It's strange that a few people have been saying that this entry is a step in the right direction for the franchise. The only right step this franchise could take would be to end.

This script, by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, has a more lyrical bent, and a more satiric bite, than any of the other Saw sequels.

Don't have a desire to see victims ripped limb-from-limb, cut in half and watch their insides spill out onto the floor? Avoid Saw VI at all costs.

Saw VI's story is now so ugly and bent out of shape, it's impossible to follow - more fool you for trying.

The never-ending Saw horror franchise continues. Sigh. Fans and non-fans will get exactly what they expect, and not much more.

It's funny, but the thing that the series seems to have lost track of amidst all the soap opera and moralizing is the idea that these are horror films.

They keep reviving dead characters to keep the poor excuse for a story going. When will it all end? Jigsaw is dead, everyone's dead. Please make it stop! Paul Chambers, CNN.

Sixth film in revenge series is just as bloody as the rest.

Who can expect something worthy of good reviews after the sixth installment? That said, I'm assuming the creators of Saw walked into the movie deciding, 'We're going to make a stupid, gory movie and everyone will watch it because it's Halloween!'

No longer just gruesome but also morally bloodied, this franchise about games of death aimed at those who need to understand the value of life - grinds along, wringing out whatever cash is left in the original idea.

"Saw" movies gave up on being scary several episodes ago, but there's no suspense or surprise either. Watching its grim procession of carnage is like sticking with a favorite pro football team for the last 8 games after it's already clear they're doomed.

...a worthy and faithful entry in a franchise which at this point seems expressly designed to document people dying in increasingly inventive ways.

Saw VI plays like the last gasp for relevance of a heavy-metal series that has not only gone regurgitation-rusty but seems lacking much of a will to live.

While the social commentary is as shallow as ever, the film's overall quality is better than the last two installments. That isn't saying much, but it's something.

For the next installment, I think Jigsaw should time travel into the past and mess with the ancestors of his enemies. That would be cool!

These movies lack a whole lot of panache.

Would it kill these producers to take a few chances for the next adventure? It's easy to loathe a Saw picture, but to be utterly bored by one seems an unpardonable offense.

A triumph (a very relative triumph) for two reasons: first, it is not so confusing as Saw IV, and second, it is not so sleepy and wholly pointless as Saw V.

Headache-inducing, and featuring one of the worst D-movie performances of the aughts from Costas Mandylor, the latest "Saw" franchise addition is more of the same torture-punishment-rehab-porn audiences have come to expect.
