Our Score
The most successful franchise in horror history ends badly for one long-running character as all mysteries are deviously solved. Saw VI director Kevin Greutert returns for the endgame and he nimbly navigates between two story strands for maximum gory thrills and swift-paced suspense. As Detective Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) hunts down police-protected Jill (Betsy Russell) for betraying him, bogus Jigsaw survivor Bobby Dagen (Sean Patrick Flanery), who's got rich from self-help seminars and fake memoirs, is put to the fiendish test in shock scenarios borrowed from sources such as A Man Called Horse and the work of Lucio Fulci. Though the film initially borders on parody, once the ever-ingenious trapping begins - using fishhooks, superglue, ovens and dental equipment - the chills run on turbo drive right through to the greatest hits flashback finale. The 3D adds little to the experience with the CGI blood splatter something of a distraction to the almost Shakespearean crescendo of anguish and carnage.
