Come on...
12 February 2006 | by (la) – See all my reviews

Spoilers *** This movie isn't bad if you can hold your suspension of disbelief long enough. I mean, there are so many thing that characters do in this film that every audience member is sitting there going "oh come on, please..." The guy cutting his own skin off to get the number

  • just too dumb, there's no way that character would have done that
when he could get the others to tell him the number. The fact the one girl is thrown in the needles and still looks around - why didn't she just get out (especially with what we know after)? And why oh why didn't one of them just start taking boards off the obviously boarded up windows throughout the house. Every single audience member is looking at those boarded up windows and the characters in the movie are trying to pull open a locked metal door. Obviously a regular house like that is going to have tons of ways out even if it's just tearing through the plaster walls like the guy said - he says it, but never actually does it. They may be the dumbest people on the face of the planet.

And the cops son is dropped in the middle of these criminals who were done wrong by the cop and somehow that's supposed to put him in danger? What? They're so worried about getting out, they also going to try and kill an innocent kid who has nothing to do with their predicament simply because he's the son of the man who put them there? It's absurd. And HOW does Jigsaw KNOW these people were set up? What possible way could he have found this out and no one else did?

It's ANOTHER one of those movies where things have to happen a certain way, everything has to fall neatly into place for its outcome and amazingly they do (like Cry Wolf, The Game or Flight Plan for example). This could have been a lot better if it had just been SLIGHTLY more believable.
