The ultimate in modern horror...
It's a rare occurrence, but get ready to see this more then once. Saw 4
plays more like a detective story lifted from a page of a who-dun-it
novel. This time, we delve deeper into John's past, his ex-wife, and
the real secrets about what made him Jigsaw. During his autopsy, it's
reveled his stomach contains an audio tape. The tape warns that his
work will continue.
It seems that die-hard fans don't wish to know about what's in the
story, since I had to re-edit my comment so that none of the story
would be revealed (except that which you see in the ads anyway). In my
previous comment, I said nothing about the ending, yet just giving away
some of the plot is enough of a no-no. I don't blame them, since this
4th outing has too many elements that make it easier to predict what's
going to happen. Regardless, you'd have to be some kind of rare genius
to figure out what will happen in the end.
The series has flowed like a smooth, well-oiled Rube Goldberg machine.
It's the most complex of the bunch, in some ways, outdoing the previous
ones. I repeat: it begs to be watched again. Just when you thought that
the previous Saw Traps had done everything they can to a human body,
this one has some clever ones of it's own (not as gruesome as Saw 3,
though). The autopsy scene is set to the extreme; the MPAA stating that
most viewers have now gotten used to seeing programs like CSI and other
medical procedures, so they let this slide easier.
Deceptive, dark, very edgy and well written, the Saw series can easily
end here. It's almost necessary to have watched the previous Saws, but
can stand on it's own as one of the best of the chapters. Of course, it
leaves it open for yet another in the series, which will be in
production soon. I don't know when I will tire of the series, but
honestly, I can't wait to see what other delicious traps they cook up
