(at around 7 mins) When Hoffman raises the lid to the glass box after escaping the Crushing Room, the blood remains on the lid in a fixed pattern, showing it is dry, even though it was only spurted on to it seconds before. See more »
SPOILER: There's an extra scene after the end credits: Amanda comes to the door of the place holding the little girl (the one that Hoffman "saves" at the end of Saw IV) and tells her "not to trust the one who saves her". See more »
I've seen a lot of negativity about the Saw series, with many people saying it should end and that each film is worse than the last. I, however, find this not to be true, and have always been a fan. To me, each film that comes out is an improvement on the last, and this latest installment did not disappoint me.
The deaths are gore- filled, the story full of revelations and twists. The traps are still amazingly sadistic, and somehow the writers are able to constantly give us new insight into situations we thought we already had figured out. Everything fits in beautifully in the Saw universe,and just when you think they can't possibly explain any more, they surprise us yet again. I won't give away any spoilers, but suffice it to say the ending had me on the edge of my seat. I always cringe when the credits roll- I want more! more! more!...especially with this one. I daresay this surpasses Saw V by miles. I'm left breathless, hating the critics, and wondering what will come next, waiting for yet dreading the end of the series. This is a big thing, considering I'm usually of the mindset that sequels should never pass 3- if that. As far as I'm concerned, they can just keep making Saw, as I'll always be there, watching.
