It's somewhat better put together than Saw II or III, though there isn't a scare in it.

The first thing you see in Saw IV is Jigsaw's balls. A sign of things to come? Most definitely.

Easily the worst and most pointless episode of the gore-saturated quadrology.

Poor Jigsaw. The architect of the most deadly traps ever committed to celluloid has endured inoperable cancer, a debilitating car crash and even the premature death of his son, but nothing as painful or degrading as 'Saw IV.'

This gruesomely efficient horror sequel shows noticeable wear and tear.

An excessively convoluted rehash of its predecessors.

It is impossible to take a movie seriously when the movie obviously doesn't care if you do or not.

Might be the best since the first, but still a task to watch. A painful, meaningless task.

I do wish that these movies were well made, because I actually think the premises are quite clever, but unless a veteran who is more confident in his abilities takes over, we are left with what could have been...

Brian Orndorf

By far the best installment of this cringingly moronic odyssey of pain. There's something to be said about leaving a theater with only a mild cultural headache instead of a knee-buckling case of cinematic depression.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Perfunctory and confusing and needlessly over-plotty...but somewhat better-constructed and significantly less morally outrageous than at the very least Saw III.

Jigsaw is an interesting character with an interesting worldview and an interesting way of carrying out his will. It's too bad the movies themselves aren't worthy of him.

After two solid entries and an OK one, the franchise is getting long in the tooth: This one is Saw It Be-IV.

Stultifying in its pseudo-sensationalistic schlock, this numbingly and nightmarish narrative has no legitimate creepy conviction beyond flexing its meaningless, morose muscles

... any serious consideration of the killer's fascination with violence is superseded by the director's (and the returning viewers') own sadistic pleasures.

Two of the more degrading and debasing hours of big-screen "entertainment" that you are likely to endure in this lifetime.

Saw IV almost makes you believe there are hundreds of rooms out there at this very minute with puppets, tricycles, and audio tapes just waiting for the next game.
