Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) emerges as the next heir to Jigsaw's twisted legacy, but as the FBI closes in, he sets in motion a game that is designed to reveal Jigsaw's grand scheme.
" The latest installment of the movie franchise is as customer-service-oriented as ever. "
" Who knew that the franchise's creators would eventually find a plot twist that made sense? "
" Yes: a horror movie about health insurance. "
" A film so frighteningly familiar it could well be called Saw It Already. "
" After six installments, it's not exactly cutting edge. "
" If you haven't followed the series up until now, there's not much point in trying to catch up. "
" Saw VI doesn't come close to reigniting the spark of the original, but at least it approaches coherence, which is more than can be said for the last several installments of the series. "
" The Saw series long ago cannibalized its cleverest bloodbath gimmicks, but now it's figured out a new way to torture us: by taking a barb-wire stab at political relevance. "
" The usual critiques apply: terrible acting, zero suspense, laughable logic and the promise of another one next year. "
" These movies lack a whole lot of panache. "
" This script, by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, has a more lyrical bent, and a more satiric bite, than any of the other Saw sequels. "
