The Worst Film Ever
Beautiful, moving film.
It's hard to see any effort in the film. There's no comedy to speak of, no real drama and, worst of all.
It is an exhilarating, distressing, funny and profound film, with one of the more memorable film scores in years,
Two strangers, who awaken in a room with no recollection of how they got there, soon discover they're pawns in a deadly game perpetrated by a notorious serial killer. Although it's far from being a masterpiece of it's own James Wan's Saw is a fun film for sure that is packed with mystery and a terrific end in the twist. The acting was pretty good especially from Danny Glover (although i was expecting a happier ending for him). It has it's flaws for sure but it's way better than the poorly made sequels that unfortunately followed later on with years. (8/10)
I don't know where to start. As someone who has seen classics like Alien, Jaws, Jurassic Park, The Dark Knight, etc. I can easily say that this is my all time favorite film. I have never seen a movie so beautifully written in my entire life. The acting is phenomenal and clever. I think they surely gave the audience what they asked for in Saw. The only people who don't like this movie are people who can't respect the torture porn genre. Don't let people predetermine your mind about this film and instead develop your own opinion. Saw is ABSOLUTELY worth the watch and I can say that without hesitation. That's seriously how amazing this movie is.
I like it a lot, got me majorly into horror, some plot holes but overall it is a solid film decent re watch value good start to the film series, there are some minor plot holes in the film but i think that it can be overlooked but that is just me being biased, I like the idea of the traps as in you in most cases have to decide if you live or die so in a way your getting a choice.
This clever horror film set off one of the more gruesome and disturbing horror franchise to date that found a ton of success in its run and has sparked a new film to be released this Halloween. James Wan's gory mystery begins with two men waking up in a room with no idea how they got there. Adam Faulkner-Stanheight (Leigh Whannell) finds a tape in his pocket along with a dead body in the center of the room. He reasonably freaks out as his leg is chained to pipes. The other man in the room Dr. Lawrence Gordon (Cary Elwes) is also chained to pipes and has a tape in his pocket. The dead man in the middle of the room has a tape recorder in one hand and a gun in the other. Adam drags the tape recorder and listens to his tape that tells him he is going to die. Dr. Gordon's tape threatens his wife and children if he does not kill Adam by a certain time.Dr. Gordon knows of this modus operandi as he was the suspect in a similar murder case. Detective David Tapp (Danny Glover) and Detective Steven Sing (Ken Leung) investigate a string of brutal murders where the victims were forced to perform ridiculous tasks that usually resulted in them dying or being so traumatized that survival was difficult. Lawrence Gordon's penlight was discovered at a scene so he was brought in for questioning. The doctor had to admit he was having an affair to establish an alibi. He is kept on as a consultant and hears more about the sickening murders. The two men work to solve the clues they are given finding a pair of saws and more clues.Check out more of this review and others at swilliky.com
