Saw 3D (2010) - Rotten Tomatoes

Saw 3D (2010)



Critic Consensus: Sloppily filmed, poorly acted, and illogically plotted, Saw 3D leaves viewers trapped in the most lackluster installment of the series.

Movie Info

The Saw series continues with this seventh entry, spearheaded by returning Saw VI director Kevin Greutert. Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton also are back to pen the script, which details the exploits of serial killer Jigsaw's surviving victims, who seek counseling from a self-help mentor (Sean Patrick Flanery) whose past as a previous victim figures directly into each one's fate. Cary Elwes returns to the franchise for the first time since his character survived Jigsaw's first cinematic outing in 2004. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovimore

If you've been disappointed with the way the series has been going up until this point, Saw 3D isn't exactly going to change how you feel.

Saw 3D is the seventh Saw I've seen, and maybe the sickest-which is exactly what I said about Saw VI.

Georgia Straight

The 3D effects don't help at all in this bland and easily-forgettable entry in the long-running series.

Another thin Saw franchise installment. Fans of the series will find plenty of the same horrors to enjoy but the film furthers the series' decline into mediocrity.

Full Review… | October 5, 2012

If only the people behind this series would watch some of the older horror films to discover what makes them good. Although, after six clones of the same film, it seems unlikely that they'll ever be able to figure it out.

Full Review… | September 22, 2012

Unlikely to satisfy anyone but its most loyal fans, this brings the series to a stumbling close.

Audience Reviews for Saw 3D

The series hits rock bottom with a ridiculous and completely unnecessary 3D, painful acting, an illogical mess of a plot and some of the most repellent scenes they could come up with - and it is a relief to think that this is the final chapter, or so we hope.

The final chapter at last! Really enjoyed all the Saw films, but even I'll admit the whole franchise has been milked way too much. This last installment is more of the same, surprise surprise, but most fans should be satisfied enough. It's all extremely fast-paced and doesn't stop to take a breather at all and picks up where the sixth one left us with a wounded detective Hoffman continuing his twisted games of carnage and also leaving a bloody mess behind against those who threaten to reveal his identity. Lots of gore and dismemberment fly all over the place with the help of 3D effects and with at least one of the traps making it into my top 10 there's lots to enjoy for lovers of ultraviolence. I was expecting something special when it came to the trademark twist ending but it didn't quite have the impact I was hoping for to be honest, but it was a fitting conclusion to the franchise... as long as another doesn't come along to ruin it. Not quite my favourite of the sequels but it was a worthwhile effort I thought.

A horrendous waste of time; "Saw 3D" is senseless, sloppy and, ultimately stupid.
