Direction: Darren Lynn Bousman.
Performers: Chris Rock, Max Minghella, Marisol Nichols, Samuel L. Jackson.
Scripted by Josh Stolberg (“Piranha 3D”) and Peter Goldfinger (“Brotherhood Of Blood”).
July 4th. A policeman is killed in the subway. The case is investigated by Zeke Banks (Chris Rock) and rookie cop William Schenk (Max Minghella).
Zeke believes that the crime method is the same as that used by Jigsaw. Later, another policeman, linked in a shady affair with Banks, dies after similar torture.
Ninth installment of the series “Saw” with Chris Rock as the center of a whodunit, who has done it ?, in a police thriller with a vengeance key.
Fans of the series will find the expected gore-macabre shows of great puppet in an urgent narration, with regular flashbacks, within a smaller story that, basically, and between mondongos, blood and torture, denounces police corruption.
The film, with characters of little or no interest, creates trivial tensions between partners and an evolution of the plot with no room for surprises.
Samuel L. Jackson
