Saw 3D: Rusty and Dangerous
There are no doubts that saw 3D will follow in the footsteps of its predecessors and become a financial success, but are the movies all gore and no story?
The Saw movies revolve around the traps that have been set by the jigsaw killer, John Kramer, and his many apprentices. It is explained that John’s traps are aimed to improve the victim’s lives, by teaching them the skills they need to mend their damaged lives. Although John’s intentions are good one of his apprentices, Amanda, does not follow his rules and sets traps that are, in theory, unbeatable. I say in theory as it is John’s philosophy that nothing is unbeatable it all depends on how much you want to live.
After John’s death his apprentices are left in a power struggle to see who will carry on the legacy.
Saw 3D is the seventh and final film in the franchise. It aims to tie up any loose ends and bring the story to a conclusion. The trailer reveals that in this movie Jigsaw aims to get everyone, including the audience by means of state of the art 3D. While it is unlikely anyone will get dragged into the screen (like on the trailer) it does justify the use of 3D.
The trailer shows a trap where two men are sitting in front of buzz saws, with the woman they are both ‘involved with’ is between them being lowered onto another saw. This may sound like just another day at the office for Jigsaw (or at least his apprentices) but this time, like I said before, jigsaw wants to get everybody, so these poor individuals are on display for all to see.
The survivors of previous traps get another go around as well. It is explained that they have gather together for some kind of support group, but have now been targeted to see if they can survivor twice (starting to sound like Final Destination). The film also marks the long awaited return of Gordon who crawled away in the first one never to be seen again, much like Chuck from happy days. In Saw 3D there is a flashback that explains that after escaping he used a hot pipe to cauterize his wound.
The movie comes out on the 29th of October, aka this Friday.
