Saw VI (2009, USA/CDN/GBR/AUS) C-91m. ** D: Kevin Greutert. Starring Tobin Bell, Costas Mandylor, Mark Rolston, Betsy Russell, Shawnee Smith, Peter Outerbridge, Athena Karkanis, Samantha Lemole, Tanedra Howard. Weakest of the SAW films, this one follows agent Hoffman, who intends to complete the late Jigsaw's last plan involving an insurance broker. Jigsaw's wife is an accomplice, although the other policemen are hot on Hoffman's trail. Best part is by-now trademark twist finale, but rest of the film is rather weakly plotted, if by no means bad. For SAW fans.
