Saw VI is about as tragically boring and uninspiring as horror movies come. It's yet another example of the gore-filled franchise running out of steam, and fast.
Although Saw IV still struggles to recapture the magic of the original, it's nevertheless a delightfully bloody and entertaining horror film with some surprisingly effective twists.
Saw III is a fresh third entry in the long-running franchise thanks to its surprisingly intense story, fun trap sequences, and its portrayal of grief and loss.
Saw II may have more in store for blood-thirsty horror fans with its gory and twisted traps, but it's at the expense of telling a compelling story.
