This is the first Saw movie I’ve ever seen! :)
Sure the gore was extreme and shocking, but I thought the plot was surprisingly gripping and emotionally compelling! The tension throughout is great, especially in the third act, and it’s easy to see why John Kramer is such a fascinating horror movie character. He’s played brilliantly by Tobin Bell, and has a compelling storyline that’s clearly been worth following over the years. But still, goddamn! He is one satisfyingly cruel son of a bitch.
