Not sure why they were calling it Jigsaw as I heard it was supposed to be called Saw:Legacy When I search the title on IMDB.com it shows this sequel. I thought legacy sounded good for a sequel to a long running franchise (that has not had a reboot, remake etc). I guess with the title ‘Legacy’ that maybe that made it sound like the final installment of the series. So if that’s the case I understand.
I was taking a look at the taglines for the movie, and man do they have a list. Never have I seen that many taglines for one movie before! I even looked up a few movies I could think of off the top of my head and it varies by 1-4 tops.
So after John ‘Jigsaw’ Kramer has been deceased for a decade, he still seems to still be up to his old tricks, mmm make that traps from beyond the grave. Then again, didn’t he say his work would still go on? All the clues point to Jigsaw, I can’t remember did his assistant die in the last one? Could it be her, or a full on copycat?
So this time we play a game with a few bucket heads. As always there’s a reason for their punishment, but what is it this time? What is the one thing they have all done that brings them to this demented ‘tug of war?
I read that Saw 3D (2010) was supposed to be the last of the series, but the studio wanted to reboot it. a Reboot (I think I’m going to have to define that a little better in my when is a remake ok (Reboots,remakes and Updates) article ) You see to me for something to be a ‘reboot’ it has to be longer than 7 years sine the last one, also normally there are new cast members so if Tobin Bell is in the movie, then it does not qualify as a Reboot, only another sequel.
Ya know, I kind of was tired of the movies I forget at what point but I do know I only wanted to see Saw 3d because Chester Bennington (r.i.p.) was in it. this one felt fresh to me for some reason, and I enjoyed watching it. I would say its worth a watch and if you have the rest of the movies already in your library, then this one is a definite. it is a mystery, but at the same time there’s 2-3 red herrings but which of them is it? or is it one of them? I’m trying to remember if any other of the previous movies has a ‘party trap’ as I called this one.
There’s one trap I did love but I really don’t want to ruin that one. Just get the blenders ready to make yourself a drink or smoothie before watching and THAT my friends is one beautiful ‘blood flower’ at the end! (yes I can have a morbid sense of humor at times)
