The story is stretched to it's limits, it has way to many back flashes but that's to remind us what's been going on from the past series, it's not confusing unless you haven't seen the others. Nice traps and a better twist than Saw V, in fact I found this a lot better than Saw V altogether and that is saying a lot because it has the grittiness of the first three films and it is back to basic's. The acting was very good from the cast but Costas Mandylor could've been a bit better but to me is still Hoffman, and would never swap him for anyone else. It's always a thrill to see Tobin Bell back as John/Jigsaw (Even if it is in flashbacks, though it does feel that they may have killed him off to early, in Saw III). This film had the setting to be the last and after a great twist showed that there will be another one. Still, great gore scenes and all credit to the writers for filling in the gaps. Saw VII (Saw 3D will be the last). Nice to see Amanda (Character from Saw, Saw II and II) back in it. This film is back to basic of what Saw is all about. Great film in the edition and possible the best sequel so far.
