I will not tell all the surprises in this film.
It is very important that you have seen SAW 2, SAW 3 and SAW 4 to understand what is going on here. If you missed SAW 4, you might pick up on what is going on in SAW 5, but then again, you don't know about the "death" of Jigsaw John and how and why the "games" and traps continue.
Returning for another go around is Tobin Bell as "Jigsaw John" who you will see in new footage of "flashbacks".
Also returning is Costas Mandylor as "Hoffman" who we met in SAW 3 as "Forensic Hoffman" and SAW 4 as "Detective Hoffman".
Scott Patterson returns as "Agent Strahm" from SAW 4 and Besty Russell returns as "Jill" whom we met in SAW 3 and SAW 4.
Mike Realba returns as "Detective Fisk".
Also in new footage of "flashbacks" is Mike Butters of the first SAW (2004) and Tim Burd as "Obi" and Tony Nappo as "Gus" from SAW 2 (2005).
Bill Vilbert returns as a cop.
Niamh Wilson returns as the little girl "Corbett".

In archive footage: Danny Glover, Shawnee Smith, Donnie Wahlberg, Lyriq Bent, Angus Macfadyen, Bahar Soomekh, Athena Karkanis, Justin Lovis.

When we last left SAW 4 (2007), we discovered that Detective Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) was the new killer taking the place of Jigsaw John (Tobin Bell) and he had survived the trap that killed Officer Eric Matthews (Donnie Wahlberg).
The story continues as we see a man, Seth, (Joris Jarsky) strapped to a table with a pendulum swinging back and forth getting closer and closer to his naked, chiseled stomach. He must reach into these hand vises to try to stop the pendulum, but his hands become cut and crushed. He is running out of time. The pain too great. He fails the game and the pendulum cuts him deeply to his death.

For starters, if you are a follower of the "Saw" series, you know what to expect in terms of plot for "Saw V". There are some interesting new torture devices and some new faces in "Saw V", but it didn't matter much seeing how the majority of them were victims anyway. The film reveals more information with flashbacks of the previous four that ties everything together.

Agent Strahm (Scott Patterson) and Detective Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) return for the fifth installment, which takes place exactly where the fourth left off. What you can expect is trademark "Saw"...the gore, the plot twists, the extreme camera angles, much of the same from any other film in the series. Lets face facts, "Saw V" doesn't break new ground, but if you're a diehard "Saw" fan you should check out the latest installment to see the next chapter in the series. As I mentioned before, more is revealed, so it's best to understand the other four.

"And you won't believe how it ends." to interpretation . How many times can you play the same game before getting bored? All in all, a 3.5 of 5, coming from a "Saw" fan.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Tim Brough VINE VOICE on October 27, 2008
"I want to play a game." Well, we all knew that. But with Jigsaw dead, how does the Saw series keep the game from becoming overtly predictable? The answer is not revealed in "Saw V," which shows the series becoming an utterly predictable Halloween event.

Jigsaw (Tobin Bell, weirdly malevolent as ever) is still dead. That minor fact, however, does not negate his being in "Saw V" in various states of criminal commission, with or without Detective Mark Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) as his accomplice. Still hot on the case FBI Agent Pete Strahm (Scott Patterson) is on Hoffman's trail, and there are five hapless but interconnected folks now secured in one of Jigsaw's traps.

The traps are, as usual, freaky. The FBI cops are trying to figure out who dunnit. Mrs. Jigsaw discovers she has inherited a mysterious box from her dearly departed, but we aren't allowed to see the contents after she peeks in (hmmm, preview of the plot for "Saw VI"?). What is missing is any sense of newness to the film, or a real hard twist at the end. For a film with a tagline of "You won't believe how it ends," that's only partway true. I was really expecting more.

While I still think Saw II is the best of the series, "Saw V" comes off as little else than a cop caper with some of that old time gore tossed in for squeamish factor. Saw IV was definitely more squirm inducing, which makes you wonder why they didn't spend a little more time trimming the fat and adding a bit more slashing. As a cop chase flick with a side plot of torture, "Saw V" comes off as just an average flick. Of course, I'll be back next Halloween.

Format: DVD
I'm a big fan of the series, especially 2 and 3. I think Saw 2 is one of the best horror films ever made. Beautifully done, excellent script, and 2 main surprises at the end. I first became disappointed with the series at seeing Saw 4, not necessarily because Jigsaw is dead, though he IS the dominating force and needs to come back. (If I had written #4, I would've started it at the end of 3, making the father save Jigsaw with a transfusion so he could find out where his daughter is; plus, his wife was a nurse, so he would conceivably know CPR, etc.) Anyway, I found little clever about the end of #4, and far less at the end of #5. 4 was written as a horror movie, not a hybrid mystery/horror movie, which is what brought me into the series in the first place. And #5 is more like a TV police drama than anything else. As one who doesn't watch any TV, I guess I'm more sensitive to how Saw 5 plays than an audience full of people who don't go to the movies as often as I do. It's too bad. But I'm Still looking forward to #6 of course. And will keep watching the series, hoping the cleverness of 2 and 3 will return.

Collector's Edition Also Director's Cut?
Yes, the discs are the same in both the standard Unrated Director's Cut and the Collector's Edition. They are both the Director's Cut. For $10 extra you are only getting the case basically being a toy.

Saw 4 - Loved the traps and the transitions during the story, also loved seeing Jigsaw's beginnings.

Saw V already out of stock?
Very few of the CE sets made it to stores, many do not work (be careful if purchasing online), bottom line is it was very expensive packaging and they did not make enough for demand..

What was in the box WAS filmed and showed up online during a reel of outtakes for Saw V. Once Detective Hoffman comes out of that box at the end, he walks down a hallway and finds Jill taking pictures of Jigsaws next victims out of that box. Attached to each photo is a plastic zip lock bag with a... Read More
