The SEVENTH in the SAW series and Jigsaw, John Kramer (Tobin Bell) has been dead for a long while. But he still figures prominently in this film. That is because it is largely told by flashback. Bobby Dagen (Sean Patrick Flanery) is a self help guru who is a self proclaimed survivor of Jigsaw. He is using the experience to sell books and offer seminars. He has a group of survivors who tell their stories in flashback. But Jigsaw’s not through yet. He’s passed on his mission and his secrets to some other folk, and they are continuing his legacy. Adding to the fun is some visits by some characters from the past. Long past.

The Saw series has certainly run it’s course. The first one was full of holes, but quite shocking and unique, but it’s been done to death. I guess this film wasn’t as bad as some of the previous ones. I’ve gotten really tired of the whole thing. I stopped going to the theater after the 3rd one, but still feel a need to watch them on DVD. The problem with this film is that they simple connect together a bunch of clever traps and try to use as much blood and gore as possible to try to shock you. But after a while it doesn’t work anymore. I do have to admit, there are some clever puzzles in this one, but there isn’t anything new, really. This particular film is hard to follow. There are so many characters from the past that I’ve long forgotten that crop back up here. Like Trekkers who learn to speak Klingon and know every star date in history, there are Saw fans who know this series like that, and for those, they won’t be disappointed. From what I hear the story is wrapped up quite nicely. But unfortunately I can’t remember so far back as to the original film to remember who these characters are and how they fit in to the whole story. If you’re a fan of the Saw franchise, then go for it, but I’m sure you already have. If you’re not, but wondering if you’re missing anything, I don’t think so.
