Could’ve been better. It’s obvious who has been behind it the whole time. Focused too much on the Det. Banks’ mental state. The games went against everything Jigsaw stood for, the victims never stood a chance. The traps were new though.

It was pretty good, you don't really need to see the other SAW movies to like or dislike this movie. Chris Rock wasn't bad and Samuel L Jackson was well, Samuel L Jackson. If you like this type of movie, then you will probably enjoy this.

EASILY TOP 3 BEST SAW FILMS

At no point was I entirely engrossed in the film or on the edge of my seat wondering what the next clue will be. This seems like a cash grab, something they threw together with Chris Rock as the big name because they knew it would draw in viewers. Decent movie, but something I could have watched at home.

an enjoyable movie that falls a little short more of a spinoff then a sequel to the main franchise

I would rate this film from 1-10 and I give this movie a solid 5 out of 10. This film felt rushed and had no train of thought, most of the film was predictable and somewhat boring. This film isn’t as good as it’s predecessor film SAW. This film feels as just another prequel that was thrown to just make some profit. I’d recommend wait until it’s released on disc or rent it if u are a fan of the SAW films.

Loved the new twist on a old franchise by telling the story from the point of a police officer though it did feel like it was trying at times to be political or make a political statement by saying a lot of police officers are dirty or guilty of bad things when the truth is like any group their are both good and bad apples

The movie was great! I only gave 4/5 stars because the voice of “Jigsaw” was not threatening at all. It sounded like it was Kermit the Frog. That was my only complaint.

The audio in our theatre sucked. Also, the tickets we ordered through the app were not the seats we got. I reserved front row, got back row, corner.

Great but predictable. Chris Rock did his best but some of the scenes just weren't believable. I'm a fan of Fargo's last season too.

Spiral, however, doesn't chart its own course as much as simply try to have it both ways. And if the title implies a certain motion, the main direction the movie heads is essentially down the drain.

Spiral delivers when it comes to gore, if that’s your thing, and appropriately dour aesthetics — but not much else. That’s a shame, because the story’s themes, from the unreformable nature of the police department to the cost of integrity in a space that values power above all else, could not be more relevant.

A sequel that hopes to court Saw fans and mainstream audiences alike, Spiral: From the Book of Saw is likely to alienate them both. It’s a hollow imitation of the series, unable to meet its most basic visual and narrative expectations. It’s also a bad film in general, which tries to tell a socially relevant story that it can’t seem to handle.
