It's easily one of the freshest, sharpest and most enjoyable films of this year.

Nayan Gough

A great movie, one of the best of this year. There was a bit of confusion at one point in the plot, but nothing serious.

Great movie. Not sure what people expected but I found it highly entertaining.


Saw IV came out,who knew,like I always say. The film follows a new police officer has to go out on a horrible walk through at what the new Jigsaw is going to do to these horrible,guilty,ya,ya,ya people..for some reason. So,when Saw IV came out,I was actually kind of excited also because of the cool posters they released all over the internet..Saw is neat..but it sequels can not be,so the film opened with one of the actual most gruesome scenes in horror cinematic history and I kind of though,like,what the hell?! This is not a opening scene,this is just some random strangers examining the body of Jigsaw,like..what the f*ck?! This is so stupid and then even worse,the next scene,yes,the trap with those two people,like sure its creative but its so dumb!! ITS SO Dumb! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS?! WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS?! The next hour and a half of the film then bores us with awful gay writing,disgustingly horrible traps that make you wanna vomit on the woman beside you's shoes..I swear that did'int happen,na I was joking!! Saw IV..ahhhhh!..codswallop..


"Saw IV" concentrates on two story lines: what truly motivated Jigsaw (played by Tobin Bell) into putting people into traps; and a cop (played by Lyriq Bent) being tested by Bell to see how far Bent's obsession will go regarding Bent's need to save everyone. While the former is interesting and well played, the latter was forced, with Bent doing many things that were out of character despite the screenwriters trying to justify it with Bent's emotional problems.More bloody, heinous traps; more gruesome deaths of victims; more plot twists; more revelations; more mini cassettes with Bell's altered voice; more frenetic editing and transitions that move the story along rapidly…all leading to more reasons for fans of this series to squirm and laugh and gasp and enjoy the morbid nature of these stories.My most memorable, movie moment of "Saw IV" is the very detailed, disgusting, and fascinating autopsy scene. Unless you have a very strong stomach, this is not the time to be eating your hot dogs or chips and salsa.Four movies in, and the "Saw" movies still have lots of steam. How far can it go before going stale? I shall find out soon because I'll be checking out part V.Mannysmemorablemoviemoments


Plummeting into the sea of excess gore & violence, the 4th chapter of the Saw franchise continues to explore Jigsaw's background despite his demise in the preceding instalment and is as useless as sequels can get, for Saw III finished the saga on a satisfying, if not memorable, note and another one was certainly not required.There isn't much to mention about its plot. It takes the basic outline of the franchise i.e. trapping a few people in the sadistic games to make them pay for their misdeeds, and runs along with it. The few minute details that weren't tied up in the previous chapter are dealt with here, poorly. And the ending only signifies that there's more to come.Directed by Darren Lynn Bousman, Saw IV begins with Jigsaw's post-mortem, depicted in graphic detail, and it only gets more gruesome & violent from that point onwards. There's no real effort to streamline its narrative as the film is simply an array of one booby trap after another that do their job while the numerous twists n turns are hardly convincing.The story is heavily reliant on flashbacks and is unable to find a balance between the events set in past & ones unfolding in present. There's an effort to keep its look n feel in close proximity with its predecessors and Tobin Bell's performance as John Kramer/Jigsaw is able to keep things together to an extent but it isn't enough to overcome the massive shortcomings evident in other aspects.The film has no interest in telling a compelling story and solely exists to appease those who are content with on-screen violence even when narrative takes a backseat. The characters are mostly dull, torture sequences are devoid of any imagination, and the film as a whole is unable to justify its existence plus it is severely lacking in both direction & purpose. Only for die-hard fans of the franchise.


This movie is awful. The short 9 minute version of the first Saw movie is very scary. It 100000000000 time better then this pooh pooh. Saw (2004) is a better movie and that was awful. Saw II is better movie and that was awful. Saw III is a better movie and that was awful. This movie is badly written. It also badly edited. Dead bodies end up in to places at the same time. They are just don't know what there are doing. The ending is awful. This movie is pooh pooh. Do not see this movie. It is crap. It an overrated pile of stinky pile of pooh pooh with pee pee on top of it. Do not wast your money. Do not wast your time. This movie is not scary. It is just a big pile of pooh pooh.
