Inventive and diverting entertainment for fans of moody horror mysteries. And the end is cool. Say no more.

[Its] sadism is topped only by its absurdity.

More grisly than scary; not for kids.

The horror genre takes a new direction using extreme violence to support a surprisingly evocative story of redemptive torture.

Gore, violence, an excellent script, and top notch tension all put together with a whopper of an ending.

Having lifted itself up so high in some ways, it's a shame that, in the end, the film sinks down to the level of just being another dumb horror movie.

It's a brutal, vicious, well done psychological thriller that will leave you disturbed for days.

The inconsistencies and incongruities mar the overall result, but it's a fierce enough premise to excite some investors to believe this team can do better and perhaps even bloodier.

The setup is gripping, and the suspense intense, but the third act -- the payoff for sitting through such harrowing material -- is a major misfire.

There is such a storm of terrible dialogue in Saw as to legitimately draw comparisons to none less than Ed Wood.

Saw gets by on its mood of industrial dread.

While the great idea gets squandered, it remains a fun flick, certainly above the par of many other genre films.

Able to hold interest most of the way through, unraveling back stories that feel as if they might lead to something. But then the ending arrives.

As good an all-out, non-camp horror movie as we've had lately.

Blood splatter antics take over and make it a tough watch for the queasy and those who still consider themselves sane.

...though Elwes has received a lot of criticism for his work here, the actor delivers a surprisingly effective performance that feels believable and appropriate...

If the film had contained more scenes of intensity and less action, gore, twists and shocks, maybe it could have been a classic of the genre.
