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 more than a ridiculous rehash of the previous films and the ending doesn't come close to the brilliance of the first two.

1.5/5 By far the weakest entry in the series. Apart from two solid traps, the rest of the movie is a waste.

Saw 5 has hands down 2 of my favorite scenes in the entire franchise. The Cube and the final scene of Saw 5. The Cube was such an intense trap and great scene. The end scene of Saw 5 is probably top 3 favorite. How straight forward it is and how it isn't a twist at all. Hoffman straight tells Strahm what to do to live. Saw 5 is solid.

Oh wow! More hilarious blood and guts in a circus of death!

Probably the worst Saw movie!

Hated this. And that is after enjoying the others. The fifth installment in the Saw series fell COMPLETELY flat for me. IT was more or less a clip show of the past four movies retelling the story as if you just jumped into the series. This slowed it down significantly. It was an hour into the movie before we were even introduced to the test. Therefore, I was not invested in the character and did not care what happened to them. Overall, I love Saw, but I hated this addition to the franchise.

I know a lot of people didn't like this one, but I didn''t think it was bad. I enjoyed it, and the least amount of people die in this one. It makes me mad that the people traped are so stupid and didn't work together.

How this series made it so far,.I don't know. Should have stuck with 1, possibly 2 and just ended it

Saw 5 is not a great sequel by any Means but still adds to the story and the musical score by Charlie Clouser has gotten even more epic but over all don't see it unless you are a die hard Saw fan.

probably my favorite one after the original.

This is one of my favourite Saw films for sure. It has chilling, creative traps, Julie Benz (from Buffy, Angel and Dexter) and many more talented actors in it, plus doesn't get anhywhere near as ridiculous as 6 and 7 do.

I love how these movies continue and tie in to each other
Saw 5 was better then 4 but still not as good as 1 I love the story of 4 and 5 and seeing how it all unfolds it's great

Worthwhile watching

Another mindless Saw film that just plain out fails. Although the little twist at the end wasn't that bad, but again the repetiveness, and bad performances is what really tortured the originality out of this film.

Saw V doesn't do much more to the series except satisfy the hunger for more traps

It's plot isn't as inventive as the original three, or even the fourth one, and the same goes to its traps. Some clever twists and overall good performances cannot save this film from being the most lackluster installment yet.

Kinda looks cheap but a good twist

I'm basically guaranteed to enjoy anything SAW-related, but this is admittedly one of the weaker entries in the series. Tobin Bell is phenomenal as always, and the character of John Kramer AKA Jigsaw is a fascinating one to explore - even after his death - so the flashback scenes are legitimately great. However, there is so little focus put on the main 'game' in the film that it appears to be an after-thought, and I think it should have been better developed and thought through. The pacing of the film is jarringly slow compared to what the audience has become used to in this series, and I feel that is another flaw of the film. All in all though, there are still great traps and some stand-out scenes (most notably John's 'recruitment' of Hoffman) so it's by no means a waste of time to fans of the series.

saw series are the best movies I've seen ever.. I'm not talking about the horror as I don't see it's scaring at all, I meant the story itself, the plot and the ending which make you see the movie in a different eye I can't stop repeating all the series again and again and again
