Box Office Update

Sequel or Prequel?

From alot of the reviews I read, people missed the excessive gore and complicated story line, and from alot of weird places you wouldn't expect. So I think the movie would've been more successful if they just continued from 3d, which after reading some reviews Jigsaw 2 might be a clash of worlds ( mix of the new style and characters which I really enjoyed/ and bringing back old characters and answering questions with nasty traps and the good ol green/ yellow color scheme) at least that's what I would like

Yuck, people have terrible taste then :P

Saw 3D is disastrous, and the lowest-reviewed Saw movie (for good reason).

Oh I agree. I don't think people wanted another sasawbut more if a return to form like what 6 was to 5

Well, I think Saw 3d was the worst by far but I would still have enjoyed a more direct continuation from that with Gordon as the new Jigsaw. While the twist didn't make all that much sense, Gordon could've made an interesting and even creepy Jigsaw.

Him becoming an apprentice was so nonsensical that it completely ruined the character for me, I wouldn't be able to take him seriously as the new main villain.

Well, it kinda ruined his character, BUT I still think they could have done something else that would've been interesting with him as well.
Gordon was the only good thing about the survivor meeting in my opinion and the way he acted there I could picture him as a new Jigsaw in my head.

While I really think him helping John didn't fit his character, I still liked the sinister vibe he gave in 7.

Almost to 80 million. On a 10 million budget that seems like good grounds for a sequel.

the next instalment needs to cost only $5 million and to cut cost they need to tone down on those non-realistic traps and focus on the characters, the emotions, and the linkages to past movies. then they will be very profitable with it.

Agreed 100% my friend. I'd rather them invest in good acting and practical effects.

Strahm's arm in Saw V's glass box trap was amazing, and a good example of an effective practical effect. And Peter Outerbridge's performance in VI is just so effing good.
