This film is a horror film, but different to most. Most horror films revolve around some lone female character running from a zombie or derange lunatic or mutant or beast or etc etc etc. This film is different, very different. For a start, don't expect a hero to be there, there are no heroes. Where most horror films follow the "experience" from the victim, this film is almost more the opposite in a way, its more about thinking how the killer thinks!
Anyway, I am not going to go too much into the plot, because it will really ruin this film, but suffice to say this film's plot is something of a rollercoaster (at least it is for the first one), that you keep you guessing until the very last minute!
Basically, the film starts with two men waking up in a toilet chained to opposite walls, with no idea how they got there. They receive a mysterious and threatening message on a tape (basically, saying that they are in a game, where the prize is their lives, and failure to win results in death, and that the first one to kill the other is the winner, or something along these lines). In the middle of the room is a dead body, presumable the previous "player" of this sick game.
Basically, as the plot thickens, you find out that the killer behind this is the Jigsaw murderer, a killer who has evaded police, and is known for making sickening games getting the players to kill themselves, thereby keeping his hands clean. He selects people who in his eyes are not worthy of life (the reasons behind this become more evident in following films).
Basically, in this film there is some torture, some evil, and not a lot of good. Its just one of those films where really gruesome stuff happens SPOILER ALERT NEXT SENTANCE, such as a man sawing off his own leg, or a man having to crawl naked through razor wire. Bloody and gorey scenes I can assure you.
This film, the first one, spawned many sequels, and honestly, this one is by far the best in my honest opinion. It really is good, and the plot twists are just amazing. Assume nothing.
So, it all boils down to this, great plot, gorey scenes, and very good acting, a real hit. 5/5
I WANT TO PLAY A GAME!
Summary: A really good film
