I think that was the point.I mean,JIGSAW is the villain,so we're not meant to agree with his mantras.

Well, time to review Saw IV. Also, ignore that postive comment I left a few pages back. I was young and didn't know better.
 
The good:
 
Some of the acting: For a shlocky horror movie, the acting isn't terrible. There's one exception that I'll get to in the ugly.
 
Donnie Wahlberg's devotion: I've gotta hand it to Wahlberg for coming back. It's gotta suck to just stand on a block of ice for a couple days. Then again, he probably got paid a sh*t load of money.
 
The bad:
 
The story: As sloppy as Saw III's script was, this out-does it! Seriously, how's the main character guilty of anything? He wants to save everyone. What's wrong with that? Hell, that's what Jigsaw wants to do as well! It's just that Jigsaw's method involves horribly maiming people.
 
Darren Lynn Bousman: It's obvious that Bousman didn't have his heart into this. He wanted to do Repo! The Genetic Opera first, but the recording process took too long. His direction is half-assed, but I'd rather watch Saw IV a trillion times before Repo again!
 
The ugly:
 
Costas Mandylor: This guy cannot act! He's boring and he's insufferable. The decision to make him the main villain of the series was a BIG miscalculation.
 
Well, that's Saw IV. It's not as bad as the next one though. Grade: C+
 
Next-up: Saw V!

Repeat post!
The Four Horsemen of the Moviepocalypse: uncalled for sequels/remakes/reboots, 3-D surcharges, untalented "celebrities", and anything with Michael Bay's name attached to it.

The movies suffer a curse I don't know what's called.After 3 movies,the audience knows the pattern,especially that there will be a twist endin'(that's why Shyamalan's 1st. 3 movies THE 6TH. SENSE,UNBREAKABLE and SIGNS were hits,and the 3 last ones THE VILLAGE,LADY IN THE WATER and THE HAPENNING weren't).
 
The movies are the best horror movies,'cuz they're deep,but they focus a lil'too much on the blood,and people don't see what's "inside".
 
The 3rd. is the last one that's great,and I blame Leigh wannell for not writin'them anymore.The rest are O.K.,but they keep gettin'worse'cuz after JIGSAW dies,his games continue,'cuz we don't know where the saga is goin'.

I'm not a huge fan of the Saw movies, was just wondering if they would have to change The Release date due to The Writers Strike. I think that Saw VI should come out October 30th, 2009, since that's when they release most of The Saw films, around Halloween...

Saw V (Lionsgate): In October 24, 2008 (this one should be pushed back by a week because Halloween (October 31) falls on a Friday!
Saw VI (Lionsgate): In October 30, 2009

I finally got around to seeing this. It was actually good. My dad likes it as well. There was some nice kill scenes. We both felt it was an improvement over "Saw III". I liked that one, he didn't. Overall, this wasn't as good as "Hostel Part II".

I usually like Cary Elwes. He was good in The Princess Bride, Robin Hood: Men in tights (He was more convincing as Robin Hood than Kevin Costner was, even though the movie was a comedy), and I heard he was quite good in Kiss the Girls. But something just seemed off about him in Saw. I can't pinpoint what exactly it was, but he didn't do much for me in that one.

Why does everyone hate Cary Elwes in the first one? For thier first practice/rehearsal as a scene in the movie, I thought it was pretty good.

I've said it before, but in The Saw movies Tobin Bell always gives a good performance (Is he even in Saw 4?). Donnie Wahlberg was also ok in parts two and three. The other actors aren't good, though. Cary Elwes gave the worst performance of his career in the first Saw. Danny Glover also seemed to be coasting in that one. As for Saw 3, the girl that played Amanda is much better as a victim than a villain. I still haven't seen Part 4.
