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
The only "Saw" film that doesn't have a graphic of a buzz saw on the DVD/blu-ray disc. See more »
The tank around Agent Strahm's head did not necessarily need to be airtight. It was secured in an upright position by two metal bars attached to the ceiling, and could therefore have had an air hole in the top panel that would not have prevented death by drowning. See more »
While this is still a watchable, well acted movie that continues on the Saw tradition well I have to give it a lower rating because it just was not as good as the previous installments. The plot and the traps that we have come to be surprised by seemed to be a more predictable and rushed along by the makers of the movie. It seemed like this movie could have just been tossed in with part 4 to make one big movie as the prequel to the next part. So to me it seemed like the studio just split up 1 movie into 2 parts to capitalize on the profits....which they have done well I might add because myself and many other movie goers packed the theater for the 5th Saw installment. So in closing I think this movie may be adequate for the die hard saw fans, not nearly good enough for new comers, and winds up lacking far more than it gives. That is why I can only give this movie a 5 out of 10
