|This is the 7th chapter in the horror series that takes us back to the beginning, wrapping up some loose
ends and reminding us of how stupid the whole thing has become.
To sum up, You will recall that Jigsaw (Tobin Bell), the cancer-ridden sociopath with the God complex who tortures people
until they appreciate life again; died. But that was maybe four movies ago. But, he
lives on through the magic of flashbacks, and thanks to the
tireless efforts of a police detective named Hoffman (Costas Mandylor), who continues to find Jigsaw victims. Jigsaw's widow, Jill (Betsy Russell), has told a detective named Gibson (Chad Donella) what she knows, which is plenty. In exchange for this, Hoffman will probably try to kill her.
Meanwhile, Hoffman teaches valuable lessons to one Bobby Dagen (Sean Patrick Flanery), who has gotten rich writing a book about his experience
as a Jigsaw survivor. Bobby has become an inspiration to many, in
particular his fellow survivors, who meet in support groups to talk
about their run-ins with Jigsaw. Many of them say that they genuinely
felt reborn after they escaped their traps.
If you've seen the last few films, you know the routine. Bobby has to
get through a series of traps in which he or one of his loved ones could
be killed or maimed, learning a new valuable life lesson with each
step. He has only 60 minutes in which to accomplish all of this and save
his wife (Gina Holden).
In this 7th film in the series, director Kevin Greutert seems to be just going through the motions, but this time he's compensated for the film's lack of ingenuity by having the guts splatter in three
dimensions. The trouble is, a little of this goes a long way; and there's a lot.
