Saw

[Amazon Link] [2.5 stars] [IMDb Link]

I saw Saw. Did you see Saw? So I saw Saw, sue me. Sigh. What can I say about Saw?

Well, a couple things: Cary Elwes looks worse in this movie alive than he did while being dead in The Princess Bride. The girl who played the ditzy receptionist in Becker (Shawnee Smith, I looked it up) plays a more serious part here; gosh, she can do more than play ditzy.

And, yes, it's all moody and icky and creepy. But I had a hard time buying the premise that an evil mastermind can really plot things out quite so meticulously. And when his hideous motivation is finally revealed, it's kind of hard to buy that too.
