None of the Saw films have been able to capture the smarts of the original Saw – which was more of a suspense horror-thriller as opposed to the excessive and convoluted torture-horror installments that followed. The film was focused around the carefully crafted, but simple, scenario Adam and Lawrence found themselves in – not the increasingly complicated traps featured in later films. It was two men in a room with competing goals – each was given the tools necessary to reclaim their lives.
