SAW the Blog SAW V Official Reviews

Let me make this short and sweet. SAW V is different, but welcomed. The movie, to put it in the wish words of a fellow moviegoer, is "off the chain". Now let me just say the movie will piss off a lot of movie goers, however as you think back and look at it you start to like it more. Here is the deal: SAW V sets up for SAW VI and is for all intents and purposes a sweet movie, but definite buildup. If you walk away dissapointed remember all the traps, and just plain things that happened. Also realize that there is still a lot to be answered in the NEXT film. It was brutal. It was cool.

David Hackl could have asked more from his actors. I figure the production started and ended earlier for the FX. Thing is some of the acting was really poor. Not enough at important parts to throw you off.

I was also surprised at how fast the movie went by. The ending came too soon. The pacing was a little off. Wise tip: Never have an actor just TELL the audience the twist. Do it in SAW fashion. Reveal it with epic flashbacks. I know it could be lame but that Clouser score just makes the twist feel BETTER.

Don't let the twists dissapoint you. The movie should be appreciated for what it is:

Gruesome Exposition.
A Macabre Second Act. (SAW IV being 1, SAW V being 2, SAW IV being 3)


Also, I found this review by MuffinMcFluffin that is downright true.
