While this film may be somewhat reminiscent of David Fincher's Se7en, in regards to a psychopathic maniac who believes he's doing the world a favour in getting rid of some "unfit" people, the similarity in this case does not work against the plot. And what a plot it is.

We begin with two strangers who wake up in a sealed bathroom, a dead body lying between them and they're both chained to the wall. They receive instructions on what they need to do to get out of their situation, but it's instructions which go against every moral fibre that we know. But the question the movie poses is "what are you willing to do to survive?" And how you answer that question should tell you alot about yourself.

The script meanders magnificently and keeps you on the edge of your seat, and the final twist at the end is bound to knock you off it. The gore does get quite bloody, but it only adds to the whole unnerving experience. The only weak point would have to be the acting, not from everyone mind you, just Cary Elwes, who seems to have stepped in from some "High British tea drama" (5 out of 5, by Carlisle Johnson)

Awakening from a drugged stupor, Dr. Lawrence Gordon finds himself chained to a pipe in a dingy bathroom, with another man in the same situation across the room . The men are the latest victims of the Jigsaw Killer, a maniac who uses elaborate traps to test his victims' dedication to life.

Given six hours, a hacksaw, and a bullet, Dr. Gordon tries to figure out a way to freedom, hoping his kidnapped family can survive the nightmare as well. Hot on the Jigsaw's trail is Detective David Tapp, an equally-as-insane cop who was once the victim of the Jigsaw's evil scheme.
