Saw 3D: The Final Chapter (2010)

Director: Kevin Greutert

Starring: Tobin Bell, Costas Mandylor, Betsy Russell, Cary Elwes, and lots of main characters from the previous films.

More info: IMDb

Tagline: The Traps Come Alive

Plot: As a deadly battle rages over Jigsaw's brutal legacy, a group of Jigsaw survivors gathers to seek the support of self-help guru and fellow survivor Bobby Dagen, a man whose own dark secrets unleash a new wave of terror.

My rating: 5.5/10

Will I watch it again? No.

Well, it's over, it's finally over. I liked the first one very much although it's flawed and the sequels were interesting if for just the traps and the wildly ridiculous ways the film makers were able to keep this gravy train running but it had to stop and I'm glad they're done. It's funny that one of the main recurring actors, Mandylor (as Det. Hoffman) who was pretty bad in the previous pictures, turns in his best performance in this one. I like how they brought Elwes back to bookend the series. You can't get too deep into these movies because they're so over the top and ludicrous. The ending puts the final nail in the coffin to a series that should've stopped a couple of pictures ago. If they make another one it's going to have to be a self-referential comedy because they've been skating on thin plot ice for too long. Hell, most of the sequels are pretty laughable as it is.
