wonder how deep this series will go. the first two were solid, the third saw (no pun intended) a big drop off. this one was even worse that the third. things that need work: writing and acting. things they did right: gore level, twist at the end. the contraptions weren’t as thoughtful and there was only one actual scare. much of the plot was a prequel of sorts that explains how jigsaw’s life derailed. it goes beyond the initial explanation of mere cancer patient turned sour. they drag his wife into the story for the first time and it didn’t do much for me; this plotline felt more like filler than anything else. it is what it is.
