Trivia

This is the first film in the whole franchise to be filmed in anamorphic, especially in the 2.35:1 aspect ratio. The previous titles, including Saw 3D - Vollendung (2010), were all filmed in spherical/non-anamorphic. See more »

Goofs

When the medical examiner mentions that hydrofluoric acid was used to kill the second victim, he mentions that the tissue is connected to the heart, therefore everything, including the heart, is eaten away by the hydrofluoric acid. This is incorrect as hydrofluoric acid only eats oxides, and not organic tissue like flesh. If dropped on the skin, nothing would happen. It would seep into the body and begin dissolving the bones of the victim by a process known as decalcification. See more »

Quotes

John Kramer: [through tape recorder] Hello, Mitch. You decided to sell a boy a motorcycle. But you did not told the entire story, have you? Six-hundred dollars for a bike that you listed in excellent condition, even though you knew the brakes were faulty you took his 600 bucks and in return delivered him to his end. He was my nephew, and he never hurt anyone. The device you see here has a unique power source. It's the same engine that graced the bike you sold my nephew. However I assure the brake lever works...

They've still got it!
4 November 2017 | by See all my reviews

Even though people rarely admit it, the 'Saw' series has been one of the highest quality horror series ever made. 'Jigsaw' is the eighth entry in the series and there is still yet to be a bad film made amongst them. Some are undoubtedly better than others, but I defy you to point me out one that is inherently bad. I also defy you to show me another horror series (even any type of series at all is rare) that has maintained quality across that many films. That's why I was so happy that 'Jigsaw' was a brilliant movie, because if they had come back seven years later only to put forward a bad film for the sake of making money it would have ruined everything. Luckily that was not the case though.

While this one does follow the formula used in all the past films, it also feels quite unique in a number of ways. The original seven films were all set within a very tight time-frame. This one of course is pushing ten years into the future. This adds layers of intrigue to the proceedings, because how could 'Jigsaw' be committing these crimes when he died all those years back? And you just know they're going to have a brilliant answer to that question.

As far as the traps go in this one, I'm not too sure how I feel. None of them were bad, however none of them really blew me away either. My favourite one (without giving away any spoilers) was actually the most simple one in the film involving a gun. The psychology behind that one is what I loved. I love when these films aren't afraid to be intelligent.

The twist in this one also caught me completely off-guard. I've heard people say they weren't entirely convinced by it and felt that the film cheated, however I disagree. Nothing is off limits coming in a 'Saw' movie. You have to know that going in. Altogether I absolutely loved this film and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone who is in anyway interested in the genre.
