"Jigsaw" does a lot of things that a reboot of a mediocre horror franchise should do right. The Saw franchise is not known for being scary, but for the gore and plot twists. Jigsaw serves both categories well. The coloring of this movie is different than the other installments. The pale (and often sickening green) lighting is gone and is replaced by a more natural orange lighting. It has the feeling that an actual budget was used for it. The acting is nothing special, and the characters are fairly bland. Tobin Bell reprises his role as John Kramer, aka Jigsaw, and does not fail to portray the coldness of his character. The addition of some sparse humor is refreshing for a franchise that had nothing to laugh about in the other seven installments. This is not the worst Saw film, but it does not quite as enjoyable as the original. It serves it's purpose of supplying plenty of fanfare and making the fans of the Saw series feel satisfied. Overall, I give this film a 5.5/10.
