Trivia

The opening pendulum trap was a real working model. However, for the times when the actor was underneath it, the metal blade was replaced with a foam one. Likewise, the hand-crushers were foam too except for the close-up shots where they looked too fake. Real heavy duty material was used then with a prosthetic hand inserted. See more »

Goofs

(at around 40 mins) In the elevator scene where Hoffman is attacked by Jigsaw, Hoffman enters the elevator on ground floor and selects 9th floor. You can hear the elevator ringing a bell for each next floor it reaches on the way up, however the elevator does not stop at the 9th floor. See more »

Not as good as previous installments
26 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

While this is still a watchable, well acted movie that continues on the Saw tradition well I have to give it a lower rating because it just was not as good as the previous installments. The plot and the traps that we have come to be surprised by seemed to be a more predictable and rushed along by the makers of the movie. It seemed like this movie could have just been tossed in with part 4 to make one big movie as the prequel to the next part. So to me it seemed like the studio just split up 1 movie into 2 parts to capitalize on the profits....which they have done well I might add because myself and many other movie goers packed the theater for the 5th Saw installment. So in closing I think this movie may be adequate for the die hard saw fans, not nearly good enough for new comers, and winds up lacking far more than it gives. That is why I can only give this movie a 5 out of 10
