The infamous bathroom trap has appeared in every film except Saw IV (2007). It appears in Saw (2004), Saw II (2005), Saw III (2006) and Saw 3D. The large iron door that leads to the bathroom can be seen in Saw V (2008) and appears in Saw VI (2009) through archive footage. See more »
(at around 1h 4 mins) After Bobby has extracted his teeth to obtain the code for the door, the numbers are seen etched on the roots of the teeth. It would be impossible to do so without first cutting open the gums. See more »
The seventh and last installment lays down all its cards... or at least the rest of its cards. The series certainly went out with a bang to say the least. Fans and/or gorehounds will love it, and there's enough entertainment for some of those who aren't overly familiar with the series or forgot a thing or two in the previous six films. It is possibly the most appealing "Saw" film, knowing that it's ACTUALLY the finale. But where does that leave us with quality? For a ninety minute film with numerous returning characters and just as appealing brand new characters, not to mention the burden of trying to keep originality with a redundant back-story, "Saw 3D" does pretty good given the obstacles it's forced to work with. What most people will probably criticize is the lack of twists and turns that made us love the original so much... but lets be honest, has there even been any jaw dropping twists in the series since "Saw IV" or even as far back as "Saw II"? It's up for debate, but the story in the seventh installment is pretty straight forward and that may let some people down. Given that it's a seventh film in a series with impressive continuity, "Saw 3D" is actually a really great film for what it is.
