I would like to say here I am a big fan of the original...YES I AM REVIEWING A SEQUEL AGAIN!!!!
This though surprised me a bit..
The first I loved. The second I was amused at. The third sucked. This one.. well it ain't that bad..
The things that save it are the acting, especially from Matthew Maconoughughyghyghydoghghhay..(whatever), who can act evil like the best of them (much humour comes from his robotic leg). Ms Zewelleger ain't too bad either as a scream queen.
The atmosphere is suitably uncomfortable and the direction is well paced.
The plot is incoherent. OK, we got people stranded in woods. Help arrives. Help want to kill them. People get slowly killed off, one survives, help is actually paid by someone to scare people????? WTF is that all about? It seems as if they really had trouble getting the plot across. Also they made Leatherface into a psycho transvestite, instead of a confused retarded man who knows no better.But all in all it ain't that bad a film as long as you forget to try to comprehend what the plot turns into and you like this type of film..
