I am admittedly a fairly avid Saw fan and was really looking forward to this movie after being slightly disappointed with the crappy-edited fourth. I have to say though, that this didn't disappoint and was a huge improvement. If you haven't fully understood Saw 3 and 4 you will never get this movie enough to enjoy it - like the other films it is confusing and moves about in time rather than running in linear fashion. It took me 2 or 3 times to see Saw IV and realise that almost the whole film (barring the autopsy) takes place at the same 'time' as Saw III, which is significant to this film as near the beginning we learn the fate of Corbett, the daughter of Jeff and Lynn.

I have seen this movie a few times already, and the story carries on from the fourth, with Agent Strahm locked in a room. He finds a secret doorway and plays a tape that tells him not to enter, but being obsessed with uncovering the truth he does and wakes up in a trap. He barely survives the trap, but is the only one alive that suspects Hoffman is a guilty apprentice. He gets taken off the case by the FBI after numerous bodies are found at the scene, but he revisits other crime scenes in the hope of exposing Hoffman. We see flashbacks of how Hoffman gets acquainted, and blackmailed by Jigsaw, after Hoffman murders his sister's killer trying to make it look like a jigsaw trap.

Meanwhile, five people who are unknowingly guilty (or close) of killing 8 people in a building-fire wake up in an underground sewer, forced to be tested through five rooms as "five become one". The weaker side of the storyline admmitedly, as the characters do not have a strong enough connection to the plot.

Hoffman though has his own plans to frame Strahm for the jigsaw traps and kill him off.

Spoilers if you have not seen Saw 4

Picking up exactly where Saw 4 left off, we find agent Strahm trapped inside Jigsaw's final resting place, discovering a secret passage he heads off but is incapacitated by Jigsaw's new apprentice detective Hoffman. Strahm is placed in a trap but survives and becomes obsessed with hunting down the apprentice focusing all his attention on Hoffman. Meanwhile five people wake up as the latest victims in Jigsaw's games, with the clock counting down against them they desperately try to survive to the end whilst uncovering a connection they all share.

The fifth entry into the franchise is pretty good but the Saw films have strictly become a fans only affair unlike other horror franchises anyone trying to enter in at this stage will be utterly lost, saying that when comparing Saw V to other fifth-quels in horror series it can hold it's head up high having not fallen into the cheesy campiness of say Nightmare or Friday the 13th franchises.

The major problem with this sequel is the story is too obsessed with the past. While its interesting to uncover what motivates certain characters far too much time is spent in the past, much of it filler, at the expense of furthering the present day story. Case in point, intricate detail is shown in how the barb wire trap in the first Saw was set up, from planning, kidnapping the victim, placing him in the trap, as well as the secret viewpoint it was observed from. It's totally unwarranted. In the first saw the scene was roughly 30 seconds long and wasn't integral to the story at all and neither is it here, yet its examined in meticulous detail but serves little purpose like many of the flashbacks featured in the film.

Jigsaw is dead. Does he have another apprentice to carry on his brand of bloody judgement? Will there be more elaborate traps to test the human condition to the max? You betcha.

If you are a fan of the series, and chances are that if you have sat down to watch this latest part then you must be, this one has enough about it to tickle the senses. Yet there's no getting away from the familiarity breeding contempt factor, narratively it offers nothing new, and irritatingly it becomes quite evident that it's obviously setting up the next film in the series. It's a sad state of affairs when the flashbacks involving Tobin Bell (Jigsaw) prove to be the film's only strengths, well there is the death traps to keep us awake I suppose... 4/10

Detective Hoffman (Costas Mandylor) continues Jigsaw's murderous games in this fifth instalment of the horror series. When he feels that his identity might be discovered, Hoffman has to use all his training as a detective to track down anything--and anyone--that might expose him.

I'm a huge fan of the SAW series and have watched them all at the cinema and again on DVD - SAW V is the first that I have seen on the Blu Ray format and I must say I was blown away with the incredible picture and sound quality. The film itself is excellent and a great addition to the series, digging even deeper into the already complex storyline with some of the sickest and clever traps yet. I see people on other reviews complaining that this series seems never-ending and this is true I guess but for me this just adds more and more to the fantastic story of Jigsaw. This one goes back to the original scenes from the previous films and shows how he set up the traps and captured some of his victims, so I imagine for anyone who is a fan of the series (like myself) then you will love this one. It is again very heavy on the gore and has some very graphic content but what do you expect really from an extreme edition (although I didn't really notice any extra scenes that weren't in the cinema version).

Overall this isn't the best of the films but is still a great addition to the series and with such a cliff0hanger ending I can't wait until October to see part 6 now to find out what happens next.
