Bookmonkey Saw: Day 27

Saw 3D, aka Saw VII, aka Saw: The Final Chapter

After one month, one comic, eight movies, two seasons of reality television and a video game (no luck on getting a copy of the second game to play within the time limit), I finally saw the conclusion of the Saw franchise this morning.

Saw 3D.

By the way, worst title ever - seriously, if you are going to name your films Saw, Saw II, Saw III, Saw IV, Saw V, and Saw VI, the final film should clearly be called Saw VII - if you want to cash in on the current 3D craze, you call your third film "Saw IIID" - it worked for the Friday the 13th franchise back in 1982.

Thankfully the DVD is called Saw: the Final Chapter (which still isn't as simple as "Saw VII" but, it'll have to do).

The film follows up where Saw VI left off - the new Jigsaw killer creates a new game and kills a record breaking of over 20 deaths in the film.  In the end, the story follows virtually the same plot used since the second film, doesn't really show anything new and left me disappointed overall.

I did feel pretty bad for the winner of season 2 of Scream Queens, as her scene was incredibly short and gave her virtually no chance to act at all.

I kind of feel like I just ran a marathon - a disgusting, bloody marathon.

Next up, conclusion and final thoughts.

  1. I know I'm a little late weighing in, but I suppose calling it Saw 73D is out of the question? It might sound like it came out in 1973, actually.
