YMMV / Jigsaw

YMMV for the film

  • Awesome Music: "Running Scared" by Roy Orbison from the trailer.
  • Critical Dissonance: Only 34% of critics liked it on Rotten Tomatoes, but a whopping 92% of audiences liked it.
  • Memetic Mutation: With Halloran's death scene, his head splitting into eight pieces has drawn comparisons to a plum, Patrick Star or the Demogorgon.
  • Narm: The Reveal that Logan is the new Jigsaw is initially somewhat shocking, but it's immediately followed by an extremely lengthy Infodump that completely disrupts the scene.
    • Logan's plan. Framing Halloran by recreating the game in the barn, down to picking out Halloran's informants that looked similar to the actual victims... when no one had even discovered the previous game to begin with. YMS summed it up perfectly:
    "Exactly who in the film was this for!?"
  • Surprisingly Improved Sequel: The fan reception is markedly better and less divided than most of the other entries.
