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 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 Jigsaw.Written by
Lionsgate's 10th biggest grossing film in the USA and Canada. See more »
(at around 29 mins) The first three newspaper articles that Strahm looks up on the computer about Seth Baxter all contain the exact same text, even though they're about three different (albeit related) subjects and were written by two different authors. See more »
Saw V was a decent film, but sadly it is nothing compared to the first 4 and is the weakest of the lot.
I felt the acting was very poor at times from most of the cast, but Tobin Bell still managed a very good performance as the sick and twisted "Jigsaw", it's a shame he didn't get much screen time.
The other problem I had with the film was that it didn't really feel like a saw film while watching, it seemed like they wanted to focus on the drama more than the actual traps. But with saying that, the main game with Malick, Brit, Luba, Charles and Ashley is VERY well done and entertaining, it's a shame they didn't show it more.
Overall, this is a pretty good film, with a bit of a let down ending (but still shocking).
PS. The rating would have been higher if they focused on the group game more.
