Incredibly Annoyed At This Film.. Lies and more Lies.

Sequel or Prequel?

Incredibly Annoyed At This Film.. Lies and more Lies.

Postby freespirit777 » February 21st, 2018, 7:52 am

Watching the special features and i'm just so mad at how much potential Jigsaw had that wasn't lived up to..

It really annoys me that the producers over and over said they were trying to "recreate the feeling of Saw 1", when they deliberately didn't do that..

If they wanted to recreate the feeling of the first Saw, they would have a film centered on two characters, focus heavy on character development and simplicity..

Instead this film felt exactly like a sequel with just a completely new cast; it felt like just another sequel.

I already stated this, but just a few tweaks to the script and they could've truly had a film that was like Saw 1; by making the shotgun trap what the bathroom trap was in Saw 1..

it was a perfect scenario; interesting two characters who have lots of depth and intrigue, interesting personalities etc.. that could've EASILY been the "bathroom trap" for this movie.

They were so close, and completely dropped the ball on this one..

it's all lies when the producers say they wanted to "recreate Saw One", because they more so mirrored the sequels by far.

I hate lies and flattery, and that's all the producers did and that does no good in the long run.

I honestly could've come up with a better script than this film; supposedly going through "hundreds of scripts" and wanting to "recreate Saw 1" was a total lie.

I guess we got it by now. Long story short, you feel personally insulted because you didn't like a goddamn movie. Noone has to like it, not at all, but this "THEY WERE ALL LYING!!!"-rampage is downright ridiculous and it already was months ago.

Listen man, everyone has their right to be underwhelmed with what we got last year, I agree with a few of the points youve said here about the movie itself but calling the producers 'liars' is pointless. What are they gonna do, straight up say the twist is a rehash of Saw 1 and 2 and the new villain is a copy of Hoffmans arc in 5?

Haven't you posted that post about 3 times already? Anyway, the movie was nothing like Saw 1, but maybe they meant a simpler plot and less violent traps with that.
The only thing I really wished for was a darker, more horror like atmosphere. That was completely missed

My thoughts exactly when they bring up that, were never going to get a bathroom-esque scenario again in the Saw branding. There are plenty out there like Fermats Room, Killing Room and Exam, so if you lust for something like that then watch those and let Saw be Saw.

'Would you rather' is another movie I'd suggest that mostly takes place in one room.
