    Incorrectly labelled by many as the film that commenced the 'torture porn' phenomenon, Saw is director James Wan's debut feature which beautifully exhibits his instant grip & comfort with the elements of the genre this picture belongs to. And even though its strong cult following spawned a series that bathed in gruesome torture, this 1st chapter of the Saw franchise is undoubtedly the most compact, story-driven movie that works as an exciting, effective & shocking horror mystery full of twists & turns.

    Auch beim dritten Mal ist "Saw" ein gelungener (Horror-)Thriller. Wer Splatter erwartet sollte sich die späteren Teile ansehen, denn wirklich brutal wird es nie, dafür aber sehr spannend und der Twist am Ende kommt sehr unerwartet.

    Despite it's obvious flaws, this movie really showed the talent of James Wan when it comes to horror. Made on a very small budget and only being able to make two takes of every scene because of time restraints, Wan really manages to make this a pretty effective flick.

    Initially this looked like it was going to be a smarter slicker thriller than I expected. I'd gotten the impression it was another torture porn movie so had been avoiding it. There is more to it than that. But by the time it ended it wasn't that smart at all. In fact it was pretty stupid. It kinda has two movies playing side by side, with intertwining plots. One part is the side I was aware of, the chained up…

    Mais do que mero torture porn, este longa é um engenhoso exercício de horror, criado e executado por duas mentes (Wan e o corroteirista Leigh Whannell) munidas de ideias um bocado doentias e um domínio instintivo do gênero, o que se confirmou com títulos posteriores ainda melhores, como Sobrenatural e Invocação do Mal.

    As situações em que eles colocam o protagonista – sequestro, aprisionamento e tortura – propiciam uma tensão associada a medos terrenos, em contraste com ameaças sobrenaturais. A…

    O primeiro é mesmo um grande filme com uma grande realização,um grande thriller e não um filme de terror,depois o resto da saga não segue a coerência deste primeiro filme,onde o que interessa mais é impressionar com as cenas das mortes do que realmente com o enredo...

    I used to avoid horror movies....but since I started watching most of my movies while running on a treadmill.....I have started to watch more horror movies. It seems that I run my 5k much faster when there is a maniac on the screen.

    Well after 10 years.....I finally got around to watching Saw. Being a movie buff, I knew certain things were going to happen in the movie.....but that did not stop me from enjoying this movie. Saw is about…

    Almost as great to become a classic. Saw successfully strikes the balance between goriness and thriller.

    I remember seeing this movie when it first came out, and I LOVED it. Never saw the ending coming. It works very very well as a stand alone film....and now years later after rewatching the rest of the series again, I've come to the conclusion that for a 7 film series, over almost 7yrs they did a damn good job with the entire series. But I still love this one as a stand alone flick.

    Saw is one of my favorite horror films of all time. I love and admire so much its originality and freshness (at least the series had these when it started). With such a perfectly constructed story strengthened by a great editing, Saw also has solid performances and it meant the introduction to the one which is my opinion the greatest villain in contemporary horror films: Jigsaw.

    It has a great score that served perfectly to create suspense, it contains…
