This was actually better than I expected but still not as good as the original Saw or Saw III.

Im just waiting for some kind of a boxset so I can get all 4 for a lower price.

Defiantly better than Saw III IMHO. I really love this one and I was hopping to release all of them in box set or something. Until now, there is a possibility for double dip Saw and Saw III with DC so I really don't know if I should buy them all separately or wait for maybe year or two and buy the ultimate set

It is not better than part III or the first two but it is only slightly inferior or less worthy than any of the films of the original trilogy - it's still really entertaining. The second sequence that opens the movie is especially crazy/awesome.

The only thing that drags it down IMO, is the fact that the story and staging of the traps this time seem just a little too out there and are unecessarily complex to the point they strain believability. Also that the movie answers only a handful of questions left from the original trilogy - while asking a crapload more. Plus it doesn't seem to fit as well with the first three films.

However, it is worthy. The extra depth into the origins of Jigsaw and some of the strong performances of the relatively unknown actors really make it all compelling - and make you willing to suspend your disbelief.

I'll probably buy it day and date - however, I hope they re-release part 1 on BD as an unrated SE too. The current BD of part 1 is bare bones BS.

"It's a trap"

Since when did Admiral Ackbar become the spokesperson for saw IV?

High fives to whoever photoshops Ackbar's head onto the scale.

sick traps ? I really dont care about the traps, all I care is the story, and the story was okay,

the traps are fun, but the story and the twists are the main reason I love Saw

i completley agree with you, as long as the traps are fun, idc, i do love the saw series even though i hate hostel and all the other shitass torture porn films, i love it because of the story and all of the twists and turns.

saw III's my favorite, idk why everyone thinks it sucks, i think it was the best twist with amanda and jeff and lynn and all that, with a good ending, i loved how (SSPPOOIILLEERR) saw IV happend right on top of saw III
