    USA Today Mike Clark

    Becomes exceedingly disgusting when it wallows in the psychological torture of a child, a no-no under any circumstances.

    Entertainment Weekly Owen Gleiberman

    Saw is a gristle-cut B psycho thriller that would like to tap the sickest corners of your imagination. It has a few moments of nightmare creepiness, but it's also derivative and messy and too nonsensical for its own good.

    The Hollywood Reporter Frank Scheck

    Boasts an undeniably original premise and clever plot machinations that lift it several notches above the usual slasher film level.

    Chicago Tribune Robert K. Elder

    Wan's tense, grisly cinematic morsel won't go down easy. But once it hits bottom, Saw is oddly satisfying, though the gag reflex never entirely goes away.

Fantastic movie! by nataliemariepool
I loved everything about this movie. Leigh Whannell and Cary Elwes are two very talented actors I loved the way James Wan directed it. Also Leigh Whannell's screenplay was so twisted and very good! I hope to see more of Leigh and James work they will go far in the future! If you're not a horror movie fan don't watch this! Not recommended for children.
