Saw VI (2009)

Special Agent Strahm is dead, and Detective Hoffman has emerged as the unchallenged successor to Jigsaw's legacy. However, when the FBI draws closer to Hoffman, he is forced to set a game into motion, and Jigsaw's grand scheme is finally understood.


Saw VI is definitely a step up from the going-through-the-motions Saw V. It stands with Saw III as the best sequel, over the disjointed Saw II and the tangent that was Saw IV. If VII continues the upswing, we could be in for a much more pleasant surprise. This installment ends the second trilogy of the series, wrapping up Hoffmans arc and Jigsaws last will and testament. The Saw series has always been good with continuity and thats probably because the entire franchises editor, Kevin Greutert, is the director of this one. The traps and deaths are much more creative this time around and the ending feels worlds more satisfying than the last few sequels. The health care issue in the film actually doesnt feel as tacked on and phony as many hypocritical critics are groaning it is. As long as they keep Tobin Bell around, the series should continue to be at least somewhat tolerable. Its definitely worth a watch and might spark your interest in the series again.
