Brachydios Posted May 22, 2021 Share Posted May 22, 2021 Spiral: From the Book of Saw, my first time in a theater in over a year! Probably the best offering the franchise has had since Saw VI, but it’s not without its own share problems. I can appreciate the new direction with a return to a more grounded story (ala the first Saw) and less extravagant traps, but the twist was predictable and the ending was kinda whack. The predictability didn’t impact my thoughts on the motive and whatnot too much, but the ending as whole could’ve been better executed. Chris Rock did pretty well I thought, and his passion for the project’s production showed through in his performance. Samuel L. Jackson’s character isn’t involved in this as much as the trailers would make one believe, which I thought was kind of a bummer. When he is onscreen, it’s pretty much what’d you expect from Samuel L. Jackson in a Saw movie. Interested to see where the franchise goes from here; continue the Spiral thread, return to the storyline from the original movies (which this movie doesn’t overwrite) or start a new chapter in the Book of Saw entirely like some sorta anthology. I really wouldn’t mind the first or third options. Jigsaw (2017) showed me that there’s really not much mileage left in continuing the original plot line unless they come up with something really, really good to justify it, which I doubt at this point. I feel like, from a creative standpoint, they’ll get the most out of this franchise by experimenting with even more different components for the future.
