I wasn't expecting much going into the film, but the prologue was quite striking with it's 3D transfer of highlights from the 1974 original (sometimes I thought I was looking at original footage, sometimes modern reenactments--I wasn't really sure).There's an hour of pretty gory, lifeless storytelling about four people travelling to Newt, Texas to reclaim the legacy of the heroine, but the last hour is the stuff of cult movie legend. Some opportunities for spectacular 3D effects are missed, but overall, the 3D is pretty good and worth the extra cash. Overall, it's an inconsistent film of highs and lows: at it's worst, it's mind-numbingly dull; at it's best it's very everything you want from a horror film.

3D sequel to Texas Chainsaw (the 1974 original) is a little slow to get going but surprisingly fun once it does. The movie comes up with a fairly novel way to continue the story, has some decent gore and, most surprisingly, comes up with some good villains who aren't Leatherface. (Leatherface in this go round is as homicidal as ever but he's portrayed as a perpetually angry, mentally retarded 8 year old in a 6 foot 5 body, so he's slightly more sympathetic than in previous incarnations). This definitely isn't a classic but it's a respectable sequel to the Tobe Hooper original and easily the best movie in the franchise since part 2.

I loved this movie and I loved how they kept it to the original story. This was the first time I used Fandango on my smart phone. I will be using this app every time I go to the movies from now on.

Don't waste your $ or your time. Movie made no sense, and the plot made no sense. The ending stunk too. Total garbage. I would not even rent or buy the DVD.

If you have been following the Texas CS movies I would differently go see the movie, no spoilers but it has a new spin to the villain, if your new to the franchise watch the original movie before you go see this movie..
