Adam wakes up in a dank room across from Dr. Lawrence Gordon and the body of a guy who has blown his own brains out. Not a happy place, obviously, and it gets worse when both men realize that they’ve been chained and pitted against one another by an unseen but apparently omniscient maniac who’s screwing with their psyches as payment for past sins.
A brilliant start to the Saw series. The film is suspenseful, well acted and very clever. The other films relied too much on gore, but this was where it all began start.
Danny Glover looks a little out of his comfort zone in this film.
