StorylineWhen detective Eric Matthews is called to a crime scene of a victim of Jigsaw, he finds a lead to the place where he is hidden. Once there, he realizes that Jigsaw trapped his son Daniel Matthews with three women and four men in a shelter, and they are inhaling a lethal nerve gas. If they do not use an antidote within two hours, they will die. Eric follows with increasing desperation the death of each member of the group in monitors, while trying to convince Jigsaw to release his son.
Spoilers *** This movie isn't bad if you can hold your suspension of disbelief long enough. I mean, there are so many thing that characters do in this film that every audience member is sitting there going "oh come on, please..." The guy cutting his own skin off to get the number
- just too dumb, there's no way that character would have done that
And the cops son is dropped in the middle of these criminals who were done wrong by the cop and somehow that's supposed to put him in danger? What? They're so worried about getting out, they also going to try and kill an innocent kid who has nothing to do with their predicament simply because he's the son of the man who put them there? It's absurd. And HOW does Jigsaw KNOW these people were set up? What possible way could he have found this out and no one else did?
It's ANOTHER one of those movies where things have to happen a certain way, everything has to fall neatly into place for its outcome and amazingly they do (like Cry Wolf, The Game or Flight Plan for example). This could have been a lot better if it had just been SLIGHTLY more believable.
