Waking up in a bathroom, two men, Adam and Dr. Lawrence Gordon, discover they have been captured by the infamous Jigsaw Killer. The men must escape before time runs out, otherwise, they will face the deadly consequences.Written by
In the beginning, when Adam says "This is what they do, man. They drug you, kidnap you, and next thing you know, you wake up in a bathtub and your kidneys are on eBay.", this is incorrect. Selling human organs has always been against eBay's Terms of Service. Adam is clearly being facetious in saying this, and this does not indicate that he or indeed the filmmakers believe that human organs could ever be sold on eBay. See more »

German Collector's Edition by Kinowelt contains R-rated version (with commentary, making-of & English DTS-ES sound) and uncut version (labeled "Director's cut", with unrated music-video and a soundtrack CD). The Saw I + II steelbook edition includes what is labeled the "US director's cut" of Saw I. This version replaces the logos (new Lionsgate logo, Twisted Pictures logo instead of Evolution Management logo) at the beginning and removes some moments between Adam and Dr. Gordon at the end (ca. 33 seconds).

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!
