Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
A sign of how desperate the series' producers have become is that the big twist here is that Leatherface, the slobby butcher-boy demon in his mask of human skin, is now...the good guy. (That's a ''jump the chainsaw'' concept if ever there was one.)

Austin Chronicle

By Marjorie Baumgarten
Stick around through the credits for an extra closing scene that leaves the door of Heather's new home wide open for a sequel.

Unlike the restrained 1974 film which cleverly relied mainly on suggestion, this version piles on the graphic, often CGI-enhanced gore.

By Roger Moore
There's nothing thrilling about summarily dispatching everybody who isn't meant to survive to the credits, nothing entertaining about meathook, hatchet and chainsaw murdering that we've seen scores of times.

Sadly, this leap onto the stereoscopic bandwagon marks a new low for the franchise, as far away in quality from the '74 original as it is in years.

Texas Chainsaw 3D sees itself as over-the-top and knowing, but what we ultimately get is simply eyes without a face.

Empire

By Kim Newman
A clunky, lumbering sequel that, like its masked protagonist, has no redeeming features.

All the makers of Texas Chainsaw 3D cared about was getting your $16.

Slant Magazine

By Nick Schager
There's no deliberate Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2-style comedy to the film, just dim-witted gruesomeness retrofitted with gimmicky contemporary trappings.
