Wow. This was pretty sad on every level. Whenever horror movies start to become a series (Friday Xiii, Nightmare on Elm, Halloween or Saw) there are a few simple courtesies. The foremost one is that it doesn’t nor shouldn’t matter, which order you see these flicks. It is just about brutality and killings. Saw VI was hugely disappointing in that regard. And if they wanted me to know some history from Saw V then follow the lead of the other horror flicks and have a little recap at the start. As for the film itself I have several other beefs. Firstly it looked like it was filmed in Technicolor, which went out in the 60’s. And the music…give it a rest once in a while. Throughout the ENTIRE movie this repetitive “foreboding” cello and kettledrum stuff was relentless. It was so bad/loud that you could barely understand the mumbling of our friend Mr. Jigsaw. After the initial blood bath in the opening scene, the movie then went into a 30 minute very slow moving nothingness. (again to the foreboding music) I lost track of what was going on and couldn’t figure out if Jigsaw was dead or alive. I am sure the director couldn’t figure that out either. The ending was downright nutty. The only upside would be the assorted and expected “Want to play a game? ” scenes. There are a few new gadgets, and the deaths are colourful. But just rent any of the other Saw movies and you’ll be further ahead. This one is the worst of the bunch. They should have stopped after II. This one was, as Shaquille O’Neil would say, “Horrorawful”
