Saw 2: ***
Saw 3: ***
The first Saw was by far the best and the most exciting. It was a refreshingly new take on terror and torture, if you are into that sort of thing. That is not to say that this is a sadistic sort of film. It is and it isn't The torture devices that the poor victims suffer through are pretty horrible, and you wouldn't wish it on anyone, and yet, you can't really turn away from the screen. That is what made the first Saw so captivating. Aside from the appalling acting from Carey Elwes, everything else is solid. Oh yes. And the ending of course was jaw dropping. I really didn't see it coming.
Saw 2 was decent enough. The torture devices were more obsene, the acting was ok for the most part. It even had the same type of claustrophobic environment. But it wasn't as exciting as the first film. It was missing something. I sort of cared for the characters in Saw 1. But I really couldn't find myself to care about any of the characters in this one. But, it still had a pretty neat ending.
Saw 3 was actually better than Saw 2. Still not as good as the first. You would think that every trick and torture device was already exhausted by the 2nd film. Well, we find out that that is not really true. Yes, there are even more devious and ridiculous methods to gruesomely kill a human being. The chest ripping thing was a particular ahem, favorite of mine. The acting overall was better than in Saw 2. And the plot for the most part was coherent, while at the same time, bordering ridiculous. But it was still fun. It seemed like a more tense environment, like in the first Saw. And yes, I also liked the ending in this one.
Sooo overall, you must be entirely non-squimish about watching films like this. Really. And if you do not mind watching people beg uselessly for their lives, then you will like this trilogy.
Saw II: $14.99
And you get them new. The $79.99 one is used. The new one is $99.99. you would be spending $35.02 more! I would consider reducing the price down to about at least $55 or $60. But that's the only problem. Great movies though.
Having seen all SAW movies prior to this purchase, I watched the special features first. The were informative, interesting, AND entertaining. One disc even had a disturbing video game.
If you haven't seen SAW yet, you don't know what you're missing. Absolutely gets a 4.5 by itself.
SAW 2 is okay. This one's story is implemented in a different fashion (meaning some like it and some don't). You get to really "meet" Jigsaw in this one, but the story seems weak. 3.5 seems about right.
I rate SAW 3 a 3.0 because it kind of sucks but it has some great elements. You can't wait to see what happens next.
SAW 4 gets a generous 2.0 in my book as it makes no sense by itself. You have to go online after watching it just to shed light on what the message was supposed to be. A good movie won't confuse you. A lazy writer will attempt to confuse you so they don't have to come up with a rational, unexpected, shocking ending.
SAW 5 picks up the pace and earns a 3.5. Not a great rating? Well it's not a great movie. It's better than 4.
SAW 6 has some great traps. The boring segments that were in 4 & 5 are gone. It gets a well deserved 4.0.
SAW 7 completes the series, though I suspect there may be prequels or spin-offs coming. The ending was great. In my opinion this film returns to the authenticity of SAW. It deserves a 4.5.
