If you are a fan of horror and of the SAW franchise, then there is no reason not to own this. A credit to the existing series of films, this latest addition does not disappoint.
Following on from the forth SAW film, the film opens with a bang and within minutes has your gripped to your seat. This is vastly down to the expert job with special effects, which (at points) has you staring at your screen in disbelief as is the extent to how realistic this film is.
The story-line, without giving anything away, is world-class. But requires the viewer to have watched the previous installments to make head-or-tail of it. Those aware of the previous four, will see the genius behind the script and story, which begins to answer all the un-answered questions. And ends in saw-tradition in a climactic way. It also, however, opens many more questions leading to a sequel.
The acting is also superb, brining back all the old characters, as well as introducing new saw-victims, who must endure yet another hair-raising, an often sickening experience to survive.
In high-definition the film is truly brought to life and is a brilliant experience to watch. Special features are some what basic, but has in-depth featurettes of all the challenges and traps within the movie.
All-in-all a brilliant purchase. One which the small review, barely begins to capture.
10/10 - A must buy for all horror/SAW fans.
