Okay. After watching this, I am seriously taking a break from Japanese SAW movies. It’s just under two hours long, but I wanted this to end at approximately 30 minutes in. By the 30 minute mark, I understood enough of what was going on, what was going to happen, why, and the acting was bad enough that I didn’t care much to see what happened. But I continued to watch . . . for you. Yep.

SPOILER ALERT . . . slash summary. . .

A kid watches a video of someone getting murdered as he failed a “game” but no one is really sure whether the site’s content is real or not. Next thing he knows, he’s locked in a room, just as many others are, and playing games that revolve around cooperation like SAW V. However, the acting sucks, people make stupid corny mistakes, the music is cheesy, and the bear as a replacement for the Jigsaw puppet is more comedic than anything. It seemed like a corny parody of SAW, again, without elaborate traps, just guns and people who lack guts and/or are too afraid to take deadly force as an option.

There’s also a second one. I won’t be watching it, though.

Pass !
