Dr. Gordon was the police's initial suspect in the Jigsaw killings. Yet it never occurred to them that these killings took a huge amount of time to plan, setup and execute, so a surgeon who is constantly working doesn't make sense as a suspect. The devices had to be custom built, the killing rooms configured and clues planed and hidden, the victims were under surveillance for weeks. So doing all of this required hundreds of hours. Dr. Gordon is an oncologist and a neurosurgeon, a doctor with dual specialties like this often works 90-100 hours a week easily so most of his whereabouts during the day would have been known by his coworkers. While it's possible that some of the work could have been done at night he certainly wasn't able to survey the victims at night, plus if he was frequently staying up all night to do all of this it would have shown in his surgical skills, his ability to perform surgery would have been severely diminished if he was suffering from sleep deprivation. Dr. Gordon made no sense at all as a suspect, which is something an experienced homicide detective would have realized right away. See more »

Wow. The critics weren't wrong. Not since seven has horror been portrayed so majestically.
From the first minute to last this film twists and turns you till you feel rather poorly. Just like 'Se7en', the all-round Grittiness that director James Wan creates disgusts and enthralls. Just like 'Se7en', there is a H U G E twist that makes your blood curdle.
A lack of star names helps the movie flow as the pace builds to a finale that won't be forgotten by this viewer in a hurry!
I still can't sleep.
It is well scripted, well acted, and, for everyone who guesses the killer after the first few minutes, keeps you guessing right up to the final reel. It is better than Seven for shock value. It is not over the top gory but there is a final scene which makes you sweat.
Very highly recommended!
