The extended driving scene with Amanda (Shawnee Smith) and Cecil (Billy Otis) seen in the Unrated Director's Cut was supposed to have a track from Smith & Pyle, Shawnee's country-rock band, playing over the radio but it was unable to be included in the final cut. See more »
John Kramer says he doesn't care about the cost of surgery since he is very wealthy. However, when his insurance claim for an overseas treatment is denied by William, he seemingly forgets this fact. He simply derides William and just accepts defeat despite the fact that he, by his own admission, could afford to just travel overseas and receive the treatment anyway. Furthermore, why would John, who in a flashback castigated William for his immoral business practices, take insurance from him in the first place? See more »
SPOILER: There's an extra scene after the end credits: Amanda comes to the door of the place holding the little girl (the one that Hoffman "saves" at the end of Saw IV) and tells her "not to trust the one who saves her". See more »
Finally, the Saw series has regained some of it's previous credibility. Saw VI proved to be a very bloody, but clever mainstream romp.
There were a couple of great twists and turns, the gore was jacked up to a fantastic level of brutal extremity (easily beating the rather tame 5th installment), and most importantly, I, plus everyone in the theatre had a ball with it.
As well as being a valid continuation of the 'Saw' story, it worked well as a standalone film. The main twist actually had nothing do to with the previous movies... but don't get me wrong, you'll get plenty of answers for questions left open from the other films at the same time.
As you'd expect, the acting and production values weren't to flash, but the good screenplay and balls-out sadistic torture made this a vast improvement over the last couple of sequels. Apart from the first, I'm happy to say this is definitely one of my favorites from the series. 7.5/10.
Check it out. I found it to be a pleasant surprise.
