Saw 3D (Saw VII) - 2010

This is supposed to be the final chapter in the Saw series. The concept is as always; People getting punished for their crimes with horrible traps and games. Still, the story does not rapidly alter in strange new ways, like in the other movies.

The "traps/game" story largely concerns Bobby Dagen (Sean Patrick Flanery), a survivor of Jigsaw who is being truly tested after being kidnapped after a promotional appearance for his book, which details how he survived and how it changed his life. Like Jeff from III or William from VI, his game often requires him to hurt himself to prevent the trapped person from dying, a method that usually fails. But the similarities to those superior films renders a lot of this stuff sort of dull, because his test is more about Jigsaw getting back at him rather than something that might improve his life, and thus less dramatically satisfying. Jeff and William were flawed individuals, Bobby's just a spineless jerk. 

This movie brings a lot of new factors into the series. It contains some humor, which have been gone from the series for quite a while. The traps are new and exiting. And they fit perfect into the 3D effects. Saw 3D opens a new door in the Saw series with original thinking and a good story.

Rating: 9/10
