Plot outline
Adam Faulkner and Dr. Lawrence Gordon wake up in a no longer used bathroom, being chained to opposite corners, not knowing each other and with a corpse who holds a gun and a microcassette recorder in the middle of the room.

Comment without spoilers
The beginning of the film wasn’t very promising, but the truth is that as the time passed, it kept going better and better, with a script that didn’t seemed quite complicated nor elaborated, but that in the end resulted to be a good one. Also, I like how the flashbacks are used, despite some of them are sometimes confusing.

The actors do a good job, with Danny Glover and Cary Elwes excelling, and maybe this one drawing more attention from me, because I always remember him from his work in The Princess Bride.

The soundtrack adapts itself quite good to the movie, and its tempo is also fine, helping the spectator to get absorbed by rhythm of the narrative and the evolution of the movie itself.

I have to admit that the general atmosphere of the movie is much better than I expected, and as I said in the previous paragraph, os very immersive, trapping the spectator from the beginning and keeping him thrilled the whole movie… and it’s been a long time since an American movie have been able to get this from me.

Concluding, despite I hadn’t high beliefs in this movie, it resulted to be a very good film that surprised me a lot in many ways, and from which I’d like to watch the sequel soon. Hopefully this same month.

WARNING! SPOILERS!

I loved the continuous twists in the movie, but one thing that I can’t get out of my head is that I don’t believe that John Kramer could spend more than 8 hours immobile in the same position, at least in his condition… is a good twist for the end, but from my point of view, not completely believable.
