I'd say saw is a great movie, but it's definitely not a good choice for younger kids. If your child is into gore, violence, and brutality then I'm sure your child will get a good scare out of Saw. Very good story behind it all, and it'll for sure give you a chill down your spine. Gives you a whole different perspective of being thankful and grateful for what you have... which may seem surprising. If you are wondering about inopropriate scenes, saw isn't as bad as you may have expected. Includes very minor drinking, and drugs. This thriller contains absolute zero nudity, or anything of the sort. Contains frequent swearing, but nothing absolutely terrible. Lots of gore and blood if your into that kind of thing... one scene a man saws his leg off, another a family tied with ropes (including children) some gunshots, one brutal scene of gunshots, but nothing too alarming; another gun scene handled by a mother. Anyways, a modern AND classic scary movie, with a mix up of horror, thriller, action, mystery, and sifi. This will for sure give you a good rush at the end when you see how it all happened. Great movie, enjoy!
