Not as bad as most people have made it out to be, but no where near as good as it could have been. First of all, the big selling point of this film (apart from the 3D which I'll get to in a bit) is that "it continues directly from where the original film left off". Well, it kind of does. You see the aftermath and destruction of the house and family, then it skips forward 25 years or so and becomes just another modern horror film, with the usual bunch of "teens"...the damaged girl, the slapper, the stoner/beer drinker, token black dude and then after they all set off, the jock turns up!

It's also kind of ironic that the 3D works best on the scenes from the original film that have been converted! It really made me want to see that film in 3D. The actaul 3D in this new film is really rather poor! Alot of things just look like cut outs in the foreground. It's used for a few effects (blood on the camera, chainsaw flying into the screen) but really doesn't add anything at all. Infact, it kind of takes away from the film because it's so badly done.

Having said that, it's good to see alot of the cast from the original film (and Bill from the second) feature in this one and it's obvious that the cast and film makers really wanted to pay homage to the original. It's just a shame they kind of fail really. Leatherface also doesn't seem right. He's tall enough, but just doesn't seem large enough. He's a bit too lean and so doesn't really have the air of menace that his character should have. Again, it's a shame as watching the making of's, it's obvious that he's having the time of his life in the role. Again, it's a shame he's not as good as he should be.

Worth a watch if you a fan of the series and not as bad has has been made out, but far from a classic like the original film.

This is one of the weirdest, unexpected sequels since Halloween 3. The film opens with a quick flashback and picks up exactly where the last one leaves off. The police, along with some vigilantes torch the Sawyer house with the murdering cannibals inside. A little girl is saved and raised by one of the vigilantes. Now that she is grown, (Alexandra Daddario) Heather discovers she is adopted and the sole heir to the Sawyer plantation in Texas.

She travels there with 3 college mates and picks up a person along the way, because the unwritten code of a Texas Chainsaw movie is the hitchhiker/rider. As it turns out, she is not the only heir left and you come to sympathize with the cannibal with a chainsaw.

The film has its share of severed bodies, blood, and gore. The 3D action is climaxed with a chainsaw tossed at the camera. Remember this is a sequel. Keep the expectations low.

Parental Guide: F-bombs. Implied sex. No nudity. Tania Raymonde bra/panties. Alexandra Daddario open shirt cleavage...and how did she shirt become buttoned shut once it was ripped open?

This takes place right after the very first Texas chainsaw film which is an exciting new twist for the genre. The film is great as long as you don't take it to seriously. It has some really creepy bits in it which really keep you on the edge of your seat and the bit with the cop filming what he is seeing while he is checking the house out is one of the scariest bits I have seen in a film. If you like these silly gore soaked creepy horrors ten this one is definetly worth a watch.

Not the worst movie I've ever seen by a long shot but not very good either and easily forgettable. The script is pretty laughable as is some of the acting and Leatherface himself does not look as menacing or imposing as past movies but if you want to see blood flow and dismembered body parts the film will deliver this.

It does not even come close to being as good as the original or even the 2003 Texas Chainsaw Massacre and 2006 Texas Chainsaw Massacre The Beginning which I liked quite a bit due to the Ronald Lee Ermey character. All in all passable as a slasher movie but does not deserve the Texas Chainsaw branding and to be honest the only thing I will remember from the movie is the small clip of music by John Butler (The Hand Of The Almighty).

If you look at all of my previous reviews, it probably looks like I hate the majority of things I watch however that is because I am silly enough to watch the latest spate of 'horror' movies. All of which are lame, especially the remakes or newer sequels.

This one is again just boring, The original chainsaw was a cult classic with some real gritty moments, the sequels to follow (especially number 2) were tripe.

This one just shouldn't have been made, it has clearly just been made for the money with no thought of turning it into a decent prequel.

I don't even need to explain the storyline as you have guessed by now, it is ultimately just the same as the previous movies.

This film is actually pretty good, and definitely the best of the trio of modern Texas Chainsaw movies. I won't get into the details of the plot, as many people have outlined it in detail already, but suffice it to say, the characters, scenic location and pleasingly different storyline make for an enjoyable experience.

The film impressed me with the extra bits of story and scenery that took a while to build up. The cinematography is excellent, and you really get a feel that the film-makers enjoyed the environment they were shooting in. Alexandra Daddario in the lead role is a complete charmer, she proves to be a cool, calm, and collected young woman who cuts a stunningly beautiful figure in her crop top and low-rise jeans.

The transfer to Blu-ray is impeccable, with only fine banding during transitions. Slight grain has been added, to give it a more filmic look, as it was (commonly) shot digitally. Audio is excellent, with a lossless 7.1 track providing punch during the many jump scares.

Overall i overwhelmingly recommend this film, especially if you thought the movie from 2003 with Jessica Biel was good, this one is much better.
