America's third political party, the New Founding Fathers of America, comes to power and conducts an experiment: no laws for 12 hours on Staten Island. No one has to stay on the island, but $5,000 is given to anyone who does.
Bodies are turning up around the city, each having met a uniquely gruesome demise. As the investigation proceeds, evidence points to one suspect: John Kramer, the man known as Jigsaw, who has been dead for over 10 years.
Callum Keith Rennie
In an America wracked by crime and overcrowded prisons, the government has sanctioned an annual 12-hour period in which any and all criminal activity-including murder-becomes legal. The police can't be called. Hospitals suspend help. It's one night when the citizenry regulates itself without thought of punishment. On this night plagued by violence and an epidemic of crime, one family wrestles with the decision of who they will become when a stranger comes knocking. When an intruder breaks into James Sandin's (Ethan Hawke) gated community during the yearly lockdown, he begins a sequence of events that threatens to tear a family apart. Now, it is up to James, his wife, Mary (Lena Headey), and their kids to make it through the night without turning into the monsters from whom they hide.Written by

After I bought my ticket online, after being invited by my cousin to go with him, I read the reviews. Disappointed I just spend 17 bucks and everyone gave this movie terrible ratings.
Well, I went in expecting it to be the worst movie ever made (as many said) and what would have been a 5 star rating, which would of been a decent movie, turned out to be a 7, a good/great movie.
Really, I enjoyed it. It wasn't long and the concept and story IMO were great! Not to mention the theater experience with everyone screaming,clapping and laughing helped immensely. If you're on edge and wondering if you should see this movie, I say, if you're bored and go in with no expectations, you will enjoy it a lot.
