From Bloody Disgusting comes the final official synopsis for Saw V, the fourth sequel in the twisted horror franchise. It says,
In the fifth installment of the popular Saw franchise, Hoffman is seemingly the last person alive to carry on the Jigsaw legacy. But when his secret is threatened, Hoffman must go on the hunt to eliminate all loose ends.
Since I wasn’t all that invested in Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) to begin with, an entire movie about him killing people isn’t nearly as interesting as Jigsaw putting people in deadly traps so that in the event they escape, they appreciate their life more.
For the first time, I’m not really all that interested in a Saw sequel. I mean, seriously…”carry on the Jigsaw legacy”? He’s not carrying on Jigsaw’s legacy. He’s murdering people to keep them quiet. Jigsaw had a reason, however twisted, for the things he did. And that was what made him, and the original few films, so compelling.
