    On one hand, the death traps are fun to watch.

    On the other, SAW is in desperate need of a Hitchcock, or at least a director and writer that care about making a film that contains more than some fun death traps and a twist. Looks cheap, both design and acting-wise.

    If this didn't have a bunch of sequels, it would be a totally forgettable stand alone film.

    And Leigh Whannell is a horrible actor.

    Nice idea for a horror movie / thriller. Suspenseful and entertaining.

    Like any self-respecting horror fan who has been around for a while, I watched this movie when it came out in 2004. I've seen it one more time in the last decade, but it's been at least 5 years. I decided to re-watch it, and not think of it as the beginning of a franchise that launched so many careers, but just as a stand-alone movie. Even though I knew what would happen, it was still suspenseful as hell and so innovative. So many movies have copied it, but this is the original. It's the real deal.

    I was really surprised by this film. I expected torture porn, but what I got was a tense thriller with serviceable acting and a decent plot.

    I had told myself that I wouldn't watch Saw or any of its sequels, because I really don't like "torture porn". And I held out for quite a long time, but when it turned up on Fox Channel here in Sweden, my curiosity got the better of me, so I recorded it and later, hesitantly, watched it.

    I wasn't quite as bad as I had imagined. I actually thought it was an interesting concept, and I guess the fact that…

    I don't wanna be that person but I'll go ahead and say it - Saw was kind of a game changer wasn't it

    The 10th anniversary theatrical re-release was literally the best Halloween night of my life but it's still just as good at home

    The best thing I can say about Saw is that it's got a neat setup. I'm always a sucker for a good one-setting, single digit character count chamber mystery of sorts, and this particular one started off strong. From the very beginning, it reveals a deceptively simple puzzle. Two men are chained to either side of a room. In the middle of the room lies a dead man with a gun and a tape recorder. Boom! You've got your premise,…

    F. The protagonists wife had a clear shot at the antagonist and did not take it. Take the shot. If you don't want to kill the man, put a bullet in each arm and one in each leg. The most disturbing part is that the cops didn't see aware of this either - if you have this individual that you have clearly identified as a crazy asshole who is killing people, you shoot the fucker in the arms and legs if you cannot kill him. Stupid fucking movie. Would appreciate intelligent horror please.
