I have seen only 1,2,3 and I think then more they produce then worst it become, defiently I liked 1st one, good concetption, the 2nd wasnt that good, 3rd one was a cheap copy of 1st one for me, so I dont even want hear about about4,5,6.....
The first film hands down, back when SAW was still dark and refreshing. The ending was fantastic and unexpected.
Number two is also good and I honestly can't remember three but to me each film is worse than the last. They seem to be getting a bit silly now with each installment especially since Jigsaw is dead and he's still somehow pulling the strings with extremely well thought out plans. I just don't think any of them are a credit to the first SAW.
Oh man I remember saying that Saw was my favourite movie back in 2004 or 2005 dont remember when i actually saw it the first time.
Saw 1 is one hell of a great movie with major emotional disturbiness (is that a word ?)
Anyways later on the story got flawed IMO and the movies got worse and worse. They took away the emotional scary parts and just made it slash and dash !
You dont connect or feel with the characters anymore like you did with Saw 1
But thats not strange considering all traps now are like 1 minute and with impossible time limits along with impossible missions.
I would have liked to see more survivors and more simple but longer traps with more thoughts around them.
Now its just finding the most crucial way to kill someone..
I liked Saw 1 and i thought Saw 2 was acceptable (even tough it sucked noone survived the house except from the people who was supposed to do it)
I also thought they took away the "saving life" aspect of the serie, like the beginning trap of Saw 2 was just impossible.
With that amount of time limit and all those locks and pushing your self into pulling your own eye out is to bassicly killing someone, its impossible to complete.
They made Jigsaw just another coldblooded murderer who "THOUGHT" he helped people. It would have been more fascinating to see more "amandas" in the serie who actually learned something...
I recently Saw "saw 6" saw saw lol ^^
It was better then 4 and 5 IMO but still kinda redicules. Too many pawns (if jigsaw really wanted to test people he should never have used pawns in the first place)
I thought the "air trap" was cool but again rigged, how should a smoker win against a fully super healthy man? And what if the smoker had won? WOuld the rest of the traps just not go off or?
Its just too many flaws and trying to give the story reason to kill as many as possible.
So with this long review of the serie "Saw" there is just one peice that should be watched wich is the first movie.
I pretend the others dident happend Like how FFX - 2 did not happend.
Ok, looking back its like, do you realize how good they had it in the original? The two main characters had an actual decent time limit to actually...do what they were instructed to do. And I mean in almost every film, there was a trap you COLD escape, so I'll contradict you, Jarre, on the fact you say some traps were "impossible"...they were not, not in the earlier Saw films.
But its just, the more I watched even the later films like V, I realize how EASY it wouldv'e been for all to suffer a LITTLE and for everyone to make it through alive. Sadly, the films tend to make an emphesis on how we as humans rely on instinct, even over someone else's word. The whole point is, Jigsaw(and his successor, Hoffman) were exceptionally good in knowing a person's exact reaction and that's why things went exactly the way they did, in the traps, and sometimes, they would even conciously mock them just so they would be enraged and act in desperation instead of using their minds to solve the traps.
I agree, the franchise IS going a tad far, but I still find the series interesting, even though its become more blood and gore and senseless killing instead of a heart-racing thriller with good, detailed character backgrounds.
But like...now, in VI, there actually were traps when some actually HAD to die(like the carouselle, for one)...and I mean, what's the point of that?? In most Saw films, I actually found rational solutions for the situations, even if you'd be liuterally scarred for life, bleeding and wounded beyond repair, you'd still be technically alive. Its getting to the point people now actually have to die...and that's weird.
I dunno, I liked all the films, really, and found each one was entertaining in its own way, so I can't choose.
I'd LIKE to see the doc from Saw come back in VII or VIII as the final plot twist since everyone's been suggesting he'd make an appearance in V or VI, doesn't mean it won't happened, after all, Gordon DID escape...and even Riggs, we're not sure he actually died.
It was like the scene with Perez from IV, I actually stood up discussing with a roommate that she wasn't actually dead, then VI comes out and bam! guess who was right?
I think this is one of the best low-budget franchises in a long time...but we have to stop somewhere along the lines of VIII or maybe X. No?
""FFXIII doesn't even...suck, its just...not a game. All it is is linear cinematics and random command pressing. Its an unplayable waste."
