Product Description

The dvd release of 'Saw' as shown in UK cinemas.

From Amazon.co.uk

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

5.0 out of 5 stars DIABOLICALLY CLEVER AND RIVETING...SEE SAW... 15 Jun 2005
By Lawyeraau HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
This film, which was shot in a scant eighteen days, is stunningly original in concept. I confess that I was totally riveted to the screen for the entire running time of the film, as was my son. Edgy and somewhat surreal, the film clearly demonstrates that the director, James Wan, can certainly do more with less, as the film was shot on a shoestring budget. Yet, he also knows that less is sometimes more, as he keeps the actual amount of on screen gore to a minimum. In doing so, he forces a viewer's imagination to work overtime, which serves to create more suspense than a visual statement of the obvious.
The plot is diabolically clever. It appears that a maniac is on the loose, placing people in fiendish situations that are truly matters of life or death, virtually ensuring that someone dies. The deaths occur in a highly unusual manner, indicative of a complex and maniacal mind at work. Detectives Tapp (Danny Glover) and Sing (Ken Leung) are on the case and hot on this maniac's trail. When on the verge of his capture, however, everything goes wrong, and Detective Tapp becomes somewhat unhinged after a total debacle ensues.
Meanwhile, Dr. Lawrence Gordon (Cary Elwes), who was himself a suspect in the case, suddenly finds himself in a filthy, ancient, cavernous bathroom, along with a young man named Adam (Leigh Whannell). Both are chained to pipes in the wall and are disoriented and unsure as to how they got there. Between them and just beyond their reach lies an apparently dead man in a pool of blood, ostensibly killed with the gun that he still holds in his hand. Then, Dr. Gordon and Adam discover that a series of cryptic instructions have been left for them to follow. Each instruction clearly delineates just how precarious their position is.

5.0 out of 5 stars You dont know me, but I know you 21 Feb 2005
Format:DVD
What a surprising film. At last, a fresh, original horror film that isnt Japanese!
Some of you may think Im overrating this movie, you may even think its a load of crap. However, if you do think that, then i would strongly have to disagree. Im not a huge fan of the old video nasties (Driller Killer, The Burning, etc), but I would say of all the more recent horror movies, Saw is as close as you get to being in the spirit of the "Nasties".
If you are reading this, you are probably already familiar with the basic story of the movie, so I'll spare you the whole "Once upon a time..." section, and get right to the good/bad bits.
In actual fact, I didnt focus on any gaffs in the film, which is surprising for me! I just sat back and went on a rollercoaster ride, and I'd advise you (assuming your a hardcore horror fan, like myself!) to do the same.
Word of warning, this is quite a violent, grizzly film. While it does contain a fair share of on-screen violence, it does sometimes revert to the old "Texas Chainsaw" trick, in that it doesnt show you everything, but leaves some stuff to the imagination. However, as you can see this is the Uncut version, this does not happen too often!
The Killer in this movie is quite unique, in that he doesnt actually kill people, he finds horrific ways for them to kill themselves, his "games" as he calls them. He also isnt the usual "guy in the white mask" as in most horror flicks. He has two main 'forms' in this film. First, we see him in a black/red robe, which isnt completely original, but still not the white mask were so sick of. He does, however, have a pig-mask (I thought it looked like a pig anyway, correct me if Im wrong), which is quite creepy and disturbing.

5.0 out of 5 stars DARE YOU SEE SAW!! !! !! !! 19 Dec 2005
Format:UMD Mini for PSP
SAW is one of my favorite films of 2005 and has an absolutley great story which goes well with some decent acting (although the acting can be pretty bad at times).
As i was saying earlier probably the main reson i likr this film so much is because of it's amazing story. The other thing you have to watch in this film is the ending which is one of the best a horror film has ever has, i wont tell you what happens besause it will spoil it but it really will stick with you!
This film isn't really violent but very sadistic at times. The killer in this film doesn't really kill people, he tests them and finds ways of making them kill them-selves because he doesn't like the way people live their lives, he thinks the gift of life isn't something you should waste! (or in short he is completley and totaly mad!)
This is a great film that any horror fan with a PSP should get!

3.0 out of 5 stars Blood and a Plot 6 Oct 2007
Format:DVD
When I sat down to watch this I had no idea what it was about. And it does not take long to find out. We start off with two men chain to opposite sides of a very grimy and disgusting large bathroom. In between them is the body of a man that shot himself in the head. The corpse has a gun in one hand and a tape player in the other. Everything just out of the two men's reach. And then the game begins; they each find an envelope in their pocket with tapes in them. And all they have is a hacksaw each that would never cut through the chains they wear.

Then we watch as the story unfolds. The two victims figure out that an ingenious serial killer known as the jigsaw killer placed them there. This plot was well thought out. And the killer has left them no choice. They have to get out our pay the consequences.
