      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      Saw ensnares audiences with a deceptively clever plot and a myriad of memorable, nasty set pieces, but its lofty ambitions are undercut by a nihilistic streak that feels more mean than profound.

      Ionela C My favorite horror movie, so much mistery in it. Original amd creative. I will re-watching soon Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/17/24 Full Review Ángel Una película lenta, aburrida y desordenada, algo torpe en algunos momentos, parece mentira que esté dirigida por James Wan. Lo único que tiene el film es la gran sorpresa final, y una vez vista, el resto no merece la pena. Aún así, sigue siendo con diferencia la mejor de toda la saga. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 03/30/24 Full Review Sam H This is one of my favorite movies ever its really good Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/27/24 Full Review Ryan B The simplicity of Saw is its strength, as you watch you'll wince at the thought of experiencing such an ordeal. While most horror movies get lost in theatrics which ultimately ruin the scare, Saw stays grounded and maintains tension and fear throughout. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/27/24 Full Review jace d Super Awesome I'm a True Fan of this Movie Love It so Much Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/27/24 Full Review Me D Saw is the most genius slasher film of all time.

      Jordan Crucchiola New York Magazine/Vulture The sound of Jigsaw's gravely voice pouring out of the tape recorder is still as ominous a sound as one could imagine, and the big reveals still come as a genuine shock. Oct 27, 2017 Full Review David Germain Associated Press How such a cruelly empty and infantile movie got made is mystery enough. More puzzling is why Cary Elwes, Danny Glover and Monica Potter would sign on as co-stars. Oct 27, 2014 Full Review James Christopher Times (UK) James Wan's horror film Saw is full of demented twists and guilty-looking actors, but the scenario is cruel enough to make you squirm. Oct 27, 2014 Full Review Brian Eggert Deep Focus Review The filmmakers try desperately to concoct a puzzle with a grand design, but there’s none to be found. Just a lot of flashbacks and puzzle pieces that don’t form a full picture. Rated: 2/4 Oct 11, 2023 Full Review Stephanie Archer Film Inquiry From filming style to a twisty narrative structure, Saw is a film that not only bore a franchise but has retained itself as a true horror classic. Sep 30, 2023 Full Review James Croot Stuff.co.nz Most definitely not for the faint-hearted, Saw comes with an additional, vital warning: Whatever you do, do not watch any of the far inferior sequels that it sparked. Rated: 4.5/5 Jan 18, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
