Atom User Reviews for Spiral: SAW
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.
acting is so bad.
an enjoyable movie that falls a little short more of a spinoff then a sequel to the main franchise
EASILY TOP 3 BEST SAW FILMS
Great cast. I truly loved seeing Chris Rock in this type of movie! Love the twists!
This was a great movie! Chris did an amazing job!!! #SPIRAL!
Great Movie, everything lines up pretty nicely and the ending makes me hope for a sequel.
An abrupt ending that gave me whiplash more than the original Hills Have Eyes
Good movie.. not a boring or dull moment
a suspense through the entire film other than the puppet voice sounded low
Great start to a hopefully new series of movies!
I was very pleased with this film. Chris Rock was amazing as was the movie itself.
amazing movie, one of the most suspenseful saw movies.
AWESOME MOVIE ! Bring your snacks !
Loved it Chris Rock made this movie!!! I want to watch it again
disappointed, some acting was not good
Could of been better, the acting was off
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.
The cast were awesome
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
It was amazing !!! Some funny parts but amazing movie I personally loved it great spin off of saw ! It’s definitely a must see! I know I’ll definitely watch it again
Could of been better but still a good time for a fan
Not the best saw but not the worst. Mostly: TO MUCH POLITICS. I go to movies to escape the world not have someone’s views shoved in my face
Hope there’s a sequel!
Chris rocks comedy was better than the movie its self
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.
Cast was amazing as well for the sound track. Would recommend for entertainment.
Insane! Crazy, interesting plot with surprise ending
I enjoyed it
Good for Saw fans -which I am- but the killer was predictable. But I liked the movie 👍
very well done
Decent but predictable twist, must watch if you like suspense and gore.
It was better than I thought. Give Chris Rock a chance
Ok for me very gory that was kinda a good thing lol should’ve been longer great plot twist
This Movie had Potential but it’s obvious who the killer is!
Pretty good addition to the saw universe
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.
Cliché plot, but a fun movie
Great movie, must see for any Saw fan
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.
Amazing! Fresh new take on the Saw franchise
very good very graphic and the sound effects were on point . very interesting plot twist cant wait for the sequel .
The movie was okay its extremely hit or miss I didnt expect chris rock to act as good as he did unfortunately I would put this in the top 3 saw movies but that doesnt say much
Predictable. But funny!(sometimes) Too gorey for me.
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.
Fan-frickin-tastic movie! finally a good movie is released after a long dry spell.
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.
