Don't woory, no spoilers, although I really think this needed to end with the trilogy.  The "twist" was fairly lame and predictable this time, and also pretty similar to a previous twist.  I enjoyed the backstory on Jigsaw.  I appreciated the attempt to connect II and III, although it was sloppy and confusing.  They went with less pyschological thriller and more physical thriller this time around, it was certainly the goriest Saw yet by quite a bit.  It's fine for what it is but I expect more from these movies.  And they guaranteed a Saw V so now they're just getting greedy.

A little side note.  Almost everyone got carded at the theater.  I don't know if it was theater policy.  The line was out the door and it took almost 45 minutes to get in.  Now me being me, I don't put up with idiocy.  So I got up to the ticket counter and ordered my ticket.  The woman there was like 45, not exactly a college kid.  She asked for ID.  I said I'm 31.  She said she needs to see ID anyway.  I asked her if she really thought I looked 16.  She said "I want to keep my job".   So I gave her my ID with my business card and told her that it might be time for her to get a real job that requires the occassional independent thought.  This seemed to go over her head (no surprise).  So when she gave me my change of a quarter I told her to keep it because she obviously needs it more than me.  Am I a prick?  Probably.  Do I care?  No.  I don't put up with nonsense that delays me 45 minutes when I just want to see a fucking movie.  Then I go into the theater, the kid (this was a guy about 20 this time) asked to see ID again when he ripped my ticket off.  I didn't even say anything this time.  At least he has time to improve his lot in life.
