Saw 3D Reviews

  • Saw 3D is sicko-exploitative, viscera-spewing trash, but at least it has a lean and mean pace and focus, and it isn't clotted with backstory.

    Owen Gleiberman — Entertainment Weekly

  • Be aware: if you see the film in a theater equipped with RealD 3D and Dolby sound, you'll come away with a pretty good idea of what it would feel like to have flying body parts hit you in the face.

    Mike Hale — New York Times

  • This series never cared for filmmaking. It never cared for human life. Now it doesn't even care for its audience or itself, scraping together the gist of the other movies, simply in order to have something to sell for Halloween.

    Wesley Morris — Boston Globe

  • The same old putrid corpse.

    Nick Schager — Village Voice

  • You know things are bad when you've started feeling sorry for your villain.

    Elizabeth Weitzman — New York Daily News

  • Strange, dumb, and sometimes even fun.

    Ignatiy Vishnevetsky — Chicago Reader

  • Saw 3D is the dumbest and most illogical entry in the Saw series -- quite an accomplishment, given that the Saw movies are the dumbest, most illogical series of horror films of the millennium.

    Adam Graham — Detroit News

  • At least for non-fans, the sole mercy shown by Lionsgate's latest Saw is that it's billed as the last and plays that way, wrapping things up without the threat of making another killing after this one.

    Rob Nelson — Variety

  • It's all bunk and has been for years.

    Roger Moore — Orlando Sentinel

  • Though the film hardly ends the series on a triumphant note, it still qualifies as one of the better entries.

    Jason Anderson — Toronto Star

  • I'm grateful that I (presumably) never have to see any more of these ever again.

    Andrew O'Hehir — Salon.com

  • It's unfortunate that the creators killed off their villain so early in the series, since Mandylor's Hoffman is an exceedingly bland stand-in.

    Frank Scheck — Hollywood Reporter

  • Cinema's premier torture-porn franchise at long last comes to a grisly end with Saw 3D, its seventh and possibly most meritless entry. And that's saying something.

    Michael Ordona — Los Angeles Times

  • If you've been disappointed with the way the series has been going up until this point, Saw 3D isn't exactly going to change how you feel.

    Matt Joseph — We Got This Covered

  • Saw 3D is the seventh Saw I've seen, and maybe the sickest-which is exactly what I said about Saw VI.

    Steve Newton — Georgia Straight

  • The 3D effects don't help at all in this bland and easily-forgettable entry in the long-running series.

    John Hanlon — Big Hollywood

  • Another thin Saw franchise installment. Fans of the series will find plenty of the same horrors to enjoy but the film furthers the series' decline into mediocrity.

    Ben Kendrick — ScreenRant

  • If only the people behind this series would watch some of the older horror films to discover what makes them good. Although, after six clones of the same film, it seems unlikely that they'll ever be able to figure it out.

    Jeff Beck — Examiner.com

  • Unlikely to satisfy anyone but its most loyal fans, this brings the series to a stumbling close.

    James Luxford — The National

  • It wasn't the finale I had wanted, relying mostly on unimpressive revisions on previous films attempting to create a series-spanning plot against one man.

    Wesley Lovell — Cinema Sight
