Sloppily filmed, poorly acted, and illogically plotted, Saw 3D leaves viewers trapped in the most lackluster installment of the series.

It's the kitchen-sink chapter.
Fast-paced and straight-faced, and full of "ewwww!' moments that play up to the film's effectively cheesy use of 3D.
Though the film hardly ends the series on a triumphant note, it still qualifies as one of the better entries.
Like a stumpy limb requiring quick cauterization via steam pipe (our first cringe), the Saw series is begging for closure.
Strange, dumb, and sometimes even fun.
This series never cared for filmmaking. It never cared for human life. Now it doesn't even care for its audience or itself, scraping together the gist of the other movies, simply in order to have something to sell for Halloween.
If you've been disappointed with the way the series has been going up until this point, Saw 3D isn't exactly going to change how you feel.
Saw 3D is the seventh Saw I've seen, and maybe the sickest-which is exactly what I said about Saw VI.
The 3D effects don't help at all in this bland and easily-forgettable entry in the long-running series.
Another thin Saw franchise installment. Fans of the series will find plenty of the same horrors to enjoy but the film furthers the series' decline into mediocrity.
If only the people behind this series would watch some of the older horror films to discover what makes them good. Although, after six clones of the same film, it seems unlikely that they'll ever be able to figure it out.
Unlikely to satisfy anyone but its most loyal fans, this brings the series to a stumbling close.
The series hits rock bottom with a ridiculous and completely unnecessary 3D, painful acting, an illogical mess of a plot and some of the most repellent scenes they could come up with - and it is a relief to think that this is the final chapter, or so we hope.
The final chapter at last! Really enjoyed all the Saw films, but even I'll admit the whole franchise has been milked way too much. This last installment is more of the same, surprise surprise, but most fans should be satisfied enough. It's all extremely fast-paced and doesn't stop to take a breather at all and picks up where the sixth one left us with a wounded detective Hoffman continuing his twisted games of carnage and also leaving a bloody mess behind against those who threaten to reveal his identity. Lots of gore and dismemberment fly all over the place with the help of 3D effects and with at least one of the traps making it into my top 10 there's lots to enjoy for lovers of ultraviolence. I was expecting something special when it came to the trademark twist ending but it didn't quite have the impact I was hoping for to be honest, but it was a fitting conclusion to the franchise... as long as another doesn't come along to ruin it. Not quite my favourite of the sequels but it was a worthwhile effort I thought.
A horrendous waste of time; "Saw 3D" is senseless, sloppy and, ultimately stupid.
My new boss said she just watched the first 2 or 3 of this series (and horror's her favorite genre), stating that "they're all the same". I agree, but I disagree. Each one has a plot that's slightly different from the one before (like, who's in charge, Jigsaw dies, etc.), but....this series is one of my favorites ever, because from the very first movie (which I never saw until last year), the traps, or "games" have had me hooked and I've wanted to see all the ideas they could come up with. Only one "Saw" movie has left me disappointed, but it wasn't this one!
