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.

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

Woefully ponderous, convoluted and improbable.

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.

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.

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?

After the abomination that was SAW IV, this film does redeem the previous film a bit. Getting a new director, this film does what, in my opinion, part IV should… More

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,… More

It was gory and horrible. Exactly like all the other ones.

This movie just drags and drags, delivering very little. All we seem to be seeing is the other movies again and again, fragmented and foggy. Everything you… More
