所有好事都必须结束，就像“锯“系列展示了十年前，这也是如此的好事。“SAW：2010年发布的最后一章，应该是肢解到兆上特许经营的最后一批 - 该制片人陷入七年的决议。(In sequel terms, that’s a lifetime.) Inevitably, they had a relapse, but “Jigsaw” (2017), starring Tobin Bell as the Rube Goldberg torture-device serial killer who was supposedly long dead, was less a reboot than a delayed denouement, one that was greeted with very little fan enthusiasm. After eight movies, half a billion dollars at the box office, and too many gruesomely head-spinning, limb-severing mechanical-violence “games” to count, the series, like most of its victims, seemed ready to be put out of its misery.
The movie features a new faceless torture maniac — though he’s really just a Jigsaw copycat, with new insignia (a nod to the twirly red flourish that decorated the Jigsaw puppet’s cheeks), a new voice (he sounds like the world’s most disaffected tech geek), and a new video mascot (a grotesque pig mask hung from wires). The big change, though, is that while “Spiral” features a handful of the series’ how-much-pain-will-you-inflict-on-yourself-to-save-yourself? dungeon-nightmare set pieces (in the first of these, a man with a clamp through his tongue must decide whether to rip the tongue out of his mouth in order to avoid a speeding subway train), the movie is framed as a conventional police-corruption thriller.
它明星克里斯摇滚乐, and with his seething, embattled performance as Zeke Banks, a homicide detective who’s odd man out in the department because he’s the only cop in sight who hasn’t lost his integrity, Rock completes his transformation from comedian to actor who lacks even a whisper of his former cheeky ebullience; he’s all brutish insults and glaring resentment. At the site of that first hellacious murder, Zeke learns that the victim was a dirty cop — one who routinely lied on the witness stand. (That’s why he was given a lesson in how to use his tongue.) Zeke gets put in charge of a task force to hunt down the killer, and along with his eager-to-please rookie partner (Max Minghella), he is sent on a kind of gross-out scavenger hunt, which keeps turning up Tiffany-blue boxes that contain hideous clues in the form of severed body parts belonging to cops.
这是所有连接的，不知何故，到Zeke的父亲（Samuel L. Jackson.），曾经跑过该部门，仍然粘合它？“螺旋”造成意外的扭曲或两个，但考虑到它的引导演员是黑色的，这是一个惊悚片盯着警察不道德的问题，这部电影面对这一主题在一个奇怪的不可侵略的，几乎奇怪的通用方式。死亡如何？浴缸里的一个男人通过翻转掉手指的机器来避免触电;除非她倾向于切断她的脊髓，否则一个女人会淹死在热蜡中。是的，这些都是生命课程！不，“锯”系列并没有真正改变。所以取决于你是粉丝还是没有，吃掉......或呕吐。
