...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.

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?'

Saw V isn't anywhere close to the best Saw movie, but it makes the entire series coalesce a little bit better.

... the Saw franchise continues to provide at least one decent horror film to look forward to at Halloween.

If you liked the previous four movies, there's little reason why you won't find at least a few things to enjoy in this one, but it's definitely getting to the point where it's dubious whether they can keep it going much longer...

Like High School Musical 3, which is opening against this film, Saw V is made for the fans.

There are only so many alternate flashbacks and massive explanations that a horror freak can take ... but I think the series is still amusing enough to warrant 90 minutes a year.

Surprisingly, the FIFTH installment of the series has a nice flow to it and is still able to dish out newly designed horrific torture scenes.

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.

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.

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?
