    I went into Saw expecting a mind-numbing gore fest involving various characters who I wouldn't empathise with at all. However, I was pleasantly surprised at the eerie, crime style atmosphere which ran throughout the film (which was very similar to Se7en). I was also surprised at the lack of on-screen gore, with most horror being left to the imagination. This made the film for me, as nothing can cause more horrific images than the imagination.

    The story centres around two…

    "First dead body I've ever seen. Different in real life. They don't move."

    Saw is a groundbreaking film, with some similarities to Seven. While I find the acting of the main two characters to be average at best, the plot makes up for it. Some of the scenes throughout are interesting, yet disturbing. I appreciate how this is an intelligent movie in the horror genre. The ending is brilliant and jaw-dropping.

    When I was first exposed to the creepmeister known as Jigsaw I knew it was love at first fright!

    A twisted psychological thriller that tickled my sadistic lil gorehound heart! Mindless horror flicks are a dime a dozen but films like SAW that elevate not only our adrenaline levels but elevate the horror genre with intelligent, ambitious offerings are PRICELESS!

    Twists and turns to galore!

    Industrial strength gore and horror!

    And an ending to die for!

    Great premise, flawed execution. Still a landmark in modern horror with some intriguing direction from James Wan.

    First time ever to see this film and unfortunately it has dated quite badly in my opinion. Maybe if I had watched it ten years ago it would have had more of an impact. Gross and all as it is though, I think it's still good for a laugh at the very least. I love Cary Elwes but just couldn't take him seriously at all, the acting in general was mediocre and the script, while some good ideas, felt pretty…

    Irredeemably stupid and with some pretty bad acting. It rates a star and half for some mild cleverness, carelessly strewn about - but nothing can overcome the dull characters and wretched idiocy of the proceedings - except the fantasy that Danny Glover is really playing an alternate-universe Murtaugh here and that Riggs is about to show up at any minute to deliver a crazed beatdown because this is (surprise twist!) actually Lethal Weapon 5.

    How amazing would that be?

    Saw is one of the best horror movies of this century. It started a trend that continues to this day, which is the ultraviolent movies with torture known just as "torture porn".

    All the sequels, although the second one is very good, don't do justice to this masterpiece. Despite all the graphic violence, the secret of this movie is the ingenious script.

    If there is one thing I am glad I missed, is the whole torture porn era.
    Movies who's sole purpose was to usually just show as much blood and gore as they possibly can to "excite viewers" into watching the film.

    While the Saw franchise was leading the charge along with Hostel, the first Saw gets bad reputation as among the torture porn films.

    Saw, while not shy from showing blood and horrific deaths and traps, does not focus on…

    It may be badly written and nonsensical, but it more than makes up for it with its suspense, mystery, sets and the majority of the film taking place in its infamous bathroom.
