Saw V utterly mimics the original film's formula -- that awful basement, those cops chasing clues in what we assume to be the same time-frame, those awful devices of death.

It's not a good sign when watching someone stick their hand into a table saw is easier than listening to them recite dialogue.

Jigsaw has seen better days. That's saying a lot, considering he was last spotted on a mortuary slab, his rotting flesh a sickly shade of gray as a medical examiner nonchalantly sliced open his stomach.

Dullest film in series is still brutal and bloody.

The Saw series isn't nearly as interesting without Jigsaw, but it's getting harder and harder to find ways to include him in increasingly-desperate sequels.
October 24, 2008
Saw V boasts little of the cleverness and ingenuity that has made Saw a surprisingly consistent slasher series.

What will they do next? Probably rip more people off. It's worked for them so far.

October 24, 2008
Deadly traps may remain the bread and butter of the Saw series, but the real trick has become keeping these fetid sequels moderately fresh.

October 24, 2008
As rote and mechanical as one of Jigsaw's traps, though at least Jigsaw's traps are suspenseful and ingenious. The movie is neither of those things.

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

It's questionable who suffers more in this torture porn sequel - the victims or the audience. But glib lines aside, there is no point in continuing the franchise unless the filmmakers can up the ante in the gruesome/anguish/torture stakes

Now I can officially say that the SAW franchise has run out of gas. Everything and everyone is just going through the motions here.

The weakest installment so far.

Saw V attempts to make the audience feel smart for sticking along for so long, only when it's all said and done you'll feel like a fool for sitting through this disappointment.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
October 24, 2008
More careful viewers might be starting to question the validity of this ongoing story: a five-film-too-long journey that has never felt more arbitrarily plotted than in the final 10 minutes of Saw V.

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
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
October 26, 2008
The Saw franchise has become a weekend-before-Halloween tradition; ironically, though, it has ceased to be a horror series.
