Ok so I watched the first three movies and am currently watching a Let's Play of the video game.
Now I thought the first movie was actually kind of cool with it's mystery and story and the goings on of these 2 people trapped together. However the series quickly devolved into a slide show of death scenes, which is alright but they have to weave in this stupid ass story into it. I hate the fact that the killer uses the "Well he just couldn't do it in time, he killed himself." THE FUCKER IS SETTING UP FUCKING TRIP WIRES WITH SHOTGUNS IN WAREHOUSES AND SHIT, KIDNAPPING, PUTTING PEOPLE INTO DANGEROUS SITUATIONS, AND IF IT AIN'T MURDER IT'S ASSISTED SUICIDE AT BEST!!!!! This guy is a fucking genius and he keeps claiming he doesn't kill people when he should know that shit won't hold up anywhere!
I watched the let's play of Saw to see some more death and puzzles but the story is just as stupid. I thought it wouldn't be to close to the story of the films but no, I was wrong. The wife of the detective that got killed, BY ONE OF THIS FUCKER'S TRAPS THAT HE SET UP TO KILL THESE PEOPLE. is arguing against Jigsaw. She says something along the lines of you killed him. Jigsaw then says he killed himself because he fell into the trap. She replies with "You set up the trap!" Jigsaw replies that Tapp could've disarmed the trap. DESPITE THE FACT THAT HE HAD HIS THROAT SLIT AND WAS STRUGGLING TO DO ANYTHING AT THE TIME LET ALONE FINDING THE TRAP AND TRYING TO WARN HIS PARTNER!!!! She is then automatically on Jigsaw's side. WHAT THE FUCK!!! SHE IS THE MOST GULLIBLE BITCH IN THE WORLD!!!!
Now what's even worse is the series seems to try to make Jigsaw out as this good hearted man who is just a bit rough to put it mildly. Aw I have cancer, Aw my unborn kid died now I will kill everyone I know and everyone that litters on the street. The writers seem to want to write these victims as terrible people with the tell but don't show tactic. "You want to see these scums of the Earth die right?!" No, you seem to just get drug addicts who stole out of their mom's purse. That's not good but it's not the worst thing in the world either. When you try to write characters we are supposed to hate it comes off as pathetic when you suck at it. It ends up being some bland ass character with a tag-line that says "Oh yeah, this guys supposed to be a murderer so he's bad ok? Ok." NO! SHOW HE'S A BAD PERSON IN HIS ACTIONS AND PERSONALITY WITHOUT BEING BORING AND BLAND! SUBLTY GUYS!
Jigsaw also comes off as an evil rip off of Batman. He has a plan for things even after he dies. Log into the Jigsaw computer and you got a bunch of traps and future victims and how the traps and events in the film are going to turn out. It works for Batman cause at least he's likable and has a lot of good stories around him and he's a comic book character. Your some fucker who acts like a bitch trying to justify your actions through faulty logic.
