Which brings us to "Jigsaw," which fails for very much the same reasons as "The Mummy" - It was made to launch a franchise rather than because it was actually about something.

Seven years after Saw 3D, you would've expected a back-to-basics approach, but Jigsaw doubles down on the franchise's twisty storytelling. It feels too long, and it's only 90 minutes.

Watching Jigsaw go about his torture business is about as interesting as watching a child burn ants - a dumb and ugly waste of energy, resources and time.

A slick soulless horror flick just in time for Halloween, more trick than treat.

He's up to his old tricks again, even though he's been dead for a decade, and by old tricks, I mean old-and-musty.

Torture-porn fans rejoice! The franchise that lumbered on for seven films and grossed almost a billion dollars has been revived, meaning that another group of luckless so-and-so's are facing a series of gruesome tests that they probably won't survive.
