    I was interested to see how I felt watching Saw for the first time in many years. When I watched this ten years ago (fuck) at the cinemas, I was very impressed. The twist kicked me in the balls. The killer's (well, he's not really a killer) motive and his style of execution was original. And the puppety tribute to Argento made me grin. But watching it again, only months later, I found it had already gotten a bit stale.…

    The guy at the box office informed me I was the only one to buy ticket for this all day.Given the weekend box office I'm not surprised. I had seen the film around the time that it came out, but I only remembered the basics of the story's framework. That basic knowledge of the formula that would be repeated again and again in the sequels really robs the film of any visceral thrills. What's left is bad acting and a director who still has much to learn. What was he thinking with all those strobing fast motion action scenes?

    I am probably overrating this slightly. Storywise, it's a mess, finding a cool approach in the interwoven flashbacks and then just piling them on willy-nilly, with more interest in one-off scares than cumulative meaning. Themes and storystrands are intriguingly raised but then the film's attention wanders to the next shock. *But*-- for a while, the shocks are potent-- and meaningful-- enough to grip you tight.

    While I suppose scenes from this may have pushed the envelope on realistic grisliness, and…

    Its hard to believe that its been 10 years since the first "SAW" film was released in theaters ... and I still remember seeing it for the first time in theaters in 2004 when I was in college. Being adapted from an original short story from screenwriters Leigh Whannell and James Wan (who became a first time director with this film), and then being green-lit into a film made on a budget of only$1.2 million (which would then gross $102…

    Saw this film on the big screen and I found it to have aged well. As somebody that last saw this film forever ago I was surprised by all the twist and turns this film had. The acting was kinda bad bit the story pulled me in and the atmosphere this film had was pretty good at being creepy too cause there were a few parts I jumped at. I am glad to seen this film on the big screen…

    First time viewing since the year it was released. I'm not sure what my college self saw in this film (no pun intended) but the film does not hold up.

    Boy oh boy was this worse than I expected! I'm still glad I saw it because there's no doubt that Saw is a huge piece of horror history, but it is one abysmal film. Somehow, James Wan, contemporary frightmaster who wrought unspeakable dread and tension out of thin air with The Conjuring, took a promising premise loaded to the brim with potentially killer setpieces and sucked any and all tension out of it. I mean, he has NO idea what…

    Sadly the series turned into shock value gross-outs with no plots at all, but the first one is a classic for a reason. The editing is messy, sure. And Cary Elwes's acting is really terrible. But the mystery and the "game" are too intriguing to ignore. Too bad the series became what it did.
