Now that you've seen it, what did you think? For the fifth straight year in a row, Lionsgate has brought us another new twisted Saw movie. This year we're up to Saw V and following the crazy reveal at the end of Saw IV last year, it was anyone's guess as to what would happen next. Did it improve upon Saw IV or was it the worst in the series? Were the traps better or worse than the previous films? And most importantly, what's going to happen next? Was anyone annoyed that this just seemed to be a filler movie setting up Saw VI? Sound off below, leave your thoughts, and let us know what you thought of Saw V.
Beware of spoilers below! To fuel the fire, I actually thought Saw V was one of the best in the series so far. It was a definite step up from Saw IV, but not as good as Saw II, in my own opinion. I loved the mix of investigation with Agent Strahm as well as the room-to-room game with the five victims, just because we got to sample some of everything from past films. But I'm curious as to what all of this meant? So we know Hoffman is still involved. But what was in the box that Jill picked up? Was the head FBI guy, Erickson, the next big victim? Despite these questions, I still thought it was one of the better Saw entries.
What did you think of Saw V? What's next? Did you believe how it ended?
