When Jigsaw pulls out the tape player at the end of the movie, his thumb is on top of the tape player, nowhere near the play button on the side of it. However, we distinctly hear a click (as if the play button had just been pressed), and the tape begins to play, even though the play button was never pressed. See more »

i decided, just as it was getting dark, that i was going to watch saw 3, and with much anticipation (after the first two), i did just that. the movie opens up, alike the first - reintroducing the bathroom, so i wasn't feeling too bad.
the movie's a tad confusing, and i spent more or less, the whole time trying to keep the vomit down in my stomach, so that didn't leave me with too much mentality to make sense of the whole reminiscent, nostalgic, deja-vu way the storyline was written.
the whole, disgusting gory, blood thing just isn't my style of horror. thumbs up for the excellent twists though! definitely, not for those with a faint heart, or a weak stomach. maybe my anticipation of the first two, brought my hopes up a bit too high, but it really wasn't as fantastic as i expected.
go and watch it though, only if you've seen the first two.
