Texas Chainsaw 3D Reviews
Try as [Luessenhop] might to honor the original -- flashbulb transitions, a skeevy (yet buff) hitchhiker, metal doors, and meat hooks -- there's little of its mounting dread.
With acting that falls way under the bar, poorly written characters, a ten year gap that everyone ignores, and a pretty laughable storyline, Texas Chainsaw is somewhat watchable thanks to the legacy its built on that it nearly pisses all over.
Director John Luessenhop delivers some jolts as well as much gruesomeness, but a bogus ending and the convoluted morality of a script that tries to transform the vengeful Leatherface into a sympathetic if psychotic antihero hamstrings his efforts.
( ... ) you might want to imagine I'm wielding a chainsaw that's making the noise rrrrrrrrrrrLLLLLLLLL! And that, as I write, I'm chopping up the three scriptwriters and three story writers on the grounds of over-manning (ditto, nine producers).
