Just been watching through the Saw films (1 - 6), as the new one will be being released soon (over here in the UK at least, not so sure about the rest of the world), but what's every ones feelings and opinions about the films. I've watched up to 5 at the moment and despite not being a massive fan of these types of films, have enjoyed them (if you can really use the term 'enjoy' under the subject and content of the films).
Sure they're overly gruesome and the shock values a bit ott, but I find the motives of the jigsaw character to be somewhat justified in his actions, well not to the point of killing someone, but the idea of redemption through ones actions and having that choice, seems to at least give some sort of logic behind it all. So that concept makes these films watchable to me, as some subjects relate to injustices in today's society.
The plot seems to have gone off a bit though, but it'll be interesting to see where it goes from here and obviously ends.
Sure, they're not the best set of films in the world, far from it in fact...but the people behind them...sure brought something different to a tried and tested genre.
So does anyone else appreciate the films to any level? Despite the sadistic nature of the films, I feel there is another layer to them all, what does everyone else think?
