The First Reviews For Jigsaw Are In…And They Aren’t Too Great

The latest entry into the Saw franchise, Jigsaw, has some early reviews coming in, and, they aren’t so great. Garnering a score on the Tomatometer of 47% with a considerable improvement of 66% from the audience, Jigsaw isn’t off to the best start. Of course it is unlikely that these reviews will stop fans of the franchise from watching the film, as the series seems to have a fairly large and dedicated following. You can check out some excerpts of the reviews below.

“Jigsaw” is simply the same old stuff, only more deflated and desperate, missing visual oomph, ghoulish imagination, and a reason to be.


“As a one-off serving fans a nostalgic dose of a mid-2000s fad, it’s just what the coroner ordered.”

“It’s fun to watch. I just don’t think it’s the kind of fun the filmmakers’ planned.”


“He’s up to his old tricks again, even though he’s been dead for a decade, and by old tricks, I mean old-and-musty.”

While I am not a huge fan of blood and guts type horror, I have always found a nice balance with the Saw films as far as a psychological aspect mixed in with gore. While the reviews aren’t great, the franchise seems to hold up better over several films than other horror series do, meaning, I think Saw IV, is a better overall film, than say A Nightmare on Elm Street 4: The Dream Master.

I have always felt that the critics on RottenTomatoes are a bit harsh, and that IMDb is a little too forgiving. Having said that, my tastes are more aligned with IMDb, so I always give a film a chance, even with rotten Tomatometer scores.
