Detective Mark Hoffman is deemed hero after he saves a young girl and "escapes" one of Jigsaw's games, or so it seems. Special Agent Peter Strahm is suspicious of him after his assistant Agent Lindsay Perez says Hoffman's name. While Agent Strahm looks into Detective Hoffman's past, a group of five people who helped burn a building which was supposedly abandoned, face a series of tests set up by the Jigsaw killer.
Real animal blood was used for the final trap. The director said they wouldn't have used it if they'd known how bad it was going to smell. See more »
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 »
What floor are you going to?
[starts to draw his gun from his jacket]
[pushes Hoffman into the corner of the elevator and injects a syringe into his neck]
I think we're both going to the same place.

Given that the Saw films are notable for their unexpected plot twists, the fact that this was the most predictable one makes it difficult to see why it scored the "You won't believe how it ends" tagline. Otherwise, it's decent. It blows Saw III out of the water, but I don't feel it really compares to the other three. I can appreciate that they're trying to bring it back to what the original was all about; a brilliant plot with a couple of gory scenes (the previous two have been somewhat gore-laden with little story for my liking), the problem being, unfortunately, that the plot is fairly weak. The intensity of the torture scenes is greatly increased, though, by the rest period between them.
As a horror film, this works, but don't expect Saw - and don't expect to be blown away by the ending, because it is nothing special. That said, if you're addicted to the Saw saga as so many of us are, there's no harm in going out to see it.
