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.

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.

I was late because my girlfriend took forever getting ready but from the part I did see it's a good movie

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.

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

I love the turn they are taking with the Saw movies! They are going away from the movies mainly being about gore and traps and more into storytelling and plots which are much more intriguing and better for those with squeamish stomachs. The middle to the end of the movie had me gripped at my seat, and the beginning had me pleasantly curious and excited to see what unfolds. I loved it, I give it 10/10. PS, chris rock is an amazing actor wow.

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 should have decided to either be a part of the SAW universe or not. instead it rode the line and fell flat. it would have been a good movie without the SAW tie in.

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.
