The directorial debut from filmmaker James Wan, this psychological thriller comes from the first screenplay by actor Leigh Whannell, who also stars. Whannell plays Adam, one of two men chained up in a mysterious chamber. The other, Dr. Gordon (Cary Elwes), like Adam, has no idea how either of them got there. Neither of them are led to feel optimistic by the man lying between them dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Together, Adam and Dr. Gordon attempt to piece together what has happened to them and who the sadistic madman behind their imprisonment is. Also starring Danny Glover and Monica Potter, Saw premiered at the 2004 Sundance Film Festival.~Matthew Tobey
This was my first time seeing this movie, and I really dug it! For some reason I always thought it was just a long Marilyn Manson or Tool video type of movie but I was wrong. It definitely was worth watching and kept my interest. The PQ and SteelBook look fantastic!
Unexpected steelbook treatment, even beyond the surprise of getting this film on 4K at all! The packaging is cool, and even though the steelbook is glossy on the exterior, at least it also includes a protective slipcover to keep fingerprints to a minimum. 4K video upgrade is there, just not a huge increase in resolution since this was a low budget movie. There is one new bonus feature in the form of a 1-hour long retrospective the 4K disc, which also appears on the accompanying blu-ray along with older special features that have been around since the uncut special edition DVD.
