and nasty way possible. When this happens there's no way it works as horror because there's no suspense anymore, because the character didn't have a chance of surviving because the writing has limited them and there's no way of empathising on a primal level with their survival instinct. I think the suggestion that Saw became too much like the Hostel flims really does the Hostel films a disservice, because Hostel at least does what it does right without ever seeming contrived about it or like its trying too hard, and honestly is unpredictable, spontaneous and has the essence of life at its most primal about it. -- Submitted By: (Tanlee) on October 28, 2009, 7:46 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
