Storyline

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.

Goofs

(at around 1h 3 mins) When Lynn is drilling the four holes in Jigsaw's head for the operation, tape is on the drill to mark the maximum depth. The placement of the tape changes positions throughout the scene, between 1/2 inch and 1 1/2 inches. See more »

Alternate Versions

In Germany the film was released by Kinowelt in three different versions: the uncut theatrical (US R-rated) version (with a SPIO/JK approval, released in three editions: standard amaray, steelbook and 2 disc limited collector's edition), FSK-18 version (cut by 5 minutes) and FSK-16 version (cut by 21 minutes). The US unrated version of the film did not get a SPIO/JK approval and was therefore not released officially in Germany (it was however released in Austria, resulting in high exports to Germany).

This movie will please hardcore Saw fans
28 October 2006 | by skabrinaSee all my reviews

This movie, as always with the previous Saw installments, has once again proved to be worthwhile. The set-ups were great, the torture devices and scenes were unimaginable with NO limits whatsoever, and the ingenious traps Jigsaw puts on all of his victims were unbelievable. Saw 3 will keep you wondering what will be the outcome of the end. No doubt did this movie impress me and hopefully Saw fans as well. Now, as a warning, this movie did have some EXTREMELY sickening scenes with constant groans from audience in theater, but will nonetheless please its viewers. I highly recommend fans, and anyone who loves a good gross-out horror movie buff to see this latest Saw installment.
