Obsessed with teaching his victims the value of life, a deranged, sadistic serial killer is abducting morally wayward people and forcing them to play horrific games for their own survival. Faced with impossible choices, each victim must struggle to win back his/her life, or else die trying.
Adam (Leigh Whannell) wakes up in a dank room across from Dr. Lawrence Gordon (Cary Elwes) and the body of a guy who has blown his own brains out. Not a happy place, obviously, and it gets worse when both men realize that they've been chained and pitted against one another by an unseen but apparently omniscient maniac who's screwing with their psyches as payment for past sins. Director James Wan, who concocted this grimy distraction with screenwriter Whannell, has seen Seven and any number of other arty existential-psycho-cat-and-mouse thrillers, so he's provided Saw with a little flash, a little blood, and a lot of ways to distract you from the fact that it doesn't make a whole hell of a lot of sense. Wan and Whannell (who's not the most accomplished actor, either) pile on the plot twists, which after some initially novel ideas become increasingly juvenile. Elwes works hard but looks embarrassed, and the estimable Danny Glover suffers as the obsessed detective on the case. The denouement will probably surprise you, but it won't get you back the previous 98 minutes.--Steve Wiecking

The film begins with Adam, laying in a bathtub full of water, as he begins to wake up, the water drains from the tub and he pulls himself out. Only to find he has been chained in a bathroom with another man (Dr. Lawrence) and a dead man with a gun in one hand and a tape recorder in another. So begins Saw. Throughout this film, we watch as Adam and Dr. Lawrence slowly stumble upon the sad truth as to watch has been done to them (and what could happen to them if they don't use their time wisely) and what could happen to their loved ones as well. As the story moves along Dr. Lawnrence is informed that his wife and child will be slain if he does not kill his new cellmate Adam. It is truly intense watching Dr. Lawrence slow spiral down the staircase of insanity as he finds of this outcome involving the murder of his wife and child. However, they do have help (unknowing to both sides) Detective David Tapp (Danny Glover) has become obsessed with the Jigsaw case and as time runs short for Adam and Lawrence, he quickly trys to come upon Jigsaw's new plan. However, we also see numerous flashback scenes involving Jigsaw's other "play things" Paul, Amanda and Mark. All whos outcome I will not spoil for you. In the end, it all comes down to one final gripping scene in which this all began. A dirty bathroom.
This movie, means alot to me and is one of my all time favorites due to its message. It's one I think anybody could relate to. We're all human, we all have selfish moments in which we take for granted those we love, be it family, friends, signifigant other or whoever else. We all have extreme limits in which our body/mind will push ourselves to do extreme, violent and mind numbing acts to save ourselves and our loved ones. Many things in which we are rarely forced to do, due to the modern day society we live in. Jigsaw is a refreshing villian in a sense because he really isn't one. While obviously he is doing disturbing evil things, its not for the sake of doing disturing evil things. In fact their is a quote he made from Saw 2.
"John: Seems to me that the knowledge of your sons impending death is causing you to act... Why is that we're only willing to do that, when a life is at stake?
Eric Matthews: I've always loved my son, it has never changed
John: No... no... It's changed now. You see, the knowledge of death... changes everything. If I were to tell you the exact date and time of your death... it would shatter everything.
This sums up the Saw franchise very well. The knowledge of changeable pending death and our ability (or those which don't have it in some cases) to dig deep and do what has to be done to live another day. This is a unique and horror franchise and this is where it all started. Enjoy.
LA VERDAD ES QUE EL PUZZLE ES UN PSICOPATA MUCHO MAS RETORCIDO QUE CUALQUIERA DE LOS QUE SALEN EN PELICULAS DE ESTE TIPO;Y MUCHO MAS H... DE P...A.
LAS PRUEBAS A LAS QUE PONE A SUS VICTIMAS SON RETORCIDAS Y A CUAL MEJOR.
TODA LA PELICULA ES GENIAL.PERO LOS CINCO ULTIMOS MINUTOS SON DE LO MEJORCITO E IMPREVISIBLE QUE TE PUEDAS IMAGINAR,LLENO DE TENSION Y ANGUSTIA Y QUE T DEJARA CON LA BOCA ABIERTA....PERO ESO NO QUIERE DECIR QUE EL RESTO DE PELICULA SEA MALO;NI MUCHO MENOS.
A TITULO PERSONAL A MI ME GUSTA MUCHO EL PLANO FINAL CON EL QUE ACABA LA PELICULA.
POR CIERTO SAW 2 Y ALGO MAS FLOJA PERO IGUAL DE GENIAL....OS LA RECOMIENDO
