Firstly before I delve into the reasons why this movie is actually the worst in the Saw franchise by far and probably the poorest 3d film I have ever seen, I would like to say that before Saw 3d I would have considered myself a total fanboy of Saw, well not anymore.
I am that strange person that has seen all the previous movies and (at the risk of sounding weird) enjoyed them as well as defending there intriguing faux morality and quality script,well I cannot defend this crap.
Firstly the technical quality of the 3d can only be described as piss poor as on many occasions I felt I was watching it in 2d and moreover the scenes specially constructed due to the 3d element were stereotypical as well as poorly executed and didn't really add to the enjoyment of the movie.
Throughout the film my thoughts and feelings really can be summed up in the old saying "been there, done that, got the t shirt" as it was a case of same old same old but actually worse than previous films.
Moreover I have read previous reviews of the film that say that Saw 3d's plot was illogical and I couldn't agree more but I would also add the words, boring, empty and a insult to my intelligence and not worth the vastly inflated ticket price.
It is clear to me that essentially Saw 3d is a "bums on seats film" that is the people behind it just want to get as many people to part with there hard earned cash as possible with no consideration of the quality of the film and the enviable bad reviews it would receive.
Fundamentally this is wrong in principle but against a background of decreasing cash to spend to provide an escape from this increasingly austere world,it makes me very angry.
In short I paid £11.50 to watch this film on Halloween and I wished I hadn't bothered.
The end to the saw franchise could have been breathtaking as well as clever but instead was the film equivalent of processed cheese, that is it was tasteless.
