    Saw is so thick with exposition it recaps itself in full 2/5ths of the way through. And in part at numerous other points. It's ugly structuring, nearly as ugly as most of the cinematography, but it is in some manner necessary. Because Saw isn't scary or shocking in any real way, it requires a gimmick to remain stimulating. Prevalent nested flashbacks and quick-cut montages of moments we've already seen do the trick by forcing constant mental logging of all the puzzle pieces. Such an elaborate creative concept should summon more than minor intrigue.

    Finalmente assisti Jogos Mortais! Não esperava que fosse gostar tanto quanto gostei. Não sei por que esperei tanto tempo pra assistir (lembro que desde que eu era uma mini-Caroliny eu queria assistir esse filme). Me sinto um pequeno passo mais perto da realização pessoal com os filmes de terror.

    This is the first time I've watch this since going to see it at the cinema. What a film, great idea, ruined by sequels. This is a prime example of why Cinema need to learn to go out on a high an not exhaust a great frantice.

    "Saw remains a classic, albeit imperfect, horror film that matters more than any of us could have predicted it would a whole decade later."

    This was awesome. I didn't know what the hell was going on right until the end. The film is very cleverly written, and we only ever know as much as the two men in the room. Leigh Whannell is good, as is Cary Elwes for the most part but his accent was kind of dodgy. It was wavering a lot. I wasn't honestly expecting to like this as much as I did. Apart from a few scenes which I felt maybe went a bit too far over the top, I found this to be an excellent film.

    I just watched a little film called (2004) "Saw". It has been at the top on my Horror Hall Of Shame. Two guys wake up to find themselves chained up. They have to figure out how to get out of the chains or bad things will happen.

    I'm not going to spend too much time describing a movie this huge. If'n you haven't seen this movie (you might be the last person in the world at this point): SPOILER ALERT.…
