Witness the last diabolical act of a legend as the final pieces of Jigsaw's puzzles are revealed! As a deadly battle rages over Jigsaw's brutal legacy, a group of Jigsaw survivors gathers to seek the support of self-help guru and fellow survivor Bobby Dagen. But Dagen hides his own dark secrets, ones that will unleash a wave of unrelenting terror and suffering in this heart-stopping finale to the most successful horror movie series of all time.
All gross things must come to an end--even the Saw franchise, which reaches its terminal point with this seventh feature (its first released in 3D in theaters). "Franchise" actually isn't the proper term for the grisly series; each new film might be best described as the latest model, like a car or a DVD player, since the mechanics of the infernal machines created and unleashed by the morally driven Jigsaw and his henchman, Matt Hoffman (Costas Mandylor), are the real selling points, not the plot or acting or direction. Suffice it to say that the story here is somewhat novel--B-movie vet Sean Patrick Flanery is a self-help guru whose fame has hinged on the notion that he survived Jigsaw's deadly traps. The claim is a lie, of course, and Flanery soon finds himself in Hoffman's clutches, attempting to rescue his wife (Gina Holden) while all manner of accomplices die in hideous ways. As the Saw universe goes, Saw 3D is still relentlessly ghoulish and Sadean to a fault, but since the characters still refuse to operate like real human beings, it's difficult to feel anything about their gruesome passing. What the film does have going for it is a cameo from Cary Elwes's Dr. Gordon, who famously survived the first film, as well as the de rigueur flashback with Tobin Bell as Jigsaw, who brings malevolent energy that the rest of the film sorely lacks. As for the traps, their fans will be undoubtedly pleased by the latest array, of which there are 11, the most ever featured in one Saw film, and in particular by the opening worktable contraption, and by a device involving several cars, levers, and some very sticky glue. --Paul Gaita

But my boyfriend (we started dating after the series was completed) convinced me to watch Saw: The Final Chapter, and just skip 6. I did it for him, just waiting for the ending to arrive so I could be pissed off again. But I was wrong! The one word I would use to describe this movie is Satisfying! I thought the Bobby Dagen storyline was inspired--first by the concept itself, and then the twist his story took. You remember that reverse bear trap from the first Saw? It finally goes off and you get to see it. The return of Doctor Gordon! That sombitch survived, and boy, does he have some surprises up his sleeve. And Hoffman? Well, I won't give any details, but if you look at the beginning of this review, you'll see that one of the reasons I gave up on the Saw franchise was because that character kept winning. So if I like The Final Chapter this much, that pretty much tells you how he ends up. Just thinking about it makes me giddy. :D
I loved TFC so much I went back and watched 6. Knowing how everything wraps up really made that easier to stomach. Everyone is entitled to their own opinions, and I honestly feel odd giving a good review to a movie that is little more than a 6th sequel (are any sequels any good after the first one? And oftentimes not even then?), but damn, it's like they wrapped everything up in a nice bloody bow and handed it to me. Are there things I'd change? Of course. But as it stands, everyone involved created a movie that actually made me forgive them for all the things I hated up to then. This movie satisfied me. :D
the movie in it. After this I will always buy the unrated or director's cut.
you should read one of the other reviews to see what is going on here.
if you found that you watched it again without realizing it, then you have been "sawed"

I'm kind of sad. Look at my reviews of all the movies from the very first onwards and you'll understand that I truly love this whole franchise. I like the way it manages to weave the past with the present, bringing old victims back into play, exploring the motivations of Jigsaw himself and the manipulation of those who come to help him. Yes, it's a latex gore-fest and I'm not usually a lover of hack'n'slash movies. Yet Saw delivers a credible and tense narrative through the blood and guts. Even the 'extreme gore' scenes are watchable (even if only through finger slits in the case of my partner) courtesy of the ever more fiendish machines involved and traps set.
[SPOILER ALERT] In this 'final chapter' we get to focus once more on Detective Hoffman who is by now 101% total schizoid nutbag crazy. His focus is on revenge: against Jill Tuck who betrayed him, against Internal Affairs Agent Gibson who betrayed him, and against Bobby Dagen who betrayed the topsy turvy code of ethics that Jigsaw ultimately represents. "Live or die, make your choice."
It's a shame that in this, the last movie, we only get a couple of brief cameo appearances from the long dead Jigsaw. The Tobin Bell character is surely right up there with Freddie and Jason in the horror hall of fame by now, and it would have been nice to see a little more, one last time. I get why that wouldn't have fitted the plot, why this needed to be about Hoffman at this stage of the game. But even so.
What was welcome, and so long overdue, was the return of Dr Lawrence Gordon whose trials were at the centre of the very first Saw movie. Bringing him back in kind of completes the 'Circle of Death.' Once I saw him there, in the background, I kind of knew everything would be OK. Hakuna Matata indeed...
First the film - as with all the SAW movies the deaths are gratuitous & plentiful with the wooden acting that has become a staple of the later SAW films (1 & 2 were actually quite well acted!) this is mainly due to the no name actors - I don't mean this to offend them..... But they are not household names if you know what I mean ;) the budget has been put into the wonderful contraptions which is definitely evident! The plot is actually not that bad tbh and the ending was actually pretty well thought out, though I saw (lol) it coming a mile away everyone else that watched it with me didn't - so was a twist ending on the rule of averages!
The 3D presentation via a 4K upscale on a 55" tv was not too bad - depth was good, but not too gimmicky which surprised me a little, I thought there might be more things poking out towards the viewer!!! I did find that there was a weird purple/green tinge in some scenes but it was not too distracting. The movie is presented as 1:78 which means no black bars at top or bottom which I prefer for 3D playback as it helps immerse the viewer a little more than 2:35.
Sound as always on a blu ray with an uncompressed 7.1 sounded awesome :)
I gave the overall package a 3 out of 5 - an ok late night horror flick with average to good 3D..... Recommend a view especially for under a fiver!!!!
HOPE THIS HELPS & HAPPY SAW VIEWING ;) Sure most of you loving this film genre will buy it anyway. :)
The 3D effect in this film is stunning, it leaps out of the screen at you and this really adds to the gruesome goodness.
The acting is excellent and the story is exactly what you should expect from a Saw film.
A must buy for 3D horror fans.
I prefer it when the traps are set up by the original Jigsaw who kept in mind the idea that he wanted his victims to survive. It's less fun when the traps are designed to definitely kill. But that's the way the story has gone with Hoffman now in charge and trying to cover his back.
There's still some of the original game, but even then the movie always shows you the most gruesome outcomes.
It's definitely a fitting end to the series, although it does leave it open to even more sequels.
