Saw VI was arguably the best in the series since the first one, with the whole movie essentially being a huge slap in the face to the American healthcare system. Hoffman's path continues to grow narrower as the FBI start to close in, while an insurance agent becomes the target for an entirely new game.
This is one of the rare cases where we really do not sympathize for the character playing the game. William Easton is a scumbag who turns away people in need of healthcare based on a formula that determines whether they deserve coverage. Jigsaw definitely had the right idea when choosing this guy and his game is definitely an entertaining and intriguing one, especially the twist at the end and the gruesome finale. Saw VI ends with yet another brutal shock ending, one which sets up a bloody finale that will prove to be unforgettable.
