What a dreadful waste of time & money...
6 November 2006 | by (England) – See all my reviews

I thought the first one was great. The second one was not so good as it moved away from the idea behind one and reminded me more than a little of "Cube". However "Saw 3" - well it's rubbish & about as scary as an angry kitten.

The acting is really atrocious and the plot a totally pathetic joke. All of the gory scenes were very fast, there was no build up at all and they were as gory as possible without any point leaving you to just cringe but not care at all.

The ending painfully long with "educational" flashbacks for anyone not remembering 1 & 2 or that were senile enough to not remember what happened 10min ago. It was filled with boring predicable "twist" after "twist" leaving a 'message' & it went on and on and on and on…

My husband said it was one of the worst films he'd ever seen & that the people that allegedly fainted whilst watching it must have done so out of boredom...
