I saw Saw Oct 26

Reviewing Saw is tricky because I don’t want to give too much away.

It’s a well-paced, tense thriller with more than a few nods towards 1995’s Se7en. Two men wake up in a room together with a blood-drenched body on the floor between them and soon realise, through the power of flashbacks, that they are the victims of a serial killer.

The cast are uniformly excellent and the direction suitably sharp. But for a film that is so much about the plot, it’s astoundingly good. There are just the right number of hints to let you think you’ve got the whole thing worked out and apparent goofs which turn out to be clues.

If you like a clever thriller, I heartily recommend Saw.
