Saw V (2008)
Critic Consensus: If its plot were as interesting as its torture devices, or its violence less painful than its performances, perhaps Saw V might not feel like it was running on fumes.

Critic Reviews for Saw V
Saw V is a terrible combination: grisly and tedious. Let's just call it bloody dull.
Even the most die-hard of Saw fans won't credit how tedious, lame and pointless this fourth sequel manages to be.
Saw V isn't anywhere close to the best Saw movie, but it makes the entire series coalesce a little bit better.
The latest and least of the Saw films is just plain boring and even a little tame -- albeit by the standards of a genre that helped bring the phrase "torture porn" into the lexicon.
Audience Reviews for Saw V
The series has definitely run out of gas, proving that killing Jigsaw in the third film was a big mistake. Most of what we see here is nothing other than a ridiculous rehash of the previous films and the ending doesn't come close to the brilliance of the first two.
Well it looks like its gonna go on and on this franchise, yet more weird and wonderful traps of torture and death but some are getting slightly unimaginative these days. The plot twists n turns like a slippery eel and includes plenty of flashbacks referring to the previous flicks and shows how 'Jigsaw' did stuff. Kinda interesting but to be honest I have forgotten what happened in all of the last 3 films (I only remember the first films plot line really) so this makes this fifth film hard to follow haha. Lets be honest here...the films thing is gruesome traps, thats why we are here, and to be honest (again) as said they are good but getting less visionary. The best being a really wincing blood letting test near the end for a woman and man and the final trap being REALLY nasty for the pursuing cop...but you don't see the whole sick outcome as the this is where the film ends very abruptly..shame. Not bad but getting atad too long in the tooth now, it should end.
Saw 5 is better than Saw 4, but its still just another Saw film that dissapointed me. The story was ok, I enjoyed the detail on Hoffmans story in past films, and the story that follows the five victims, but it just felt hollow like now they aren't even trying. The cast is another cast from Saw, they are just paid to talk like they are smart and scream when being tortured. The gore is great, its one of the goriest in the entire series. This was not the best Saw film, but it was an improvement over the fourth film.
