We gave it a D+

Puzzle-loving übervillain Jigsaw (Tobin Bell), who took sadism to new levels in the first three installments of the Saw franchise, succumbed to a brain tumor at the trilogy’s end. So how in the world can he play a part in the fourth film? ”Death is just one moment in life,” answers Bell, cryptically. Director Darren Lynn Bousman promises thrills for less philosophically inclined audiences, too: ”Hopefully, I’ve found new and offensive ways to upset people.”
