Was it as bad as many say it is? Short answer is, no.
I wouldn't hesitate to say that it was one of the weaker films in the franchise, but it sure does reward loyal viewers, or anyone who stuck to the main underlying story (YES, there is a plot!).
Everything was answered, it even resolved issues from the very first!
The bad things were: the hastiness in some parts, they really could have worked on some bits; the 3-D gimmick... would it have been so hard just to call it Saw 7 at the very least?; misuse of several characters, they had the actors from previous films, people like the characters they play, USE THEM!; and a couple of scenes were just pure pointlessness (if that's a proper word).
However this (sadly enough, I am hoping it is the) final instalment of the series ties up all the loose ends, and most of you viewers would agree that the ending was pretty darn "rad".
