Saw VI (2009)



Critic Consensus: It won't earn the franchise many new fans, but Saw VI is a surprising step up for what has become an intricately grisly annual tradition.

Critic Reviews for Saw VI

A very entertaining thing happens in the sixth movie: Saw tunes into society at large and focuses its punishment on predatory lenders and amoral insurance companies.

I'd be lying if I didn't admit to jumping in my seat a few times. Unfortunately the plot was just a bit messy.

Don't have a desire to see victims ripped limb-from-limb, cut in half and watch their insides spill out onto the floor? Avoid Saw VI at all costs.

August 12, 2010 | Rating: 2.5/5 | Full Review…

Saw VI is, pardon the pun, a cut above the rest but not, sadly, by much.

October 30, 2009 | Rating: 1.5/5 | Full Review…

If you haven't followed the series up until now, there's not much point in trying to catch up.

October 29, 2009

This script, by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, has a more lyrical bent, and a more satiric bite, than any of the other Saw sequels.

Audience Reviews for Saw VI


Slightly superior to the previous chapter of this tiresome long-running series, this sixth Saw film is, of course, immensely gruesome and brutal but surprisingly intriguing sometimes - and it is also inadvertently hilarious; try not to laugh during the final scene.

Saw VI is by far the second best film in the series and a very good horror film. The story isn't necessarily any different yhan the other Saw movie, but it has the best tension since the original film, it is by far one of the goriest in the series, and is fun for people who have kept up with the series. The cast is just ok just like all the films, some people gave the film a great tension, and some gave it a real boring feel. The gore is just as good as past Saw films, if not better, im serious I mean the merry go round torture device was by far the coolest thing the series has had other than the original bathroom in the first film. Saw VI is a not just another Saw film, its the best since the first, and even though the first is still by far the best, this one was almost just as great.

Okay...It's still good. But it's starting to feel like we aren't getting nowhere with the series. Once again I repeat...Killing Jigsaw so early was a big mistake. Hoffman is a great guy....But it's just not the same. Maybe it's good that the next one is the last one. We gotta move forward. Still good though. Brutal opening scene
