    This is the best sequel of the bunch, and it may end up sitting at the top of the franchise. Beyond the shocking moments, this gives us the best John Kramer we have seen yet. Tobin Bell is brilliant.

    Despite being a little too long it does keep the momentum going for the most part, making this the most satisfying Saw movie since Saw VI.
