#67. Saw VI - Review

Saw VI film posterOk, so I watched Saw VI (2009), without having seen Saw III, IV, or V. I was a giant fan of the original Saw, but after the first sequel was a complete let down I just stopped following the franchise. I honestly don’t really remember what happened in the second film, but I am pretty sure the series’ main antagonist Jigsaw either died or was going to die, and that chick from the first flick was going to take over the family business. So now I jump right into VI and low and behold, nothing makes sense. I know what your thinking and I will be the first to say it; even if I had seen every film leading up to VI it still wouldn’t make any sense. In all honestly, I think I enjoyed the sixth entry into the Saw saga more because I had missed three of the five films that came before it. The kills are still pretty inventive, and their extreme dedication to stay clear from both humor and camp entertainment all but guarantees Jigsaw will not evolve into the wisecracking prankster that was Freddy Krueger. All in all if you have put yourself through Saw-Saw V then you practically have to watch this film. From what I can tell the creators have no interest in anything other than the further convoluting of an already incomprehensible plotline. It’s on Netflix Watch Instantly, so have fun?

I really like the Saw movies, I didn't go see the Final Chapter, but it's definitely saved in my que. The twists and turns to keep the plot going are a stretch, but they've all been a guilty pleasure that put a big smile on my face. At least they're watchable and keep your attention (at least for me), unlike something like Hostel that was just horrible in between the torture scenes.

I might watch the earlier Saw films again. As far as Hostel, its been a while since I have watched it, but I remember really liking it.
