Saw still has all its teeth....By PaulaWestwood (397 reviews) from Ashton-Under-Lyne , 27 Oct 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]Despite the demise of Jigsaw, there are still pieces missing for our detectives to puzzle over, and Rigg (Lyriq Bent) in particular has to face his worst nightmares to try and solve the latest slayings, this time the particular brand of dispatching people has been arranged to involve him directly. Despite being the 4th outing, and with what could potentially have been the knock out punch when Jigsaw passed away in Saw III, this is still intelligent well put together horror, no simple slasher bloodfest here, just a well crafted excellent film in a series that has not dulled or worn with time. I'm no real horror fan, but for my money you can keep these coming, would I say see saw.. you bet I would !

Still got some teethBy RJNeb2 (1016 reviews) from London , 27 Aug 2013Not content with having its chief evil protagonist biting the dust at the end of Saw III, this fourth go-round rather cleverly goes back to the origins of why Jigsaw became the evil machinator. Running in tandem with that is the premise that he also cultivated another acolyte to continue his work. It all dovetails rather nicely though be warned, the traps are nastier, the blood is gorier and the opening autopsy scene can only safely be watched with a sick-bag handy.
Really not very goodBy sarahwri (60 reviews) , 16 Oct 2012Definitely the worst Saw so far (i-iv). Lots of random stuff happening didn't really make any sense when you get to the end and realise what's been happening its just 'oh'. The deaths aren't even particularly imaginative. Makes Saw III look like a classic in comparison.
Try something elseBy orangeboy (63 reviews) from Cardiff , 09 Sep 2012There are so many shlock horror movies released these days its hard for them to differentiate themselves.
There are those like the first Saw, Friday 13th, Halloween etc that stand out and The Omen was the only series which managed to maintain its horror levels.
To be fair to the Saw films, they do manage to keep the thread going if only due to the appeal of Jigsaw played brilliantly by Tobin Bell. All other characters are frankly bystanders.
There are some clever gruesome puzzles for each unlucky victim to unwind, but by now these film are essentially just a gory Krypton Factor competition. If that's your bag then fill your boots. If not then don't bother.
Brilliant yet againBy JustinandNorma (4 reviews) , 22 Jun 2012This one really gets you gripped, the storyline really is quite complex. which is by no means bad, along with the usual nasty traps and games it makes it yet again a very very good film. cant wait for the next one :-)
worth watchingBy melrutter (9 reviews) , 30 Jan 2012good addition to the saw line up, not like other horror movies full of blood etc these are more for the actual storyline. i havnt been disappointed yet by a saw film.
you get to see more of the background in this one.
