Betsy Russell was in the same outfit during the hospital scene after which Jill loses Gideon, as she is in the interrogation scene. The camera slowly pans to the mirror to transition into the interrogation scene with Agent Peter Strahm. The sets were right next door to each other and Betsy literally ran to the interrogation set for the transition to work properly. See more »
(at around 1h 8 mins) In a flashback, John is shown abducting Cecil at a Chinese street festival celebrating the Year of the Pig. The last two years of the Pig were in 1995-1996 and 2007-2008. This does not fit well with Jill's statement that these events took place shortly after John's diagnosis with cancer in 2004. See more »

Now you might think that from my title I'm going to slate Saw 4, well I'm not.
Like most I'm an avid fan of the series and when Halloween rolls around I'm always wondering will it be good how you keep a genre like Horror fresh.
Well they done it again while don't get me wrong there is a lot of gore in there its seems a lot more toned down and more apportite for the film instead of just torture torture torture, which I feel really helps the film develop into its own skin.
The story line focuses more on jigsaw's back story this time round and how he became to who he was at the end of Saw 3, this allowment of character development I feel is vital to the story as we have always wanted to know more about the man behind the machine.
The story also focuses on Rigg and his story into the sick world of Saw, this film picks up where Saw 3 left off so its the same thing that Jeff went through he has to try help other people decide their own fate.
The ending is a good one but obviously never as good as the first one its safe to say I doubt they will ever be able to recapture what they had to begin with.
My advice for anyone still waiting to watch this film is keep an open mind about it and never set expectations too high because this is a good film and you should really give it a try before dismissing it.
