As we're intrigued by the trailer for SAW II, Mutsumi and I rented the first SAW this weekend as we'd never seen it. Doing this fortunately saved us from wasting $20 at the theaters on the sequel as SAW was one of the worst movies I've seen in a long time! The set-up and plot had promise, but in the spirit of brutal honesty, I have to say that Cary Elwes gave one of the most pathetic, unengaging, plastic, painful-to-watch acting performances ever captured on film in the last 30 years! This guy cannot act his way out a paper bag. Totally ruined this movie, making it laughable at times, and I will question ever going to see anything he's ever in. Don't believe the hype on this one. If you haven't already SAW, don't waste your time.
