Saw VI

Critics Consensus

It won't earn the franchise many new fans, but Saw VI is a surprising step up for what has become an intricately grisly annual tradition.

  • A very entertaining thing happens in the sixth movie: Saw tunes into society at large and focuses its punishment on predatory lenders and amoral insurance companies.

  • If you haven't followed the series up until now, there's not much point in trying to catch up.

  • This script, by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, has a more lyrical bent, and a more satiric bite, than any of the other Saw sequels.

    Oct 28, 2009 | Rating: 2/5
  • The usual critiques apply: terrible acting, zero suspense, laughable logic and the promise of another one next year.

  • A film so frighteningly familiar it could well be called Saw It Already.

  • The Saw series long ago cannibalized its cleverest bloodbath gimmicks, but now it's figured out a new way to torture us: by taking a barb-wire stab at political relevance.

    Saw VI is an even worse attempt than Saw V, the story was very forced though the new traps were somewhat interesting.

    Saw 4 and 5 might have been disappointments but my god Saw 6 is what we saw fans wanted, there might be more gore but the story is more interesting and the twist was just shocking. The only problem with this film is Betsy Russell as Jill, her performance is dreadful and so her demise in Saw 7 is quite pleasant to watch. I give this film 8/10.

    A return to form, Saw VI is an intense and suspenseful horror-thriller. While a shady insurance company CEO faces judgment in a Jigsaw trap, Jigsaw's accomplice, Detective Mark Hoffman, continues to try to throw suspicion off of himself as a joint task force closes in. Additionally, there are some interesting reveals about Jigsaw's backstory and Hoffman's role in the operation. The traps are quit inventive and are especially apt for the target. However, the gore is overdone at times and kind of undercuts the suspense. Yet overall, Saw VI is a noticeable improvement for the series.

    Saw 6 brings the films back to its best with an easy plot that still connects to the rest of the films and yet again answers them annoyingly left open questions we had, It felt like it should of been the final part what with the game bring played as part of Jigsaws last wish, The traps were great and very gory, All very unique and sadistic, The ending wasn't as good as the others as I guessed the twist early on but it's still a solid Sixth part that gets saw back on track.
