Following Jigsaw's grisly demise, Mark Hoffman is commended as a hero, but Agent Strahm is suspicious, and delves into Hoffman's past. Meanwhile, another group of people are put through a series of gruesome tests.
As a deadly battle rages over Jigsaw's brutal legacy, a group of Jigsaw survivors gathers to seek the support of self-help guru and fellow survivor Bobby Dagen, a man whose own dark secrets unleash a new wave of terror.
Bodies are turning up around the city, each having met a uniquely gruesome demise. As the investigation proceeds, evidence points to one suspect: John Kramer, the man known as Jigsaw, who has been dead for over 10 years.

When Kimberly has a violent premonition of a highway pileup she blocks the freeway, keeping a few others meant to die, safe...Or are they? The survivors mysteriously start dying and it's up to Kimberly to stop it before she's next.
Jeff is an anguished man who grieves and misses his young son that was killed by a drunk driver in a car accident. He has become obsessed for revenge against the drunk driver, judge, and only witness who refused to testify; he has also become neglectful of his daughter. Lynn Denlon is a skilled surgeon that is cheating on her husband and suffering from depression. Both are abducted and brought to Jigsaw's warehouse, where they must play two separate games: Jeff must choose whether to save or let the people he holds responsible for the death of his son die, while Lynn must keep Jigsaw alive until Jeff completes his tests, or face the deadly consequences.Written by
The script was being constantly added to during production. Leigh Whannell remained on set throughout filming so he could keep working on it. One climactic scene between Shawnee Smith and Bahar Soomekh was scribbled down on napkins only five minutes before it was shot. See more »
(at around 1h 11 mins) In the original Saw, Cary Elwes's character Dr. Gordon is very clearly blond. However, in the bathroom preparation scene in this film, Elwes's stand-in has very dark hair. Though it is tempting to blame this on the extreme contrast of the shot, Jigsaw's beard still registers as blond. See more »

While not being a huge horror fan I immensely enjoyed Saw 1 and 2 basically for their intelligent writing and great plot twists.
There is a fine line however from creating an intelligent horror flick and just writing a gore fest, this was quickly crossing that boundary and losing what was great about the previous 2 films. It used the age old solution to creating todays movies, either shock the audience or wow them with special effects.
If you took out all the gore from the film there would be very little of a movie left and it certainly would not warrant a release, as the story and acting alone are not enough to carry it. Whereas with the previous movies could hold itself up with the brilliant stories.
Considering this I sincerely hope they don't create a Saw 4.
