It's not my kind of movie, and I watched it mostly because I wanted to fill a gap in my viewing experience.
The concept was known and I suspect the plot familiar through cultural osmosis over the years. Held a lot more flashbacks than I had expected, I kind of was assuming that almost the entire movie would take place in the room.
+ minimum amount of jump scares
+ January Jones lookalike wife wasn't only useless and…

Having never seen a movie from this franchise before, but as a fan of James Wan's mechanical but terrifying recent movies Insidious & The Conjuring, I must say Saw is a fascinating piece of conceptual horror, which reminded me more than a little of the late and great Wes Craven.
While the acting can sometimes stray into the overripe territory…
Man, remember when Saw didn't have more terrible sequels than I have terrible siblings? I miss those days.
Μου θύμισε τη φάση στην Πούντα της Πάρου πριν καμιά εικοσαριά χρόνια, όταν κατά το σούρουπο είχα ξυπνήσει σε μια ξαπλώστρα στην πισίνα και έπρεπε να ενώσω τα κομμάτια του παζλ για το τι είχε προηγηθεί και το πως βρέθηκα εκεί.Αφού κατά τύχη βρήκα πεταμένα κάπου τα γυαλιά μου ηλίου,κατάλαβα μιλώντας με τους φίλους μου που έπασχαν κατά μυστήριο λόγο από την ίδια ασθένεια,πως η αιτία για την κατάσταση όλων μας ήταν η τεράστια ποσότητα αλκοόλ που είχαμε καταναλώσει από…
A mysterious and thrilling horror tale following a psychotic killer and his twisted games of survival and self-torture.
The characters and story is really fascinating and gripping to watch from start to the very last shot however it is in the delivery in the lead performance, the way it is edited with it's oddly quick cutting and its overall direction feels particularly over-dramatic and underwhelming at the same time. But that's all made up for it's astonishing twist and turns…
In hindsight, though the endless array of sequels saturated the effect of this first release, 'Saw' is still a seminal and even important piece of cinema. At the time we didn't realise how it would go on to inspire an entire subgenre of film whether you love it or hate it, and I defy anyone to see the twist ending coming...
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Although there are a lot of good things in this movie, it finally doesn't add up to a very satisfying movie in general. I remember when it came out, and how 13-year old me had no interest in seeing it while every other kid at my school couldn't shut up about it. Having finally seen it, I'm glad I fulfilled a blind spot, but I sure wish the movie had been better. James Wan's early promise as a director is…
