Spiral: From the Book of Saw

Spiral: From the Book of Saw ★★★

Hmm late to the party here, but I think they should stop jerking us around and bring the real Jigsaw back to life already. They've done wackier things before

Script thinks it's a lot smarter than it actually is, which is a problem a lot of later Saw movies have, but pleasantly surprised at how ACAB this movie is. Even though a lot of this felt like they wrote a spec script for a movie about a killer that targets cops and then realized they could only greenlight it by putting a franchise name on it. A couple of neat traps in there though

Hey remember when Damon Lindelof said he stole one of the plot twists in the Watchmen show from Saw 3? That was pretty rad
