I want to play a game–I would like to know, when was the last time you saw a movie from the “Saw” franchise?
Whether or not you are a fan of these movies, you might want to consider watching this movie at least once on $5 Tuesday. It was a good film with probably one of the best plot twists ever. Throughout the movie you were either entertained or regretting paying the price of admission to cover your eyes.
The gruesome goriness is still present in the other movies from the franchise, but I don’t think it’s the worst. Honestly if you’ve seen one, you’ve seen them all. The story throughout the movie was pretty clear.
Overall, I think you would be fine not seeing any of the previous movies. I have only seen the first three and I never felt lost or confused.
My only concern was that “Jigsaw” might have been wrapped up too quickly. I feel like a few questions I had could have been easily avoided or answered.
I would would rate this movie 3 out of 5 stars.
