When Kimberly has a violent premonition of a highway pileup she blocks the freeway, keeping a few others meant to die, safe...Or are they? The survivors mysteriously start dying and it's up to Kimberly to stop it before she's next.
Detective Mark Hoffman is deemed a 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 an injured Agent Lindsay Perez says Hoffman's name. While Agent Strahm looks into Detective Hoffman's past, five people, who helped burn down a building which was supposedly abandoned, face a series of tests set up by Jigsaw.Written by

My excitement for this film could only be compared to my excitement and expectations for The Dark Knight. The outcomes, however, are extremely different. The Dark Knight was not a letdown...
Saw V was quite well acted, however the plot was nothing but an explanation or a recap that didn't answer any of the questions I know many people have on their minds regarding the series. It lacked that famous Saw twist that we were all hoping for. It seemed like they just took a bunch of filler and turned it into a film while waiting for the next twist to come along. The traps were repetitive and uninteresting, though they made plenty of blood to make up for the lack of cleverness. There is an explanation for this though. New writers and director. If you noticed none of the writers or the director from the first IV were involved in the making of this film so you couldn't expect this film to be at all like the first films. The movie wasn't all bad, however. Like I said, there was PLENTY of blood to spare. The acting was once again impressive and Tobin Bell's performance is unmistakable.
All in all I was disappointed in the plot of the movie but quite entertained by the film as a whole. I really, really hope that this was the only stumble in the Saw series and that Saw VI brings more to the table.
