Saw IV

“You think it’s over because I’m dead,” teases raspy-voiced Jigsaw (Tobin Bell) from beyond the grave – courtesy of a tape dug out of his autopsied stomach. So the cruel machinations begin again, as director Darren Lynn Bousman tries to spark life into a disembowelled corpse. Parallel plot-strands threaten to strangle one another as obsessed SWAT team member Rigg (Lyriq Bent) and FBI profilers Strahm (Scott Patterson) and Perez (Athena Karkanis) charge about town or interrogate Jigsaw’s estranged wife Jill (Betsy Russell), looking for clues that will save two captive cops from an early bath. The $64,000 question is, can the cops learn to see how Jigsaw sees and feel how he feels? The need to incorporate familiar characters and icons from the earlier films, together with flashbacks that flesh out Jigsaw’s pre-‘puppet master’ past, simply leads to an irritating series of creative dead ends. Truly, a hack-‘Saw’.

Films like this are a very rare occurance these days. I cant get enough of Saw, the brutality, the tremendous acting, the simplicity of the traps contrasting their incredible purpose. More, more, more!

Was looking forward to this- it was average-not as gruesome as expected.- Saw 2 was my favourite of the 4. I found it a bit confusing about how the detective was involved-which must have been right at the beginning? Unless i'm just slow. Still worth a watch though.........

The movie's awesome!!~ as expected :) im quite satisfied~no dissapointment. But i still think SAW3 is the best~ especially on the torturing devices. I would put this SAw4 in the 3rd place among all 4 SAW movies~

I would suggest watching 1 through to 3 again, just to keep up with the action. Great twists as ever, the ending as much one of them leading, presumably, on to number 5 - bring it on! :O)

Well, what can i say, special effects excellent, gory scenes seem to get better every film, howvever story line lacked, it was confusing and wet, i think maybe they are trying a bit to hard to twist things round, and i reckon if they make any more films now it will become boring, the killer will be identifiable from the word go, and will lack entertainment.

ABI & LORNA

This is amazing. very sick and very twisted def not for the light hearted or anyone wimps. If you disgust easily do not see. The plot was amazing with some ver unexpected twists and turns but all explained (eventually) the scenes in this will rench your stomach, so no popcorn. Great Halloween film! Happy scaring.

Dean & Abi

An inspired fourth instalment of a thrilling and shocking series. Although some aspects of the plot are somewhat confusing, this serves as a great excuse to go see it again. With thought- provoking twists, likeable casts, and scenes that will have you reaching for the sick bag, we cannot wait to see Jigsaw's next move. Genius.
