If violence is going to be your calling card, you have to make a choice: big gore or horrific exploitation. You don't get to do both.

Saw IV builds an over-elaborate game, and it's unable to escape its own game ultimately killing itself.

The first thing you see in Saw IV is Jigsaw's balls. A sign of things to come? Most definitely.

There's the obligatory twist at the end, which hardly makes up for the excruciating boredom viewers are forced to endure. But, hey, if you're paying for torture, expect to suffer.

We now find ourselves in the downward slope of the Saw series as Saw IV stretches credibility to the breaking point.

Jigsaw is an interesting character with an interesting worldview and an interesting way of carrying out his will. It's too bad the movies themselves aren't worthy of him.

This gruesomely efficient horror sequel shows noticeable wear and tear.

I do wish that these movies were well made, because I actually think the premises are quite clever, but unless a veteran who is more confident in his abilities takes over, we are left with what could have been...

Poor Jigsaw. The architect of the most deadly traps ever committed to celluloid has endured inoperable cancer, a debilitating car crash and even the premature death of his son, but nothing as painful or degrading as 'Saw IV.'

... any serious consideration of the killer's fascination with violence is superseded by the director's (and the returning viewers') own sadistic pleasures.

Outro típico exemplar da série: o final, como de hábito, é até engenhoso, mas a fórmula cada vez mais desgastada exige paciência até que cheguemos a ele.

Whereas the first Saw and the third met the right balance, the second film and now the fourth push things a little too far and end up being less effective as a result.

Were it not for the saving grace of Tobin Bell's mere presence, there's little doubt that Saw IV would come off about as well as a typical straight-to-video horror sequel.

Torture, you may recall, used to be an unparsable, unpardonable sin. Now it's porn.

Like many villains before him, John turns out to have been wronged rather randomly, an act of terrible violence that he absorbs into his worldview.

Opens with the clinically graphic dissection of the deceased Jigsaw, who finally lives up to (dies down to?) his name by being separated into pieces...

Might be the best since the first, but still a task to watch. A painful, meaningless task.

Previously, Jigsaw and the filmmakers played fair, but too much about this latest instalment seems simply arbitrary.

November 1, 2007
Stultifying in its pseudo-sensationalistic schlock, this numbingly and nightmarish narrative has no legitimate creepy conviction beyond flexing its meaningless, morose muscles

There's more gore in store. Now here's "Saw IV."
