Storyline

Jigsaw and his young apprentice, Amanda, are dead. But the grisly games continue. Five supposed strangers find themselves in the midst of a game, and believe they are in a survival of the fittest competition. Via his now infamous video linked puppet, Jigsaw conveys the message that they should ignore their instincts. Meanwhile, agent Peter Strahm wants to prove that Mark Hoffman is an apprentice to Jigsaw, and pursues him as he continues his twisted games. What Strahm does not realize is that Hoffman is testing him, and must pass his test in order to stay alive. Written by Rebekah Swain

Trivia

Understandably Scott Patterson was a little apprehensive about sticking his head in a sealed box that would fill with water. The trap was tested beforehand and didn't go terribly well, which only added to his concern. Ultimately, the actor stepped up and did the scene himself without resorting to a stuntman. The trick to the stunt is that the walls of the box were slid open by stagehands, draining the trap as soon as Patterson signaled with his hands. Several takes were required however to capture the scene as Patterson found himself uncomfortable at various points during the shooting of this scene. See more »

Goofs

When John Kramer and Mark Hoffman are seen setting up the house used in Saw II, they clearly have no gloves on and therefore are leaving fingerprints over everything they are touching. This would clearly reveal at least Hoffman as an accessory to these crimes and he would have been identified very soon afterward. However they could not have been found out for the house was never found in any of the movies See more »

For Shame Hackl
27 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Being a huge Saw fan I can say without a doubt I look forward to each and every offering but this years installment was by far the worst of the bunch. I never claim Saw movies feature terrific acting( besides 1 and 3) but 5 featured some atrocious performances. On one hand you have the wooden Strahm who is literally dictating his thought to... well no one, on the other is Julie Benz, normally a fine actress in Dexter, spouting of ridiculous lines that sound meant for trailers (ex. " It's our next nightmare"). On top of that the movie is just full of sloppy film-making. Let's start with Strahm, he's just unnecessary, he seems only to be there as a vessel to fuel the flashbacks. On to the main trap, The best of the characters is killed in just the second room. Why did they even have to kill him? He was savvy and sharp but I guess the director just wanted to remove all intelligence from this movie. Finally the ending. This might be the worst evidence of a cash-grab I have ever seen. There was no ending, as my friend put it " It's like they ran out of ideas for 6 movies so they cut five in half", and thats really how it felt, INCOMPLETE.
