The best thing about this-and any-Saw film is the sick production design. Whoever's responsible for creating these disgustingly grungy chambers of death deserves an Oscar for scuzziness.

See you next year, I guess. Sigh.

Será que os fãs da série não percebem que o conceito dos flashbacks e de mexer com a cronologia dos capítulos anteriores é uma forma encontrada pelos produtores para que possam refazer o original de novo e de novo e de novo?

A disappointing film that breaks all of the series' own rules.

This is definitely the worst film of the series, and probably the worst horror film I've seen all year.

An insult to fourth-rate ripoffs of Se7en, and even that may not be harsh enough.

Being the fifth annual go-round for this durable splatter franchise, this film has really no power to change any minds.

...hardcore fans of Jigsaw's exploits will probably find something here worth embracing.

A cut above its pretentious predecessors; the graphic set-pieces -- including an opening inspired by Poe's 'The Pit and the Pendulum' -- deliver the gory goods.

Square in the middle of the series, quality-wise: though the new film has some unabashedly dumb moments, its plot lacks the pathetic contortions that we saw in Saw IV

Saw V or High School Musical 3? Make your choice. All of a sudden, picking between self-mutilation and disembowelment doesn't sound so frightening, does it?

Saw V may still have the power to make audiences squirm, but only for the most obvious reasons.

Nails? Where else but in a Saw movie can a puzzle-minded sadist cobble together elaborate torture contraptions from the same Home Depot that provides his replacement windows and his garage storage solution?

Saw V is a terrible combination: grisly and tedious. Let's just call it bloody dull.

The ad campaign for Saw V assures the viewer, 'You won't believe how it ends.' This is true, because you won't believe it could possibly be this lame.

Yes, it's more of the same. But if you've been 'Saw'-ing away for the last four years, why not take in 'Saw V?'

The death of nearly every character in the franchise isn't enough to prevent the makers from grinding out another edition of Saw. Could they just finish the job?

The Saw movies have a convoluted storyline for the same reason Playboy has articles. It gives the consumer an easy excuse.
