DVD Review: SAW THE FINAL CHAPTER
Saw 3D, Saw The Final Chapter or Saw the Traps Come Alive, whatever the name is, it’s supposed to be the last in the franchise. Jigsaw’s (Tobin Bell) puzzle finally all comes together with his wife Jill (Betsy Russell), Detective Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) and a returning Dr. Gordon (Cary Elwes) playing key pieces o this puzzle along with a new piece added, Bobby Dagen (Sean Patrick Flannery).
This installment is a no-holds barred gorefest that doesn’t hold back one bit. Director Kevin Greutert pulls off one of the best entries in this franchise plus he did it in 3D. Writer Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunston once again show why they are the go-to guys when it comes to these movies. The three put together a fun film that’s nothing less than a horror movie lovers new favorite, even if it’s the seventh in the series.
The story doesn’t drive the film at all, it’s the traps. It’s almost like they come up with the traps first and wrote round them and I’m totally ok with that! These traps in this movie are twisted and insane, oh and as brutal as they come. From the beginning of the film where the public witnesses a three way affair gone wrong to a junk yard with super glue and rock stars, literally. Many of these traps are the largest we’ve seen so far and are so far over the top I’m sure some will question, “they can’t do that?”, but just watch it and have fun because it’s a movie people!
The imagination that it takes to make a movie like this is superb! Flannery gets to shine in this film and as a fan of his I’m glad he got the opportunity. Jigsaw was missing through much of Saw 3D but his traps represent him very well. Jill and Hoffman finally come face to face without one or the other escaping, or do they? Oh and we have Dr, Gordon, after all the Saw movies, why bring him back now? You’ll just have to see but I’ll tell you this, it’s a sweet tie in.
Saw The Final Chapter is a great installment in what is the most successful horror movie series to date. They didn’t hold back and it shows on screen. The movies stays busy from beginning to end, what I’m trying to say is there are no slow moments in the movie at all. The run time is 90 non stop minutes with plenty of special features.
Be sure you check out this 3D blood bath when you can!
