Saw (2004)
Review by Bradley Frohloff

8 / 10
This was a fairly unique experience for its time. Unlike many movies, Saw manages to continually advance its plot whilst successfully making it to the conclusion without its audience likely having guessed correctly who is behind it all before the reveal. It is also one of the few movies which has some substance to its use of torture sequences as opposed to the myriad of sequels which add layers of plot twists to an ever-growing convoluted mess of a storyline all so they can continue to show people getting fucked up through various forms of torture.

Overall, Saw is an exciting watch for first-time viewers with good twists and turns.
Saw (2004)
Review by Alex Martel

7 / 10
By far the best movie in the franchise, Saw left a huge impression when I saw it as a teenager, but it hasn't aged that well in hindsight.

Some of the acting is amateurish, and the plot has many elements that can very generously be decribed as "extremely convenient".

That being said, it was a wildly intense and original film at the time it was made (though the wave it created quickly became tired and stagnant), the torturous traps are used to much better effect than in any of its follow ups, and it helped to jolt some life back to the popularity of the horror genre.
