(at around 33 mins) According to the DVD commentary, Xavier's retort to Addison was improvised each take, and got progressively more vulgar. The crew picked the line "The only door you know how to open...", thinking it was the most clever and funny. See more »
(at around 1h 11 mins) The first time we see the number 9 on Addison's neck, it has a curvy line, looking like an upside-down 6. Later, when there are flashes of the previous numbers (at around 1h 21 mins), the 9 shows up with a straight line. See more »
Differences in the Unrated version of SAW II include:
When the police are entering the Wilson Steel warehouse, three short cuts are shown of Jigsaw upstairs, realizing the police have arrived. When he realizes this, he calmly goes back to what he was working on.
When the police are approaching Jigsaw several scenes are added where he is eating Cheerios (as stated in the commentary on the original R-rated DVD).
Jigsaw has a few extra lines of dialogue with Detective Matthews, mentioning that he has "wiped the slate clean", and that most people are merely "sleepwalking".
When Obi is trapped in the oven, he attempts to break the glass on the far side as he is burning alive.
The scene of Amanda thrashing around in the syringe pit is extended.
In the bathroom, Charlie Clouser's score begins as Xavier begins cutting off his skin, and continues until he dies from his throat being slashed.
The opening scene with "The Venus Headtrap" is extended and the song "Irresponsible Hate Anthem (Venus Headtrap Mix)" is playing in the background.
The scene where Matthews is beating up Jigsaw is extended with one extra punch.
Amanda didn't have to say 'she'd played the game before.'
None of the others would have known who Amanda was. If she was simply acting and pretending she was as terrified as the rest of them,don't you all think it was unnecessary to say 'I survived his game before'. It seems that she only mentioned it for the audience. People watching would probably assume she was making reference to the first film but if she was in on it the whole time why does it matter? My guess is that she was enjoying fooling the others and being a little egotistical, she wanted to come across as the experienced one who knew more than the others. She did seem braver and more composed just because she had gone through the experience the first time. Does anyone else think it was unnecessary to explain her past except for misleading the audience?
