Saw 3D: The Final Chapter [Blu-Ray] Kevin Greutert
The Saw franchise is much like watching Friends: you mock it, yet you can't understand why, how or when you voluntarily watched all of the series and what attracted you to it in the first place. Luckily, Lionsgate realized that fans/mindless spectators of the series have started to pick up on this fact and decided to add the ever so popular (for now) gimmick of 3D technology to the world of Jigsaw in hopes of reviving and outdoing the thrills and chills that were evident in previous instalments. In the latest, the new Jigsaw (Costas Mandylor) decides to taunt self-help guru Bobby Dagen (Sean Patrick Flanery), a man who has made his riches off lying about being a survivor of one of Jigsaw's previous tests. He is put into a real test to try to save his closest family members and colleagues, and just like previous entries, the results are catastrophic. Anybody who has remained a loyal fan of the series will find themselves numb, bored and unaffected by the violence that sprays onto the screen, and will also find themselves disappointed by the lack of 3-D gags the film promises to deliver in its marketing campaign. Despite having a few moments of chuckling at Cary Elwes and Scream Queens season two winner Gabby's expense, Saw 3D is just another blood-splattered sequel that will be forgotten about as soon as the next arrives in theatres. (Don't believe the "Final Chapter" in the title, there will be more blood, trust me.) If you are one of the lucky few that has money to waste on a fully capable 3D HDTV, a 3D Blu-Ray player and 3D glasses, you will be privy to special features that include informative audio commentaries from both the producers and writers, deleted and extended gore sequences, music videos no one will watch and a morbid featurette recounting all the Saw traps used in the series. However, if you don't have thousands of dollars to spend on new technology, the standard DVD is also included and trust me, you won't be missing a thing. (Maple)
