Saw 3D – Review

Last review for a little while don’t worry.

Clearly Saw 3D is not a particularly good film and won’t be winning any awards outside of the horror specific ceremonies.

However as someone who has seen the previous six installment this final film was quite satisfying. Most of the film was just another trap but the return of Cary Elwes brought the series full circle. For me Saw is not all about the gore and traps, after the original feature the films have always featured some amazing ambitious retcon sequences as plot twists are forced to work using scenes from previous films reshot to include an extra character.

Saw 3D is no exception and once all the torn flesh and endless screaming is done with we are treating to one final retcon montage that I found oddly exciting.

My own personal needs aside Saw 3D is a pretty grim watch and I am starting to rethink my stance on 3D. No longer is it fun in a novelty sense so I’m more than happy for 3D to be scrapped altogether.

With Saw you know you’re getting horrible images, bad dialogue and the most convoluted plot on film. Saw 3D does not disappoint.

Out Now – 29th October 2010

You’ve got to love autumn, good films are coming out on a regular basis. Today I’m adding three more to my watch list.

Burke and Hare
It’s going to be a pretty broad comedy with slapstick, toilet humour and comedy corpses but with this British comedy cast I can’t resist. Pegg and Stevenson reunite!

The Kids Are All Right
It’s and Oscar buzzed film with an indie feel. Two artificially inseminated children of a lesbian couple bring their biological dad into the mix.

Out of the Ashes
A documentary about the Afghan cricket team. I don’t like cricket… period.

Saw 3D
Gore and shocks, 3D and in your face. Guilty pleasure ahoy!

The Hunter limited release
A Persian language film in which a man kills some cops, then gets chased into a forest by two more cops. “They are lost in a maze, a desolate landscape, where the boundaries between the hunter and the hunted are difficult to perceive.” Blimey.

Involuntary (limited release)
A Swedish flick about people getting up to mischief.

Spiderhole (limited release)
A low budget horror featuring London student squatters as the victims. Bloody students.

This Prison Where I Live (limited release)
The Guardian says, “A brave documentary about a jailed Burmese comedian that is unfortunately stymied by the very censorship it is seeking to attack.”
