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.

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
The original screenplay called for the characters played by Meagan Good and Julie Benz to go through most of their ordeal wearing just their undergarments. The production team decided against this when they realized how committed and serious the two actresses were about their roles. See more »
In the scene where Jigsaw is talking to tied up Hoffman, when Jigsaw shows him the newspaper, before he says "especially inferior work", in the close-up, you can see Jigsaw's mouth moving when no noise is coming from it. See more »
Saw V was a decent film, but sadly it is nothing compared to the first 4 and is the weakest of the lot.
I felt the acting was very poor at times from most of the cast, but Tobin Bell still managed a very good performance as the sick and twisted "Jigsaw", it's a shame he didn't get much screen time.
The other problem I had with the film was that it didn't really feel like a saw film while watching, it seemed like they wanted to focus on the drama more than the actual traps. But with saying that, the main game with Malick, Brit, Luba, Charles and Ashley is VERY well done and entertaining, it's a shame they didn't show it more.
Overall, this is a pretty good film, with a bit of a let down ending (but still shocking).
PS. The rating would have been higher if they focused on the group game more.
